The Industrial Hemp & CBD industry is expected to be a $166B global industry according to Bank of America. Texas recently legalized Industrial Hemp and CBD allowing Texas farmers and entrepreneurs to participate. Global stakeholders need infrastructure to regulate, grow, produce, transport, test, manufacture, and sale industrial hemp and derived products like CBD, and 25,000+ other hemp-based products.

Two major problems exist that threaten this budding (pun intended) industry. First, there is no infrastructure to support this complex multifaceted supply chain. Second, global stakeholders have no means to connect, collaborate, and transact.

One of Austin's leading enterprise blockchain experts and innovators, Mark Anthony Morris, was first to recognized these two problems--he was also first to recognize Enterprise Blockchain in July of 2015. Mark has set out to solve these two problems and is integrating Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Sawtooth, another first, to provide an exemplar blockchain backbone for facilitating and super-charging a complex industrial hemp and CBD supply chain and global marketplace.
Mark is a State of Texas award nominated Software Architect and Developer known for designing futuristic solutions. Mark's newest solution is incorporating AI, AR, IIoT, 5G, and low power large radius technology to deliver a futuristic industrial agricultural commerce and regulatory platform that solves these two major problems.

Welcome Austin, Texas born startup, Hempchain™, the world's first blockchain supply chain software and marketplace for Industrial Hemp & CBD.

At the heart of Mark's Hempchain™ solution is Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Sawtooth, both designed and developed for industrial and enterprise blockchain solutions.

Sawtooth, an Intel initiative is well known as superior blockchain technology for supply chain solutions. Fabric, an IBM initiative is a leader and known for premiere enterprise blockchain solutions.

Each offer unique capabilities, but are distinct and separate solutions. Mark is breaking innovation ground, again, by integrating Fabric and Sawtooth into one cohesive interoperable multi-blockchain platform. Mark's design focuses Fabric on the enterprise aspects of the supply chain and marketplace and Sawtooth on the industrial component of automation, machine to machine, and edge computing aspects of the supply chain and global marketplace.

Join Mark for an enlightening presentation, discussion, and Q&A on the world's first integration of Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Sawtooth and the $166B Industrial Hemp & CBD industry.
