Verge (XVG) Just Had Its First Successful Crowdfunding Campaign




Verge has been around since 2014 when it was first launched as an ICO, and still, we haven’t seen any improvement or groundbreaking changes regarding this currency – at least not until now as Verge just had its first successful crowdfunding campaign. Although the official Verge Twitter account tweeted about the crowdfunding campaign days ago in a way that can be categorized as a bit peculiar, it seems that the team behind Verge and its currency managed to collect the set amount of XVG in the given deadline thanks to the devoted holders and investors. How is Verge doing at the current moment and are there any novelties revolving around the future of Verge?

Verge and the Crowdfunding Campaign

Days ago, it was announced via official Verge Twitter account that a crowdfunding campaign would take place, starting from March 20th. The original tweet stated that the team will unlock and unveil a mystery partnership in case the goal of collecting 75 million XVG is reached. The tweet appeared more as a click-bait add than announcement as the tone of the tweet was overhyping and even sounding desperate from several angles – Verge’s team was even ridiculed for asking for donations, turning the tables to appear as if they were beginning for donations in order to boost the value of XVG in the time of a massive market dip that was actively ravaging the crypto market, eventually taking billions from the total market cap of all currencies put together. The losses were massive, but the market is slowly recovering and hopefully entering April of 2018 with the majority of currencies trading in the green in the moment of this writing, on March 31st, 2018.

However, despite being ridiculed for asking for donations, Verge managed to collect all 75 million XVG within the course of only 7 days, which naturally increased the number of circulating coins, the trading volume and the market capitalization of Verge.

To reward the faithful investors and holders who helped achieve this goal and pull off their first successful crowdfunding campaign, the team behind Verge and XVG released an official video. The video stated that the mystery partner will be revealed in a couple of weeks on April 16th of 2018 to be exact, when another marketing campaign will also take place.

In the video, Verge also stated that the new marketing campaign will be conducted on the global level with a refreshed look, and could possibly in their opinion change the way cryptocurrencies and the world of crypto values are viewed upon. Big promises from an altcoin – can the team behind Verge pull a marketing campaign of such proportions?

With newly collected 75 million XVG it surely can. Not only that Verge demonstrated the strength of crypto community but it also managed to complete their goal of collecting the amount of XVG they needed in the given time, which only took them 7 days.

The crowdfunding campaign is still open so any further donations will be likewise welcome. However, Verge probably wouldn’t be able to collect all 75 million XVG in the course of 7 days with having only micro investors on the board, so they found their Angel Investor in a new currency called TokenPay. TokenPay invested in 66.5 million XVG, so the majority of bought XVG for the completion of the original crowdfunding goal was actually purchased by TokenPay.

The team behind TokenPay state that this currency is “the world’s most secure coin” and it is currently listed on

Now when Verge is actually taking steps towards implementing changes and improvements the expectations all holders and investors have are probably high, so the team behind XVG will surely need to step up their game as April 16th is slowly approaching.

Verge Listed on another Exchange

It seems that fortune just like misfortune, is never alone, so Verge has good news. XVG is now listed on NexExchange. Having been listed on another exchange platform is a big deal because that means that the visibility and availability of XVG tokens is now broadened, which will greatly contribute to its further progress. On NexExchange you can buy XVG directly by using your bank account, so Verge just got more attainable as well, which should also affect its price in a positive way.

As we are waiting for mid-April, Verge has announced the release of iOS wallet without mentioning the date of launching, along with announcing new projects that could potentially sky-rocket this currency. One of the announced projects is planning and launching an XVG debit card partnered up with TokenPay. As Verge is being wakened up from a long hibernation, it seems that there is yet a bright future for this currency, at least based on its active efforts and the announced projects.

How is Verge doing at the Current Moment?

Ranked as a 26th currency on the global coin ranking list, Verge is going through some positive changes lately, given the fact that Verge managed to host and complete its first successful crowdfunding ever.

After the latest change in the market, it seems that the majority of currencies that suffered from great losses are starting to trade up as we are entering April, and Verge is not an exception.

In the last 24 hours, XVG had a rise of 10% against the dollar and it is still trading in the green. After the most recent positive change in its price, XVG is now being traded at 0.039$ – a price still far from a one dollar price per one unit. However, it seems that XVG will soon be able to reach a higher price and stay there with all the novelties and changes being announced along with the mystery partnership. For starters, we are curious to find out who is behind the mystery partnership, which should be revealed on April 16th.

KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents




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.

KaratGold Background

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges




Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share




When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
