VeChain (VET), which is rapidly growing to become one of the most lucrative cryptocurrencies, has managed to find a permanent place in the crypto community for quality services, including financial services, smart contracts, and supply management, etc. Traders who are updated with the latest developments on the blockchain are likely to be aware of VeChain’s rebranding to VeChainThor (VET). The digital platform, which announced the testing of VeChainThor on Twitter, has released its updated whitepaper and development plans. With MainNet launch scheduled on May 25, the blockchain is all set to start a new chapter.
VeChain Releases Upgraded Whitepaper After Rebranding
Operational since 2015, Vechain (VET) has evolved to become a leading digital platform for financial services, supply chain management, and smart contracts. As an ERC20 token powered by Ethereum network, it has a stable follower-base in the crypto community. The blockchain project, which is rapidly growing to become one of the promising investment options, is gearing up with some exciting updates to make a fresh comeback in the market.
Apart from VeChain’s (VET) rebranding to VeChainThor, this rising altcoin has announced some important updates, including the launch of the whitepaper and the much hyped-up MainNet launch. Regarding the whitepaper release, VeChain Foundation reported, “Unveiling our ‘Development Plan and Whitepaper’ with an updated governance structure, economic model, and new use cases. This piece will gradually be updated throughout its existence to reflect the goals and growth of the VeChainThor Blockchain.”
As per the latest whitepaper launched by the developing team, VeChainThor Blockchain can be regarded as ‘the next generation of public blockchains’, which focuses on an improved governance and economic model, as well as advanced regulation and compliance abilities. As a promising non-profit digital platform, the blockchain strives to develop a trust-free and distributed ecosystem, providing users with high-end financial services which include seamless information flow and lightning fast value transfers.
VeChain Has Started the Public Testing of the MainNet
The rebranding of VeChain marks an important milestone for the currency, wherein it will enter into a new phase in the industry. The announcement which has been made official on Twitter has attracted positive responses from the investors. The development team has already initiated making plans to ensure the rebranding proceedings are efficiently executed. As per the latest updates, the upgraded blockchain has been tested in-house and is prepared for public testing. Speaking of the public testing, the VeChain observed, “The public beta test is approaching! During this test, we will officially make our code base public. Additionally, we will be looking to bring on 100 community testers for our public alpha to work alongside esteemed cybersecurity organizations.”
After the announcement of VeChain’s rebranding, which has invigorated fresh interest in the platform, the VeChain team is waiting for the most anticipated project of the blockchain, the Mainnet Launch. Talks of the VeChain’s MainNet launch has been going on for some time now. Finally, the VeChain Main Net is ready for the public testing. The MainNet which is now undergoing public testing would be officially launched on June 30.
VeChain and Partnerships
The developments on the VET network, which have become the talking point for many investors, are not the only thing to watch out for. As for the VeChain investors, the news of partnerships can be a driving factor. According to the sources, VeChain Foundation has officially signed on two new partnership projects, with Bright Foods to regulate the company’s management system with blockchain technology.
As an internationally reputed company operating in more than 93 subsidiary firms in China and other countries, the company boasts an annual income of Y160 Billion. The tie-up suggests that VeChain would integrate its upgraded VeChainThor Blockchain into Bright Food’s supply chain and management system.
VeChain’s Market Response
Considering the depressing state of the crypto market, which has seen some disastrous performances from top performing currencies, VeChain’s response hasn’t been terrible so far. In fact, it is doing a decent job in the bearish market. VEN has witnessed appreciable growth in the past few weeks, while other currencies were faltering.
The currency, which has moved up by 4.12% from its previous position, is still trading in the green and now available to the traders at $4.51. Ranking 16th by market capitalization, the market capitalization of VeChain is tantamount to $2,372,442,497, while it boasts a trading volume of $87,120,300 as of July 21, 2018.
The popularity of VET chain continues to soar as the blockchain embraces major developments into its system. With developments like the rebranding of the network and new partnerships renewing the interests in VET, all eyes are set on the MainNet launch.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
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…
