Webinar 16 January: self sovereign digital farmer identities 02/12/2019

On the 16th of January 5PM CET the second Blockchain for Agri-food webinar will take place where we talk with Puvan J Selvanathan from Bluenumber and Marieke de Ruyter de Wildt from The New Fork on how blockchain can help farmers build up a digital self-sovereign identity. 

In our last joint blog post, we examined how blockchain allows farmers to build up a digital ID. Bluenumber offers a ‘user centric’ digital identity solution for smallholder farmers, but without the use of blockchain.

So, why and when is blockchain technology actually useful?

During the webinar, we will answer this question together with Bluenumber’s identity expert Puvan J Selvanathan, blockchain expert Marieke de Ruyter de Wildt from The Fork.
