- VeChain was recognized by Early Metrics as one of the most valuable startups worldwide and praised for the potential of VeChain’s technology.
- The VeChain Foundation has published its new financial report, which shows in detail for which activities funds of the foundation have been invested.
VeChain states in a new article that Early Metrics, a world-renowned rating agency for start-ups and innovative SMEs, has recognized VeChain as one of the fastest growing start-ups. Early Metrics looks at the development and growth logic, market positioning, technical professionalism and operational implementation of all set objectives.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, VeChain has been able to advance the development of its proprietary technology. For some applications, such as E-HCert, COVID19 even acted as a catalyst and supporter for the acceptance of the app. VeChain has introduced the app in cooperation with I-Dante, which enables the storage and management of test results of COVID-19 RT-PCRs and rapid tests.
Another important partnership for the VeChain Foundation was the cooperation with Sarah Regensburger at the end of February to track products along the value chain. VeChain has also partnered with one of the world’s largest natural gas producers, Shanghai Gas, to build an “Energy-as-a-Service” ecosystem.
