The online platform for buying and selling luxury products Reebonz has made a partnership with the global enterprise-level public blockchain platform VeChain in order to create a blockchain technology-based end-to-end provenance for their luxury products. The plan of the partnership is to develop a digital tag with the aim of developing an upstream and downstream supply chain assurance. Supply chain planning, product management, and product traceability can be allowed through the supply chain assurance. They have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”).
