Excerpt from Forbes article about Viant
To give an example of how this looks in the $11 billion tuna industry, during a recent two-week voyage, a vessel, Sea Beluga, that belongs to a commercial fishing outfit, Sea Quest Fiji, caught a Thunnus albacares, better known as a yellowfin tuna, off the coast of Fiji. Fijian supply chain company TraSeable used the Viant platform to log the data on the public ethereum blockchain. After the giant fish was partially cleaned, the blockchain shows it weighed 56.87 pounds. Everything from the vessel’s call number to its permit number are included in the record. After the fish was unloaded at the port of Suva, Fiji, on October 31, it was processed and given FDA number 13036613000. Finally, a grader named William gave the fish a B grade and sent it to the port of Los Angeles, from where it was sent via FedEx to Forbes’ offices in Jersey City, New Jersey.
