With the latest rise in prices after a prolonged downtrend, Verge (XVG) has finally started to show some improvement gaining over 7% in the course of the last 24 hours.

After the talked-about semi-fiasco that came as a part of Verge/Brazzers/Pornhub love triangle, where XVG lost a great part of its popularity by not managing to prove to the community that MindGeek partnership that brought them to Pornhub in the first place, was actually worth 75 million XVG.

At last, a couple of days ago Verge currency shared a couple of announcements from their official Twitter account, announcing a potential deal for RSK integration as well as announcing the new GUI miner for mining XVG.

Verge Releases the Announced GUI Miner

Approximately a week after the original announcement that Verge is preparing to release a new friendly GUI miner that would improve the security as well as the efficiency of the mining process involving XVG, the new GUI miner was released to the public.

The official announcement that confirmed the final release of the miner beta version came on June 25th, not long after the user-friendly miner was announced.

Verge seems to be literally on the verge of making something out of what they have since it seems to be turning out that Pornhub partnership wasn’t as welcomes into the community as expected. At least not welcomed at the price it came as a partner to Verge community.

So, this GUI miner might be just the right thing to provide the needed push to XVG.

The new miner was released for Windows operative system while the OS version is still to come out. GridcoreGFX was the main supporter as well as the developer of the newly released miner, also making a strong supporter of XVG.

Upon the release, there was already a crowd of XVG miners waiting to try out the latest miner for mining XVG, so you can see that the newly added thread on  Reddit as a support for this topic was pretty trending.

While some of the Redditors complained about not having the miner made open source, other Redditors complied stating that having this miner open source would make it vulnerable with attackers, explaining the reason why the new GUI miner was not made to be open source.

In the meanwhile, the reviewers of the newly released miner for XVG described the miner in their feedback as pretty smooth and easy to use in the domain of the interface, which was obviously designed with a purpose of being user-friendly while providing a smooth experience.

The new miner enables XVG miners to choose an algorithm of choice prior to starting a mining session, alongside with providing an ecosystem for miners that doesn’t require many setups, that way making it simple.

However, it is said that although the new GUI miner has as little setup as possible alongside with user-friendly interface, it still has flaws in terms of sometimes losing hash power as well as not providing thread options.

Balancing sides between occasional unavailability of mining serves and providing users with easy-to-use tools for mining the new XVG miner still makes up for a solid miners’ bay.

Verge has also had many issues with hack attacks, with the last one taking place not that long ago while taking away 35 million XVG units, which probably shook the trust of investors they have had placed in Verge currency.

By creating a more secure environment for miners, XVG might get a solid chance of increasing the level of security, that way preventing attacks in the future.

Verge (XVG) Performance

The market showed a strong sign of recovery on June 25th, when the majority of currencies started to go up with Verge taking over 6% against the dollar. The date also marked the official release of the XVG new GUI miner, introducing XVG to another benevolent day in the market.

More than 90% of the currencies are going up today as well, however in a more modest manner while barely going over 1% against the dollar.

In the last 24 hours, XVG went up by 1.97% while being traded at the price of 0.023$.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

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…
