PHILIP WHITE: Wine provenance watchdog
Philip White discusses a new cryptographic digital business model which could revolutionise the way wine is sold, mainly by eliminating bullshit.

As the value of expensive exported wine continues to increase, many opportunities arise for those who would tinker with that main key of added value: the wine’s provenance.
