Blockchain: could it create a lot of new jobs worldwide?

A report published by the World Economic Forum (WEF) highlighted the crucial role of the technologies of the fourth industrial revolution. New technologies such as blockchain could help stimulate growth by implementing “nature-positive” solutions after the outbreak of the corona virus. Generate US dollars in business opportunities. Inger Andersen, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Director of the UN Environment Program, commented on the topic:

“As we enter a historic decade where we are trying to stop and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 and address climate change, the economy has a vital role in environmental responsibility for our planet. They have the technology, the innovation and funding to make the changes we need to invest more in nature’s infrastructure and solutions. “

 

Blockchain and the grocery supply chain

Blockchain technology could save $ 365 billion in savings by reducing food waste in the food supply chain. Pilot programs have already been launched in Benin, Ghana, India and Rwanda. The results suggest that relatively inexpensive storage techniques and handling practices can reduce post-harvest food loss by more than 60 percent. They can also increase smallholder farmers’ incomes by more than 30 percent, the report said. An example that the WEF gives in the study is the IBM Food Trust. This project has already been implemented with partners such as Walmart, Tyson Foods, Nestle and other supply chains based on blockchain
