According to Deloitte's 2018 Global Blockchain Survey, which included 1053 executives from 7 territories, 95% stated their company plans to invest in blockchain tech this year.
"To reduce the technical threshold for enterprises to adopt blockchain technology, VeChain officially launched VeChain ToolChain, the revolutionary one-stop BaaS platform developed upon the VeChainThor public blockchain, was launched in April 2019. The solution comes with a variety of general-purpose interfaces, with which anyone, even those without any tech background, can build their own blockchain-based solutions to suit their needs," Kevin Feng, COO of VeChain, said during his speech in WBS.
