Vechain is a trust-free, complete and distributed business ecosystem based on the blockchain technology.
It focuses on variety of different solutions for different markets including liquor, luxury goods, retail, agriculture and logistics. Scope wise the project is huge with plenty of different solutions incorporated.
Usage wise Vechain combines blockchain, IoT (Internet of Things) devices, unique IDs and NFCs (near field communication) for comprehensive blockchain based ecosystem.
Tokens and usage
Vechain uses two token system VET and THOR POWER. The closest comparison would be NEO/GAS.
The function of the VET is to serve as the smart payment currency, to enable rapid value circulation within the ecosystem based on the VeChain Blockchain
On the other hand, the THOR Power represents the underlying cost of using the VeChain Blockchain and will be consumed (proportionally burnt) after certain blockchain operations are performed, such as transferring VET and executing smart contracts.
Vechain is constantly providing news. The recent updates are: L28 is a branded premium meat supplier in Western Australia and it has joined hands with VeChain to develop a meat traceability solution. This comes after earlier news of partnership with Walmart China where 23 product lines have been tested and launched on the Vechain Platform making blockchain usage in supermarkets a reality.
