VeChain (VET) Price Rallies 7% to a 1-Month High
The latest surge in the crypto market has helped numerous altcoins break out of multi-month downtrends that followed the Christmas market surge near the end of 2019.
One such coin, VeChain (VET), a Singapore-based enterprise blockchain platform for financial services and supply chain management, is up 24% in the last week after breaking out of a 2-month falling wedge — a sign that a reversal is in the works.
VET is currently up 7.4% on the day to $0.004810 on $19 million in volume. The altcoin’s volume has steadily been on the rise over the last week, helping it to hit a 1-month high.
The News Hasn’t Been Bad Either…
While the breakout is likely driven by technical factors, the project’s recent appearance in a news segment on RAI1, a major Italian TV show that is viewed by millions daily, certainly didn’t hurt the altcoin’s momentum.

DNV-GL is truly paving the way for blockchain adoption in Italy.#VET #VechainThor @DNVGL @DNVGLBA_IT pic.twitter.com/FlGI6SgUJV

Prior to the latest rally, VeChain introduced a new tokenization system for its VeChainThor Nodes that allows for greater economic flexibility. VeChainThor nodes can now be represented by non-fungible VIP-181 tokens, allowing node holders to easily maintain and transfer their nodes between addresses, in addition to simpler integration of these nodes into third-party applications.
