The report reads in part as follows:

“Binance will handle all technical requirements involved for all users holding VET in their Binance accounts. The VET network upgrade & hard fork will not result in new tokens being created.

“We will reopen deposits and withdrawals for VET once we deem the upgraded network to be stable, and we will not notify users in a further announcement.”

Why VeChain (VET) Needs the Upcoming Upgrade and Hard Fork

As earlier reported by Herald Sheets, VeChain’s upcoming upgrade and hard fork known as ETH_IST, is meant to enable the network to maintain compatibility with Ethereum virtual machine.

About three weeks ago, VeChain announced the release of the latest version of VeChainThor, a version designed to conform the network to the Ethereum Berlin hard fork that played out a few weeks ago.
