Overstock-CEO, tZERO, Chairman of the Board and Blockchain Enthusiast Patrick M. Byrne sees the Blockchain technology is the future for the commodity trading:
"A Smart Contract Automation of these transactions is to reduce the total cost significantly and at the same time, transparency in the procurement of Rare earth Metals along the entire supply chain effectively improve.

The company wants to give up the retail business in the coming year – probably because the competition is in the Form of Amazon to be far superior. With Medici Overstock has a venture capital subsidiary, which makes targeted investments in DLT-sector. So far, with little success: Medici has generated in the year 2017, a loss of $ 22 million. The first nine months of this year, except for Medici with a loss of 39 million dollars is even worse.
