While April was a good month for most crypto-coins, it was a particularly excellent and momentous period for Verge (XVG). New partnerships where announced, it’s been traded in the green for most of the month and the last two weeks have been quite exceptional.
The month’s main event was the announcement of a new partnership with MindGeek that will allow XVG to become a payment method for Pornhub, one of the world’s most abundant adult entertainment in the world. After the deal was kept mysterious for some time, the revelation made the coin soar after April 17th.
Let’s see in more detail how Verge performed last month, in April.
Verge and the Market in April
Verge’s performance against the dollar has been incredible. It went up by 25% during April’s thirty days (and the figure has been 67% over the last 60 days). Most impressive has been the full year’s increase which is currently at 94000%. That is nothing short of fabulous, and it has turned XVG into one of the most sought coins in the market.
Verge and Spotify
Once the XVG community came out with the idea of partnering with Spotify they’ve been working hard to make it happen. A vote will decide if Spotify should adopt Verge (XVG) as a payment method. It allows for all interested parties to cast a vote.
It seems it all started when an XVG volunteer excited the Spotify’s community curiosity precisely by suggesting the creation of a voting poll.
The polling has been going on for about two weeks now, and it is still active on Spotify’s community webpage. It’s had more than three thousand votes in favor so far.
While the coin is still in the air, a partnership between Verge and Spotify is an exciting prospect, and the idea is becoming more popular chronologically.
Verge and TrafficJunky
The MindGeek partnership also opened the way for Verge to do business with TrafficJunky, which will also be important. It seems like a natural step forward since PornHub is one of TrafficJunky’s affiliates.
TrafficJunky is among the world’s leading marketing services. It gives each client an individual, unique, and customized approach that answers to every customer’s wishes, needs, and resources.
TrafficJunky’s immense popularity (over a billion daily hits) and expertise in marketing will also provide XVG with much more exposure. Both firms joined forces last May 4th, and it’s expected to be very beneficial for them. Verge will provide means to fund TrafficJunky’s user accounts.
Currently, most coins have been trading in the green (again) for sustained periods of time, so the market is thriving, and Verge’s XVG is a crucial part of that. In compliance to last 24 hours, It also has been trading on the green (7.1% increase in value) and rising against both the dollar and Bitcoin.
The latest status is that Verge’s current price is $0.0753 per token, which could seem low taking into account it’s been as high as $0.22 in the past. But if it keeps performing as it has, it will reach new heights sooner rather than later.

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
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.”
