Verge (XVG) is Asking for Donations to Unfold a Mystery Partnership

Verge was one of the currencies that started out this week with some major gains. That is how XVG managed to rise up from the market dip with gaining over 22% on its price in the course of only 245 hours. But, as Verge started to trade in the red again as the end of this week on Sunday, March 25th, we are focusing on XVG’s latest move – asking for donations in order to reveal a mystery partnership. Sounds strange? Let’s see how is Verge doing at the current moment and find out what the mysterious partnership is all about.

Verge and the Latest Announcements

Maybe one of the biggest reasons for having Verge growing promptly in its price might be the fact that the dev team behind XVG has had some major announcements during the past week that obviously caught investors’ attention.

However, the news we picked up don’t seem so positive at all – it rather seemed like an attempt of over-hyping the importance of the released announcements.

From the technical point of view, Verge has a lot to offer to the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology thanks to its newest addition, Wraith Protocol. Wraith Protocol allows users to easily switch from operating with data on a public ledger with data operations on a private ledger on Verge’s blockchain system. That means that users can choose for the first time whether they want their data visible on the public ledger or only accessible on a private ledger. In case data transfer demands transparency, users can easily switch Wraith Protocol off and have their data visible through the public ledger.

Moreover, more and more people are accepting XVG as a form of payment, so Verge seems to be doing pretty well in general.

Verge is a currency with 555$ million in market capitalization, so it is a bit strange how their public relations agents are promoting a crowdfunding campaign. On March 19th, Verge announced via its official Twitter account that they are launching a crowdfunding campaign. In this statement, Verge team announced that they need to collect funds so they would be able to implement some very important elements regarding Verge’s system.

It is almost unbelievable how Verge is asking for donations from their holders and investors when it is clear that this currency has a market cap of half billion dollars and without clearly stating what they need donations for. In the first announcement they have made regarding the case of organizing a crowdfunding campaign, they only mentioned that they need to implement some important elements. No detailed info about the “elements” was provided.

Although many holders and investors were hooked, many holders showed their negative surprise through Reddit threads, unable to understand how is Verge able to ask for donations with 555$ million in market cap when there are tons of “small” weak coins out there and yet their teams are not asking for donations.

Soon after this announcement, Verge started to rise in its price, so it seems that the announcement they have made a week ago did have a strong influence on XVG fans.

Three days later after the first announcement where Verge was asking for donations, XVG released another tweet. In this tweet, they have released another call for action once again asking for donations.

Only this time, they included a mystery partnership that should only be revealed if the holders manage to help them collect 74 million XVG during the course of only 4 days. Verge has announced on this occasion that they will be revealing the name of the company on Monday, March 26th in case that 75 million XVG are collected by that time.

Immediately after the announcement was released on Twitter, XVG started to rise dizzily. The announcement also stated that the partnership that will be potentially revealed on Monday is the biggest partnership in the crypto world to date.

Does this seem like an honest invitation for investors to join new ventures for their favorite coin or does it sound more like over-hyping news made to collect more XVG in the shortest period of time possible?

With a risk to sound too criticizing towards a coin that is actually worth a lot in the technological sense, it seems that Verge is using over-hype strategy in order to sell as much XVG as possible.

The most important thing, in this case, is that there are lots of Verge fans raging on Twitter and Reddit while openly showing their disappointment in their favorite coin due to the latest announcements that seem like a desperate attempt to collect funds.

Whatever the case, dev teams behind cryptocurrencies should definitely keep their partnerships transparent to the public or at least to their investors and holders instead of using a mystery partnership in an over-hyping tone for collecting profit.

Even though if it’s true that none of the dev team members has anything from XVG or even owns XVG while having none of the profit being collected by having XVG sold, why would they use mystery partnerships for collecting money without providing any information crucial for the crowdfunding project?

How is Verge doing at the Current Moment?

After a pretty good week where Verge managed to pull off getting out of the market crisis with up to 22% of rises in the course of only 24 hours, XVG seems to be losing some of that velocity as it started to drop down on March 25th at the end of a very prosperous week.

After the latest change in its price, XVG is now being traded in the red with having a drop of -2.88%.

At the current moment, XVG is trading in the red and can be bought for 0.041$ per one unit, which still makes it a solid good investment for investors and holders of all profiles.

However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

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.
