Meme of the Week
This Week in Mass Adoption
Another week has gone by and brought us many tales of imminent mass adoption. Here we relate these tales; US Federal Reserve: Now Hiring, Blockchain Vs. Child Labour, Coca-Cola and the Blockchain Factory(ies), The EU: The Central Bank Strikes Back, and more. Read on…
The US Federal Reserve posted an open position this week for Payment Manager. The duties were to include the researching of cryptocurrencies, including Stablecoins, as payments for the retail industry. This may be in response to China’s recent embracing of Blockchain tech. Hopefully, we will see more of these types of government jobs being created soon.
Volvo is joining automakers Ford and Volkswagen plus electronics giant, LG, in the fight against child labour used to mine cobalt. The pilot program, run by the Responsible Sourcing Blockchain Network (RSBN), recently wrapped up and was successful in the tracking of over 1 ton of cobalt from the Congo using IBM Blockchain technology. This is just another example of the good that can be done with Blockchain tech. We will see a lot more of this in the future!
After a successful pilot program, Coke One North America (CONA), the IT firm that runs the supply chain for Coca-Cola, is expanding to include almost 70 more shipping plants in the program. The program is using the SAP Blockchain to try to streamline the operation which does $21 billion annually.
In response to the possibility of Facebook’s LibraCoin to topple financial markets, the EU has drafted a document stating the European Central Bank should look into creating a public Cryptocurrency of their own. This along with a recommendation for a universal Cryptocurrency framework could be the beginning of new regulations for Hodlers in EU countries. It also mentions potentially banning projects they judge to be high-risk.
According to Coindesk, Webjet, a digital travel firm, has launched a hotel booking platform on the Blockchain. They used Microsoft’s BAAS sandbox, Azure to build their app called Rezchain. Rezchain will constantly check all data for the booking industry to prevent overcharges, overbooking/double-booking issues, and other problems that arise.
