Ambrosus, a community-driven ecosystem to assure the quality, safety, and origins of products, has launched a Developer Portal and Gateway API, both of which are public Alpha releases. The developer portal will provide the building blocks for developers who would like to build solutions on top of the Ambrosus Network (AMB-NET). The primary functions of AMB-NET are designating asset identity and tracking assets across the supply-chain lifecycle. AMB-NET tracks various conditions of assets such as transportation, delivery, storage, and temperature.
Ambrosus is a Switzerland-based startup that provides a blockchain technology-based solution to communicate with sensors in order to digitize, measure, and record information generated from supply chains. The company aims to build a community-driven ecosystem that ensures the origin, quality, and safety of products worldwide. The company is initially focusing on food and pharmaceutical products.
Regarding food and pharmaceutical verticals, the press release states that the company aims to optimize these ecosystems first, and that “these markets are ripe for disruption” as 600 million people globally fall ill every year due to food contamination, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition, INTERPOL estimates that in the developed world up to 1% of available medicines are counterfeit, and globally this figure increases to 10%.
