The digital association Bitkom organizes its professional work in working circles and committees. CHAINSTEP is represented in two of them: in the AK Blockchain as well as in the AK E-Logistics and Supply Chain. The latter had a meeting on September, 11th at the logistics hub Dortmund, which is partnering with the logistics hub in Hamburg, in which CHAINSTEP also belongs.

The work group has given itself the clear objective of discussing blockchain as an important and emerging basic technology. Frank Bolten explained the basic principles of blockchain technology to the participants at the event in the North Rhine-Westphalian metropolis. Afterwards the members of the working group learned about the “smart contract generator” during a guided tour through the institute.
