As Bitcoin struggles to rise above $7000 mark, the entire crypto market seems to be staggering and several altcoins are having a hard time to stay in the green zone for long. Teams behind influencing altcoins are actively working on improvements, listings, integration plans and of course, adoption. Such a crypto project which has a team that never rests is Verge (XVG).
After the 51% attack that weakened its position as a promising and secure privacy coin, Verge is desperately looking to redeem itself. At present Verge and other notable cryptocurrencies are going through the toughest bearish markets. Crypto enthusiasts believe that a new and better time for cryptos might just be around the corner. Verge has hinted towards a few new partnerships as well as integration to its platform which seems to have working well for its markets for a while. Its evident that the scrypt-based privacy coin is working hard to establish the trust factor once again.
Potential of Verge Coin
Verge has a dedicated community and it is that community which helps avoid Verge markets to plummet. Many of Verge supporters are constantly spreading the positive news (not FUD) across the crypto media. All of this because many cryptocurrency enthusiasts believe in Verge’s potential. Verge’s blockchain is said to be really fast and it’s quite scalable as compared to Bitcoin. Cost of transactions is also negligible when it comes to Verge cryptocurrency. It’s a cryptocurrency that was made for everyday use hence, their team strives for large adoptions and sufficient partnerships with projects sharing the same ideology. The main purpose for Verge team is to make it an improved version of bitcoin with better features such as speed, efficiency and making a decentralized transaction without hampering user’s privacy.
Australian Brand Bamb-U Gets in a Partnership with Verge (XVG)
People who have been keeping a close eye on Verge’s last week activities must know that they’ve been working out on several important goals which also includes major exchange listings as well. The news of an Australian brand called Bamb-U which deals in unique wooden watches accepting Verge as a mode of payment has proved that XVG adoption is spreading at its own healthy pace. The company Bamb-U is the leading brand of bamboo and watches in Australia. The company has not only announced to accept XVG but also chose its another crypto partner TokenPay to facilitate its user’s privacy and security.
Verge’s Recent Exchange Listings
After the recent hacking attempt which is being addressed as the 51% attack, Verge’s activities and its community are keeping it alive. Verge and its community members have announced a lot many exchange listings these few days on twitter. A newly opened Dutch crypto exchange which is about to become functional soon has listed Verge. The privacy coin’s trading also got re-enabled on Changelly claiming that trading conditions have now stabilized and functioning normally. Probably the best thing for Verge is to reach more markets than it already has as an attempt to expand its reach. For that reason, Verge coin got listed on a Brazilian cryptocurrency exchange called coin2001. By getting listed on this particular exchange, Verge has successfully entered the Latin American markets.
Verge’s Current market position
As crypto markets all over the world show red signs of bearish trends, altcoins are not expected to be in a better shape than Bitcoin. At the time of writing, Verge is ranked as the 34th largest crypto I the world according to CoinMarketCap data. The total market capital for Verge is close to $430 million while its exchange volume for the past 24 hours has reduced to $10.38 million. The individual price for Verge has reached close to $0.286 but its falling at a rate of 1.36%. Verge is listed on some of the biggest crypto exchanges such as Cryptopia, HitBTC, Upbit, Yobit and Nova Exchange from where traders can buy XVG with their ETH or BTC.
As far as these constant developments go, Verge is showing a lot of potential for a privacy-focused blockchain project that has been hacked twice in a short span. Crypto enthusiasts and Verge community members are peeling their eyes waiting for another milestone achievement which seems to be upcoming after their negotiations with RSK smart is complete.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
