The 2024 theme for the Congress is all about powering connectivity. Interestingly, Snowflake is one of the sponsors. The Global Industry Leader at Snowflake Phil Kippen spoke about the MWC2024:
The industry is at an inflection point where platforms and gen AI technology meet to truly transform telecom operations and rapidly deliver solutions to real-world problems. We’re at the heart of it. My team and I are looking forward to demonstrating the value Snowflake brings to leading telecom companies today and the innovative solutions and partnerships we have to propel the industry into a resilient and sustainable future.
VeChain has over the past couple of years emerged as one of the fastest-growing blockchain projects with several real-world use cases cutting across different fields. In November 2023, it secured a US patent to boost its commitment to pioneering solutions. It also announced a strategic collaboration with Walmart China, a move that led to the launch of 23 product lines.
Walmart’s early forays into blockchain traceability date back to 2018, when they successfully traced over 25 diverse products, spanning categories such as mangoes, leafy greens, and dairy products, back to their origins. By 2019, the retail giant leveraged blockchain to augment traceability throughout its supply chain, laying the foundation for more transparent and efficient operations.
The price of VET has reacted strongly to this announcement, surging by 4.7% in the last 24 hours, and 13% in the last seven days. With a bullish sentiment and a market cap of $2,288,302,433, VET is currently trading at $0.03144.
