China to track chicken on blockchain platform

The Chinese online-only insurer ZhongAn announced in June the development of a blockchain platform for the chicken supply chain. The platform logs all transactions relating to each chicken permanently on a decentralised ledger. Each chicken gets a device that records its birth, the farms it was reared in, and the factories and logistic suppliers it passed through post-slaughter. As a result, every individual chicken will have an identity and each of its steps in the supply chain will be traceable.  

ZhongAn is collaborating with Wopu, an Internet of Things company that provides digital devices and mobile applications.
