Blockchain for Recordkeeping: Understanding Contextual and Technical Considerations through an Archival Science Lens

This research project is drawing on a previous study into blockchain technology. We plan to take our findings into the real world to investigate the potential for the blockchain network to improve supply chain management systems. The research will involve identifying areas where blockchain technology can enhance supply chain management processes.We believe that blockchain processes can enhance information security, speed of transactions and the cost of those transactions. The research will help NeuSwyft, the industry partner, to realize those advantages for their own business.
