From the Document: "Some stakeholders in the technology, agriculture, and food sector have advocated for the use of blockchain technology to trace agricultural products as they move through the supply chain and to verify their authenticity. Many expect use of blockchain technology to increase in this sector. Congress may consider federal investments in blockchain technology research, technical assistance, and infrastructure to support emerging applications of this technology. Congress also may face questions regarding the regulation of particular uses of blockchain technology."
