VeChain Adoption on the Rise
In terms of adoption, the VeChain project has been performing excellently of late, with the likes of Singapore’s luxury goods platform Reebonz, integrating VeChain’s blockchain solution into its processes earlier in January 2020, for product authentication.
Likewise, Japan’s Dai Nippon Printing Group (DNP Group) began using VeChain’s Toolchain in December 2019 for coffee cup recycling.
That’s not all, in January 2020, VeChain partnered with Jur, a real estate company to enable people to invest in real estate using VET.
What’s more, the VeChain Foundation collaborated with blockchain start-up ShareRing in February 2020, to allow hotels, car rentals, insurance, etc. to be paid using the VET token.
BTCManager informed on December 6, 2019, that VeChain has launched VeVote, a decentralized voting system aimed at promoting transparency and improving VeChain’s governance model.
