Crypto enthusiasts are well aware of the VeChain (VET) project since it’s one of the most successful Chinese digital currencies in the crypto space. After becoming world’s hot topics for conversation, investors are flocking towards crypto markets despite the looming regulations and volatility of the market. The reason why everybody is going on board with VeChain is that it is deemed as a solid blockchain project having definite goals and also because of its one of those projects which keep making progress and do not depend on the market’s trend. With its Thor blockchain release, VeChain seems to be ready for a bullish rally once Bitcoin recovers and hits $8000 USD. In this article, we shall discuss the recent activities by VeChain and how it’ll affect VET markets.
About VeChain and VeChain Thor
VeChain is one of the oldest companies to exist in the crypto world. It was established back in 2015 in Singapore. VeChain is a decentralized smart contract platform which focusses on improving the management process of supply chains. VeChain has bagged many bigshot investors and a huge dedicated community to support its project over the years. VeChain has also several major partnerships with other companies. Their blockchain app has found application in agriculture, winemaking, and luxury items. The VeChain team has been planning for a rebranding of VeChain to VeChain Thor. This update has kept VeChain traders and its community members on their toes. Since its going to be a big update for the entire platform, analysts believe that VET might show signs of new peak position in the days to come. This rebranding will also serve as an upgrade to VeChain blockchain’s functionality and make it similar to Ethereum’s platform.
The team behind VeChain is always busy making progress in order to make the platform better and efficient from all other competitors. VeChain remains constantly in news for its collaboration with different companies and its preparation for the release of VeChain Thor blockchain.
Partnership with DECENT.bet:
In the last week of May, they announced a strategic partnership with DECENT.bet which is going to be the first mainnet on VeChain Thor platform later on. DECENT.bet is a smart contract based, sports betting platform whose goal is to revolutionize the gaming industry. In their official announcement, DECENT.bet has clearly commented that according to their team, VeChain is the necessity of the future and ideal for those which are frustrated with Ethereum.
Partnership with MustangChain
A new blockchain project which goes by the name of MustangChain has recently announced choosing VeChain thor blockchain for their project due to its technological benefits for execution of transactions, ownership of data, collaboration and IoT integration which is quite adaptable for their project.
- Collaboration with SlowMist to Secure VeChain Thor
Lately, VeChain has been boosting the security testing collaboration before the Mainnet occurs. After the recent hacking incidents of Bitcoin Gold and ZenCash, VeChain has probably plans to guarantee the safety of their platform so that the launch of VeChain Thor goes smoothly. As for now, VeChain has made security as their foremost priority. VeChain has made third parties responsible for security alpha testing, checking the code and editing where necessary and also guarantee the safety of wallet. VeChain has sealed partnerships with the following companies;
This company already has a background in blockchain security and global reputation. After partnering with VeChain, it’ll aid in developing a secure network for its launch.
Hosho is a renowned blockchain security specialist and they’ve worked for several fortune 500 companies and they’re currently working primarily on blockchain security as well as smart contracts.
SlowMist is known for its expertise in cyber security but with their partnership with VeChain, they have entered the world of blockchain security. Their specialty lies in working for security audits, creating a defense system against hacking and they’ll be responsible for keeping VeChain Thor blockchain hacker-free.
- Bug Bounty Program Launched at Hackenproof
Hackenproof is better known as the leading tokenized crowdsourced bounty platform where people are rewarded for exposing vulnerabilities in a certain platform. VeChain has also declared starting a private bug bounty on Hackenproof. This step was clearly taken to search and destroy any remaining vulnerabilities in the alpha stage of VeChain Thor blockchain.
- Current Trading Position
Due to the current sluggish improvement in Bitcoin prices, major altcoins are seeming to be struggling to shake off the negative trend on their price indicator. Although, VeChain is ranked as 16th largest cryptocurrency in the world at the time of writing it is still experiencing a price drop of 5.13% and is trading at around $3.85 USD per token. The total market capitalization is close to $2.02 billion USD and an approximate of $88.30 million USD worth VET tokens have exchanged hands within past 24 hours according to the data on CoinMarketCap.
- Final Thoughts
VeChain community is sure of VET’s recovery due to VeChain Thor blockchain and the constant milestone completion by VeChain’s team. There’s no doubt that being security focussed at a time like this will reward VeChain investors. It’s just a matter of time for VeChain markets to take over the crypto space.

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.”
