A multinational technology firm recently partnered with a US seafood provider to improve the local supply chain effort. The new partnership aims to use blockchain for tracing and tracking wild scallops. The reports will also feature details regarding the catch and the processing method which will be recorded on the blockchain platform. The people who have access to the platform will be granted permission to access the information about the scallops from any point from the place of catch to the market place. Retailers, suppliers, and distributors are fully on board for the new initiative. One of the seafood providers has stated that they are planning to build an application that will allow the diners to scan the QR code on the menu to read about the history of the scallops before consumption. Blockchain Monitor reported that Utah County is expanding its voting pilot which was launched in summer. As a continuity of its work in blockchain, Utah County will allow its disabled voters to vote from their smartphone. This will allow them to cast their votes to ballots in November.
The county’s decision to move forward with new initiatives came after the National Cybersecurity Center’s report on votes.
