Why Verge (XVG) Should Still Be On Your Crypto Investment Radar




The Verge (XVG) protocol has been hacked twice with the hackers managing to mint XVG from thin air. There has been a public outcry even after the recent software patch of the latest hack was announced via Twitter. The XVG team member in charge of marketing and operations, Kriss Chase, made the announcement on his Twitter page as follows:

“A patch has been deployed on Github (10 hours ago). Update has been successfully pushed to [GitHub]. Please keep in mind process to reactivating exchanges etc. may still take some time.”

The response was positive from the Verge family in terms of the XVG development team working fast to resolve the issues. However, concerns still linger as to whether the new patch would be sufficient to sort out the timestamp issue that had led to a rogue miner ‘back-dating’ the timing on blocks to fool the mining protocol.

These are genuine concerns, but there is no software project that has not had teething problems. The Mac, PC, Android Phone or iPhone you are using, has had its rough days in terms of having a functional operating system that still has vulnerabilities that are yet to be discovered. All it takes is some rogue hacker to put some time in it and find such a vulnerability.

Therefore, XVG should still be in your Crypto Investment Radar.

As a matter of fact, this is the best time to buy some XVG in bulk as everyone heads to the hills by cashing out their XVG vault of coins.

Current market analysis indicates that the coin has dropped to the number 32 slot according to XVG is currently trading at under 5 cents and down 2.29% in 24 hours. The current general market decline is also to blame for the dip in the value of not only XVG to current levels of $0.0414 but the entire crypto-market that has seen BTC go below the $7,500 mark.

One thing to look forward to and with respect to XVG is the anticipated collaboration with TokenPay (TPAY). Both these projects have been collaborating on a lot lately. They have jointly organized a meetup in Amsterdam this June and will be listed together on the same day on a new exchange that is in its ICO phase called CurrenX. Another rumor that might materialize, is the XVG debit cards supported by TokenPay.

Therefore, and in conclusion, XVG still has some promise once the coin and project work past the current FUD that is the hack of its protocol. Meanwhile, if you are a shrewd investor, it might be time to buy in during the proverbial dip experienced by XVG.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited ( ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub ( ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?



2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
