The team at VeChain notes that as we bid goodbye to 2022 and begin settling in for winter (well, half of the world, anyway), what better way to warm our souls than to tap into the “collective wit” and “creativity” of the “VeFam” with a VeChain Anthem contest.
As noted in a blog post, “when times are tough, there’s nothing like a good tune to lift your spirits. 2022 has been tough for all of us – impactful global events seem to have unfolded one after another.” However, VeFam has “proven itself resilient time after time.” With 2023 around the corner, the team wanted “to take the opportunity to start the year on a high, and celebrate the inevitable return of better days.”
The winning Anthem will be VeChain‘s “soundtrack” of 2023 — a year they plan to “unveil many new exciting developments, both for VeChain and [their] community, while kicking off the digital-sustainable revolution on the mighty VeChainThor blockchain.”
The VeChain Anthem — VeFam’s Soundtrack of 2023

- VeFam, Buidl, blockchain
- Be any genre

The Contest will “run from 18th December 2022 to 18th January 2023.” All submissions MUST be “complete and uploaded by 18 Jan 2023, 23:59 UTC+0.”
Once you’ve read, understood and created your masterpieces, use this Typeform to formally submit your entry and “announce your intent to enter the competition.”
Once the submission deadline has passed, the VeChain Foundation team will “pick their top 10 entries, putting them to community vote on the VeVote platform.”
As a bonus, they’ll also be “on the lookout for the video with the best production value — the one with those blockbuster feels.” This individual will win “Best Production Award” and gain the chance to work with them on future projects.
Voting is open to all eligible stakeholders — individuals who “hold economic nodes, x-nodes or authority nodes.” More details on the community voting process “will be announced in due course, as a refresher of the process.”
Of course, no competition would be complete “without prizes.” For the VeChain Anthem contest, they’re offering $50,000 in VeUSD, their native USD stablecoin, to 11 winners;
As covered, the VeChain Foundation, “headquartered in San Marino, Europe, is the non-profit organisation behind the development of VeChainThor, a smart contract platform spearheading the real world adoption of blockchain technology.”
By leveraging the capabilities of ‘trustless’ data (information without intermediaries), smart contracts and IoT technologies, VeChainThor has “delivered solutions in a wide array of fields, and now turns its attention to arguably the greatest challenge of all — building technologies and ecosystems to drive true sustainability at global scale.”
