LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
Get fluent in blockchain, architect a better future
These days mirror the late 1990s when the Internet evolved to widespread use: The topic bedeviled many. But others—in banking and entertainment, for example—who quickly learned the new lingo and jumped at the chance to explore the potential of the Web benefitted greatly.
Today’s tantalizing topic: blockchain.
Over the last several months, Smart Manufacturing magazine interviewed 20 people around the world who know a thing or two about blockchain and how it is likely to impact manufacturing.
The resulting special report, “In blockchain we trust,” takes pains to make manufacturers fluent in blockchain—so you can get in on the ground floor of what is sure to be a sea change in the way they interact with suppliers, for starters.
