VeChain (VET) has been hanging on throughout the last bear market relatively well. Even though its USD price suffered and fell to $3.11 at one point, the VEN/BTC pairing hasn’t bled much, staying strong above 44200 satoshis. Just like the rest of the market, VEN had a bad month of May USD-wise but has since recovered, rising from the mentioned $3.11 to $4.04. The BTC value followed suit, gaining around 5 thousand satoshis since the turn of the month. It is currently trading just above 51000 satoshis.
While it has resisted the downtrends (especially the BTC one) pretty well so far, some traders feel like VEN could be heading towards a retracement.

It might be best for it to happen now, while the general market correction is still going on, and not when the entire market enters a bull run. A deep, healthy retrace should ensure VEN climbs to higher highs in the future. So far, it shows no signs of slowing down and is currently the only top cryptocurrency that has had a green year so far.
FA side of things looks stellar so far. VeChain is a project looking to regulate the supply chain management process, putting strong focus on assessing the quality of products it manages.

Many people have criticized VeChain for investing too much time and money into testing. Sunny Lu doesn’t seem bothered by these naysayers, saying:
“With any kind of software project or system project, you should put at least fifty percent of [your] budget in testing”.
