A UK port operator that handles 25 percent of cargo shipments in the country wants to integrate blockchain in its supply chain.

UK’s leading port operator, Associated British Ports (ABP), has signed an agreement with digital logistics enabler Marine Transport International to develop blockchainu use for port logistics, Dry Bulk magazine reports Wednesday, September 19.

Under the agreement with Marine Transport International, ABPwhich operates in 21 ports and carries out 25 percent of the cargo shipments in Great Britainwill take part in pilot shipments using blockchain technology.

According to Dry Bulk, each party in ABP’s supply chain lacks connection with others, as port operators, carriers, and shippers use different systems. As a blockchain solution for port logistics could reduce time spent on the manual review of scattered data, Jody Cleworth, founder and CEO of Marine Transport International, noted:

“With blockchain, we can connect all those systems to ensure data is accurately and quickly shared, helping speed-up and simplify the flow of trade in and out of the UK.

Earlier in June, Denmark revealed its plans to implement blockchain technology to register ships in local ship registers. A subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports has also zahájila its own domestic blockchain solution for logistics.

V květnu, Fred Smith, CEO for global delivery service FedEx, commented on the benefits of blockchain for supply chains, calling the technologythe next frontier that’s going to completely changethe whole industry.

U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo has said that crypto needs a “do no harm” approach from regulators to flourish.

U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo has said that crypto needs a “do no harmapproach from regulators to flourish, in an interview at the annual Singapore Summit today, Friday 14.

Chairman Giancarlo said he took the precedent from the early days of the Internet, which he argued was able to develop and mature because of the government’s minimal interventions:

“I’m advocating the same approach to cryptocurrencies and all things having to do with this new digital revolution of markets, and of currencies, and of asset classes.

Nonetheless, he distinguished between the CFTC’s short-term approach to tackling illicit activity on the crypto markets, and the agency’s longer-termand potentially critically impactfuldecisions on policy making for the nascent industry:

When it comes to fraud and manipulation, we need to be strong. When it comes to policy making, I think we need to be slow and deliberate and well informed.

The Chairman also rebutted accusations that the U.S. regulatory context for crypto has been slow to take clear shape, noting that the CFTC had presided over the “very firstregulated offerings of Bitcoin (BTC) futures, which launched on December 2017 on the stalwart American CME and CBOE exchanges.

The question of how cryptocurrencies should be defined and which agencies are responsible for their regulation have long been debated by U.S. regulators. A U.S. House hearing earlier this summer encapsulated the unique challenge posed by crypto, with speakers emphasizing that digital assets complicate the hard and fast distinctions of existing regulatory frameworks.

This year two federal judges have ruled on major cases that confirmed the applicability of federal commodity regulations to Bitcoin under the CFTC’s oversight, as well asjust this weekthe applicability of U.S. securities laws for prosecuting crypto fraud allegations.
