Since the launch of VeChainThor in early 2017, the VeChain Foundation has always placed our community at the forefront of our strategic plans. We are proud to have gathered such an amazing global community, with great appreciation and understanding of VeChain’s vision and strategy. Our treasured community has been a huge boon to our development, and deserves more opportunities to be rewarded.

As a display of our gratitude, back in January 2020, we celebrated the 2nd Year Anniversary of the VeChainThor Mainnet with a series of events, culminating in the first VeChain Community Video Contest. The top 5 winners were selected through the VeVote platform and shared a guaranteed prize pool worth $42,000 at the time.

This year, we are increasing the prize pool even further!

By creating a video about VeChain and participating in this year’s contest, you will have the chance to be rewarded from a total prize pool of $50,000! (Paid in VET tokens).

Officially launching the VeChain Community Video Contest 2021!

We encourage you to exercise your creative thinking and skills to create an informative and high-quality video. Please see below for additional guidance:

  • The ideal video length is between 2–10 mins
  • Any language is welcome, but closed captions must be enabled and be in English
  • Content must be G-rated (references to pornographic, racist, illegal, profanity, drugs, political, or otherwise inappropriate videos will automatically disqualify your video from the competition)
  • Videos not related to VeChain will be automatically disqualified
  • Content must conform to all copyright laws. Only use images and materials that you own, have purchased the copyright for, or conforms to fair use principles

Video Content

The theme of this year’s video contest is to produce content related to why VeChain is the best public blockchain on the market.

VeChain has a wealth of unique, advanced technical features that set it far apart from other public blockchains. We want your help in developing content that showcases these advanced features, showcasing exactly why VeChain is so far ahead of the market on the path to mass adoption. The best entrants will win cash prizes!

As examples, please see the following topics (you may focus on any combination of the below, or choose your own and get creative).

  • VeChain’s position in public blockchain landscape
  • How VeChain’s technical features far exceed the competition
  • VeChain ToolChain™’s 3-layer business model
  • A brief summary of what is PoA consensus / why PoA is for enterprise mass adoption
  • How VeChain ToolChain™ enable partners such as DNV and PwC to implement VeChain-powered solutions for their own clients
  • VeChain in real business scenarios including: Food industry, sustainability, anti-COVID19 etc
  • Why you should make your dApp and project on VeChainThor
  • VeChain’s eNFT ecosystem and its potential
  • VeChain tokenomics explanation how it relates to VeChain’s growth (VET/VTHO token model, governance model, voting, X nodes, Economic Nodes)
  • How everything above ties together to make VeChain the best public blockchain platform for both enterprise adoption and developers to build their projects and dApps

The key factor is that the video clearly makes the case that VeChainThor is the best public blockchain in the market, detailing how and why.
