The certification of smart contracts covers various aspects including the identity of the owner, the legality of the purpose, and the security of the source code.At the event, the carbon bank solution was made public to raise awareness that VeChain is building solutions alongside DNV GL that will monitor, analyze, and reduce the carbon footprint.

It was also mentioned that Japanese FSA certified partner BitOcean would be the first ICO on VeChainThor.Luca Crisciotti left with words of encouragement of VeChain “We are not talking about pilot projects, we are talking about solutions that are working for real cases.” Luca went on to say:“DNV GL is a company with over 150 years of history. And unfortunately, this is something we can not share, because you [VeChain] were only born a few months ago. But we do have something in common, and it’s a bright future. So thank you Sunny for the partnership and this amazing event.”
