Blockchain Solutions: Practical B2B Supply Chain Applications | FTI Consulting

There has been a significant amount of hype around cryptocurrencies and blockchain in the last five years, with business to business (B2B) blockchain applications slowly starting to gain traction in leading-edge organizations.
