Need to know

Founded in 2015, Everledger is a global enterprise that tracks the provenance of high-value assets on a global digital ledger. Emerging technologies including blockchain, smart contracts and IoT have been harnessed to create solutions for encrypting the immutable provenance of an asset through a distributed ledger platform. These technological solutions are developed and deployed to markets where provenance matters, providing supply chain stakeholders with an immutable history of an asset’s authenticity, existence and ownership. This asserts transparency throughout the supply chain process which serves to mitigate global risk and fraud challenges faced by stakeholders such as insurance companies and banks.
