As the one year anniversary of the VeChainThor Blockchain launch rapidly approaches, we wanted to update the community on the progress of some of the unsung heroes in our ecosystem. Every partner and stakeholder in our ecosystem is vital to the success of the entire blockchain ecosystem and it is our intention, pride and honour to shine a light on our partners and stakeholders who have been steadily building and consuming value built on top of the VeChainThor blockchain.
To provide a spotlight for these vital partners, we’ve developed this series as a Q&A, interview type format. Our partners and stakeholders, in their own words, will share and talk about their experiences using and building on top of the VeChainThor Blockchain as well as the impact, struggles, and value added to their own business ecosystem when implementing this technology within their business model. We start this series with iTaotaoke.
As one of our initial partners, iTaotaoke has successfully implemented and made blockchain technology valuable in the area of copyrighting digital content. iTaotaoke’s innovative platform not only offers an open platform where both self-publishers and content providers can build their knowledge sharing workshops while monetizing their content, they are also, at the same time, able to protect and secure the rights of their intellectual property of which what makes them valuable — their culmination of wisdom, knowledge, and experience. Get a firsthand view of the iTaotaoke and VeChain partnership here.
“VeChain is a really friendly public blockchain platform. It provides us a complete and mature blockchain solution and diverse ecosystem. So far, there are over 3,000 original content creators on the iTaoTaoKe platform. These content creators have created and published over 30,000 articles. We have also gained over 70,000 subscriptions and over 160,000 views and the number is increasing at a significant speed. As a young company, we approximately consume 2.8M VTHO per month and I strongly believe that the demands of acquiring and using VTHO for us at iTaotaoke will increase quickly while more and more digital content creators begin to join the platform. We hope to invoke the VeChainThor Blockchain’s full potential to become a shield of copyrights for all the craftsmen of knowledge. ”
