He presumes that blockchain technology of smart contracts can be very useful for audit and to create well-protected, international logistical orders regarding nuclear resources and to protect them from unauthorized access.
Coalitions, like the Nuclear Suppliers Group, should start thinking now about blockchain and its implications for supply-side controls. This includes developing a firm understanding of the relationships between public and private sector implementations of blockchain, and the consequences for controlling nuclear and dual-use goods and technologies.

In future, blockchain technology can become a perfect solution to the issue of falsification and a source of preventing fraud as there will be no difficulty to trace the source of nuclear supplies.
