Why Are VeChain (VET) Staking Rewards Distributed in the Form of VeThor Tokens (VTHO)?
When customers stake VeChain (VET) on Binance.US, they’ll receive staking rewards in the form of VeThor (VTHO). The VeChain Thor blockchain relies on a dual-token system where VET and VTHO are mutually dependent upon each other: VET holders can generate VTHO, while VTHO is used to pay for transactions conducted within the VeChain ecosystem.
In addition to VET/VTHO staking, Binance.US customers can buy, sell, convert, or stake VET, and also buy, sell, and convert VTHO. Advanced Trading is available on the VET/USD, VET/USDT, VET/BTC, VTHO/USD, and VTHO/USDT pairs.
