As of July 1, 2018, SCS has launched a new Department for Blockchain and Internet-Of-Things. Alain Brenzikofer heads the newly formed group as the new Department Head. We congratulate Alain Brenzikofer on the new role and wish him every success.
Distributed Ledger Technologies, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, IoT: The terms are ubiquitous and will disrupt various industries. Alain Brenzikofer has been observing these technologies for years and is a profound expert on the scene. Interesting applications arise today in the energy sector, but also in the commodity trade, with guarantees of origin. Some of these are already under development at SCS: As Partner in the “Quartierstrom” project in Walenstadt, where a blockchain-based peer-to-peer energy market is being created.
