Ep.3 – Blockchain in the London Market
An opportunity is being missed to use distributed ledger technology to tackle some of the largest environmental challenges in the world, according to a new PwC blockchain report, published Monday. Only three percent of investment in the technology in the second quarter of went towards environmentally beneficial projects, the global consultancy said.
PwC identified 65 emerging and existing uses cases of the technology that could disrupt how the world manages environmental resources. These range from decentralisng management of natural resources such as energy and water, to creating cleaner and more transparent supply chains. However, out of the projects less than one percent were in the utilities and energy sectors; areas in which there is considerable scope for environmental improvement. But there is an opportunity for fresh ideas to harness this nascent technology to help deliver big gains for our environment.
The study highlights London-based start-up Provenance, which in piloted a public blockchain that tracked the fishing of tuna in Indonesia to its consumption by UK customers. In the Guardian uncovered supply chains that ran into UK supermarkets that originated from slave labour in Asia.
Provenance designed an application utilising blockchain technology that works through a simple smartphone to link identity, material attributes location, audit information and certifications with a batch ID or specific item.
Once this origin link is set up with the actual people who farm the fish it is then connected into existing supply chain systems. Yet as the report points out this type of project only represents a small number of the blockchain projects that are being funded. Join Our Newsletter Want more on technology leadership?

Blockchain, AI offer big savings in transportation and logistics, PwC survey finds
Professional services company PwC has published a new report on worldwide blockchain adoption, which finds that 84 percent of organisations are experimenting with the technology — as reported separately by Internet of Business. But how should business and technology leaders manage new blockchain programmes to ensure the best chance of success? And how can organisations build cross-industry collaboration? First, decision-makers should look at creating blockchains as platforms for industry-wide collaboration, says PwC. However, building a blockchain becomes more complex when third parties participate, warns the report.
How PwC Germany Combats Money Laundering in Crypto Space with Neo4j
Global consultancy PwC and the Northern Irish Arc-Net will gather their knowledge to help the food industry fight fraud. At the heart of their joint efforts is the use of blockchain, an innovative technology that has emerged from financial services. The blockchain concept was originally developed as an efficient and secure way to manage and register transactions made with cryptocurrencies for example, Bitcoin. Until now, it has mostly been of interest to individuals and financial institutions. However, with its distributed-ledger technology DLT and smart contracts, blockchain has great potential to benefit all companies across the supply chain — not just banks. One area where the innovative financial technology was perhaps thought of as an unlikely fit at best is the food industry.

Inside KPMG, Deloitte, EY and PwC’s Plans for Blockchain and Crypto
According to PwC , blockchain technology has yet to have an appreciable economic impact in China. Cupids Farm Milk , produced by Bright Food, has implemented a system powered by the VeChainThor blockchain to allow consumers to track the product from farm-to-table. With this system, key data is measured via IoT internet of things -enabled sensors and certified by DNV GL, which tracks everything from bovine health to additives placed in the milk to the temperature it was stored at enroute to the customer. Another example featured in the China Blockchain Report is how the used car sector is embracing the technology. Via a network of sensors placed within the vehicle, data is securely recorded and logged on a distributed ledger, which would allow a third party — like an appraiser — to gauge its real value. But these are just two examples of the countless companies that have developed real-world, blockchain-based applications across a variety of industry verticals.

While blockchain is most known as the underlying infrastructure supporting cryptocurrencies , PwC experts reviewed other key advantages of the distributed ledger technology DLT.

Who would benefit the most from blockchain? According to PwC analysts, Asia stands to reap the most economic benefits from blockchain technology over other continents.
The two firms will join forces to create a strong team of specialists and provide one-stop, innovative blockchain solutions. PwC China signed a join business relationship with BitSE — a Shanghai-based blockchain start-up, just like they signed a strategic partnership with Blockstream.
