VeChain News Today – VeChain Foundation – VeChain Partnerships – Buybacks for Independence Celebration
Recently, buying back a cryptocurrency to celebrate its independence from Ethereum is becoming a trend. Tron bought back $20 million of its TRX coins to celebrate its independence from Ethereum last week. VeChain has decided to follow suit too. The buyback will benefit the holders of the VET coins.
VeChain intends to put the recovered coins back into the system for further develop of the platform. Besides, the VeChain Foundation may attempt to use this approach to facilitate the growth of its platform. Often, Binance uses a portion of its profit on its coin. This approach has ideally positioned the crypto on a price gain run throughout last year.
Buybacks benefit the cryptocurrency. It reduces the supply of the digital currency and increases the value of the coins available in the crypto market. The primary reason for a buyback is to increase the price of the digital currency. Consequently, the holders of VET coin are likely to enjoy the increase in its value within the next 12 months. Blockchain projects use the buyback approach to stabilize the prices of their cryptocurrencies. However, companies have been using this technique for their stocks.
VeChain Foundation plans to spice up the 12 months anniversary celebration of VeChain mainnet. Currently, a competition is running on the VeChain platform prizes in cryptocurrencies.
The winners of the contests will receive 163,000 VET ($1,300) and16,300 OCE ($97). OceanEx token is a digital currency that runs on the VeChain platform.
However, interested users have no information on how to enter and win the competition. Fortunately, an individual figured out how to play the game but the wallets were empty. The treasure hunt remains unsolved since there are no tips on how to play. It seems VeChain blockchain isn’t good at competitions.

Partnerships are likely to be one of VeChain’s strong suit. The blockchain hit the headlines last week when it partnered with Walmart China. VeChain is expected to track the multiple product supply lines of the company. It will also provide consumers with information on food safety. With the partnerships, buybacks, and integrations, the VET cryptocurrency is likely to experience an increase in value.
Besides, VeChain is available for purchase on the U.S-based app, Metal Pay. This app is ideal for sending and storing cryptocurrencies.
