Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.
  • Cardano to create a blockchain solution, to guarantee the quality of Georgian wine.
  • The collaboration will benefit individual wineries, and enhance customer engagement.

According to the recent announcement from the Cardano Foundation, the platform is developing a blockchain solution on its ecosystem, to assure the quality and authenticity of Georgian wine. For this, the leading blockchain technology partnered with the National Wine Agency of Georgia, the Bolnisi Winemakers Association, and Scantrust. 

Mel McCann, Cardano’s Vice President of Engineering stated: 

 The Cardano Foundation prides itself on technical integration initiatives that foster the development of solutions for companies and systems of all kinds. This collaboration will develop a creative, cost-effective, and flexible certification and traceability system, which will provide transparency and authenticity for wineries and customers from point of harvest to point of consumption.

The four partners will work together to create a flexible, open track and trace solution to enhance Georgia’s standing as a premier wine producer internationally, as per the announcement. 

Cardano to Assure Wine’s Quality

The Cardano Foundation will oversee the collaboration, which will assist individual wineries by establishing a shared, scalable platform that is cost-effective for winemakers and enhances customer engagement. Also, a prototype program serving both local and export markets will be expanded in Bolnisi city. It will feature up to 100,000 bottles of wine harvested in the autumn of 2022 and bottled in the spring of 2023.

The bottles will have a distinctive label with a one-of-a-kind and secure QR code. This will allow customers to verify the authenticity of the products and learn more about their history. Additionally, the National Wine Agency will leverage the Cardano blockchain to generate open, verifiable records from existing wine certification data on wine aimed at export markets.
