VeChain’s Potential Acknowledged By Nasdaq
After the crash in the crypto market, some altcoins are available at a “discount”, as optimist investors said. A report published by Nasdaq titled “7 Low-Cost Altcoins That Still Have Solid Potential In 2021” listed VeChain, Bitcoin, Cardano, Ethereum, and others in this ranking.
The report cited a thesis by academic Pietro Palamara of the School of Industrial and Information Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy. This academic claimed the following:
Vechain is a permissioned blockchain platform based on Ethereum blockchain, it was developed by the Chinese BaaS company BitSe, based in Shanghai and founded by ex-managers of IBM, Louis Vitton and Alibaba. Developers of Vechain aim at completely eliminating the threat of the market of counterfeit goods, using the potentialities of smart contracts and blockchain technology.
VET trades at $0,11 with a 10% and 13.8% correction in the daily and weekly chart. In the monthly chart, VET records a 45.9% loss.
This cryptocurrency has been very affected by the recent crash, but analyst Justin Bennet seems bullish on its long-term performance. He said:
What people forget is that $VET started this correction at +17,600% from the March 2020 low. Even at 0.04, it’d still be up 2,400% since the 2020 low. You don’t get to enjoy those kinds of gains without major gut checks along the way.
