Tequila Brand Otaca Uses NFC Tag That Enables Re-Ordering With a Smartphone May 3, 2022, 6:51 a.m.
Consumer engagement is significant—research has shown that what we touch affects what we buy. According to a recent study conducted by the American Marketing Association, people value products much more highly if they own them. That feeling of "ownership" can happen if we merely touch an item in the store (even before we actually purchase them). This feeling of ownership can also occur online when we see photos of other peoples' hands touching the product. In that same study, 43% of product social media posts included showed photos of hands in physical contact with the product, and these garnered on average 65% more ‘likes’ than the posts that did not show hands touching the goods. Technology-enabled devices operate on similar principles.

A Non-Fungible Token Solution for the Track and Trace of Pharmaceutical Supply Chain April 28, 2022, 10:07 a.m.
In this paper, a decentralized solution based on non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which can improve the track and trace capability of the standard serialization process, is presented. Non-fungible tokens are minted in the blockchain and inherit all the advantages provided by this technology. As blockchain technology is becoming more and more popular, adoption of track and trace will increase tremendously. Focusing on the pharmaceutical industry’s use of track and trace, this paper presents the concepts and architectural elements necessary to support the non-fungible token solution, culminating in the presentation of a use case with a prototypical application.
