Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

OUR VALUE PROPOSITION

CONNECT
VetCoin connects veterans to each other, veteran services, and retailers that offer military discounts.

ENABLE
VetCoin enables our heroes through access to capital in the blockchain economy allowing them to buy, trade, and invest in the future.

TRANSFORM
VetCoin transforms lives by donating to charities that support veterans in need.

Vetcoin Foundation is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) Foundation and 509(a)(2) Public Charity eligible to receive tax deductible contributions, bequests and donations with a mission to Connect, Enable and Transform veteran communities through blockchain technology and cryptocurrency to address these issues.

We created the VETAVERSE which is a virtual world and the home of veteran-owned businesses, services and veteran-oriented non-profits along with civilian merchants that offer military discounts. The VETAVERSE is forever free for veterans to help their businesses gain more market presence than ever before. VetCoin (VTC) is the default currency of the VETAVERSE.

VetCoin also has the Start-up Business Incubator Program where we give grants of up to $5,000 and 100million VetCoins to deserving veteran business start-ups to jumpstart their promising business ideas.

VetCoin is currently setting up virtual consultations and therapy sessions in the VETAVERSE for vetetans with health and mental health issues where they could have free consultations with our affiliated professionals.

VetCoin also creates focus groups with diverse interests where veterans could join the respective communities with their similar interests.

VetCoin will also do housing projects for homeless veterans.

More projects are being conceptualized wherein VetCoin would also partner with other non-profits to accomplish our missions.

VetCoin is composed of a board of 11 born and honed leaders that are all proven to accomplish huge tasks and could efficiently lead people to do extraordinary tasks as well from retired military officers, former US ambassador, successful businessmen, etc. along with a strategically diverse board of advisors.

VetCoin also has presence in all 50 states aside of the global team.

VetCoin as successfully launched last Veterans Day November 11, 2021 and have already successfully created the VETAVERSE which will be launched on May 12, 2022 at our Leaving No Veterans Behind event at Tampa Club where we will award our first winner of the Start-up Business Incubator Program.
