As of Apr 31, 2020, the circulating amount (i.e. 64,315,576,989) remains almost the same as the last reporting period. The circulating amount at this period end accounts for roughly 74.8% of the total supply, compared to 74.9%, last period end. Within the VET circulating supply, 21,833,053,627 VETs were in the soft-lockups, which makes 25.4% of the total supply. By the end of this reporting period, around 49.4% of the VET total supply is free for trading in the open market.

  • X Nodes staking — each X node keeps a minimum amount of VETs based on four different tiers
  • Economic Nodes staking — each economic node keeps a minimum amount of VETs based on three different tiers
  • Team Lockup — According to the whitepaper 5% of the total VET supply is allocated to co-founders and development team, as of Jan 31, 2020, over 3 billion VETs have been locked up by the team to show the commitment to VeChain’s long term success

We summarized below the USD value of the expenditure in fiat or BTC/ETH for the reporting period. For the spending in BTC or ETH, the USD value was booked based on the rate when the transaction occurred. In many situations our service providers and partners prefer to receive VET as direct payment or investment compared to using fiat or BTC/ETH. Therefore, the total expenditure for operation, technological and business development comprises a combination of direct VET payment and use of proceeds (fiat, BTC/ETH) depending on the associated parties’ preference.

i) Enterprise Investor Pool

During this quarter, the COVID-19 pandemic has largely put the investment activities on hold and no enterprise investor was accredited.

ii) Co-Founders, Development Team

Given the large impact brought by COVID-19 and uncertainty in the long term impact on the global economy, we made structured analysis of the current business and decided to put all team reward programs on hold for this quarter.

iii) The Operation, Technological Research and Development

During this period, there have been notable improvements announced to the public, highlighting our great efforts in R&D in exchange for huge technological achievements, which is illustrated as follows:

  • Several updates on Sync were released to optimize the user experience of signing with Ledger devices and wallet selection, such as Sync v1.2.2 that has multiple improvements on UI and bug fixing.
  • Several updates on VeChainThor on VeChain Official Explorer were released to improve the performance. This updated version enables users to download account transfer records.

iv) Business Development

During this quarter, VeChain was awarded a top 5% ranking among startups around the globe by Early Metrics, which recognized the development and growth logic, market positioning, technical professionalism, and operational execution of VeChain, further proving the potential of VeChain’s business growth.

  • PlatformXChain (March 17)
  • Shanghai Gas (March 31)
  • Sunny Lu, CEO and co-founder of VeChain, conducted a live AMA on Cryptocom’s Telegram Channel to share VeChain’s recent progress and to answer questions from the community. (April 23)

v) Compliance & Legal

VeChain hires professional service providers in cybersecurity and legal to ensure products and solutions we offer are secure and compliant with regulations, which we believe is the prerequisite of mass adoption by global enterprises.

vi) Ecosystem Development

In order to provide better support for community developers and improve the quality of contributions incorporated participation, the Foundation team has adhered to the Foundation Grant Program and bounty program, which was being implemented with increasing closer communication with our community. Besides incentive programmes, we are also working with consultants to approach for more resources to create diversity in ecosystem productivity. The team continues to evaluate projects and keeps productive discussions with several teams.
