Via its Twitter handle, the VeChain Foundation announced VeChain was mentioned in 2021 Forbes Blockchain 50. Celebrated for its third year, this event was created to offer a “definitive accounting” of those companies using blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin and blockchain have gone mainstream. Bitcoin’s 2020 surge grabbed the attention of C-suite executives worldwide; not only are companies employing the technology underlying Bitcoin to perform tasks such as reconciling invoices and verifying product provenance, but dozens are now holding Bitcoin as a treasury asset.

VeChain’s (VET) recent price action manipulated?
Trader Justin Bennet has been bullish on VeChain’s native token VET. However, he believes the 24-hour rally could have been caused by a “large Discord group”. Bennet classified the token’s rally as inorganic and said there was manipulation in yesterday’s price action. He added:
Stating that there was a coordinated VET pump on Friday takes nothing away from the fundamentals behind VeChain. Does VET deserve to be where it is? Hell yes. I’ve said multiple times I think it’s going to $1 to $3 this year.
The Discord group Bennet referred has approximately 200,000 members and their alleged move converge with a high trading volume for VET in South Korea’s exchanges.
On the other hand, trader VeChain Justin said VET is poised for a “parabolic move”. According to the chart he shared, VET has formed a “massive bullish Cup & Handle Pattern”. In addition to an increase in trading volume, this could send VET to a 377% rally. He added:
This aligns closely with 4.618 Fib extension. Expect consolidation in handle before liftoff. $VET target: $0.5008.
