Global Coin Report has been keeping an eye out on VeChain (VET) and things look like they are looking up for the coin that just migrated to its own blockchain. The Mainnet is live and running giving us one reason to HODL VET for the foreseeable future. The VeChain Thor (VET) platform has been slated as being the best of the best in the crypto-verse. Not many blockchain projects make it to the Mainnet phase and actually release an actual blockchain platform. But VET had all the signs of a good project from the get-go.

There are official reports of the Chinese Government partnering with the project. In particular, the government of the Gui’an New Area of China. As part of the plan, VeChain will implement blockchain technology to improve government operations for the development of a smart city in Gui’an. If plans work out at Gui’an, then it is all systems go for possible VET adoption in other areas in China thus giving us a second reason to HODL VET.

In addition to the partnership with the government of Gui’an, VET was part of a Pricewaterhouse Cooper incubation program. The PwC company has constantly backed the project with its arms of business in China and Singapore. Through PwC, VET will have access to expert advice to enhance the project’s growth in the greater South East Asia region.

VET has also partnered with DNV GL, a global quality assurance and risk management company. Another VET partner is Kuehne and Nagel which is a Supply Chain and Logistics company. Other partners include BitOcean, Fanghuwang and other firms in the industries of real estate, art, automobiles, tobacco, just to name a few.

The third reason to hold VET is the VTHO distribution that will happen on a daily basis. Two prominent exchanges will be supporting the distribution of the VTHO: Binance and Gate.io. The frequency of each is monthly and weekly respectively. The exact formula for calculating VTHO can be found on page 38 of the VeChain whitepaper. Any additional tokens for owning VET is a good deal as more and more exchanges pledge their support for the VTHO distribution.

The fourth and final reason to HODL VET is that the crypto-markets are ripe for another Bull run with Bitcoin (BTC) leading the pack as usual. VET is currently trading at $1.99 and at its lowest levels this year. This means that HODLers have a chance to get some more VET before the BTC Bull run starts as we head into the holiday season that starts in November. The Bull run will also be fueled by news of more institutional investors getting into crypto investing.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
