The world of cryptocurrencies is envisioned to be led by the only giant crypto, Bitcoin but smart traders and investors support altcoins because they know its untapped potential. Bitcoin was introduced as ‘The digital asset’ which is decentralized with a purpose to replace the traditional currency and revolutionize centralized banking & financial sectors. But bitcoin’s platform still hasn’t achieved its goal. Its fees are still very high, and it can handle merely 7 transactions per second. It’s exciting to observe the success of other blockchain projects which are based on a nearly-perfected Bitcoin technology such as VeChain. Its one of the best performing crypto of 2018 till now and offers some serious improvements on Bitcoin tech.

What Makes VeChain Better?

Unlike bitcoin and other blockchain based projects, VeChain has positioned itself neatly in the market doing what it does best and perfecting itself with time. It can handle supply chain management process and ensure that every customer is fully aware of the product’s background history, quality, and credibility. The VeChain platform was recently all over the news due to their rebranding to VeChain Thor. As VeChain Thor, it’ll function as a blockchain-as-a-service and employ blockchain to keep a track of product data in order to provide users with completely scalable and credible experience. VeChain thor will continue to function as an Ethereum-like decentralized App as well as an ICO network. It has already begun hosting various platforms from various commercial sectors such as retail, agriculture, food and luxury items.

Recent Achievements

Recently VeChain announced forming an alliance called ‘Shanghai Wine and Liquor Blockchain Alliance’ along with several other government bureaus and enterprises under the guidance of Municipal commission of commerce and Shanghai liquor monopoly administration. The purpose of this alliance is to improve Shanghai’s liquor industry with enhanced logistics, management, quality, and safety systemization and create a distinguished and flawless wine industry in 2020. This alliance aims to present Shanghai as the leading innovator and the center of blockchain tech and liquor traceability in all of China. Including blockchain technology in such a high-level government-based alliance gives a positive indication and leaves an even positive effect on VEN markets.

3rd Quarterly VeChain Foundation Financial Executive Report

Before entering the VeChain Thor mainnet, the VeChain foundation released their 3rd quarterly financial executive report which extends from February to April. The report made did not consider the coin split as it was finished before releasing Thor mainnet and declared that as of now the VeChain foundation is holding 39% of the total supply while the remaining 61% is currently in circulation. VeChain’s financial executive report indicates their commitment to transparency between the foundation and its dedicated community. The report included detailed information regarding enterprise investors who have invested while indicating the fact that VeChain is slowly becoming influential in the public industry. The report states that around 2.3 million VeChain tokens have been acquired by their strategic partners and an approximate of 9.5 million tokens were paid out as rewards to the VeChain team, all of which their team has locked for 2 years. The entire report is actually a record of recent VeChain achievements and events where the foundation has spent VET. In the said report, the team has mentioned their expansion of markets to South Korea as well as Japan.

Current Market Position

The present devastating situation of bitcoin has shaken each and every cryptocurrency. With BTC trading below $6800, traders and crypto enthusiasts are suffering throughout the markets. VeChain like all other top blockchain projects is presently facing a downward trend which has brought it down to $3.36 per VEN. The price seems to dip more at the rate of 10.51%. It is currently ranked as the 16th largest crypto which has a total market capitalization of $1.84 billion according to the data on CoinMarketCap at the time of writing. Almost $112 million worth of VEN has exchanged hands within the past 24 hours even at a hard time like this.

Conclusion

VeChain’s growth potential cannot be ignored because of the real-world use-case that makes it a solid and smart investment. It’s on the brink of major adoption because it offers smart contracts, ICOs, dApps, data transfer, IoT, logistics, and supply chain. VeChain has already begun providing services with the help of its recent partnerships whereas Bitcoin hasn’t given even the market even the faintest clue regarding its improvement or major adoption. Even though lightning network will soon appear on bitcoin, it’s hard to tell whether it would improve BTC’s commercial throughput and transaction speed. There’s no denying that Bitcoin is still the reigning king of all crypto but VeChain has proved its worth in the past few days. It’s definitely one of the coins which you might want to keep under your radar.

3 Cryptocurrencies Most Likely to Follow Bitcoin’s Performance

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…

4 Reasons Why the New Bitcoin Rally Is Unlikely to Stop Now

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…

The crypto market’s recovery progresses further, and at a rapid pace, at that. Bitcoin has just surpassed the $8,000 mark, which is the first time its price has been that high since July of last year. In addition, the entire crypto market is making billions within hours.

Bitcoin (BTC) sees another serious surge

In the past 24 hours, the total crypto market cap has gone up by around $24 billion. Meanwhile, BTC price has grown by $1,000 within the same period, as the largest coin traded barely above $7,000 on early Monday. At the time of writing, the coin’s price sits at $8.014.31, with a 14% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the BTC market cap has gone up to $141.85 billion, and even the coin’s trading volume surged to over $31 billion.

While many are wondering whether this is a return to the massive heights seen back in 2017 or only a temporary surge which will soon see a correction — no signs of an upcoming decline have been noticed as of yet. In fact, new heights were made and then exceeded multiple times in the past week, with a massive 33% gain during that time. And, with Bitcoin’s dominance at 60%, many are expecting that massive altcoin surges are to be expected as well.

The growth of altcoins can already be seen, as Bitcoin
