Investing.com write up on VeChain

VeChain Thor (VET) is a public blockchain solution, supporting smart contracts, specially designed to give companies an easy way to track their inventory. It combines the Internet of things (IoT) technology with a blockchain in order to digitize the supply chain.

VeChain allows brands to monitor their sales channels in real time by putting Radio-frequency identification (RFID) labels on the products, which help consumers to track the whole history of a product in just a few clicks.

Basically, the project aims to solve the problem of counterfeiting goods on the market.

Imagine you want to buy a Gucci bag, but you are not sure if it is original or fake. If Gucci is partnering with VeChain, you can simply scan the RFID tag and receive all historical information about the product – year of production, country of origin, type of material, etc.

Brief history of VeChain

VeChain (VEN) is one of the first cryptocurrency technology companies in the world, founded in 2015.

The project launched its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in August 2017. VeChain was built on the platform as an ERC 20 token, but at the end of June 2018 it launched its own blockchain and rebranded to VeChain Thor. Its ticker symbol also changed from VEN to VET.

VeChain has a strong core development team and more than 150 employees around the world. Its CEO, Sunny Lu, has a solid background in IT and Information Security across luxury retail brands. He is a former CIO of Louis Vuitton China.

That’s why their main focus, in the beginning, was the luxury goods industry, but VeChain has also proven itself as a successful blockchain implementation in other industries like wine, agriculture, automobile, liquor.
