Each day, Benzinga takes a look back at a notable market-related moment that occurred on this date.What Happened? On this day in 1979, IBM (NYSE: IBM) replaced Chrysler in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.Where The Market Was: The Dow closed at 841.98. The S&P 500 traded at around 102.91.What Else Was Going On In The World? In 1979, the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, or ESPN, launched. Federal Reserve interest rates finished the year at 15.25%. The average cost of a new house was $58,100.Symbolic Dow Shift: In June of 1979, the Dow dropped American auto giant Chrysler, which had been struggling in a difficult auto market. Replacing Chrysler with IBM was a symbolic acknowledgment that technology, not industry, was the future of the U.S. economy.Surprisingly, IBM has been a major market laggard in the nearly three decades since it was added to the Dow. Since July 1, 1979, IBM's stock is up 661% compared to a 2,800% gain for the Dow over that same period.Of course, IBM fared much better than Chrysler, which declared bankruptcy in 2009. In 2011, Fiat took over ownership of Chrysler, and the stock now trades as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (NYSE: FCAU).Related Links:The Original Dow Jones Industrial Average: Where Are They Now?What DJIA Changes Mean For GE, Walgreens InvestorsSee more from Benzinga * 5 Reasons Investors Should Buy American Stocks * Could Collateralized Loan Obligations Trigger The Next Financial Crisis? * 8 Stock Catalysts For The Week Ahead(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

Democratization of blockchain is poised to hit new high with coronavirus crisis induced demand of offerings based on the next-gen technology.
The "Black Lives Matter" movement has spurred many tech stalwarts to realize the benefits of inclusion, reevaluate their diversity practices and be more racially inclusive in their approach.
(Bloomberg) -- Consumers around the world will soon be able to know intricate life details of the salmon they eat with a new blockchain initiative from top exporter Norway.The Norwegian Seafood Association has partnered with International Business Machines Corp. and technology provider Atea ASA to gather data on how salmon is bred, stored and shipped, information that consumers will eventually access by scanning a QR code. That will help Norway’s suppliers differentiate their premium products from other exporters, curb origin fraud and cut waste.“Blockchain lets us share the fish’s journey from the ocean to the dinner table,” said Alf-Goran Knutsen, chief executive officer of Kvaroy Arctic, a supplier that’s part of the initiative. “This is now more timely than ever.”As consumers increasingly want to know what’s in their food and how it’s produced, blockchain has helped retailers ensure products from chicken to pasta aren’t tainted or passed off as something else. But fish has been harder to trace, making it particularly vulnerable to fraud. Advocacy group Oceana has estimated that one in five seafood samples are mislabeled.While Norway has stricter rules than many producers on how it treats salmon, fish farming globally has been mired in controversies from the use of antibiotics to the sustainability of fish feed. Using blockchain to monitor a fish’s life story will help Norway’s producers safeguard their reputation and stop inferior products being faked as Norwegian, according to Espen Braathe, an executive at IBM Food Trust Europe.“When you sell a fresh, clean product, it’s really important you produce as much evidence as possible,” Braathe said in an interview.The project, the first to cover the entire salmon supply chain, will go live by the end of September and will also monitor trout. Sensors and cameras will record details such as water temperature and what the fish are fed, Atea CEO Steinar Sonsteby said.The initiative, which will later expand to wild catches, should allow Norwegian farmers to obtain higher prices for their fish, said Robert Eriksson, CEO of the Norwegian Seafood Association. The target is for each member to trace as much as 40% of their fish population by 2025, according to IBM.Concerns over the link between food and recent coronavirus cases in China shows how blockchain could ease such worries, Sonsteby said. The new outbreak had been blamed on imported salmon, and fears over whether food can transmit viruses had led salmon to be boycotted in China, even though experts said there’s no evidence the fish was the origin or intermediate host.“It really exemplifies very well how a solution like this could work to introduce trust into the value chain and the industry,” Sonsteby said. For retailers in general, “they want to be 100% sure that what they are buying and selling on is something that they can be 100% behind.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
