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.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
