BANKING ON BLOCKCHAIN: NASCENT JOINS BiTA
June 5, 2018 Charlotte, NC – Today, NASCENT proudly announced its membership in the newly formed Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA), an organization that aims “to create a forum for the development of blockchain standards and education for the freight industry.”
The move is a testament to NASCENT’s continued commitment to their role as a leading technology supplier to the freight industry. As the company plans its next wave of value-driven applications aimed at terminal automation and freight management, blockchain is anticipated to play a significant role in their architecture and on-going development.
“The promises of blockchain represent efficient solutions to the long-standing problems of trust and security in the digital world,” said Sam Longetti, NASCENT’s Software Director. “The highly-secure distributed ledger of blockchain enables the embedding of transactions, events, and contracts within digital code where they cannot be altered. Also, the ‘peer-to-peer’ contractual relationship reduces administrative overhead, making the resulting systems more efficient.”
BiTA was equally enthusiastic. "Nascent brings unique experience in technology development that will be invaluable to us as we work to build blockchain standards for the supply chain. I am pleased to welcome Nascent Technology to the BiTA family,” said Chris Burruss, President of BiTA.
