What is blockchain technology?

Blockchain technology is decentralized database  through which information can be recorded. It is traditionally used to record crypto currency transactions, but can be programmed to record data related to supply chains. In simpler terms: when some one requests information blockchain can verify that information through nodes or computers desired to process and store data, once verified the information is combined with other information to create a new block of data on the ledger or chain. Once added to the existing blockchain, the information is permanent and unalterable.

How does blockchain technology work when applied to supply chain analysis?

Technology like blockchain can help us tackle supply chain related issues by tracking where materials and goods come from, learn about how resources are extracted, how goods are made and who they were produced by.
