Here’s Why Verge (XVG) Is Our Top Crypto Crash Recovery Play



Verge vs Monero

While Warren Buffett may not be the biggest fan of the cryptocurrency space, we know that if he was, he’d be looking to buy as much as he could right now. Be greedy when others are fearful is one of the Oracle of Omaha’s core investment tenets and, as the majority of the top twenty coins are getting hammered in the markets this week, now certainly is a fearful period.

We’ve taken this suggestion a step further and set out to find not only the coin that is severely weakened through the overarching negative sentiment in the markets but that has the potential to bounce back the highest as and when things recover.

And here it is – our number one recovery play this week in the cryptocurrency markets:

Verge (XVG).

Verge is currently trading for $0.06 a piece. At this price, the coin commands a total market cap of a little over $982 million ad twenty-four-hour volume hit circa $38 million during the twenty-four hour to time of writing (mid-morning ET).

Unlike the vast majority of other coins, XVG actually peaked on Christmas day, December 25, logging highs of $0.23 a coin for a market cap of more than $3.3 billion. This came on the back of what eventually turned out to be some misinformation on Twitter (we’re looking at you, John McAfee) but, regardless of the driver, it played a key role in drawing speculative attention towards this coin and this helped it to push into the start of 2018 in something of a strong position.

Peaks subsequent to the Christmas day highs came in around $0.22 (on a couple of occasions) but after the now much longed for January 7 market peak, XVG has traded in line with the wider markets and declined to the above mentioned current pricing.

So, right now, the coin is available at a circa 74% discount to its previous highs (highs at which we’ve no doubt many initiated a position), meaning it’s not going to take much of a bump to serve up a nice recovery return on an entry at current pricing.

But as we said, we aren’t just looking for a coin that’s fallen considerably. We also want to see some sort of fundamental driver than can either catalyze an upside run or support an upside revaluation – or both.

And with Verge, it’s all about liquidity.

This coin is one of those that’s in the sphere of awareness of a huge number of crypto enthusiasts but that, at the same time, isn’t privy to the same degree of liquidity that many of its peers enjoy.

This is rooted in the lack of exchange coverage for XVG. We think that this is soon going to change and we’ve put together a number of events to keep an eye on as indicative of a validation of our expectations.

There’s an ongoing Cobinhood vote that’s got XVG as a top contender for a listing in the next round. The same is true of cryptocurrency exchange FatBTC. The coin is already available on Binance and it’s also being added to a number of online outlets as a payment option. It also just picked up a listing on CoinDirect.

Bottom line is this: Privacy coins are going to take the world by storm during 2018 – you can take that statement to the bank. And of those top contenders on the market right now, Verge is the only one that runs a protocol like Wraith and, for us, that puts it at the top of the pile.

Combine this long-term view with a few near-term catalysts and underline it with the fact that the coin is currently available at a 74% discount to highs and you’ve got a winner.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021



WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

The Pros And Cons Of Cryptocurrency




Many facets of our lives are now digitized––money is no exception. 

Have you noticed that paper money is on its way to being obsolete because so many people receive direct deposit and love the simplicity of their debit card? 

Not to mention, cash carries germs, as we’ve heard lots about during the pandemic. Many businesses have turned to card only options in light of this. 

But what about cryptocurrency?

You probably heard everyone raving about it a few years ago, but the excitement’s calmed down quite a bit. That doesn’t mean that it’s not a viable option you should keep in mind. 

What’s Cryptocurrency? 

Let’s start with the basic definition of cryptocurrency so we’re all on the same page. Cryptocurrency utilizes cryptographic methods and complex coding systems to encrypt sensitive information during data transfers. This protects your funds and personal information on a whole different level. 

These transactions are virtually impenetrable due to the combination of mathematical and technological protocols created and put in place. This aspect of cryptocurrency is what makes it safer. Also, the details of transactions are kept private. No one can see who sent what, etc., because those rigorous mathematical and technological protocols protect it.

The Pros: 

Different From Traditional Banking Transactions

One thing people hate about traditional banks is the fact that they can…

As Global Tensions Grow, Bitcoin Price May Go Higher



BTC Surged Again as A Safe Haven Asset During Global Tensions

  • India – China Border Conflict

After weeks of squabbling and brawling along their long-disputed border, hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a deadly clash Monday in a river valley that’s part of the region of Ladakh last week. Troops had massed on both sides of the border in recent months in the northern India region of Ladakh and the southwestern Chinese region of Aksai Chin, causing global concerns of a potential escalation between the two.

  • North and South Korea Clash

Last Tuesday, North Korea destroyed the liaison office it jointly operates with South Korea in the city of Kaesong, just north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries. 

North Korea also said it would send troops to now-shuttered joint cooperation sites on its territory, reinstall guard posts and resume military drills at front-line areas in a violation of separate 2018 deals with South Korea. Jeong said South Korea will take “immediate, swift and corresponding” steps to any North Korean provocation.

The tensions grown in Asia and the potential “second wave” of coronavirus in the United States may add more difficulties to the global economic recovery. Thus, Bitcoin, as a safe haven asset, attracts more investors to buy and hold.
