After having a brief phase of rebound during the last several days, VeChain, along with the rest of the crypto market, is going down once again. As the market is turning sluggish after having a rebound period that lasted for about 4 days, the majority of currencies are getting back to trading in the red, that way losing on the total market cap. However, where there is bad news, there must be a light at the end of the tunnel, so VeChain still has something positive to share with the crypto community. This time, one of their partners, decided to invest in VeChain, supporting this start-up, non-profit, Singapore-based blockchain foundation.
DNV GL Invests in VeChain
Partnerships matter in the world of blockchain as well as listings, so as of the most recent occasion, one of the existing partnerships that VEN has acquired over the time, has paid off yesterday on Consensus 2018.
On this occasion, the CEO of DNV GL and the CEO of VeChain Foundation have given a live statement about the latest announcement that the CEO of Business Department at DNV GL had to share with the public.
With over 12.000 of employees at the moment and with over 19 billion dollars in revenue of the company, DNV GL represents registrar organization and global consulting firm based in Oslo, Norway.
The company was already on the list of partnerships acquired by VEN, but as of the latest circumstances, the CEO of DNV GL has announced that their company has decided to invest in VeChain blockchain foundation, that way supporting VeChain as a currency as well.
DNV GL has partnered with VeChain back in January 2018, specifically at the end of January, where their partnership was justified by the need of DNV GL for blockchain-based technology.
Since the company needed a cost-effective and highly functional way of tracking assets, they decided that the best way of enabling this feature would be to use the technological capabilities of VeChain.
The amount of the initial investment was not revealed to the public as both parties decided to keep the amount private. However, we know that DNV GL and VEN will surely continue with their cooperation in the future, as stated by the CEO of VeChain.
Furthermore, probably due to the latest investment that was placed in VEN, DNV GL is planning on using Authority Masternodes, that way becoming the first Authority Masternode holder in form of the program 101 Authority Masternodes as hosted on the VeChain blockchain.
On the question about the reason behind the investment, the CEO of DNV GL stated that the initial investment is only one of a few planned investments that should be placed in the following period. The reason behind these planned investments is to make VeChain more efficient in oppose to other blockchain networks, as stated by the CEO of DNV GL.
Further on their partnership, both CEOs added that they are planning on building a supply chain that will become a part of DNV GL services. The supply chain should be built with VEN technology.
Moreover, the two CEOs have added that they are also planning on creating much safer and faster environment out of VEN blockchain platform.
As the ultimate product, DNV GL’s own CEO, Crisciotti, claims that their goal is to provide their customers with full commitment while being able to track their products and make sure that all products are able to reach their customers.
At the end of his statement, Crisciotti added that they need a fast and safe blockchain environment in order to do so, and he believes that VeChain has what it takes to make a functional supply chain possible.
