Transparency that engenders trust

There is no doubt that blockchain is about bringing trust to transactions. For almost any supply chain – be it food, medical records, precious gems and minerals, real estate or credit default swaps, to name a few – success depends on the promise of transparency and auditability for all participants. In this sense, we can view financial products as supply chains of primary and secondary markets – a supply chain of cash in one direction and of shares, CDs or derivatives in the other.
