The dots guys!! They’re being connected!!
Here’s an excerpt from this Yahoo Finance article on today’s PwC/VeChain announcement:
The formation of a strategic partnership between PwC and VeChain, and the acquisition of ownership interest in VeChain of PwC signifies the company’s willingness to utilize public blockchain protocols and networks that are already widely adopted by the blockchain sector, rather than build its own blockchain technology and permissioned ledger.
And this one from an article published last week, talking about Alibaba’s platform to prevent food fraud:
The new pilot program will use the blockchain-based Food Trust Framework to track international shipments to China from Australian healthcare supply firm Blackmores and New Zealand dairy product maker Fonterra via Alibaba’s T-Mall e-commerce arm, according to a ZDNet report Friday.
The news follows the platform’s year-long technological development since Alibaba Australia first announced a partnership with PwC and Blackmores in March 2017 to develop the system to counter the spread of counterfeit products.
A TWELVE YEAR OLD COULD CONNECT THESE DOTS GUYS C’MON
Look at this quote from Raymund Chao, PwC Asia Pacific and Greater China Chairman (pictured in the original post of this thread with VeChain CEO Sunny Lu):
“We are glad to establish a deeper relationship with VeChain, which aims to build a trusted and distributed business ecosystem to help address long-standing challenges in supply chain management, food trust and anti-counterfeiting areas. VeChain’s mission aligns with PwC’s purpose of solving important problems and building trust in society,”
… food trust…
If this adds up the way I think it does, then basically EVERY blockchain-related thing PwC has touched in the last few years COULD (likely does, imo) involve Vechain in SOME capacity. Don’t believe it? Check out this Linkedin post from a PwC fintech and cybersecurity partner (who also happens to be on the Vechain steering committee)
After so many projects and collaborations…
If you go back and look at all the blockchain-related ventures PwC’s had its hands in over the last couple years (Amazon AWS, Walmart, the Chinese food safety consortium, IBM, Hyperledger, Alibaba like 3 different times, a few others I’m not thinking of atm) then my original prediction starts to make A LOT more sense… Just saying…
