VELIC, a comprehensive solution for crypto-asset management with native VELT token, today announced it has established a strategic partnership with ICON, a leading blockchain network on the forefront of interconnecting isolated projects. VELIC aims to unify disparate services into a single “digital asset financial service.”
As a financial DApp, VELIC has been searching for a suitable smart contract platform to develop upon. The team reviewed Ethereum, EOS, Hyperledger, and Qtum, however, it ultimately decided to develop on the ICON’s loopchain. Not only will ICON’s loopchain enable VELIC to scale to enterprise-level, but conversely VELIC will also help expand the ICON ecosystem.
Each letter of VELIC represents one of its core services. Vault: privately secures private keys in a decentralized state. Exchange: provide crypto-to-crypto exchange alongside trade-mining staking features. Loan: create an internal credit-rating system that enables the borrowing of crypto assets. Investment: provides crypto asset management services for crypto assets on VELIC. Crypto Assets: most importantly, VELIC will primarily be focused on developing a financial crypto financial infrastructure.

As a global exchange VELIC can introduce ICON to a new global user base. ICON aims to co-expand the blockchain ecosystem by providing technical support (loopchain) to VELIC.”[/perfectpullquote]
