When buying cryptocurrencies, the biggest question, or maybe a choice, that the investors are facing is which crypto to go for. Many of them that seem popular at some point usually end up crashing down and disappearing from the market.

Others and this mostly goes for the big names, can handle the market crash, but have a lot of other issues that need taking care of. However, there is one that seems exceptionally stable, and its very nature shows that it has a future. We are, of course, talking about Verge (XVG).

Why should you buy Verge?

There are many reasons why Verge is the best bet for investors, especially those who are looking to be in the crypto game for a while.

Verge uses open-source software, and a lot of experts, including John McAfee, agree that it is the best one when it comes to anonymity and security.

As a comparison, those who invested in Ethereum (ETH) had a very tough time after it was hacked, and their tokens just disappeared from their wallets. Security is one of the biggest concerns for crypto users, and Verge has got that covered.

Next thing to point out is that Verge is among the most stable cryptos on the market. This especially goes when it comes to giants like ETH and BTC. True, it also suffered losses when the prices of cryptos dropped at the beginning of 2018, but it suffered much less than some other cryptos.

It is also an efficient choice since it is accepted by a lot of exchanges, even though that might not include the biggest ones, or at least not yet. There were cases of a massive rise in the value of cryptos after some of those big exchanges decide to enlist them, so getting XVG tokens before this happens is a brilliant thing to do.

Another thing that might soon elevate the price of Verge includes its total circulatory supply. It has around 13.5 billion coins currently released, but its set maximum is 16.5 billion. That means that it might soon reach this number, which will impact its price a lot since you will only be able to get it from exchanges or other holders.

Verge to stick despite the bans on anonymous trading

Earlier this year, South Korea decided that it doesn’t like the idea of private blockchain and anonymous trading of cryptos. Private blockchains allow for users to remain anonymous during their transactions, which is different from the way the more-favorable public blockchains work. Because of this, it is expected that private blockchains will, at some point, disappear entirely.

However, Verge has a way around it, thanks to the Wraith Protocol. Basically, this protocol connects two parties by forming a link between them.

That way, you can make both, private and public transactions if you are using Verge as your chosen crypto. A protocol like this has the potential to make Verge compatible with similar regulations that might come in the future, and yet, it still allows for users to have their privacy when it comes to more delicate transactions.

Choosing Verge is becoming more and more practical. It definitely allows for some extra security, but also for anonymity, should the need arise. The benefits are enormous, which is why you should consider getting some of the tokens before the next massive increase in price. Naturally, there are never guarantees when it comes to cryptos. All we can talk about is their potential, and potential is one thing that Verge does not lack.

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
