Coffee on Blockchain – Starbucks Partners with Microsoft To Leverage Blockchain Service

Microsoft in its latest blog post announced that Starbucks is working together with Microsoft for a new project with the implementation of emerging technologies including Blockchain for tracing coffee.
Coffee Tastes Better with Tech
In March last year, Starbucks said its new launch of ‘bean to cup’ on top of blockchain technology and its pilot testing with coffee farmers in Costa Rica, Colombia, and Rwanda. Nevertheless, the latest release of may 06, reveals United States-based coffee chain Starbucks will be leveraging ‘Microsoft Azure Blockchain platform’ for its digital traceability technology.  Concerning this, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella appreciates the collaboration and states that;
“They are coming together to completely take what is that iconic experience that is Starbucks and incorporating digital throughout,”
Per the statement provided by Microsoft, customers can track the production of Starbucks coffee and will help coffee bean farmers to leverage financing opportunities on the backend. Azur Blockchain by Microsoft is a newly launched blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) on May 02. In addition, Azur blockchain will help businesses build their application on its Cloud-based platform – as such, it presently supports JP Morgan Chase’s Ethereum powered Quorum platform.
Azure blockchain perhaps helps the coffee farmer to know and understand ‘where their bean go after they sell them’. This encourages awareness among farmers as well as to see the impact of the coffee they’re selling. It further mentioned the process of technology as;
Each state change is recorded to a shared, immutable ledger providing all parties a more complete view of their products’ journey.
Following the process, Starbucks senior vice president of Global Coffee & Tea ‘Michelle Burns’, states that;
“While high-quality, handcrafted beverages are so important, it’s the stories, the people, the connections, the humanity behind that coffee that inspires everything we do, he said. This kind of transparency offers customers the chance to see that the coffee they enjoy from us is the result of many people caring deeply.”

Singapore Govt Set To Issue Graduate Digital Certificates on Ethereum Mainnet

The recent report reveals that Ngee Ann Polytechnic, a Singaporean education institution is set on blockchain technology to issue ‘tamper-resistant’ digital certificates. Accordingly, graduate students from local schools, junior colleges, and tertiary institutions will obtain digital certifications from this year.
It was first confirmed by Singapore Education Minister Ong Ye Kung on May 03, 2019 – per the announcement, a Government-led initiative ‘OpenCerts’ which is powered by Ethereum blockchain -will cover 18 educational institutions to processed digital certificates for graduate students in Singapore. The Opencert is a collective effort by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Government Technology Agency (GovTech), SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), and National Ann Polytechnic (NP).
The update looks quite surprising to the founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin who took Twitter and appreciates the initiation. He states as follows;

However, his tweet quickly gained much attention with both positive as well as criticizing comments. One such user criticized his opinion of using blockchain for certification’ – with this, he states ‘You don’t need a blockchain for this. Given a valid certificate, to check revocation status you can simply ask the issuing institution’. As a response to this comment, Vitalik posted continued tweets and justified why digital certifications based on blockchain is worth considering in Singapore.
Source: Twitter
You only need the blockchain for the *revocation* list; certificates that have been *issued* would simply be signed (and this is how this specific app actually works).
The decision to employ ETH powered Opercert blockchain platforms comes as a solution to resolve productivity issues. This process purges two key requirements – physically leveraged document and verification mechanism.

Concerning what Opencerts will do in educational institutions, Ngee Ann Polytechnic Principal Clarence Ti says that;
“We issue over 4,000 diploma certificates and other kinds of certificates every year. The process of verifying the authenticity of certificates can be very manual,” he explained. “With blockchain, we can simplify this process, make it user-driven, and boost productivity. Not only will this help students effectively kickstart their career, but employers also get them on board with minimal hassle.”
