The VeChain price slumped on Monday as cryptocurrency prices retreated. The VET price declined by more than 7.5% to a low of $0.100, which was the lowest level since September 7.
Like most cryptocurrencies, its price has fallen by more than 35% from its highest level this month, bringing its total market capitalization to more than $6.48 billion, making it the 29th biggest cryptocurrency in the world. At its peak, VeChain was among the top 20 of the biggest cryptocurrency in the world.
Why is VET tumbling?

And recently, the network added Deloitte’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) as part of its steering committee. Antonio Senatore also serves as the head of Deloitte’s EMEA Blockchain Lab. In a statement, he said:
“I am honored to become the interim Steering Committee member of the VeChain Foundation. This committee has vast professional talents. I look forward to working with all these members, and am personally dedicated in bridging more resources with the VeChain Foundation to achieve both ecosystem and business success in the long run.”
VeChain has also been adopted by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, which is using its technology to build a low-code digital service.
