On 5th September, VeChain Foundation announced their partnership with BYD Auto Co., Ltd, a Chinese automobile manufacturer, and DNV GL, an international accredited registrar. The collaboration is an effort to solve the issue of carbon emission imbalances through the use of VeChain’s blockchain-based Proof of Concept protocol.

BYD had initially announced the completion of a carbon banking solution for car models by using VeChain’s automobile lifecycle management solution. According to VeChain, this is the first enterprise-level application that will shift “the data of millions of cars, buses, trains, and other vehicles onto a public blockchain platform.”

The carbon bank solution is mainly directed at rewarding vehicle operators for their vehicle’s driving performance and efforts in reducing the emission of carbon. In order to decrease the global carbon footprint, the solution will offer all the tools that are essential in the construction of a blockchain-based ecosystem.

According to the solution, each carbon footprint that is captured will be registered on the VeChainThor Blockchain and made accessible to customers who are keen on joining the initiative.

Shu Youxing, the President of BYD’s Automotive Intelligent Ecological Research Institute stated:

“This technology not only improves our current offering but allows us to create completely new markets. The unique aspects that VeChain provides will empower carbon monitoring development and sustainable ecosystems. This solution is a glimpse into what we think we can achieve through this partnership.”

Sunny Lu, the CEO, and Co-Founder of VeChain said:

 “As the global leader in green car manufacturing, BYD offered us the opportunity to pioneer real change. It takes innovators like BYD to make the world a cleaner place. Carbon banking will be a new reality for billions.”

According to recent reports, The People’s Insurance Company of China [PICC] has also partnered with VeChain to design the solution as they believe that it would create added value to their commerce.

George Kang, the CEO of DNV GL, Business Assurance Greater China Region stated:

“This solution represents the first major partner to utilize our Carbon Banking solution. BYD has gone to significant lengths to ensure our goal of making the world safer, smarter and greener.”

YD Automobile Company limited, centered in the Xi’an, Shaanxi Province of China was founded in 2003. It is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electric vehicles and batteries and also produces battery-electric buses. The organization has also taken a front seat in the production of high-efficiency automobiles, electric forklifts, energy storage, and solar power generation.

“Definitely huge by itself. As a sign of things to come, it is indeed likely to be the biggest partnership in crypto so far. Can’t actually be sure there will ever be a greater one. As with the vaccines, the idea is to go global. Therefore, mind-boggling.”

A Twitterati named ZyWorkMakeMone added:

 “So many great use cases. Awesome to actually see one implemented for real life use for a change. VeChainThor  will go Big, Congratulations.”

Another Twitter user named BTCgroover said:

“So VeChain announces two of the biggest confirmed blockchain use cases in the world to date and the price dumps? WTF crypto world! Clearly there is part of Market psychology that I’m just not getting.”

Tron [TRX], the eleventh largest coin on CoinMarketCap, has been crossing new milestones recently, with its block height and partnerships. Despite the coin performing rather poorly in a relatively bullish market, its adoption and the popularity of its DApps have made Tron lead the DApps market.

Tron’s popular proponent, Misha Lederman, shared with the community Tron’s recent achievement. Compared to Ethereum [ETH] and EOS, Tron registered a higher number of new users and active users. It noted 60k new users, while Ethereum reported 25K and EOS reported 9k. The active users on Tron’s DApps platform were 172k, followed by EOS with 170k and ETH with 54k.

Lederman in his tweet commented,

“#TRON growing fastest in terms of new users among Top 3 platforms:
New Users:
TRON 60K; #ETH 25K; #EOS 9K
Active Users:
TRON 172K; EOS 170K; ETH 54K”

He added that BitTorrent Speed’s launch in Q2 would provide Tron and BitTorrent users with BTT as an incentive for seeding, which might lead to a growth in the user base of TRX and BTT.
