Overview:What if I told you that the process of deploying a blockchain solution should be relatively fast like in minutes to hours, & easy & not demand a massive investment? Based on deployment-ready solutions available now, significant benefits, the least of which are transparency & traceability can be realised early on & can be easily repeated & scaled along your supply chain. If the solution you're considering cannot perform these simple functions, it's time to reevaluate.
