Making food safety its first priority, retail giant Walmart has wasted no time in asking its suppliers of leafy greens to start using blockchain in order to ensure “real-time, end-to-end traceability from farm to table” and to “speed up identifying, researching and reacting to food safety situations.” In a statement published on Monday on the company’s website, the retail giant asked its suppliers of leafy green produce to integrate a blockchain-based tracking system built in collaboration with IBM by September 2019. 2018 has seen a huge outbreak of E. coli in romaine lettuce and a number of other products and this has prompted Walmart to waste no time and spring to action. The statement reads: “It’s crucial to respond quickly and accurately to food safety issues like these. But with the traditional paper-based method of capturing information that exists at many farms, packing houses and warehouses, tracking down important data from multiple sources is extremely time-consuming.” Blockchain changes everything Frank Yiannas, VP of Food Safety at Walmart explains: “The food system is absolutely too large for any single entity to [track]. But blockchain changes everything. We’ve been working with IBM to digitize that, so the information is captured on the farm with a handheld system. It’s [also] captured at the packing house at the supplier.” According to the report, Walmart plans to use the power of blockchain to speed up identifying, researching and reacting to food safety situations. Reacting to this news, Robert Tauxe, director of CDC’s Division of Foodborne, Waterborne and Environmental Diseases said, “Enhanced ability to trace a contaminated food back to its source will help government agencies and companies to identify the source of a foodborne disease outbreak, coordinate more effective recalls of foods thought to be contaminated and learn where past problems began.” “We think these steps will strengthen future prevention efforts and better protect the public’s health from the threat of foodborne illness,” he added. “When it comes to safety, this is not a competitive issue. We all win or lose together,” concludes Yiannas.

A recent study from Chainalysis shows that the BTC market has become more stable and less susceptible to hype over the summer.
A new data report says that companies and long-term investors do not hold much bitcoin but it is the active individual users who hold an increasing amount of bitcoins in their wallets. As of August 31, as per the report, the number of bitcoins held in individual wallets whose transactional level was a mid-range one was found to be 4.8 million or 32 percent approximately. It has increased by 1 million from the end of 2017, where 3.8 million or 26 percent of bitcoin was found in the wallets of individuals. However, the numbers in July were slightly higher than that of August, when 4.95 million or 33 percent of all coins in circulation was held in personal wallets. Bitcoin is still held as an inactive investment, be it institutions or individuals with 6.3 billion held in accounts showing no activity for the past one year. During this summer, there has been a stability in monetary aggregates. To be specific, the amount of bitcoin held for speculation remained steady at 22% from May to August, and the amount of bitcoin held for investment during the summer was stable at an average of 30%. “Neither long-term investors nor new speculators have changed their positions much this summer. This suggests that the market will make a major move, for better or worse, only in response to a fundamental change. For example, restrictive regulation, new use cases, or technology improvements —such as the lightning network— could act as catalysts of change. Regardless, the continued presence of both long-term investors and new speculators suggests that bitcoin has maintained the growth in its user base from year-end 2017. As such, the first challenge of adoption —getting cryptocurrency into people’s hands— has been overcome, but we are now waiting to see what the next stage of adoption looks like,” said the report by Chainalysis.
