Chainstack, a multi-cloud and multi-protocol Platform as a Service that empowers businesses to rapidly build, deploy and manage decentralized networks and services, has joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA), an organization dedicated to determining best practices and standards relating to blockchain in the transportation/logistics/supply chain marketplace.
Blockchain helps companies digitally identify and track transactions, contracts and shipments as part of a distributed ledger system, making supply chain operations more transparent and reliable. This can help organizations improve customer experiences and create new revenue streams by improving numerous processes.
“Blockchain can transform the supply chain by improving transparency and innovation,” said Chris Burruss, President of BiTA. “We are pleased that Chainstack has joined the Alliance, and I believe its technology expertise will help BiTA develop and deploy blockchain standards.” Burruss also stated, “Blockchain technology has the potential to improve performance for every company within the industry, and more importantly improve the experience those companies provide their customers. Alliance members are working together towards this important goal.”
Chainstack joined BiTA in part to connect with companies deploying blockchain use cases in test or production. “The transport and supply chain management industries are being enhanced by blockchain-based solutions. The prospect of optimizing processes and cost is huge, and to realize the full potential of blockchain, industry players will need a platform like Chainstack that provides ease of use in deployment and flexibility in cloud and protocol choice,” stated Chainstack CEO Laurent Dedenis.
Chainstack, an Acronis spin-out, is headquartered in Singapore and was incorporated in early 2017. It is headed by Eugene Aseev and Laurent Dedenis, industry veterans with global experience in building large-scale software platforms. Chainstack’s user-friendly interface and rich set of APIs helps businesses to implement enterprise-grade decentralized networks and quickly progress from proof of concept to production on their use cases.
