Singapore-based blockchain supply chain management project VeChain has been blazing the trail these past few weeks, and now, it has sparked rumors of a potential partnership with one of the “Big Four” of accounting, Deloitte Inc.
VeChain to Partner with Deloitte?
According to April 9, 2019, tweet by the VeChain Foundation, Parminder Parmar, senior blockchain architect at Deloitte Digital & Blockchain Lab, has been added as the latest featured speaker to speak at VeChain Summit 2019.

Per the tweet, Parmar will “introduce the Deloitte Blockchain team and their use of the VeChainThor Blockchain on April 18 at Fort Mason, San Francisco.
Unsurprisingly, the tweet has already sparked rumors of a potential partnership between VeChain and accounting giant Deloitte.
Notably, another accounting giant, PwC has already endorsed the blockchain-based supply chain project multiple times and also owns a stake in the company. Further, there are also rumors that VeChain could also forge some sort of business alliance with corporate juggernaut KPMG.
The speculations pertaining to the KPMG deal surfaced on December 21, 2018, when Safe Haven, a blockchain platform built on top of the VeChainThor Network for property inheritance, asset distribution, and asset control, tweeted that they displayed their solutions to KPMG Cyprus.

With that said, it remains to be seen whether the VeChain-Deloitte connection translates to an official partnership in the future.
While the price of the VET token might not have budged as much so as to reflect the recent giant strides the VeChain Foundation has made in the blockchain world, it continues to remain one of the most underrated and hidden gems out there.
VeChain Continues to March Ahead
VeChain, which aims to revolutionize the global supply chain management industry as we know it, has bagged multiple partnerships and endorsements from a number of heavyweight companies in recent times.
As BR reported on April 4, 2019, the organization entered into a three-way partnership with DNV GL and Haier IoC to implement blockchain technology in the world’s first ever apparel lifecycle tracking platform.
Further, VeChain also scored a big one in China on April 1, 2019, when it was announced that the company had successfully registered with the Chinese National Cyberspace Administration as a blockchain-based service provider.
On a more recent note, VeChain entered into a partnership with three Norwegian firms to guarantee the freshness and traceability of foods exported to China and Northern Europe.
