Is VeThor (VTHO) a good investment?

Programmable blockchain tokens' value tends to increase with the adoption of their underlying blockchain. For example, the adoption of the Ethereum blockchain for building DeFi apps and trading NFT products has driven up the value of its Ether token.

In fact, Goldman Sachs predicts that Ether could overtake Bitcoin as the world’s dominant cryptocurrency because of Ethereum’s growing adoption. Solana’s SOL token and Cardano’s ADA token have also skyrocketed as the adoption of their underlying blockchains expands.

Similarly, VeThor should appreciate as VeChain's adoption grows. PwC China has tapped VeChain to power its Air Trace platform, which accelerates innovation and the building of application software.

VeThor's (VTHO) price prediction

Another factor that will affect VeThor is token supply. The supply of VTHO is tied to the supply of its sister crypto, VET, which is capped at 86 billion tokens.

The capped supply brings scarcity, which can boost a token’s value. This is evident in Bitcoin, which some investors see as digital gold.

In addition to having a capped supply, VeThor is made rare through token burns. As much as 70 percent of VeThor paid as transaction fees is destroyed. VeThor could also get a boost from a Coinbase listing. Although VeThor is just above $0.01 currently, it could reach $1 by 2025.
