The concept behind this project is to create a distinction between the Value Layer and the Data Layer, which allows for document notarization. These records are then stored on bitcoin’s blockchain, which means they are immutable and very unlikely to change. 2014 Digital Documents Advisors, Equator, Vodii, FPT Software Twitter (75.6k), Facebook (5,750), LinkedIn (2,300) March 9, 2019 4.00 Ambrosus Ambrosus is an Ethereum-based project that also focuses its resources on the supply chain. With its proprietary IoT devices, Ambrosus aims to create a supply chain with integrity. The beauty behind Ambrosus is that it has use cases with any industry that relies on logistics and supply chain. Potential errors and problems exist within the current system, which is why Ambrosus has created a device which eliminates some of the supply chain complexity and issues that lead to millions of dollars lost. 2017 Nestle, Trek Therapeutics, BioFirm AG, Crypto Valley Association, Cantone Group Twitter (20.7k), Facebook (4,400), LinkedIn (2,100) April 29, 2019 4.00 VeChain Another supply chain IoT Blockchain project is VeChain. This project makes use of smart contracts to track company inventory, tokenizing product as it moves throughout the supply chain process. RFID labels are placed on shipments, which then reveal the history of a product in its entirety. VeChain users can view this history any time they want as the shipment goes through the process. 2015 China Unicom, Bright Food, LogSafer, BYD, BIOS Middle East, NTT Docomo, ENN Energy Holdings Facebook (38)
