VeChain (VET) and VTHO have soared over news of a Coinbase listing, with social dominance also rising.
Enterprise-focused blockchain VeChain has seen the value of its native tokens, Vechain (VET) and VeThor (VTHO), increase significantly in the past 48 hours. The price surge is largely linked to a Coinbase listing for these assets, three months after the exchange added them to a listing roadmap.
Coinbase will add support for VeChain (VET) and VeThor (VTHO) on the VeChain network. Do not send this asset over other networks or your funds may be lost. Transfers for this asset are available on @Coinbase & @CoinbaseExch in the regions where trading is supported.
