Who is VMC?

VMC is a Dutch company, looking to disrupt the mobility sector through the use of blockchain technologies.

VMC envisions a future where payment processes and usage of varying types of transportation becomes a seamless process.

The company was founded in 2017, and has since successfully developed and implemented their working platform. VMC was able to make waves in 2018 through partnerships which saw the launch of the world’s first blockchain powered bus, and blockchain enabled electric scooters.

VMC intends to utilize a two-token ecosystem, in which they distribute a utility token alongside a security token.

What is the problem?

The mobility sector is inefficient and costly. Many of the commonly used transportation services are operationally segregated. Each will use different payment providers, which more often than not are unable to provide data-sets for usage towards service improvements.

A platform/service is needed that can unify the payment process between a variety of services. A commuter needs to be able to rent a bicycle to ride to a bus station, to drive to a subway, to take them across town – all through the use of a singular, cheap, and efficient platform. Furthermore, this platform needs to provide data-sets to the companies supporting it.

How will VMC Solve it?

In their continued bid to disrupt the sector, VMC has recently announced their intent to host a security token offering. The goal of this event is to raise up to a hard cap of €5 million. This funding is earmarked primarily for use towards the continued research and development required for growth of the company.

These security tokens are digital securities. This means that token holders are entitled to revenue shares garnered from platform usage. It is important to note that these tokens differ from their utility token.

The company’s utility tokens, VAI, function as a stable coin. These are used within the platform to facilitate the payment of services, negating the need for a payment processor. As this token is exclusively used to access services through the platform, VMC is able to gather detailed analytics. This data is valuable to service providers, as they are able to gain a better understanding of their customers, and structure accordingly around them.

The platform itself has been designed to appeal to anyone. It allows for travellers to not only plan their travel, but book and pay for it as well. Throughout this process, privacy is maintained, along with convenience through mobile ticketing.

Commentary

We reached out to the team at VMC to get a better understanding of the event. Jochem Verheul, CEO of VMC had the following to say.

Q: Why has VMC chosen to host an STO rather than traditional means of fundraising?

A: “With a stable token for the transactions/travel and a security token for the investment, we can capture the network effect in the security token, without harming the stability of the travel token. Distributing a share of revenue fits the principles of the blockchain industry.”

When asked about potential expansion, Jochem Verheul indicated that, “We have already opened an office in Singapore!”
