We are starting to see the values of using blockchain technology in RFA. Currently, the majority of blockchain solutions are used within what we call the ‘downstream supply-chain’ i.e. via the retailer or brand, direct to the consumer. This could be a company that uses a distributed and secure system based upon blockchain to create and verify a product’s identity from concept to consumer. The technology can guarantee a product’s authenticity using different technologies (Rain RFiD, NFC, BTLE, PJM). It can also be used to increase transparency across the supply chain.
