VeChain Stats ( from https://vechainstats.com/ )

As of 5th June, 2020

VeChain’s native cryptocurrency token VET is a utility token for Vechain’s blockchain system.

VET has the following use cases:

VET is used as payment for VeChain’s products and services; meaning the more VET a person or enterprise holds, the higher priority they have when it comes to using VeChain’s resources.

VET is used to transfer value from smart contracts and is used in transactions on decentralized applications powered by VeChain’s public blockchain.

VET can be used to generate a secondary VeChain token called VeThor or Thor Power (VTHO), which provides access to VeChain’s supply chain technology.

VET is used as a trading instrument by cryptocurrency traders. VET is also used by investors as a speculative cryptocurrency investment.

All in all, VeChain’s VET token has lots of utility within the expansive VeChain ecosystem, as well as in the speculative crypto trading markets.

VeChain (VET) Token Launch and Distribution

The VeChain (VET) initial coin offering (ICO) was carried out through August to September 2017, where the project’s native cryptocurrency launched as an ERC-20 token with the ticker symbol VEN, (which was later changed to VET).

The VeChain ICO raised $20 million selling tokens at a rate of 1.0 ETH = 350000.0 VEN.

1 billion VEN tokens were initially created but ~133 million were later burned as a consequence of the initial distribution plan yielding a total supply of 867,162,634 VEN. Out of this total supply, the distribution was as follows:

410 million VEN was sold in the public ICO

90 million VEN was sold in a private sale

128.5 million VEN was sold to ‘enterprise investors’

270 million VEN were allocated to the VeChain team

Following the ICO, VeChain’s mainnet went live in August 2018 and VEN tokens were migrated to VET tokens. VEN token holders received 100 mainnet VET tokens for every 1 VEN, making VeChain’s new total supply: 86,712,634,466 VET.

VeChain Enables Producers Market To Trace Agriculture Products To Support Underserved Farmers Globally

Producers Market chose to implement VeChain ToolChain™ to trace agricultural products to maintain and enhance their export competitiveness in the global marketplace. The main goal is to fight back and support vulnerable farmers in emerging markets with exporting their premium outputs.

The collaboration currently targets Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) agricultural farmers.

More customers and end-users are looking towards digitized platforms to buy their products now.

Producers Market has chosen VeChain ToolChain™ — the one-stop BaaS Data Platform to bridge the gap between the manufacturers and consumers by integrating blockchain technology into the value chain.

Producers Market aims to empower farmers by establishing a direct market linkage facilitation to incentivize regeneration, from soil to economy to society at large with a powerful transparency application named StoryBird powered by VeChain ToolChain™. It collects and uploads authentic product information onto the VeChainThor Blockchain, which enables all stakeholders in the trade, including the farmers, processors, added-value parties, e-commerce platforms, buyers and end consumers to validate product origin and trace logistics of delivery. This enables a traceable, visible, and transparent digital marketplace for the agricultural market, which allows for agricultural producers, processors, packers, distributors, brands and other added-value stakeholders to publicly list Organization and Product profiles to access global markets.

Using StoryBird allows farmers to advertise their products through visual media such as photos and graphics, and even insert the background history of their farm. The application allows consumers to appreciate the story of the product that they have purchased and allows an unprecedented way of giving life to their product while communicating the effort directly to consumers.

The first significant project is a D2C (Direct-to-consumer) digital platform in the meat and seafood industry that will be traced by VeChain ToolChain™ from the various product origins around the Americas to consumer’s homes in the United States. The project is scheduled to launch in September of this year.

Sunny Lu, CEO and co-founder at VeChain says, “Positioned as the enabler for our partners, VeChain aims to provide a standardized tool for the enterprises to build and integrate blockchain technology into their business easily. Whether targeted to large organizations or small companies, or even individual business owners, VeChain ToolChain™ helps you realize your exact vision and scale your business with a reasonable cost.”

With the growing exports volumes of agricultural products from LAC and other regions, there is a great potential for VeChain ToolChain™ to roll out more partnerships in the future.

Walmart China Brings Together Sam’s Club and VeChain to Take One Step Further Towards Blockchainization With Safe Food Traceability Platform

On June 25th, 2019, Walmart China, PwC China and VeChain jointly announced the establishment of the Walmart China Blockchain Traceability Platform. Following a press release made by VeChain, it was revealed that Sam’s Club China, a membership-only premium shopping chain owned by Walmart China has rolled out their variant of the traceability platform, Sam’s Club Blockchain Traceability Platform.

Using VeChain ToolChain combined with cold-chain IoT and a variety of traditional software and hardware sensors, all stakeholders in the supply chain process will be able to upload key logistics and manufacturing data onto the immutable VeChainThor public blockchain. This allows for tamper-proof record keeping for all parties involved, while simultaneously eliminating information asymmetry from consumers. The end product will be tagged with a secured QR code, in which customers can scan using their smartphones to view the full logistical history of the product, including country of origin, packaging information, storage temperature, and various marketing information including pictures and videos.

With this platform, Sam’s Club is able to assure their members that the products they buy are trusted, safe, and genuinely sourced from their places of origin.

According to Sunny Lu, Co-Founder of VeChain, “A combination of a standardized yet customizable platform is the key to break down the barrier of adoption for blockchain.

With Sam’s Club adopting VeChain’s technology, the VeChain Foundation yet again leads the pack in terms of public blockchain adoption in the industry.

Unlike its positioning in the USA, Sam’s Club in China had been repositioned into a chain of high-end, membership-only shopping clubs. Sam’s Club currently runs 26 outlets in China, and is looking to have 40 to 45 clubs in operation or under construction by the end of 2022. source

Bayer’s G4A selects VeChain as partner for CSecure clinical trial management platform

Bayer’s G4A startup round in China has produced a partnership with VeChain to collect and track supply chain data for Bayer’s clinical trials. The platform, known as Csecure, can monitor user and product data entered into the platform to ensure it is consistent throughout the trial, leading to improved safety and precision.

Sunny Lu, VeChain CEO, commented on the partnership:

“After this partnership with Bayer, our greatest feeling was their rigor [precisness] towards the medical industry. This precision extends beyond just product design to include precision in communication, and in with communication between Bayer’s related business departments. We can really feel the complete meticulous attitude that Bayer has for the medical and health cause. “

The G4A partnership could have a lot of advantages for VeChain. In addition to CSecure being used internally with Bayer, G4A partners gain access to exclusive mentors, networking opportunities, and regional support. The whole process of engaging with such a large medical organization should bring valuable experience for VeChain’s product development team, as they better understand the professional needs of a leading medical enterprise.

A case for DNV GL & My Story

As a leader in the certification of energy industry processes, DNV GL is a natural choice to verify the supply chains of EV battery and raw material suppliers. Erik Dugstad of the DNV GL Energy Advisory for the Nordic & Baltic region suggested that DNV GL’s My Story would be the perfect tool for battery manufacturers looking to provide customers and end consumers with verification that these eco-friendly vehicles were actually produced in a way that is friendly to the environment. For many buyers, the whole purpose of switching to an EV is to reduce their carbon footprint, and having proof of that on the public blockchain is a great way to build trust in that regard.

In fact, the risk of not providing verification is that as mining processes become more and more damaging, consumers could become disenchanted with EVs altogether, hurting the industry and setting back the natural progression of technology. My Story solves this by first uploading key supply chain data to VeChain’s public blockchain, with DNV GL providing a verification that the process was done correctly and free of human tampering.
