b_verify: Disrupting and Redefining the Global Supply Chain

Despite their scope and impact, SMEs have a harder time getting financing than larger established firms. According to the World Bank, it is estimated that their global financing shortfall is around $2.6 trillion.
“The potential benefits are vast and global in scale,” said Gerry Tsoukalas, Wharton professor of operations, information and decisions, who was part of the team [from MIT, Wharton and Boston College]. Small and medium-size enterprises, he said, represent the backbone of many economies in the world, and they account for more than half of the jobs as well as a third of global GDP.
This leads to the creation of a new blockchain-based system that has the potential to disrupt the global supply chain. Called ‘b_verify,’ the system is designed to help small and medium-size enterprises — especially those in developing nations — get financing from lenders at potentially better terms while mitigating warehouse deposit fraud.
