Using Blockchain technology to track hazardous materials

Mon, 04/08/2019 - 11:46

 There is increasing focus on the utilization of Blockchain technology to track hazardous materials and hazardous waste. Blockchain technology allows for a system where records can be stored, facts can be verified by anyone, and security is guaranteed. The software that would power such a system is called a “blockchain”.  Blockchains store information across a network of computers making them both decentralized and distributed. This means no central company or person owns the system and that everyone can use it and help run it. This makes it extremely difficult for any one person to take down the network or corrupt it.  http://hazmatmag.com/2019/04/using-block-chain-technology-to-track-hazardous-materials/
