Despite the odds, VeChain continued to grow in a positive direction in 2022. At the beginning of Q4, it announced expansion plans for its team in Europe. The VeChain Foundation revealed that the company was to hire 100 new developers to work in Europe, “pushing out new tools, technologies, developer libraries, and so on.”
VeChain has parallelly been expanding its footprint and real-life use cases over the past few months. Recently, the foundation announced that the world’s most valuable NFT with a real-world application was minted on the VeChainThor blockchain.
Now, its leading NFT marketplace, VeSea, has scripted another record. The platform surpassed 100 million in total trading volumes recently. The number currently stands at 101 million VET. Parallelly, the number of NFTs minted on VeSea has crossed 134k and the marketplace boasts over 252.6k items at press time.
VeSea’s official tweet announcing the volume milestone asserted,
“2023 is going to be a banger.”
VVAR DOGS was the top-performing collection on VeChain at press time. With a floor price of 3,400 VET, the collection amassed 119,639 VET via sales over the past 24 hours. The base price of other collections like VeKings, Frost Giant VeKings, and ExoWorlds had a much higher base price. However, their 24-hour volume was lower than VVAR DOGS.
