Covantis, a blockchain initiative backed by global agribusiness giants like Cargill, has selected Ethereum-focused firm ConsenSys as its technology partner.

On Jan. 23 a press release stated that within the partnership ConsenSys will build an Ethereum-based blockchain platform to digitize the post-trade finance industry and bring efficiencies and cost savings to the international agribusiness supply chain

The concept of Covantis was established in October 2018, when four of the biggest global agribusinesses companies announced a joint initiative to digitize their global shipping transactions using blockchain and artificial intelligence.

Covantis’ founding members include:

  • Cargill
