The price of VET continues to plummet despite the many ecosystem upgrades to the veChainThor blockchain. On 28 June, the VEchain Foundation announced its partnership with Supply@ME Capital PLC, the fintech company behind the inventory monetization platform.
According to the announcement, the alliance between the entities aims to build a first-of-its-kind “Web3 Inventory Monetisation System that utilizes blockchain, stablecoin, and NFT technology to help creditworthy businesses raise value from their inventories and provide companies with entirely new kinds of economic services.”
