Taking another dimension, far back in October 2018, retail king Overstock declared its move into blockchain-based wine futures. Overstock purportedly also planned to combat wine scam, although they are taking another approach to achieve this. They are creating a digital trading platform for wine futures. This would purportedly result in a protected supply chain that authenticates wine industry products.

Patrick M. Byrne, Overstock founder and CEO stated on the company’s idea, he declared:

“Like any economy, the wine industry has difficulty scaling its middlemen-heavy systems in parallel with the growing demands of an increasing global market. VinX’s steps in tokenizing wine futures while allowing wine enthusiasts to know without a doubt that the bottles they purchase are filled with authentic wines will position the entire industry as a model of a new global economy that replaces old boys’ networks with frictionless trust through technology.”

Choosing another approach, blockchain startup VinX is also creating a supply chain platform for trading wine, the platform will permit the procurement of antiquated wine by specialists and collectors still in its barrel, a year or two before it’s been bottled and released on the market.

Still on the trend of securing and authenticating wine, Big Four professional services firm EY has created a blockchain platform for a firm that will help consumers verify wines’ quality, source and authenticity. As gather from their publication, the platform will be used to trade wines straight from wineries to hotels, restaurants, cafes and customers. Meanwhile the platform is supported by Asian wine cellar, The House of Roosevelt.
