Verge is among the few blockchain-based cryptocurrency that emphasizes on an entirely anonymous and secure transaction for its users. Multiple anonymity-centric networks have played a significant role in achieving this.

It was originally developed in 2014 and given the name DogeCoinDark (it’s however not related to the Dogecoin), it is only last year that it was rebranded to Verge.

Its unique technology is actually what attracted investors, most of whom prioritize privacy.

So, how does the Verge Technology Work?

Having been improved and integrated with the Wraith Protocol technology, verge users are now able to effortlessly switch between private and public ledgers on the Verge blockchain.

Before this, private and public ledgers were mutually selected, meaning that they could not co-exist on a very similar blockchain. But investors are today free to use whatever ledger they want.

A good example was when Wraith Protocol switched ON – one will not be able to view the transaction data, not even via the blockchain explorer. In instances where lucidity is desirable, Wraith Protocol will be switched OFF automatically – revealing the transaction data on the public ledger.

Additionally, Verge makes obscure the IP addresses in both instances. When coupled with Wraith Protocol Verge certainly becomes the only undetectable cryptocurrency.

Lastly, Verges offers five different Proof-of-Work algorithms for mining. They include; Lyra2rev2, Scrypt, X17, blake2s and myr-groestl. Offering a choice of five different algorithms promotes inclusion, since a wider variety of users will now have an opportunity to not only mine but influence the network. Should one algorithm demand greater mining resources, users get an option of just switching to a different one.

How to Buy?

As indicated on its authorized website, interested investors are advised to choose from a list of highly regarded exchanges like Bittrex when buying verge coins.

Android users are privileged as they can always Verge on the move and receive or send coins using the verge wallet application on their mobile phones.

Benefits of using Verge Coin

As mentioned earlier, Verge is basically about security and maintaining user anonymity just like Monero; so that is its latent upside. Many investors are also applauding its unique technology.

Additionally, transactions on Verge are very fast, comparatively speaking. This is made possible by a Verification technology that ensures the completion of most transactions processed through Verge’s blockchain in less than five seconds.

Conclusion

It’s not a secret that Verge is making incredibly significant moves at the moment. It was recently added to Godex – another exchange which is amongst the coins that are top contenders to getting listed on Cobin Hood’s crypto trading platform. If by any chance the South Korean market resumes to the crypto space then huge numbers of crypto investors previously affected by the government’s decision to freeze crypto accounts will certainly be looking for dependable anonymous coins and of course Verge is set to top the list. Well, we only have to wait and see. Meanwhile, a trusted source has revealed that extra launches and announcements as well as external financial inspection on the coin, will be made this year.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
