TraceHarvest uses a permissioned blockchain ledger (also known as an enterprise blockchain) to track the status of agricultural products. It does not use cryptocurrency or any open public networks.

TraceHarvest also uses Solidity smart contracts – a unique feature of the Ethereum blockchain protocol – in order to program and automate business activities and rules into the TraceHarvest network.

Importantly, TraceHarvest then runs on the BlockApps STRATO blockchain platform, which makes it truly enterprise-grade and production-ready. Visit blockapps.net/faq for more information, starting with blockchain 101.
