The AWS Beijing Summit, a grand gathering for the Chinese cloud computing community hosted by AWS, was held on Wednesday. VeChain attended the Summit as a technology partner of AWS in the blockchain industry and a member of AWS Partner Network (APN).
The Summit brought together over 200 APN Partners and over 150 guest speakers, such as the experts from IBM, Xiaomi, and Deloitte, to have in-depth discussions on the best practices of cutting edge cloud technology. More than 15,500 attendees from across China attended the Summit.
The cooperation between VeChain and AWS kick-started this year. In February 2019, VeChain announced the launch of an integrated solution into the AWS Cloud platform to enable one-click deployment of VeChainThor Blockchain Nodes upon VeChainThor Blockchain.
Since then, VeChain has received strong support from AWS in terms of operations, technology development, and marketing. So far, there’re over 20 enterprise projects running on the ToolChain deployed on AWS, such as BMW, Latitude 28 and SBTG. In addition to that, the Partner Version of VeChain ToolChain is ready to be deployed on AWS. With the introduction, partners of VeChain are allowed to set up their own ToolChain rapidly, further accelerating the pace of VeChainThor Blockchain adoption.

Mr. Gu Jianliang, Chief Technology Officer at VeChain, attended the Summit as a keynote speaker. In his speech, Mr. Gu introduced VeChain ToolChain, a revolutionary one-stop Blockchain-as-a-Service solution. ToolChain integrates the strengths of NFC/RFID chips, IoT sensors, and mobile devices to lower the threshold for adopting blockchain technology. The solution comes with a variety of general-purpose interfaces, with which anyone, even those without any tech background, can build their own blockchain-based solutions for their businesses.
Thanks to the joint efforts made by VeChain and its partners, VeChain ToolChain-powered solutions, such as the Digital Carbon Ecosystem, Liquefied Natural Gas Solution and Consumer Confidence Index have been successfully integrated into various industries and sectors including FMCG, Food and Beverage,
Wine, Luxury, Automobile, Healthcare, and more. Through the application of the above-mentioned solutions, the participating enterprises streamlined their business workflow and enjoyed greater transparency, enhanced security, and reinforced traceability. The adoption of blockchain technology created real value for the real economy.
The partnership between the two parties proved to be a win-win for both. As Mr. Gu said: “On the one hand, it allows enterprises to deploy quick, secure, and compliant blockchain applications, which is essential to promote the mass adoption of blockchain technology.
Other than that, the blockchain technology provided by VeChain can be leveraged to create value for AWS’s clients. More importantly, the interaction and exchange between the VeChainThor ecosystem and that of AWS are giving rise to new business models and application scenarios, which brings opportunities for the two.”
