In a May 10th tweet, the official Bitfinex handle announced that VeChain (VET) deposits have been enabled on the popular online and mobile trading platform. Checking the platform indicates that trading is now live on both Bitfinex and its sister exchange, Ethfinex. Not many crypto traders caught on but Global Coin Report was able to spot the development.
The listing adds to the much-needed liquidity by the VeChain (VET) project and token. The current market analysis puts VEN at a value of $4.57 at the moment of writing this. The token is up less than a percent in the last 24 hours. The token’s market capitalization is pretty high at $2.404 Billion with a circulating supply of 526 Million VEN. The token is now available on 48 exchanges according to coinmarketcap.com.
With respect to Bitfinex and Ethfinex, the latter was only launched this year as an ERC20-token-specific trading platform unlike the parent exchange, Bitfinex, that caters for also the major coins. With Ethereum, Bitcoin and the USD as the major currencies that token pair with on the Ethfinex platform, it allows for fluid trading amongst the 3 base crypto and fiat options. The beauty of being on the Bitfinex platform is that you can log into Ethfinex using the same credentials and your balances will still be visible on both. This is some good integration by the Bitfinex and Ethfinex teams.
VeChain is a leading global enterprise level public blockchain platform. It aims to bridge blockchain technology and real-world applications. VeChain also plans on providing the necessary decentralized governance structure to build a robust economic model as well as the advanced Internet of Things integration.
The project recently rebranded to VeChain Thor (VET) and has a new blockchain with a similar name: VeChainThor Blockchain. It is currently undergoing rigorous tests to ensure that it works as it was designed to do when the Main Net is launched later this year.
The timetable towards final launch involves a Public Alpha test which will involve 100 vetted testers. In June this year, the VeChain foundation will open the code base to the public signifying the start of the Public Beta Test for further hands-on testing. The MainNet will be launched by the end of June; adding to a growing list of projects launching the MainNet versions of their projects in Q2 this year.
The Next few months will be an exciting time for the Crypto-verse.

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
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.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
