Use case: The Benefits Of Blockchain & Aventus Network For Supply Chain Management
Right after Financial services, Supply chain management is the most discussed application of Blockchain technology.
Subjects such as trust between multiple parties, automated actions and payments, proving identity, a shared and open database, and a connected network, are key areas where Blockchain technology stands as the sole industry leader.
Forbes notes that the process of moving the global beef supply chain to a shared, distributed ledger could potentially save billions of dollars in the U.S. With blockchain technology, you don’t have to trust that the data is accurate.
Companies with Supply Chain Management needs that are first to act will find themselves at a distinct advantage in the race to control oversight, costs, and logistical efficiencies at scale.
That’s why Current Walmart is to hire cryptocurrency and digital currency product lead, Dole Plans to Use Blockchain Food Tracing in All Divisions by 2025, and why IBM is working on blockchain solutions for food supply chain management.
Announcing the Winner & Best 2 Runners Up from the $100 Meme Competition
For the past month or so, we have been running a $100 meme competition in which we received around 70 incredibly creative entries.
It has been a hard task to whittle them down to just one winner, the team has judged every entity and chosen THREE WINNERS.
So, without further ado…
The first winner of the $50 prize is @ownashyi!
In second place, winning the $30 prize, is hell_bat @6tnys.
And finally, in third place, we have apitmasapit @miomerahapit, taking home the $20 prize.
All prizes are paid in $USDT.
To claim your prizes, reach out to Telegram admin Idara who will take your name and wallet address to organise the token transfer.
We will announce a new competition in the near future, where the winners will be chosen by the community, using the Aventus Governance Protocol and announced first by email.

A Technical Update on AvN NFT Functionality

The work centred around stress testing, key management, payment integration and testing.
Stress testing: with respect to high volume transactions and a wide array of attack scenarios.
Key management: The back-end automated creation of AvN keys for successful NFT bidders.
Payment integration and testing: FIAT functionality and new request from the current client, EOS.
