Verge (XVG) disappointed many with the token price after revealing partnerships with Brazzers, PornHub, and other companies. However, the team behind it is still ready to make new progress and suffers no setbacks.

TokenPay’s plans for the future

Recently, TokenPay mentioned that the new partnership with Verge might soon come to pass, and it might also bring even the XVG debit cards.

A recent tweet by TokenPay states that they signed a bank deal in Germany, which supposedly happened weeks before it was expected. They also said that closing is to happen soon, probably before the following weekend. However, it will be followed by an official announcement. Finally, the tweet also mentioned that XVG and TPAY debit cards should be expected soon.

When it comes to TPAY, this is an anonymous and a very secure blockchain project that came from TokenPay’s ecosystem. Initially, the platform only consisted of a P2P transactional system which guaranteed anonymity. This very system is what will make use of TPAY tokens, which will be the exchange’s base model.

According to the team, transfers from one wallet to another can be done in an instant, and all it takes is about two seconds for the process to be completed. The network on which it is done is a TOR network which is also driven by a blockchain. The desktop wallets allow for staking coins, as well as receiving rewards, and the very act of staking will be the power of the decentralized network. It is also the reason for the speed of transactions.

An additional statement from the team says that there are currently tens of thousands of individuals who are committed to staking TPAY. Their numbers are growing on a daily basis, and one reason or this is that TPAY is currently the only one with a proof-of-stake Android wallet for Bitcoin on the market. Not only that, but the team is also working on developing a version of it for iOS users too.

The goal here is to make the trade be as automatic as it possibly can through a decentralized exchange. Along with that, they are including an atomic swaps support, which will include BTC, TPAY, EFIN, and XVG.

Both sides can benefit

Regarding the partnership between TokenPay and Verge, TokenPay stated that they already contributed around 66,500,000 XVG. This was given to the crowdfunding campaign that Verge runs so that the major coin deal and partnership between the two entities will be beneficial for both of them, as well as their communities.

The mutual goal here is for them to become one of the 10 biggest contenders in the world’s crypto market, and both teams are dedicated to reaching this goal. Additional information about the partnership will be released publically, but for now, it is known that the alliance will include both XVG and TPAY debit cards.

Another tweet by TokenPay stated that in their search for transparency, they wish to inform their community on every step of the way. Because of that, they promised more information after the transfer of shares. The important thing here is that the deal was already signed.

There was also a tweet from XVG core team member, Cees Van Dam. Van Dam said that Verge always delivers, even though they can be a bit late sometimes. All that the team needs currently is the community’s patience, and everything will come in due time.

Verge can now also be found on BitPro, and it is available for trading, along with additional 11 cryptos. XVG’s current price is at about $0.072, which is due to a 12% increase that happened in the last 24 hours. Its market cap is estimated to be at $1.076 billion, which ranks Verge at the 25th place.

A Twitterati, Vegan Folkert, stated that Verge is advancing rapidly with these partnerships and integrations.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
