Utilizing blockchain technology to tackle the issues of transparency, efficiency, and product visibility in legacy systems, SUKU aims to open new markets, improve operations, and reduce the cost of running supply chains. Since SUKU is a blockchain-based network, it depends on nodes to validate transactions and complete other tasks essential to maintaining the ecosystem, which can be costly for customers from a resource and time standpoint.

Piscini stated “Blockdaemon is a critical partner for our network, as this integration provides the key elements needed to onboard customers that may not have prior blockchain experience in a quicker, more efficient way, as well as helps to fully decentralize the SUKU platform. This will be especially key in integrating small and medium sized businesses into our supply chain network who often have limited access to enterprise technology in general, but especially advanced technology such as blockchain.” This news comes on the heels of the announcement that leading finance and technology executives including Chairman of the CoinDesk Advisory Board, Michael J.
