The Synergistic Relationship Between The Blockchain, Commodities Trading & Mining

As commodities begin to be represented on the blockchain they will add significant value to the industry.

The global adoption of blockchain technology is rapidly impacting a number of important industries including the market for commodities. As blockchain systems are implemented across the mining and commodities sector they promise to deliver efficiencies and liquidity that has been previously unattainable. Not only will blockchain technology add value to the industry but through a symbiotic relationship, commodities will bring value to the market for blockchain technology.

The circulation of commodities is the original precondition of the circulation of money” — Karl Marx

In previous articles, we have discussed how blockchain technology will improve efficiencies in mine logistics across the commodity supply chain. The valuable contributions that it will bring to commodities mining will improve efficiencies, reduce risk and minimise losses for operators. These enhancements will allow commodities to reach the market with less friction and should ultimately reduce the cost of commodities mining. If these cost savings are passed down the supply chain the impact will be felt in numerous industries and ultimately by the consumer.

Improving the efficiency of mining operations will be a driving force for the adoption of blockchain technology but there are also benefits to be derived from trading using blockchain-based systems. As commodities begin to be listed on blockchains for trading purposes they will bring value to the market capitalisation of the blockchain industry as a whole. This in turn will drive greater adoption of the technology and increase development budgets.

There are more than 100 commodity exchanges globally which trade in over 70 types of commodities. These exchanges make it possible to trade in futures contracts that use commodities as their underlying asset. There are two types of commodities traded around the world. Hard commodities are natural resources extracted from the planet such as precious metals, base metals and energy products. Soft commodities represent livestock and agricultural products such as soybeans and sugar. Blockchain technology is optimising the production and delivery of these commodities to the market but will also improve how these commodities are traded.

The global market capitalisation of cryptocurrencies is currently over $555 billion with the three largest coins being Bitcoin ($342 billion), Ethereum ($66 billion) and Ripple ($28 billion). It is expected that the values of these coins will grow but the introduction of commodities trading onto blockchains will drive significant liquidity and resources into the marketplace. This trend is mirrored by the growth of securities on blockchains. A recent HSBC bank report estimates that the value of the global market for securities is currently worth $178 trillion and the bank believes that by 2027 the market for digital securities will be worth $24 trillion. It is evident that the market for digital securities is potentially far larger than the market for cryptocurrencies, the same will be true for commodities.

Like cryptocurrencies commodities which are listed on digital exchanges can be continuously and globally traded. This opens the market to a greater volume of participants which increases liquidity. It will soon be possible for people with a smart device and internet connection to trade in global commodities as they become listed on blockchain-based exchanges. One of the biggest markets for these digital products is expected to be Asia and the Enegra Group is ideally positioned to capitalise on this growth. The benefits that blockchain technology will bring to the process of trading commodities are significant and we will cover them in our next article.

It is evident that the global market for commodities dwarfs the market for cryptocurrencies. Some estimates have put the market size for commodities above $20 trillion but it is hard to ascertain its true value. The largest coal miner in the world is currently BHP which has a market capitalisation of over $146 billion. If BHP were to list their equity on a blockchain they would be catapulted into the second-largest asset by market capitalisation on any blockchain. Listing commodities and corporate entities on blockchains vastly increase the size of the market for digital assets and as adoption increases, the budgets for technology development will grow.

A fascinating process is unfolding to reveal the symbiotic relationship that exists between the implementation of blockchain technology in commodities mining and mining’s potential to grow the market for blockchain-based products. This relationship will be optimised through the introduction of commodities trading on digital exchanges. Mining supply chains, commodities trading and the growth of the blockchain industry are interconnected. These synergies are powerful and bring strength to a burgeoning industry.

Blockchain & The Digital Twin

New and innovative technologies are combining to improve mine efficiency.

Data integrity is the key to developing new technologies that enhance the ways we mine and manage commodities. The reliability of data is what allows critical processes to operate accurately across vast distances and complex implementations. Concepts such as the digital twin combined with IoT infrastructure, blockchain technology and AI are set to revolutionise how the mining industry operates. As these processes are refined in mining they will spread to other vital industries.

“Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine” — Peter Sondergaard

The digital twin will play a significant role in how we manage and develop mining systems. A digital twin is the replica of a process, product or business that can be used to predict behaviours over its lifecycle. There are numerous advantages to digital twinning but a core requirement is that the information utilised is accurate. It is here that the integrity of the blockchain becomes relevant to the development of this technology.

The mining sector is beginning to implement a number of use cases for digital twins that replicate mine sites, supply chains and equipment. Mining operations are currently using digital twinning to simulate and predict the future outcomes of processes throughout commodity supply chains. Innovations in AI and machine learning allow data analytics to be applied to these models to optimise mining processes. This is a rapidly expanding market and revenues from the digital twin industry are forecast to reach $13.3 billion by 2023

One valuable implementation of this technology is the remote management and monitoring of mine sites. Growth in data bandwidth now allows mining operations to be monitored from locations at great distances from the physical location of the mine. Remote monitoring delivers cost savings because operators are able to monitor multiple sites from the same facility. It also allows key personnel to be concentrated in the same location creating centres of excellence. Digital twins can be utilised in remote monitoring to replicate processes on the mine site for troubleshooting and optimisation. The key to building trust in digital twin systems is the integrity of the data used in the modelling. Blockchain technology ensures that data generated on the mine site is rapidly and immutably delivered to the digital twin.

