Verge XVG mass adoption
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

Verge (XVG) has become one of the best-known cryptocurrencies over the last sixty days, especially when their mystery partnership  (on April 17th) became public. It was a MindGeek‘s partnership that allowed XVG to become a payment method for Pornhub. While this was very misunderstood, it left no doubts that it was profitable for both parties, especially Verge, as it can only increase XVG’s exposure and demand.

The current market trend is bringing XVG down against the dollar, as it went down by 19% in last seven days. But Verge is focusing on making sure its coin and technology are adopted massively. Let’s have a look at how they are going about that.

Verge’s listing announcement on BiteBTC

The XVG team announced a couple of days ago, via their official Twitter account that the XVG cryptocurrency will be listed on BiteBTC, an influential exchange market.

The team also announced that XVG would be ready for live trading and investing starting from May 10th as it becomes part of the BiteBTC market listing.

Any coin listed in a new exchange will always bring trading volume and exposure, which is why this is an exciting development for Verge. It’s expected that XVG will grow in value soon.

All the previously mentioned reasons strongly suggest that XVG’s value will rise soon as the market’s current trend gets worn out and most of the crypto coins start to trade in the green once again (that’s already started, in fact).

Verge XVG Debit Cards

A little over two weeks ago, TokenPay proclaimed they would be buying 9.9% fo shares of a Bavarian German bank. The point in this is to issue debit cards on cryptocurrencies. Then TokenPay announced that their first choice for that would be XVG.

This is no surprise at all. TokenPay supported XVG during their first crowdfunding campaign. They endorsed XVG on their first crowdfunding campaign and the keep the support going until the MindGeek partnership became a reality.

It’s no surprise at all for TPAY to choose Verge as the first alt-coin to become available through a debit card issued by the bank. Token pay gave XVG a lot of support during their initial crowdfunding effort. Their continued support also allowed Verge to get the Pornhub partnership that made them the talk of the town.

The deal is done as confirmed by a Verge’s official tweet a couple of days ago. The German bank was mentioned so those debit cards will be available quite soon.

Verge on FLOGmall

Verge (XVG) had further good news for fans when they announced on Twitter they will be a payment method for Flogmail from May 10th.

Flogmail is a quite new player in the e-commerce world that takes in all kinds of currencies, Verge’s XVG being the most recent one. It provides electronic trade services that connect buyers and sellers painlessly enabling both of them to complete each transaction in a variety of options.

This move is maybe not as bit as Pornhub, but every move Verge makes to make it a real and practical payment method for average users is a smart move. At the very least it gives them exposure.

Verge and the market now

The market had a bit of a break on May 9th. Most currencies dropped a bit, and Verge went with the trend. As of today, Verge lost 19.72% against the dollar in last seven days, which is a bit steep. It also lost about 12% against Bitcoin.

Green bars are starting to build in the market, Verge’s XVG also increased in value by 4% in last twenty hours. This all means that right now Verge’s XVG currency is available at $0.06 per unit, which is very low if you take into account it’s been as high as $0.22. Still, that’s actually good news for the investors – this is the time to get it in bulk.

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.

Mission Statement

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,…

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.

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…
