Abstract
Blockchain technologies can be used in any industry where verification and logging of certain actions are required. In particular, in the manufacture of medicines it is necessary to have reliable information about the origin of the raw material from which the drug is made, and the process of production of the drug. Blockchain provides protection against counterfeiting and counterfeit drugs. The article describes the model of the contract system blockchain and the work of miners in the chain "manufacturer-pharmacy". According to this scheme, blockchain technology can be implemented in the production and supply of medicines. The proposed model allows us to trace the origin of pharmaceutical raw materials and medicinal products, to guarantee the quality of drugs entering the pharmacy warehouse and pharmacy. This will protect the market from counterfeit medicines.
