The methodology applied by TÜV Saarland Shanghai included conducting strict audits around blockchain-based services as provided by VeChain, assessing elements such as technical scalability, network reliability and practicality of application. In response to the strict requirements set forth by the body, VeChain had to demonstrate its regulatory abidance across jurisdictions and provide detailed reporting, sharing insights about blockchain services, industrial blockchain applications, technical documents, business development plans, delivery of technological services, acceptance records and more.
With technical strength and market-proven blockchain use cases, VeChain has been certified as the first and only approved 5-Star Blockchain Service Provider under TÜV Saarland’s notation.
VeChain Recognition Leads To Increased Competitive Advantage
This certification uniquely positions VeChain’s blockchain technology in the enterprise and business world. In an industry where enterprises are hesitant to adopt emergent technology and look to leaders in the space to work with, this certification helps leapfrog competitors, cementing a tangible advantage when compared to other blockchain platforms. Ultimately, as we gather more recognition and trust, the VeChain ecosystem will flourish even further, leading to greater usage, more deeply ingrained partnerships and directly contributing to value creation within the blockchain ecosystem.
Thorsten Greiner, Managing Director of TÜV Saarland, said: “TÜV Saarland has an extremely professional certification team, with not only a deep understanding of blockchain technology, but also rich field experience. TÜV Saarland’s certification standard aims to set an industry-level reference benchmark and help blockchain service providers improve their competitiveness in the international market. As the first company to receive the five-star service certification, VeChain has demonstrated its advantages and has the potential to bridge more large-scale enterprise digital systems or government projects.”
Sunny Lu, co-founder and CEO of VeChain, said, “Our strategic partners, PwC and DNV GL, have been offering professional compliance guidance for us to iterate blockchain technology and develop industrial blockchain applications for enterprise users. We are honored to be granted this certificate, and will be looking for ways to further improve our services in the business world.
