HashCash Partners With International Car Manufacturers To Develop Mineral Supply Chain
November 20, 2019

HashCash Consultants, a Blockchain company, has announced a partnership with a group of international car, mining and battery manufacturers to develop a blockchain-based supply chain network to track minerals.

On November 18, it has been reported by Business Insider that the parties are planning to build a blockchain-based supply chain system to trace ethical sourcing of minerals used in car and battery production such as cobalt, tungsten, and lithium. By doing this, the companies aim to address child labor for mining operations.

However, the planned network is set to bring more transparency to the entire supply chain of minerals specifically mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

In 2017, the United Nations estimated that 168 million children were in exploitative working conditions globally, with around 40,000 children in cobalt mines in the DRC.

With the establishment of the blockchain-based supply chain network, HashCash and partnering companies intend to track the authentication of the provenance and ethical sourcing of minerals, ensuring that each participant, from the mine to the automobile manufacturers, acts in compliance with corresponding regulations.

Previously, automaker Volvo joined a project to monitor cobalt from DRC that overseen by responsible-sourcing group RCS Global, with the aim to prove that their electric vehicles do not rely on conflict minerals or child labor.

Thus, Ford, IBM, LG Chem, and Huayou Cobalt also participate in the initiative.
