In early 2019, the business standards company BSI partnered up exclusively with Trace Labs, the core developers of OriginTrail, to deliver blockchain-enabled solutions. With such solutions, the British Standards Institution (BSI) seeks to enhance its global assurance, certification, and supply chain services by ensuring the integrity of digital records. In collaboration with Trace Labs, BSI is now launching a series of blockchain-based solutions catering to both organizations and individuals aiming to build resilience in their supply chains, a need becoming even more apparent in light of the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Solutions described in the recently released BSI white paper – titled “Instruments of Trust: BSI’s Blockchain-Based Solutions” – enable a secure and trusted way of verifying the authenticity of claimed personal credentials as well as company and product certifications. BSI has also introduced the SCAN Trusted Factory Blockchain Program designed for US importers to ensure the authenticity of a factory’s certification and factory credentials.
False assertions are prevalent in society leaving people uncertain of whom and what to trust. Counterfeit products and false claims are far too commonplace and perpetually flood the market. Examples include counterfeit drugs/fentanyl-laced prescriptions, false or misleading food labels, and the range of credentials provided to others as part of our daily lives – passports, qualifications and so on. Challenges remain within legacy trust systems, as businesses and consumers demand an immutable source of truth and verification.
“In today’s global, interconnected economy, there is a growing trust deficit felt by businesses and consumers,” said, Dan Purtell, BSI Group Innovation Director
To help combat false claims, BSI partnered with Trace Labs in early 2019 and has since used technology based on the OriginTrail Decentralized Network (ODN) in three pilot projects. This allowed BSI to provide a suite of solutions that serve as instruments of trust for its clients, enhancing the resilience of its brands. Using DLT technology as a single source of truth, they aim to provide clients with the ability to demonstrate to their customers the authenticity of their claims, be it certifications, product authenticity, or traceability. BSI and Trace Labs are continuing to develop new solutions beyond the three pilot projects.
The aim of the partnership is to help clients:
- Comply with regulation and standards;
- Meet client expectations concerning products features and claims (safety, quality, and other attributes);
- Manage business risk and product quality and reduce the cost of non-conformity;
- Be able to effectively manage product recalls with near-real-time corrective action; and
- Extract more value out of data already generated in global supply chains.
As per the announcement made in January 2019, Howard Kerr, Chief Executive of BSI, stated: “In today’s increasingly interconnected world, transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain is vital. This strategic partnership aims to provide our clients with the ability to demonstrate the authenticity of their compliance through the digital records of the assessments and certifications they have achieved from BSI. Ultimately building trust and confidence as consumers and business partners can easily verify the provenance of the goods and/or services they are buying.”
The BSI has now launched a series of blockchain-based solutions developed together with Trace Labs and published a white paper detailing three applications designed to provide organizations and individuals with secure and trusted means of verifying the authenticity of claimed personal credentials as well as company and product certifications.
Jurij Skornik, General Manager of Trace Labs, said: “We have been working closely with our partners at BSI for the past year to enhance their world-class assurance services with our state-of-the-art trust-enhancing technology. The results are three applications that help individuals and companies demonstrate and verify the authenticity of issued credentials, the importance of which has been made indisputably clear in the COVID-19 world. We are looking forward to continuing our cooperation with BSI and developing new solutions that infuse trust into businesses around the world.”
One of the introduced solutions is the Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN) Trusted Factory Blockchain Program designed for US importers to ensure the authenticity of a factory’s certification and factory credentials. SCAN is an association of importers that was formed to eliminate foreign factory audit fatigue associated with supply chain security importing criteria within the US Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program (CTPAT). SCAN importing members have combined annual sales of USD 1.25 trillion and source from factories around the world. More than 50 percent of these factories are shared by multiple SCAN members, which, prior to SCAN, would have resulted in the facilities having regular audits by independent importers. Today, SCAN has more than 18,000 factories in the SCAN database and the program’s popularity has grown internationally, with several hundred audits conducted monthly. The solution secures permissioned audit data and factory credentials on the ODN, based on the public Ethereum blockchain, and makes them accessible to SCAN members and interested government agencies such as CTPAT for viewing. The implementation utilizes the global W3C Verifiable Credentials data model to ensure interoperability and compatibility with novel frameworks such as the Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) framework.
Speaking about the BSI white paper, Ken McElroy, Mgr. Global Trade Risk Home Depot noted: “As a Tier III CTPAT business partner The Home Depot continually strives for improvements in its supply chain security platform. Membership in SCAN has delivered both an effective platform as well as cost savings through the use of shared audits. Adding a secured blockchain element over the top of the SCAN audit only increases the security and integrity of these audits! With the intention of this level of integrity and security leading to a “trusted factory” program with the various regulatory agencies further costs should be driven out of the supply chain.”

