Understanding Blockchain Technology in Agriculture

Sep. 25, 2018

Blockchain technology allows for the digital transfer of value using a distributed or decentralized ledger that is immutable, anonymous, and secure. Blockchain technology has also provided the verification and networking needed to enable “smart contracts”, which allow users to codify significant parts of a workflow process, agreement, or task. Blockchain technology has many applications, including solutions to problems in agriculture, including traceability of food products, finance, insurance, and supply chain transactions.  Our partner the National Agricultural Law Center is hosting a free webinar on “Blockchain Technology in Agriculture” at Noon EST on October 3, 2018 featuring Roger Royse, an ag tech lawyer in California.  More information is here.
