Unlocking the Potential of Blockchain for Agriculture
- Blockchain networks can be completely open for everyone to join with a full permit to read and write on the blockchain (called a public, permissionlessblockchain). In many cases, it makes sense to at least include authentication of members (public, permissoned) or even to keep the network exclusive for a limited number of members (private blockchain, i.e. cooperating companies or government organisations). This is usually necessary if sensitive or private data will be saved on the network.
