- Public blockchains like VeChain can help the world achieve sustainability goals according to Demitris Neocleous.
- VeChain continues to gain credibility and swell in on-chain activity.
VeChain, a leading cryptocurrency and smart-contracts platform focused on sustainable supply chain management, remains confident that it can serve billions of people and companies around the world. The platform plan to do this through its public blockchain-based and open-source solutions.
Demitris Neocleous, head of ecosystem build at the VeChain Foundation, opines that VeChain and public blockchains in general are critical for the planet’s sustainability and digitization objectives as opposed to private blockchains.
To buttress his view, Neocleous gave an explanation that he describes as ‘pragmatic,’ comparing blockchain technology to various scenarios in which a boy can make the “statement of love” to a girl.
He compares private blockchains to a situation where a boy tells a girl that he loves her while he is alone with her or with a single friend as a witness or endorser. The boy can easily deny the statement later.
Public blockchains can be compared to when multiple random listeners are witnessing and endorsing the same statement. It would be impractical for the boy to deny the statement later as there are many witnesses.
“This is how blockchain works. It’s all about immutability, the security, and the integrity of data,” he added.
Instead of explaining Blockchain/NFTs/smart contracts/etc. in a techy way to the non-blockchain-crypto user, let's give approachable examples underpinning the technology. Let's make it palatable, fun, content- user-centric-driven. $VET #VeChain https://t.co/z9yhRVKHwH

VeChain’s selling points of simplicity and sustainability have seen it gaining massive traction in the supply chain industry which is its target market.
The network has now been recognized in a research article by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Recognition is for using non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain for the traceability and auctioning of shipping containers and cargo in the maritime industry.
In particular, the IEEE notes the strides VeChain has been making in using NFTs and blockchain to facilitate the tracking and tracing of pharmaceutical drugs from the production stage through delivery in the EU.
