VeChain exhibited notable developments in 2023
This latest patent underscores VeChain’s strengths in this regard and may help expand its accessibility to new markets while reinforcing growth in existing regions.
It remains unclear how VeChain will commercialize the patented blockchain technology. However, with rapidly growing interest in enterprise blockchain, finding the right partner to showcase these capabilities may prove straightforward.
VeChain could also look to integrate the patent with existing collaborations. The news comes as the team continues rolling out upgrades in 2023. Among these upgrades is a new whitepaper in March unveiling the VET 3.0 protocol.
While this is a positive development, it remains to be seen how significantly the patent will impact VeChain’s market standing. VET token value has surged by 5.2% over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
