Blockchain technology has huge potential to decentralize trust in supply chains and
bring enormous benefits. To unlock this potential OriginTrail protocol was designed to
tackle the prime challenges limiting the exchange and integrity of data in product
supply chains. With supply chain data getting increasingly fragmented as well as the
poor scalability and cost effectiveness of current decentralized solutions, the need for
OriginTrail becomes evident. OriginTrail is a unique protocol enabling IT providers in
the supply chain industry quick implementation of blockchain supported data sharing
in multi-organizational environments.
It is a missing puzzle that helps build transparency beyond the “one step down, one
step up” principle, increase integrity of data and save money for stakeholders in
supply chains. The first version of OriginTrail is currently in use in the food industry
with the upcoming open source version being applicable to any product supply chain.
