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 ListICO.io.
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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
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.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

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…
