All buyers who conclude a purchase agreement for VeChain Thor blockchain should be surprised at first. The price is lower than on the company’s website. This is due to the fact that Jur offers a discount of 5% if the purchase is concluded via the VeChain Thor blockchain. Jur’s core objective is to build a completely automated system where every business relationship can be handled via the blockchain for all parties involved.
A secure and manipulation-free trading marketplace is to be created, which, through the use of smart contracts, offers protection against counterfeiting and 100% transparency. Jur will map all existing contracts on the blockchain, so that the purchase contract of a property is already stored on the blockchain and all further steps are documented on it. The company states:
We are building an entire set of Secure Commercial Agreements for purchasing properties and rental with a blockchain-based flow that manages the escrow and unlocks the money according to milestones achieved and audited by a third-party validator.
In case of litigation, a pre-alpha version of the court layer is used to provide a corruption-proof arbitration system for a sound and secure judiciary. Jur will drive the further development of these and other B2B solutions in 2020. VeChain provides the infrastructure on which all further business processes of both companies are based.
This use case could open the door to a new industry sector for VeChain, so that in the future more companies from the real estate sector could use VeChain solutions.
One company, many use cases
Recently VeChain has entered into a cooperation with the Anhui Tea Industry Association. The integration of VeChain Thor Blockchain is expected to enable tea producers and stakeholders to benefit from increased efficiency and productivity at all stages of the supply chain.
VeChain has been able to establish collaborations with industry heavyweights from many different industries and sectors. This distinguishes the project from a multitude of other cryptocurrencies, which only fulfil the function of an alternative means of payment.
The VeChain price shows a positive development within the last 24 hours of + 2.3%, to a price of 0.0058 USD.
