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.

Recent Partnerships

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.

  1. 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;

Securewear

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

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

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
