To reiterate think of it this way. You have companies that have done business and transacted with a new tech (internet) for only two decades companies like Walmart had to hire and create a whole new department to deal with this new change in the way of doing business 2 decades that’s it....before that they did their business the same way for 50-150 years it was a huge change for many companies and it literally put some companies out of business who refused to change and adapt Walmart had the money to throw at this new internet thing ....now just 2 decades later they are needing to revamp their entire I.T. Departments all around the world , work with suppliers , wholesalers , logistics companies ect ect in order to stream line the way new data will flow and be managed that’s everything from the lady in Italy picking olives and entering the time date weight ect ect of the bags of olives she picks and entering on chain using tool chain , to the quality person inspecting and verifying it and entering that data to the logistics side saying the received it and it is exactly what they claim it to be entering that data ect ect all along the supply chain all of this has to take place for Walmart to have it s 100 product LINES (so several brands of olive oil as an example)to be “live” and on chain ....it is called “disruptive technology” for a reason it is literally changing the way things are done all over the world in many different industries this is such a new way of doing everything again by now utilizing the internet in a way never before even thought or heard of many companies like Walmart are scrambling ....Walmart might have tons of money and be able to make the switch easily but the suppliers are probly scrambling ....imagine being a small olive oil farm in Italy and your customer Walmart say I need you to start us8ng blockchain or we will need to move to someone who is willing too .....as an example these little farms and producers ect ect are probly going nuts trying to set this all up it’s going to hurt now but once it’s up n running it I’ll be like a well oiled machine (no pun intended lol) so be patient they are all learning blockchain right now they have no clue what is going on .
Idc that the wallet has been hacked. I would if it had been a vulnerability of the blockchain but it was human error. Shit happens. Perhaps it was an inside job. We don’t know. Ofcourse they’ve been busy with that. If the hack was the cause of whitepaper getting delayed, how big of an effort is it to announce it publicly?
Vechain has made more progress than any other blockchain project in this space. So moaning about a target not met by a third party client and blaming vechain is ignorant and unproductive. So who's the blind one and childish?

https://www.coindesk.com/ibm-blockchain-app-promotes-virtuous-cycle-for-sustainable-coffee "IBM said its new "Thank My Farmer" app will allow consumers to track their morning joe from the store where they buy it back to the farm where it was grown. Built in collaboration with traceability platform Farm Connect, which also uses IBM's blockchain, the app is expected to launch sometime this year. It was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas."
I tried looking up the Farmer Connect traceability platform mentioned in the article and it sounds alot like vechain. They also seem a little too small scale to leverage a custom blockchain solution of their own. https://farmerconnect.com/
No one is telling you to ignore it, but no one here knows the reason on the movements of their funds because this isn't the Safe Haven telegram, so let's be civilPerhaps when facts are established in their channel, and if it genuinely impacts the ecosystem, then it can be discussed here, but only if it's relevant. Right now it really doesn't have anything to do with VeChain. Even if their ICO is conducted on VeChainThor blockchain, it's still a different project, with their own staff, company and operations

After that the world will need a financial benchmark. The petro-dollar is dying as we speak, and other currencies are so far behind (and now have to compete with blockchain) and gold is still gold. Heavy metal. Vechain is connecting the one true global asset: supply. My money is here.
We are excited to provide the blockchain infrastructure for Reebonz.

I 100% believe in vechain, just am and have been having trouble justifying spending over 2k for an x node now. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough capital during the initial offering so I didn’t get one then. I’d love to have one but haven’t seen a true benefit yet so was just wondering if anyone knew of any updates possibly coming down the line, such as possible airdrops, etc from affiliates tokens on the blockchain, etc.
Blockchain architectures are usually broken down into three layers - network, protocol and application. So yes VeChain is a protocol as it has its own blockchain (80% rewrite of ethereum). As already mentioned it also has many applications written to make adoption easier as well
those are real announcements for real people at work, but processes take time. What we know is that some of world's biggest certification and business companies are by vechain side to deliver blockchain to the world. They move, the fly, they act. As of now, I really can't give a damn about the 900k wallets or walmart product lines. Companies are slow to implement new technology and vechain is no wizard.
We also have a competitor based in the US San Francisco whom has partnered with Neogen a 3.5 bill company, there are working on a blockchain tech for food traceability in the states and etc.. there name is Ripe Technology INC website Ripe.io
VeChain is happy to be a part of this partnership to provide blockchain technology for more enterprise users. Through both professional consulting and our top-of-the-line technology, we are confident to drive mass adoption of blockchain together with Cointelegraph Consulting.https://twitter.com/vechainofficial/status/1228310787514519555
VTHO settles smart contracts on VeChainThor blockchain. Trying to remember cost per DBET tx. Can ask in their telegram, buy VET (which generates VTHO) or buy VTHO. Can also try Vexchange if wish to swap small amounts of VIP-180 (VeChain-based tokens) for VTHO. Sounds like might not have enough.
