Information About Block Array

Tennessee-based Block Array is introducing an integrated blockchain solution to enhance the traceability program of businesses’ supply chain operations.

By providing the infrastructure for creating vertically integrated stacks, and a system of ARY tokens to embed the product information on the Ethereum blockchain, they will provide a range of services to both businesses and consumers.

How it works

Many companies around the world, such as Amazon, Wal-mart and Ebay, require that products they handle have barcodes issued by non-profit organization G1. The information contained in a G1 barcode is limited to a company prefix and a product identification number. This information is required for large retailers to handle companies’ products, but is not enough information for a company’s supply-chain system.

Using a block chain data interface protocol (BDI), Block Array has developed the infrastructure for creating software libraries where information about a product is stored as it moves through the supply chain. Using the G1-developed EPCIS standard, the libraries will allow companies to create and share visibility event data, and express it as a URI.


With the standardized protocols, the data can be sourced from a large number of legacy systems and presented in a uniform manner. Each visibility event will also be logged on the Ethereum blockchain. This allows the data to be presented as a smart contract, enabling companies to comply with recently passed laws such as the California Transparency Supply Chain Act or the Electronic Logging Data Mandate.

The smart contract allows companies to define specific employee permissions when it comes to handling different parts of the supply chain. Combined with geofencing-based automatic triggers, this gives the company a much more granular view of the efficiency of their operations. Tracking the chain-of-custody will also enhance their ability to deal with issues like products being diverted to the grey market and keeping counterfeit goods out of the supply chain.

Adoption of the EPCIS standard will also allow for a more efficient handling of goods at Port & Harbor terminals.

Projects in development

Block Array is developing a dashboard feature for their Enterprise App that gives companies an overview of their entire supply chain.

They are also developing the Badger Mobile App, which will allow customers to directly scan barcodes from participating companies. By embedding the URI information in the G1 barcode, and anchoring it to the Ethereum blockchain, customers will have instant access to dependable information about a products origins, and it’s way from supplier to retailer.

With logistics companies signing up to the service, Block Array will aggregate the availability of unused trucking space in a localized area. This information will be used as the base to develop a virtual marketplace allowing truckers to sell that space through a peer-to-peer network.

What are the ARY tokens for

ARY tokens are not created as a speculative product. Rather they will be used within the framework created by Block Array to access and pay for services. You need ARY tokens for the following actions:

· To buy GS1 barcodes from Block Array and anchor them to the Ethereum blockchain. This is done by burning a portion of those tokens to create a time stamp.

· To participate in supply chain management system powered by Block Array (e.g. for truck drivers)

· To buy unused truck space from the peer-to-peer virtual marketplace
