Welcome to the Traceability Blockchain

Introduction to Tritanium

The Traceability Blockchain API and the Foodledger API provide an easy to use interface to the Traceability Blockchain. The Traceability Blockchain is a secure public network based on the principles presented the Traceability Blockchain Whitepaper. The Traceability Blockchain uses technologies originally presented in the Satoshi blockchain (bitcoin) presented in 2009 to provide full product traceabilty.

Companies and software providers use the traceability blockchain to store data required to perform traceability using the blockchain and to trace products inputs and outputs in the case of a product recalls.

It is not necessary for users of the API to understand the architecture and internal structure of the Blockchain, although it is important that users understand and comply with GS1 standards and industry specific standards like the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI).

Background

Background

The traceability blockchain is a public blockchain that can be used by any company that is part of the supply chain and uses GS1 numbering standards. Unlike "permission" blockchains where users use cloud based systems to store data on a private network, the traceability blockchain adheres to the original blockchain principles.

Inportant blockchain principles include:

  • A peer-to-peer asset transfer system
  • With no central authority
  • Protected by cryptography
  • Managed through concensus
  • A distributed network

Why a Public Blockchain for Traceability

Why a Public Blockchain for Traceability

A public blockchain is the only way to create complete end-to-end traceabiliy. Permission blockchains operate on cloud services managed by the owner of the network. Most permission blockchains provides services beyond traceability. The traceability blockchain only stores and maintains the data necessary to provide product traceability. No personal or proprietary information is stored on the traceability blockchain. Data that is stored on permission blockchains can also participate in the traceability blockchain by using the Tritanium API or the Food Ledger API.