Digital twins will soon play a significant role in verifying the authenticity of commodities. Blockchain technology can already be used to track the movement of goods along supply chains to verify their origin. Now with digital twinning that commodity can have its twin traverse a digital supply chain to verify that commodity movements match their intended path. Such processes will have an impact on illegally mined commodities by identifying deviations from the regulated behaviour. These virtual simulations will allow miners to track the movement of their products with extreme accuracy across the globe, streamlining operations and reducing the chances of theft.

Data is the new oil and its integrity is enhanced through the immutability of blockchain technology. With blockchains, we are able to distribute data across global networks with confidence in both the accuracy and speed of transmission. Blockchains consist of blocks of information that record network transactions. As each new block is created it contains a reference to the preceding block, creating an immutable chain of information.

These blockchains are stored across the network on ledgers which are updated as each new block is added to the chain. The term block time refers to the time it takes to create a new block and on the Ethereum blockchain, this is currently just over 13 seconds. The decentralised nature of blockchains ensures that there is no single point of failure within the system. It is because of this that decentralised systems are inherently more robust than centralised systems.

The programmable nature of blockchain transactions brings an additional layer of trust and security to complex global networks. Smart contracts are programmable self-executing actions which can be embedded into blockchain code. Once triggered these actions can be both trackable and irreversible. When a commodity reaches a certain stage of the supply chain an action can be triggered that identifies that state, changes a price or alerts an operator. These actions take place without a centralised authority and improve the accuracy of time-sensitive processes.

As the combination of these technologies is refined we will see them adopted in wider industries. Blockchain, digital twinning, AI and IoT will merge to improve industries such as healthcare, manufacturing and the management of utilities. The processes that emerge as efficient methodologies in commodity mining will soon impact and improve many other key industries in modern society

Blockchain For Commodities Logistics

Streamlining operational logistics for improved speed and profitability.

The implementation of blockchain technology promises to improve productivity and profit margins in the commodities mining industry. As we identified in our last article, the implementation of blockchain-based systems will soon impact every level of the commodity supply chain. One of the key ways to improve productivity and minimise loss is by improving the accuracy and reliability of logistics systems. At The Enegra Group, we are directly involved with assisting mine logistics in Indonesia and developments in this sector are of particular interest to us.

Global logistics operations are estimated to be worth a staggering USD $8.1 trillion annually and this figure is expected to double within the next three years. This lucrative industry suffers from losses associated with inefficiency, theft, middlemen, cyber-attacks and product degradation. Lost or stolen cargo is believed to cost the marine shipping industry up to $50 billion a year and the same problems impact commodity mining supplies. Innovative implementations of blockchain technology are now set to improve profits and reduce risks across the industry.

Toyota developed the famous process of inventory management known as Just In Time method, which is taught in management schools around the world today. The car manufacturer identified that significant risks and costs are associated with stock management at each stage of the production process. Too much or too little stock generate loss and risk. The Just In Time method aims to deliver the right volume of stock for each production stage without holding more stock than necessary. This not only streamlines the production process but also optimises stock management and cost.

The value of the Just In Time method is reflected in commodity logistics through the benefits of streamlined delivery and inventory management. The implementation of blockchain technology can now improve these processes and promises to significantly increase profitability. Although the technology has yet to be comprehensively implemented in commodity industries such as coal, the speed and profitability it delivers will be key factors in driving the wider adoption of blockchain across commodity logistics.

There are several key advantages to using blockchain-based systems over traditional paper processes. As a commodity unit moves along the production line into the distribution stream, its progress can now be digitally registered on the blockchain. This digital process is significantly superior to a paper system as there are fewer opportunities for error. As blocks of information are created on a blockchain they store the information of all previous transactions, creating an immutable record that reduces individual and systemic errors. Continued analysis of the logistics data can then identify bottlenecks to improve profitability.

The benefits of digitalisation extend beyond the financial and environmental costs of managing a paper trail. As blockchains can be made accessible to any authorised online participant, logistics chains can be managed in innovative new ways. Thanks to increased bandwidth for data transmission, mining operation centres can now be located away from the mine, in some cases even in different countries. This allows greater centralisation of data which delivers cost-savings and gives management a broader view of operations. Blockchain-based structures can now enhance and secure that data, delivering the integrity required across large networks.

Trust is a key issue within the management of any logistical data system. Participants at every stage need to be assured that an accurate quantity of goods will be delivered within the correct timeframe. The combination of technologies such as QR codes, automated monitoring and photographic evidence all contribute to the high quality of data which can now be entered onto blockchains. The immutable nature of blockchains ensures that the data cannot be tampered with, improving trust and reducing friction across networks.

The current global lockdown has precipitated the start of an economic recession in Indonesia. This is the country’s first recession since the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997 and it will have significant impacts in a country that has traditionally been a regional powerhouse. Although extremely concerning, recessions can be transformative periods which lead to renewed economic growth after they end. During the current economic recession, there will be opportunities to improve the commodity logistics sector within Indonesia through the implementation of blockchain technology. These improvements will increase industrial efficiency and assist in the speed of recovery and minimise the recession period.
