In a recent interview, Sunny Lu, CEO and founder of VeChain, a blockchain platform designed to help businesses manage their supply chains, shed light on how VeChain’s technology is revolutionizing industries like luxury goods, food safety, and sustainability.

Lu emphasizes bridging the gap between traditional business practices and the power of blockchain. Unlike some networks, VeChain prioritizes features that enhance usability and scalability, making it ideal for real-world business adoption. This approach is already impacting sectors like luxury goods and food safety.

VeChain’s journey began by tackling a major concern in the luxury market: counterfeiting. Their initial project involved tracking and verifying the authenticity of Louis Vuitton handbags. This showcased how blockchain can create a secure and transparent record of a product’s origin, journey, and after-sales service.

But VeChain’s reach extends beyond luxury goods. The platform offers comprehensive services for tracking food products throughout the supply chain. “We kind of started from that single prototype solution and began iterating, now covering multiple sections, for example, the high-profile case like food safety for Walmart,” explained Lu. This essentially means that any food data can be provided on the platform.

The benefit for consumers lies in increased transparency. They can verify the origin and quality of their food purchases. However, VeChain goes beyond just tracking and verification.

Recently, VeChain launched the VeBetter DAO mainnet, a platform aiming to be the foundation for a cross-sector sustainability dApp (decentralized application) ecosystem within Web3. This ecosystem will engage, incentivize, and reward user activity. The platform seeks to onboard both businesses and individuals who are passionate about meaningful causes and cutting-edge dApps.

“You can consider it as a marketplace that incentivizes different types of what we call X2 applications,” stated Lu. These X2 applications are essentially decentralized applications designed to create scenarios where everyday users can make positive choices and contribute to a collective positive impact.

Sustainability, encompassing environmental, social, and economic aspects, is a global priority. VeChain’s platform optimizes logistics and supply chain management, leading to greater efficiency and a reduced environmental footprint. By streamlining transportation, optimizing storage, and minimizing waste, VeChain contributes to building a more sustainable future.

Looking ahead, VeChain’s innovative approach positions it as a major player in transforming various industries. As Sunny Lu envisioned, VeChain has the potential to move beyond simple record-keeping and empower businesses and consumers to make a positive impact.

It’s important to note that while VeChain continues to make strides, the price of its cryptocurrency, VET, was trading at $0.02341 at press time, reflecting a 7.57% decrease in the last 24 hours.
