While Bitcoin has drifted between $6,000 and $6,500 over the past week, three coins have surged above and beyond the pack.
VeChain soared 64% in the last seven days, according to the latest market data on WorldCoinIndex. The coin rose as more and more exchanges, including Singapore-based Huobi, completed VeChain’s token transfer, migrating VeChain’s old ERC20 tokens onto the platform’s new proprietary blockchain.
News of China’s plans to use VeChain to improve medical standards and vaccine safety, stemming from an announcement that was first made early this month, also began to spread.
In combination with DNV GL, we introduce our Drug and Vaccine Traceability Solution. It will be deployed in Shanghai, serving 30 million individuals, and will soon be rolled out across China. It will be showcased at the China International Import Expo.https://t.co/WOFOXYUJ9X

Last but not least, Nano popped 60% in the past week. The coin was just added to the Bitcoin Superstore, giving people a way to spend the cryptocurrency at more than 200,000 retail outlets.
Yesterday, Bitcoin Superstore started accepting #Nano.
Today, we want to say thank you to the team who made this happen…
So, thank you @Brain_blocks and @Schenkty for developing such an amazing product!
