Michael, Chairman of Invest Cyprus
Sunny Lu, Co-Founder, and CEO of VeChain added:
“Just as the blockchain technology represents something much bigger than business and money, this partnership represents the true competency for global change embedding trust, transparency, and fairness to the core of our society.

This is great news for VeChain and the whole crypto market – a partnership with the investment arm for the national government further solidifies this nascent technology and enables more mainstream exposure.
VeChain Market Situation
The past couple of weeks have been quiet for VeChain, primarily because the whole market was stable and depressed and hasn’t seen any major changes. VET is currently traded at $0.011 which is a -2.62% drop in comparison to the last day.
With this new positive news and technical improvements in the ecosystem (OceanEX exchange and Arkane Network), the future looks bright for VeChain.
