VeChain is a blockchain platform based in Singapore and China. It has operations in Asia, but also in Europe and America. It was founded in 2015 by CEOs Sunny Lu and Jay Zhang. It’s designed to enhance supply chain management and business processes. It uses physical tracking combined with blockchain records to keep tabs on real-world products from production to delivery, preventing fraud and increasing transparency. VeChain aims to provide a full view of an organization by disintermediating information from data silos.
VeChain mixes a decentralized and a centralized model, which balance will vary as the ecosystem matures, starting with a structure more centralized at the start and slowly giving more power to the community. It wants to become a leading platform for ICOs and for conducting transactions between IoT connected devices. VeChain has two tokens: a VeChain token (VET) as a value layer and a VeChain Thor Energy (VTHO) as a smart contract layer.
Characteristics of VeChain
VeChain was founded in 2015 but the first version wasn’t launched until June 2016. Its main characteristics are:
VeChain takes a very specialized approach to its development, designing a specific structure for the movement of goods and services across the supply chain. That makes VET a utility token.
It has two token systems: VET, which funds the projects; and VTHO, which powers the blockchain.
Blockchain technology records data without giving the option of being changed. That allows a truthful record of the conditions throughout the supply chain.
It can be used to verify the authenticity of the items purchased, especially important for tackling fraud in the luxury goods sector.
