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.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
