Coke Bottlers Turn To Blockchain

Coke One North America, the technology firm that manages the IT operations for Coca Cola bottlers, is using a blockchain solution from German software firm SAP to improve its supply chain process.

Andrei Semenov, senior manager at Coke One North America, told Business Insider "There are a number of transactions that are cross-companies and multiparty that are inefficient. They go through intermediaries; they are very slow. And we felt that we could improve this and save some money,"

The blockchain-based solution will allow bottlers to see real-time inventory of other franchises and will have the ability to purchase bottles from other franchises to fulfill an order in the event of a shortage. CONA says that franchisers will be paid much faster. 

CONA is able to view all transactions on the online ledger, including what franchise orders and specific shipments. Using the technology, CONA is hoping to reduce the order-reconciliation process from 50 days down to just a few days, leading to cost savings and faster cash flow between the franchises. The pilot program initially started with just two bottlers — Coca-Cola United and C.C. Clark — and is now being scaled across 70 franchises. 

Binance Expands CipherTrace Partnership

CipherTrace, a leading provider of cryptocurrency intelligence and blockchain security, announced support for Binance Chain and its community that facilitates the transfer and trading of blockchain assets and BNB. Binance Chain primarily functions as the foundation layer of Binance’s new decentralized exchange.

CipherTrace support for BNB and the larger Binance Chain ecosystem follows on the heels of a recent expansion of CipherTrace services where the company added 700 crypto assets, including Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH) and tether (USDT) to its traceable list. 

CipherTrace technology will track on-chain funds and problematic user wallet addresses. The integration comes in response to Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations for having exchanges implement the travel rule.

Binance chief compliance officer Samuel Lim stated “Our users can soon expect more digital token/asset support across our fast-growing ecosystem and lines of businesses. While we constantly strengthen our compliance and security controls to align with global regulatory standards, we stay true to our roots of being user-centric. This partnership with CipherTrace would ultimately encourage greater community involvement, developer participation and public interest in Binance Chain and pave the way for larger mainstream adoption.”

Binance also announced that its implementation of the Threshold Signature Scheme Library, a technology aimed to allow crypto startups to more securely manage private keys is now open source. The Threshold Signature Scheme Library will enable wallet providers and custodians to avoid single points of failure in private keys with distributed key management.

Stellar Foundation Burns 55 Billion XLM

The Stellar Development Foundation has burned 55 billion of its XLM tokens, more than half the cryptocurrency’s supply. CEO Denelle Dixon made the announcement from the stage of the Stellar conference this Monday.
