    Written Statement
    As a member of the current VeChain Foundation Steering Committee, I would like to continue to steer and support the growth of the VeChain ecosystem and push Enterprise adoption as a way for promoting a meaningful diffusion of blockchain, and more in general DLTs, as a foundation technology.

    DLTs, and in particular VeChain, could facilitate the transition from the actual economic
    paradigm, based on linear economy, towards circular economy. New forms of values, new
    business models, will arise from this transition. Digital technologies such as DLTs, IOT and AI
    will be a key enabler for this transition. Focus will move from transactions, in which the value is exchanged between two entities, to interactions, which are part of a more complex value
    exchange among multiple players of an ecosystem. The components of Trust will have to
    change to enable this shift, and I believe that blockchain, and VeChain in particular, will play a key role in this transformation.

    I have decided not to ask for any external endorsement in this election round.

    Vision Statement
    VeChainThor, will be the leading Public PoA Blockchain platform in the future. As such, it will be the trust engine enabling any form of value exchange, between different kind of stakeholders, such as, an example, objects, administrations, corporations and humans. In this perspective VeChainThor will expand is role from transactions to interactions, the necessary step to create an ecosystem which will go beyond linear economy business model. VeChainThor will play a leading role in supporting transition from linear to circular economy and will promote the creation of business initiatives in line with this mission.
