Crypto enthusiasts only had a week to adjust to Verge’s recent victory involving the adoption of cryptos, when Verge (XVG) decided that they are still not done with their business deals. Another collaboration may be entered quite soon.

It has been a week since Verge managed to enter the partnership with MindGeek, which was considered to be one of the greatest victories for cryptos to date. However, this currency is not showing any signs of stopping when it comes to achieving what was seen as nearly impossible only a few years ago. They are now considering making the next historic deal, and this time, the aim is set at the music streaming giant – Spotify.

Verge wants Spotify

Verge core member which is in charge of recruitment and social media, Cees Van Dam, has decided to call out to XVG’s community. Van Dam wanted the VergeFam to add their support to a campaign that has a goal of getting Spotify to adopt cryptos as well.

He posted a tweet in which he asked XVG’s followers to give their thoughts and vote on a new proposal that would demand that Spotify makes a formal evaluation of Verge cryptocurrency. The goal of this act is to determine whether XVG is good enough to be added to this music streaming platform.

The tweet received a lot of support and attention and was retweeted and favorited several hundreds of times.

A Verge volunteer that goes by “Dan” is the one responsible for this suggestion. He pointed out to Spotify that partnership between Verge and MindGeek was a “monumental accomplishment”. He also called the potential partnership with Spotify “a huge business opportunity”.

Another thing that Dan informed Spotify of is the fact that any positive outcome regarding the proposal would be supported by Verge’s enormous community. The community itself is constantly searching the Internet in search of new resources, all for the purpose of letting the consumers take full advantage of every new partnership.

The idea of partnership gains popularity

There is a great chance that Spotify will see the potential that this offer carries. The suggestion proposed by Dan is one of the highest ranking ideas on Spotify’s page called “Top Ideas“. Whether the company chooses to act on this idea or not, they will definitely at least see it.

VergeFam’s members seem to be extremely encouraged by Verge’s recent successes, and it would seem that they have even developed a habit of finding the new potential partners for Verge. Not only that, but the members themselves choose to take the first step when it comes to approaching the companies that might make a good match.

There were many suggestions that appeared recently, and some of the most important ones include Tinder, as well as Stripe. The wish list also treats Netflix as one of the most desired potential partners, but whether one or more of these companies will be interested still remains to be seen.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
