Chainyard joins the Blockchain in Transport Alliance

Chainyard, North Carolina’s largest blockchain specialist, announces its alliance with Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA). Joining BiTA expands the ability to continue to be at the forefront of blockchain technology, the company said, adding that it is continuing to invest in several areas including supply chain, manufacturing and transportation.

“Working within the Alliance gives us opportunities to partner with other members to co-create value that will directly enhance the transportation industry through technology innovation and new business models,” said Isaac Kunkel, Chainyard’s consulting services lead. “Blockchain will change the way industries operate.  After working on building solutions in this space for the past three years, we’ve learned what it takes to navigate this fast-moving area. We’re excited to share what we’ve learned with the broader BiTA community.”

Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that provides consensus, provenance, finality and immutability of business transactions and digital assets. These characteristics enable participants in a blockchain ecosystem to benefit from increased trust, greater transparency and reduced friction.

“Transportation is an area where we see the opportunity for blockchain technology to deliver tremendous benefits,” said Sai Nidamarty, CEO of IT People. “Participation in BiTA enables us to continue our blockchain journey, learn from the community and use our extensive experience, thought leadership and delivery capability to help the industry achieve genuine business results.”

“We are extremely excited to join BiTA and join this fast-growing alliance” said Mohan Venkatamaran, CTO of Chainyard. “With our expertise in supply chain and focus on manufacturing and transportation, joining BiTA complements our ongoing investment, experimentation and research in the application of blockchain, IoT and analytics to these areas.  Blockchain is a new way to think about B2B collaboration. Contributing to and understanding the standards being developed is paramount to the success of our customers.  Transportation is a major component in the supply chain value chain across many industries. Leveraging blockchain to increase trust, provide transparency and automate supporting transactions through Smart Contracts is essential.”
