Verge seemed to be doing more than then well as XVG, along with the majority of currencies in the market, was trading in the green while trying to draw a rebound out of the latest dip that lasted for more than eight weeks. However, the thing that placed Verge in the spotlight of today’s news from the cryptoverse is the fact that TokenPay has just signed a deal with a German bank. Thanks to this deal made by TokenPay, Verge will make it to the new level of exposure and mass adoption with XVG debit cards being released pretty soon. Let’s go through the details revolving around this deal, as well as to analyze potential gains for Verge in this story.
How Verge Found Support in TokenPay
Verge seems to have found an amazing ally in TokenPay, as TokenPay even supported XVG in the crowdfunding campaign they have launched in order to collect 75 million XVG for the purpose of acquiring a very important partnership that later on turned out to be the start of an important collaboration between MindGeek and Verge.
This partnership will lead Verge towards being used as a payment method on one of the largest adult entertainment platforms, Pornhub.
When asked about the reason for aiding Verge in acquiring this partnership, TokenPay representatives stated that the further step and their collaboration with Verge on their next project depend partially on the funded partnership.
Later on, we were able to find out that TokenPay was planning on buying off 9.9% of a German bank located in Munich, which would lead to the next stage of crypto mass adoption.
Just like XVG found a real-life purpose and application with MindGeek partnership, that is exactly how the mass adoption process for XVG would be further supported by TokenPay and the German bank project.
TokenPay representatives also explained how they are planning on buying off the mentioned percentage of shares in this bank so they would be able to launch crypto debit cards. Verge (XVG) would be the first currency to get its debit card with TokenPay and this project.
Litecoin, as concluded from the recent live tweet session between TokenPay and Litecoin, should probably be the second crypto to get its debit card with TokenPay.
TokenPay Announces Verge Debit Card
TokenPay has announced today, via their official Twitter account, that they have officially signed the deal with the mentioned German bank. Further, in the tweet, they have stated that they have managed to get the deal signed a couple of weeks before the initial deadline. They are now expecting to officially seal the debit card deal by the end of the next week, which would be the first week of May.
The statement also included the announcement that TPAY and XVG will very soon get their own debit cards.
This is an amazing move, both for TPAY and XVG, as both of these digital assets have managed to acquire a direct gateway towards the mainstream waters of global payments.
It is expected, due to this case, to see a consequent rise in the trading volume of Verge units.
How is Verge doing at the Current Moment?
Although the majority of currencies are rising in accordance with the latest market trend, it seems that XVG is having a rough time as this currency is trading in the red at the current moment.
Following the latest change in the market, Verge has gone through a drop against the dollar, which means that XVG just went down for -4.48% against this fiat currency. In addition to the mentioned drop, XVG is also trading in the red against BTC for -4.08%.
Even though the deal between the mentioned German bank and TokenPay has been officially confirmed with XVG waiting for its debit card, there still hasn’t been a positive reaction in the market.
However, it is expected to see Verge surging once the cards are officially issued. At the same time, XVG will be entering a radical mass adoption phase, that way being sky-rocketed and introduced to the mainstream waters of global payments.
After the latest change in the market, Verge can be traded at the price of 0.068$ per one unit, which is still far from its all-time high of around 0.22$ per one XVG as recorded back at the end of December of 2017.

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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
