alt textGoing a bit down memory lane, I published my previous article on project VINchain which can be accessed via this https://steemit.com/automobile/@phillip-olamide/vinchain-car-repository-to-revolutionalize-the-used-vehicle-industry
 I have dug deeper into the project and found more benefits and more information about the platform which would be explained expressly.
Like I previously stated, VINchain is a car repository which simply implies that it would contain information such as current and past owners, accident history, odometer readings and much more pertaining to a vehicle which would be accessible by a 17 digit code known as the vehicle identification number(VIN). With this number containing these vital information(which would be constantly audited to test for its legitimacy and veracity) it can be easily discerned that the cloak that has consumed the used car market would be removed and the Used car market would be more transparent, secure and legal.
Lets dive fully into the advantages of the platform:

First of it will employ the use of blockchain which is factually known to be indisputable, immutable, tamper proof and resilient to hack and attack. Sources providing the vehicle history would enjoy a form of rewarding system to ensure the information they offer would be very credible.
Secondly and more importantly, the features of the platform which are:
The Mobile platform for the every day user which will enable them get maintenance, refueling, repairs, washing and insurance services. Another exciting benefit of the platform is earning the platform’s VIN tokens and discounts being changed for the VIN tokens. Analyzing of users driving patterns to create suggestions of more efficient driving styles is very possible with the mobile app.
The web platform specialized for manufacturers, insurance companies, car dealers and other organizations although it is equally accessible by users but is basically to increase sales, reduce costs and improve the efficiency of data processing, analyzing them and compiling reports on the operation of the vehicle.
Vinchain will possess installable hardware devices that can be used to collect and deliver data real time to the VINchain database. This can also aid monitoring the state of the vehicle to give driving assurance.
VINchain has an open API that permits integration of vehicle data on other platforms.
