All use cases

Blockchain & Retail Industry

A growing number of Retail businesses are looking at blockchain technology for what it is and what it will be. Despite the limited presence of blockchain in retail, experts believe in the variety of use cases that are likely to succeed.

Why Blockchain?

Blockchain technology makes it possible for both retailers and e-commerce operators to execute post-sale supply chain and distribution processes automatically with smart contract technology. By accepting digital currencies, merchants can also interact with consumers on a peer-to-peer basis.

Use cases

  • Supply Chain Management – Blockchain is able to capture a data trail that can trace a product from its source to retail shelves and all stops in between. For example, Walmart and IBM have partnered on a blockchain-based Food Traceability Initiative that can identify the origin of produce almost instantaneously; instead of taking nearly a week, that data can now be retrieved in just 2.2 seconds. This is critical in cases of foodborne illness outbreaks and safety recalls. It also enables retailers to demonstrate compliance with regulations aimed at eliminating slavery and human trafficking from supply chains and allows merchants to unequivocally assure customers that products are ethically and/or sustainably sourced.
  • Authenticity Verification – Counterfeiting and theft are ongoing problems for manufacturers and retailers, whether it’s knockoffs of high-end goods such as handbags, fragrances, and watches or criminals trying to sell stolen art or automobiles to legitimate dealers. Blockchain trails can help manufacturers detect product diversion and trademark infringement, and they also enable resellers to verify ownership.
