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.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
