Guided by a vision, VeChain has been making steady steps towards the mass adoption of enterprise-level blockchain applications. We have experienced a fruitful period in the last two years, with continuous growth and recognition among industry giants, peers, clients, and our partners sharing this journey with us.
At the launch of VeChainThor Blockchain, we pledged to grow alongside the community and that pledge remains the central focus of our development and management teams. Our mantra was to “enable everyone” through VeChainThor. To empower the community means that we, as the Foundation, have the duty to invest our resources and efforts into it. Various developer assistance bounties, grants, subsidies have been introduced since then, and we want to do even more for the community.
Back in January 2018, we launched the first Community Video Contest in a joint effort to build awareness of VeChain together with all of you. Today, with the spirit to celebrate the 2nd Year Anniversary of VeChainThor Mainnet, the VeChain Foundation would like to reaffirm our commitment towards the community, and we are proud to officially launch the VeChain Community Video Contest 2020!
By creating a video about VeChain and participating in the contest, you have the chance to be rewarded from a total prize pool of 3 million VET!
1st Event in the VeChainThor 2nd Year Anniversary Series
Driven by actual business needs, VeChain has been constantly accumulating experiences in blockchain applications in real business scenarios, creating business value for enterprise partners, and paving the way for further deployment of VeChainThor Blockchain in the future. The blockchain continues to be improved and is utilized by a wide variety of 3rd party businesses and independent community projects.
Now, we are turning the spotlight on the community. For the first event in our 2nd Year Anniversary, through this special video contest, we seek your help and expertise to share what makes VeChain unique to the wider market and community.
