Dan Weinberger, CEO of Morpheus.Network, the cutting-edge supply chain platform utilizing blockchain technology to improve transactions, was invited by Liu Hongsheng, the President of the China National Institute of Standardization to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe to the blockchain conference.
The semiannual UN/CEFACT forum includes dozens of sessions and workshops throughout a week-long conference highlighting modern technologies such as blockchain and IoT in transport and logistics. The UN/CEFACT looks to advance their current and forthcoming projects, maintenance tasks, domain activities, and technical framework in the upcoming forum.
Morpheus.Network CEO Dan Weinberger will give a speech regarding the standardization of blockchain technology and other challenges associated with implementation. Mr. Weinberger, along with former DHL CEO Roger Crook, blockchain pioneer Charlie Shrem, and other experts from various fields, are involved with the Morpheus.Network as team members and advisors.
“The greatest technologies require global adoption to reach their fullest potential,” says Weinberger. “It is absolutely essential to promote the standardization of these new supply chain technologies in order to interconnect the globe. United Nations forums, like this one in Hangzhou, have a huge impact on this standardization, which is necessary for global adoption. I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at this conference and help form the optimized supply chain the future has in store.”
Roger Crook, Head of Global Logistics at Morpheus.Network, released a statement saying that, “blockchain technology is still in a very early stage of development and its possibilities are just now beginning to be uncovered. Global supply chain standardization is a top priority at this time, and I’m happy to be working with Morpheus.Network as one of their advisors in this area. International forums promote information sharing both within the industry and to a lay audience and are extremely important to the future of blockchain.”
Mr. Weinberger looks forward to sharing his knowledge and experience as well as learning from other leaders within the industry. Every day, blockchain technology is reaching new users and serving new functions within and outside of the economy, and support from the United Nations will help increase its audience and awareness of its possibilities.
