Verge has given its best to skyrocket XVG during the past couple of months. Huge momentum was gained by the announced partnership with MindGeek that took XVG to Brazzers and Pornhub, some of the leading websites in the adult entertainment industry. However, after the partnership with MindGeek that was deemed a massive success, coming after the first successful crowdfunding campaign that XVG has ever had, the public wasn’t so thrilled to have XVG related to the mentioned partners.

Alongside with having Pornhub and Verge partnership mildly disapproved off, the thing that trapped XVG in a misfortunate limbo came in form of 51% attacks that hit Verge more than once in the period of the last couple of months.

With being criticized on both these cases, it seems that this privacy currency might have found a way to redeem itself both in the market and among the crypto community with having started the negotiations with RSK.

Was the 75 million in Verge (XVG) worth it?

Verge had the entire XVG community up on their feet back at the end of March when they announced the start of their first crowdfunding campaign while announcing the mystery partnership to go with it, scheduling the revealing of the partnership for April 17th, but only in the case the minimum of 75 million XVG is reached within the given timeframe.

As we all remember, everything went well for XVG as they managed to collect the needed sum before the crowdfunding ended, while also getting to the headlines across the internet, being one of the most-talked-about digital currencies for weeks.

The mystery partner was MindGeek, which brought XVG to Brazzers and Pornhub while also pushing it up in the market for a brief moment.

However, it seems that the public isn’t so happy about XVG/Pornhub deal, which caused the price of XVG to severely drop in oppose to the dollar.

While the market trends weren’t so benevolent either, XVG went down by -70% in the last two months, while showing -50% against the dollar in the course of the last 30 days. Far from its all-time high of around 0.23$, XVG seems to be having a rough time.

But, the tough situation everyone is talking about when it comes to XVG is only visible when it comes to the dropping price as Verge seems to be scoring listings while being added to SistemKoin at the beginning of June, while another company, PharmaXtracts, announced that they will be accepting XVG as a payment method starting from May of the following year.

Yes, Verge seems to be slowing down as it dropped from being among top 25 currencies to now being ranked as the 34th coin on the global coin ranking list.

However, XVG was in a way recognized with their mystery partnership and the dedication their holders and investors showed during the crowdfunding campaign, where TokenPay was marked as one of the top supporters while announcing XVG debit card in creation.

So, after all, it seems that 75 million XVG weren’t thrown for anything, although the Pornhub deal is still observed with a lavish dose of criticism.

Verge/RSK Integration: Is it going to Happen?

The team behind XVG has announced a week ago on June 9th that the team Verge has officially started with negotiations with RSK mart contract solutions, which is said to be the safest option for making and deploying decentralized apps as well as operating with smart contracts.

Verge seems to be trying the well-known recipe for the second time by representing a new partnership on June 8th with an official post that came from the Verge currency Twitter account, tickling the public once again by following the March model when XVG was circling around MindGeek while keeping their intentions a secret.

However, only one day after, XVG announced that they have initiated negotiations with RSK, which means that XVG could soon have RSK integrated into its system.

RSK is said to be the safest option for smart contract operations, which means that XVG could gain more on privacy and security.

Although XVG is presented as a safe currency, it seems to be hard for the investors to forget that Verge had several 51% attacks during the last couple of months, which also puts RSK integration into question.

Although the deal hasn’t become official yet, many believe that RSK will definitely go for cooperating with Verge, given the fact that the main objective of XVG is to become the top privacy currency in the market, while RSK is known to be a platform which is highly oriented to privacy.

No further details were provided on this matter from neither of the parties at this point.

Only a week before this announcement, Verge released their Test Net to the public, so it is generally a thought that XVG will have further updates on the RSK negotiations once we have more about the Test Net impressions.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
