US lawmakers to hear case for blockchain supply chain

Lawmakers in the U.S. Congress are set to hold a hearing on blockchain tech’s use in global supply chains next week.

Two subcommittees of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology – for Research and Technology, and Oversight – will meet on May 8, a newly published notice reveals. The hearing is entitled “Leveraging Blockchain Technology to Improve Supply Chain Management and Combat Counterfeit Goods.”

Next week’s hearing is the first to hone in on a specific use case – supply chain management – that has garnered interest from a number of major corporates around the world.