GoMining Reveals Cutting-Edge North NFT Collection
Leveraging its vast experience since 2017, GoMining is leading the way in bitcoin mining, providing users with an effortless and user-friendly service. Now the company has introduced the so-called North Collection.
The company’s NFT collections provide daily bitcoin rewards to holders, with their substantial fleet of real equipment installed across the globe. Continuing their successful streak after the highly acclaimed East NFT Collection, this latest release marks the next installment in a series of crypto art devoted to various regions. GoMining’s fresh North NFT Collection draws inspiration from three key references: the critical role of low temperatures in mining device operations, the restraint and resilience found in northern regions, and the empowering force driving their endeavors. These references served as the foundation for the collection’s captivating images, reflecting the core principles behind GoMining’s innovative approach to bitcoin mining.
GoMining’s new NFT series is issued on the Binance Smart Chain, utilizing the BEP-20 standard for seamless integration and accessibility. With an impressive energy efficiency rating of 35 W/TH, these NFTs ensure the quickest payback period for holders. Moreover, the NFTs offer a diverse range of computing power options, spanning from 1 to 128 TH/s, accommodating various mining requirements and preferences.
In just over two years, GoMining has achieved remarkable growth. The platform has distributed more than 2,000 BTC to holders, issued 20,000 NFTs, and elevated its overall hash power from 100,000 TH/s to an astounding 2,359,877 TH/s. This exponential progress showcases the project’s resounding success and commitment to innovation in the cryptocurrency and NFT space.
As per GoMining’s CEO Mark Zalan, the company is doing everything to offer a broad variety of options to its holders, proving its sustainability and transparent approach. “We’ve been in operation for over two years providing consistent rewards for our holders daily. All of our efforts are aimed at showing tangible infrastructure behind the product – in this case real equipment with data centers in different regions like Norway.”
GoMining remains dedicated to introducing updated versions of its NFTs, originally crafted to provide easier access to bitcoin mining. All NFT collections, such as the renowned collaboration with MMA star Khabib Nurmagomedov, combine visually stunning designs with real equipment-generated computing power, offering continuous mining rewards to their owners.
The new North collection is available here.
New study reveals the cryptocoins that the US wants to sell the most
A new study has revealed the cryptocoins Americans want to sell the most, with Bitcoin taking the top spot.
The research was conducted by crypto gambling experts at cryptogambling.tv, who analyzed Google Trends data to establish the cryptocurrencies the US wants to sell the most out of the 24 largest cryptocurrencies by market cap, giving an average weekly search volume for the interest in selling each cryptocoin.
The study revealed that Bitcoin has the highest number of searches from Americans looking to sell this cryptocurrency. Searches to ‘sell bitcoin’ were the highest at the end of July in the United States and worldwide.
Many factors might sway someone to sell their Bitcoin, with the main reason being the current financial and economic strain many countries in the world are facing, prompting people to tap out and cut their losses. Last year the price of the cryptocoin dropped below $16,000, which highlights its downfall tremendously, and with Bitcoin’s value being based purely on speculation, it can be challenging for those who don’t know whether or not to stick with it.
Ethereum is the second cryptocoin Americans want to sell the most, with searches for ‘sell Ethereum’ being the highest in September worldwide. Although the currency is known for owning around 20% of the global crypto market, those wanting to invest tend to agree that it is one of the safest long-term coins. The current price of Ethereum is $1,458, and with the cryptocoin shifting its process from PoW to PoS, it’s predicted its supply may reduce.
XRP is the third cryptocoin Americans want to sell the most, as it is predicted that its price will be near $0.198 by the end of this year. XRP runs by RippleNet and is a low-cost coin which is excellent for those who want to begin investing; however, due to the current lawsuit proceedings with the SEC, there is a significant decrease in interest for the currency, which has undoubtedly urged investors to act fast and sell.
The fourth cryptocoin Americans want to sell the most is Dogecoin, which, although it has remained one of the top cryptocurrencies in the industry, is still not a solid investment for many investors. The coin rose over 15,000% over 2021, and for a cryptocoin which was created as a joke when it first began, it has truly exceeded expectations. Many avoid investing in Dogecoin due to its price volatility, no supply limit, and not being as widely accepted as other competing coins; these are reasons why many also want to sell.
Shiba Inu is the fifth cryptocoin that Americans are looking to sell, and while the coin is top-rated, it is advised that those looking to invest should not use it as a long-term investment. The coin is down almost 92% since 2021, but many investors hope it will still go up in time as it is currently at over 589 trillion.
An expert at cryptogambling.tv commented: “The cryptocurrency market is forever fluctuating, and with the increase in economic stress worldwide, it can be an uncertain and nerve-racking time for those hoping to make sound investments in the crypto world.
“This study offers an interesting insight into which cryptocoins Americans currently want to sell, with Bitcoin being the most popular to sell.”
