Binance.US Adds VET Staking
Binance.US has added support for VET staking. The platform has announced that rewards will be distributed every month. Yesterday, Binance.US announced through its Twitter page that it will begin to support staking of VeChain’s VET coin. Per the official announcement, VET staking has been requested by a high number of VeChain community members. Binance.US has now listened to the VET community. Here is the post:
“Binance.US will now support VTHO distribution to TET holders. VTHO will be shared monthly, but will be summed up according to daily snapshots of each user’s balance.”
Binance.US announced that to be eligible for VET staking on its platform, users must have a wallet balance higher than 1 VET. If they fail in this regard, they will be removed from the daily reward calculations. Additionally, the world’s biggest exchange clarified that even though VTHO generation will be summed up daily, the distribution of rewards will be carried out once a month before the 15th day. The exchange began VET staking on July 11.
