Furthermore, the prestigious award from the Shanghai government will also grant VeChain a special tax status, thus allowing the company to dedicate more resources toward building significant projects. 

This is not the first time VeChain will be bagging an award of excellence from the Chinese government. 

In 2020, VeChain was declared the winner of China’s Innovative Green Energy award. 

VeChain’s Expansion and Adoption

The development comes a month after VeChain announced the opening of a new European headquarters to further offer its services to its growing clients. 

VeChain’s efficient blockchain project has resulted in a number of partnerships between the company and top brands, as well as government organizations. 

The company’s technology is mostly adopted to trace various goods using blockchain tech. 

Earlier this month, VeChain announced that it was commissioned to build a government traceability platform to facilitate the easy tracking of agricultural products like rice and millet, in China and Mongolia. 

As reported last year, VeChain partnered with China’s promising olive oil producer, the Olive Times, in a deal that requires the blockchain company to use its Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform to track the distribution of olive oil to Chinese customers

In another development, VeChain announced that its first-ever stablecoin, dubbed VeUSD, will soon go live on the VeChain mainnet, which will usher in a new phase of VeChainThor, the public blockchain of the network. 

Meanwhile, VeChain collaborated with payment firm Simplex to enable its enthusiasts to buy the VET cryptocurrency using their Visa and Mastercard.
