New portable version of the tanglescanner available

There is a new prototype version of the tanglescanner available.

It can be operated autonomously – no heavy laptop or 110V/220V power line necessary.

It can be powered by a powerbank and connect via wifi to a mobile phone hotspot.

Scanned barcodes will be visible on the tangle (IOTA blockchain) within seconds.

We put a LCD display on top of it so the scanned barcodes will be shown on it.

Here you can see some first impressions:

The handheld classic barcode scanner (could be a cash-register one etc.) is connected via USB to the tanglescanner.

Scan barcodes into the blockchain – IOTA tangle – Use cases

tanglescanner.com

Below are some use cases to show why it is making sense to combine barcodes with a immutable blockchain / IOTA tangle:

Supply Chain
Blockchain technology allows us to more securely and transparently track all types of transactions, imagine the possibilities it presents across the supply chain.

Every time a product changes hands, the transaction can be documented, creating a permanent history of a product, from manufacture to sale. This can dramatically reduce time delays, added costs, and human error that plague transactions today.

Food – proof of origin
Food origin control chain. The food producers have to scan barcodes which will be stored in the immutable blockchain during every step of production. The end user can scan a barcode printed on the product package to retrieve the real origin of the food (meat / vegetables etc). 

Counterfeit-proof cash registers
Especially in Germany the tax fraud with the help of manipulated cash registers is a recurrent topic. Once the sold articles have been scanned they can be traced by the tax authorities during an audit. Don#t forget: The data in the tangle can#t be changed.

Stocktaking
Once scanned, items are stored almost immediately indelible / not changeable – permanently.

Just-In-Time
Installed parts or fully manufactured products can be reported directly to all partners involved in a mission-critical environment.
This message chain does not require complex database applications or similar expensive IT operations.

Parcel tracking
Scanned parcels are visible in the IOTA Tangle Ledger promptly. Later disputes about delivery times etc. can easily be cleared thanks to the time stamp stored during the creation of the transactions.

Land ownership title tracking
Governments and businesses around the world and especially in Africa are exploring ways to store data, such as contracts and assets, in blockchains – which are decentralized ledgers of digital transactions – amid rapidly growing investor interest.

Countries including Honduras, Georgia and Rwanda have signed deals to build blockchain-based land-titling systems, where information is stored in immutable digital registries.

Tanglescanner presentation at Codecamp Bangkok

I have been invited to give a presentation of the tanglescanner at the codecamp blockchain developers trend in 2018 event in Bangkok. Thank you Desmond and Pong for inviting me as a speaker.

It has been an interesting audience of around 100 blockchain developers.

After the presentation I did some live demos of scanning barcodes directly into the blockchain / tangle.

There has been a solid interest in the tanglescanner and we discussed about use cases like scanning goods during an ordering process or adding data to the blockchain using IoT devices.

IOTA is a very good solution for nano and micro transactions – no transaction fees and no need to transport a value during the transaction.

Due to the architecture of IOTA there are no scaling problems – the more transactions are processed – the faster they will be confirmed.

How Will Blockchain Technology Affect the Supply Chain?

The tanglescanner is doing exactly this: “Every time a product changes hands, the transaction could be documented, creating a permanent history of a product, from manufacture to sale.”

How Will Blockchain Technology Affect the Supply Chain?
If blockchain technology allows us to more securely and transparently track all types of transactions, imagine the possibilities it presents across the supply chain.
