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.

Conclusion

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.

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.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
