VeChain (VET) and All the Reasons to HODL

Published

on

VeChain

VeChain has had a hard time recovering from the market dip that went on for more than eight weeks. To reward HODLers, VeChain team decided to the lockup of a certain amount of VET, which became a part of a project called X Series Node Program. Now when VET is slowly being recovered from the recent market dip as well as from the selloff that took place a couple of days ago, we are interested in listing all the reasons to HODL onto your VET units. In addition to this, we will also be analyzing whether VeChain is ready for mass adoption based on its recent performance, given the fact that mass adoption for cryptos is the next main objective of all major digital assets.

VeChain Announced X Series Node Program

X Node series was announced back in March when VeChain officially announced via Twitter and Medium that they are starting a new project with a fresh lockup of 50 million VET units, claiming that the new project also has a deadline for completion.

As it is already the case for quite some time now, VeChain has launched its own native token, called VeThor Token (VET). VET tokens are THE units you should be interested in, in case you would like to take advantage of the new X Node project.

Talking about the details on the new project, the team has stated that everyone interested in participating will need to lock up their economic nodes, with a great chance of performing the node lockup in advance and before the start of the initial project.

The team has also announced that there will be an already set requirement regarding the number of tokens each holder is holding, which means that all interested holders are only set to become eligible for this program in case they have a mini9mal amount of 6000 VET.

All interested holders have also had an opportunity to choose between different types of programs, where they could choose to lock their VET units for 30, 60, or 90 days. The team has also added that all token holders would have to try a bit harder in case they would like to get a chance of collecting rewards from this project.

To conclude the story, if you are wondering how come X Series Node Program makes up for one of the reasons for holding onto VeChain, there is a rather simple explanation for that.

Apparently, the VEN team has stated that the reason behind launching the X Node project is to establish a stable economy in their own ecosystem. In addition to this reason, the team has added that they are launching the X Node program in order, to begin with, “trust tracking” of VeThor Economy and the way VeThor tokens are performing.

As a huge plus, all participants that turn out to be eligible will be rewarded in accordance with their contribution.

VeChain Main Net

One of the main reasons for sticking to your VET units is the fact that VeChain Main Net is to be launched pretty soon. As we’ve had more than a single case to conclude based on, when the main net of a certain coin is expected, the given coin always goes through a much-expected rise in the market.

That is also the case with VET as we can see this currency trading in the green for a prolonged time although it started off with its rebound at what could be categorized as a slow start, especially when compared to VeChain’s previous performance.

The Main Net launching is announced to officially happen on June 30th, when VeChain will officially launch its own network. Until then, it is not expected to see massive drops in the market hovering around VET.

It is also considered that the price of this currency is going to jump up dizzily against the market upon the launching set for June 30th.

VeChain and INPI ASIA Partnership

The main reason to value the newly started collaboration between VeChain and INPI ASIA is NDCode Technology.

When combined, VeChain platform and NDCode hold a great potential of sky-rocketing VeChain and its technology. In addition to the increased exposure of the coin, NDCode should acquire a pretty important place for VEN in the crypto mass adoption phase that seems to be taking off strongly, especially during the last month.

However, the greatest potential for NDCode technology is mirrored in the purpose of this piece of technology in the supply chain management industry, as VeChain together with INPI ASIA is aiming at revolutionizing the way supply chain works.

The initial technology should be used for authentication process of all items and services in the VEN economy and its supply chain. As the positive effect, VET would be more seized after on the market as companies would have to purchase VET in order to be able to use this soon-to-be exquisite technology.

VeChain and MPP Protocol

Yet another one of many reasons to consider holding VeChain units is the so-called MPP protocol, which is abbreviated from Multi-Party Payment Protocol. As you might know, VeChain Thor platform is still in its developmental stage, so the developers working on Thor have come up with MPP protocol.

The single purpose of this protocol is the idea of changing the way crypto-based payments are being carried out across the network. At the same time, this protocol should contribute to the mass adoption of VEN, VET and its native network.

What makes MPP revolutionary is the ability to set up a new way of making crypto transactions where transactions will be possible between more than two parties, which means that payments would be multi-user based. IN addition to this amazing improvement, MPP is set to arrange the way crypto transactions are being made by performing transactions even between users who are using crypto and those who are using fiat currencies, being able to process “mixed” payments all at once.

How is VeChain doing at the Current Moment?

Even though VeChain had a slower start in oppose to its previous performance, VET is now doing more than well as the market is being recovered from the recent selloff that occurred nearly a week ago.

Following the trend in the market, VET is going up against the dollar for 8.62% while trading in the green. In addition to rising against the dollar, VET is going up against BTC and ETH, for 8.14% and 8.56%.

After the recent change in the market, VET can be purchased at the price of 4.30$ per one unit, while slowly progressing towards its all-time high of 9.45$ per one unit as marked back at the end of January.

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
