VeChain Rolls Out Unique Solution for Luxury Goods Industry

VeChain recently did what it does best in the crypto industry by onboarding a unique solution for the luxury goods industry.

As earlier reported by Times Tabloid, VeChain onboarded a solution for luxury goods theft and counterfeit issues in the primary and secondary markets.

According to the update, VeChain has embedded its proprietary chipset within luxury products, which gives the products a unique identification (ID) on the VeChain Thor blockchain.

This gives brands the ability to track their products and also upload key data to the VeChain network. Additionally, this embedded chipset allows companies to monitor their sales channels in real-time, which in turn prevents illegal overstock trading.

The innovation is specifically designed to directly wage war against counterfeit products in the luxury goods industry, by allowing customers to check the authenticity of products, using a mobile phone application.
