VeChain seems to be going full steam while its current development stage is focused on the launching of the VeChain Thor platform.
VeChain Thor test net was released to the public on June 14th, while it is expected to have the testing all done and wrapped up by the end of the following month, after which we will get to see the VeChain Thor platform in its full operational power.
VeChain has once again gotten into the spotlight with the latest announcement the VeChain foundation has made via their twitter, stating that they have acquired a perfect partner for VeChain Thor when it comes to making an infrastructure partner.
VeChain Announces a Crucial Partner for VeChain Thor
VeChain foundation has announced via their official Twitter account that they have just acquired a crucial partner for the infrastructure of VeChain Thor.
The announcement was made on June 20th, and on this occasion, VeChain stated that they have partnered up with Esprezzo due to their Esprezzo app.
What brought Esprezzo to VeChain was the fact that their CEO attended the Blockchain Week in New York, where he was fascinated with the dedication the team VEN has shown during the conference.
Esprezzo was presented by VeChain foundation on their official release on Medium as well, where Esprezzo was described as a provider that makes designing of decentralized applications easier and simpler for developers, while enabling enterprises, foundations and individual developers to use exquisite tools for easier blockchain based construction of decentralized applications.
Esprezzo thus has the main objective of creating middleware for blockchain based operations that front-end developers could take advantage of.
VeChain presented Esprezzo application as the first “velocity toolkit” that serves the purpose of providing the needed tools for an easy and simple creation of Dapps.
Esprezzo on VeChain Partnership
According to the CEO of Esprezzo, he decided to go forward with initiating collaboration between Esprezzo and VeChain Foundation once he attended the Blockchain Week that was held in New York.
On this occasion he stated that the VEN team is one of the most dedicated and loyal communities that he has ever gotten a chance to meet, as well as stating that he hopes that Esprezzo and VeChain will together share the enthusiasm that VEN community has as well as “bring the benefits of blockchain to everyone”.
The excitement seems to go both ways, so probably due to the recent partnerships and so far successful test net of VeChain Thor, VEN managed to pull out again, although a minor one, in the middle of the market with over 90% of the dropping assets at this point.
While VeChain Thor users will be able to take advantage of different features that Esprezzo platform is offering with this partnership, Esprezzo will have its tokens (EZPZ) where the tokens will be minted in the following weeks.
Esprezzo has pledged to have at least a single sale of EZPZ tokens organized to be sold in VET tokens, while the company also signed the agreement with VeChain foundation where they have promised to hold VET tokens, while not spending the mentioned units unless there are no other resources to be spent.
It seems that VEN foundation has made a proper choice with their “first VeChain Thor partnership” as having Esprezzo investing in VEN is the main reason while we can see VEN up at this moment even though the majority of assets started to drop in the past couple of hours.
With Esprezzo app, the users of VeChain Thor will soon be able to easily create and deploy decentralized apps thanks to the super API tools and the toolkit that Esprezzo brought to VEN with this partnership, that way creating a more functional ecosystem for developing Dapps and operating with smart contracts.
VeChain (VEN) Performance
Although acquiring only a minor boost in the now dropping market, VEN is going up by 0.30% against the dollar at this moment, while surpassing ETH by over 2% at this point.
Soon to become VET, VeChain can currently be traded at the price of 3.18$ while being ranked as the 17th-best currency.

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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
