VeChain (VET) deploys update and fixes key issues

  • Version 1.4.0 of blockchain VeChainThor adds multiple components to improve performance.
  • VeChainThor update allows synchronization in seconds with blockchain using mobile devices.
  • Hospital Aretaeio in Cyprus used a VeChain-based solution to issue Pfizer and BioNtech vaccine certificates.

VeChain has made a maintenance upgrade to the blockchain VeChainThor. VeChain Dev monitor has indicated via Twitter that version 1.4.0 will offer better performance and urged to implement the update as soon as possible. The monitor wrote:

VeChain Thor has released the v1.4.0 upgrade. This release improves bloom filter and fixed issues when building on ARM64 architecture (wink Apple Silicon wink).

Specifically, according to VeChain’s website in GitHub two components were updated: in bn256 a bug in building on the ARM64 architecture was fixed and continues the integration of the system configuration. A subscription/beat2 API was added to support variations in bloom filter length.

VeChain CTO Peter Zhou shared the release of version 1.4.0 of the blockchain on his Twitter account. Zhou was surprised by the community’s response and what the new version of VeChain can achieve. One user showed a video in which he synchronized his Samsung S10 phone to compile and synchronize the network in a few seconds.

The creator and co-owner of the Pine Apple Republic website, Mitch Oates, asked Zhou what the implications of the upgrade are. Zhou responded that it is possible to “run a Thor node on a mobile”.

VeChain’s solution used to combat COVID-19

On the other hand, the VeChain Foundation revealed that the Aretaeio Hospital in Cyprus is using the E-HCert vaccine certification application for COVID-19 from Pfizer and BioNtech. Based on the VeChainThor, the application allows transparent, verifiable, and secured records to be maintained by this blockchain.

Aretaeio Hospital reported that the VeChain-based application will be available in late January and will allow the public to issue certificates that can be used to prove an individual has the Pfizer vaccine.

As reported by CNF, VeChain launched its application to in June 2020. Since then, it has been adopted by several entities in Cyprus including Aretaeio Hospital and Larnaca International Airport, one of the largest in the country. In December alone, the E-HCert application certified that 8,000 people had been tested for the disease in order to enter the airport.

At the Hospital, E-HCert has also been used to expedite the process of delivering laboratory tests and certifying that employees have received the Pfizer-BionTtech vaccine. Soon, this healthcare personnel will receive a digital certificate on their cell phones.
