When Will Verge (XVG) Rise Above $0.20 Again?

Most of the most valuable cryptocurrency options on the market are still in the red today, and Verge (XVG) is no exception. At the time of writing, this coin is trading at $0.154. That’s a 5.6% drop from its price a day ago. Looking back a week, its price has plummeted 16.2% lower.

But Verge (XVG), in our opinion, is on an upward trajectory that isn’t showing signs of letting up anytime soon. In the past month, its price has gained a whopping 1,564%! The past week seems more like a hiccup than a nosedive from that perspective.

This crypto coin’s growth story has been strong, it’s true – but this financial product’s technology is only going to drive its price even higher. Especially in the first 11 days of January, a lot of stuff has been happening with this altcoin and the blockchain technology behind it.

Verge (XVG) Is A Cryptocurrency That’s Embracing Anonymity in a New Way

This coin is one of the rising altcoins that have taken anonymity to the next level. The original idea behind Bitcoin (BTC), the original cryptocurrency, was to have a decentralized way to transfer funds anonymously over the internet with no government regulation involved. But, as many cryptocurrency traders have found out by now, the original promise of BTC hasn’t quite been fulfilled.

Bitcoin transactions are slow, expensive – and not totally anonymous. These days, it’s not so hard to find out which bitcoin wallet address belongs to which user. There are organizations all over the world tracking and analyzing the decentralized ledger’s data. True privacy and anonymity simply can’t be guaranteed with Bitcoin’s technology.

That’s where altcoins like XVG come into the picture. Verge has developed a system that makes its transactions untraceable. By using both Tor and I2P, transaction data bounces around from server to server all over the world. With little pieces of information being dropped off and picked up along the way, it’s impossible to find out which address was the source or destination.

And Verge (XVG) Has (Finally) Launched Its Wraith Protocol Update Successfully

Since December, we have been waiting for a pretty impressive update in the XVG network. It’s called the Wraith Protocol. Whereas Verge previously had just a private, anonymous ledger where transactions were anonymous. Now, however, users have a choice. They can have their transfer be on a public ledger whenever they want.

It’s an on-demand option. When you are setting up a transaction, you can decide whether it will be anonymous or public each time. You don’t have to have it 100% either way – it’s much more flexible.

The launch was supposed to be on New Year’s Day, but there were some problems. The rollout ended up being delayed, and was released in pieces. But, as of yesterday, the Mac compatible wallet is now available with the on-or-off anonymity option. It was made available on Windows on January 8th.

It’s also the first cryptocurrency to ever offer such a thing. With so many competing altcoins that don’t have options with as much flexibility, this impressive new feature will certainly attract a lot of crypto investors to Verge.

The non-stop upward trajectory looks like it’s going to keep on chugging along.

  1. Verge is a bad investment. Dev team is young, inexperienced, and one of them lives in a basement that almost got destroyed along with the data when a Hurricane hit.

    • This is not true at all. The lead dev has over fifteen years of experience working as a security drone for some of the biggest corporations. More over, while he was hit by the hurricane, this doesn’t mean he was living in his basement. Both by occupation and having invested in the crypto space since 2011, it’s pretty safe to surmise that at this point he motivated more so by activism than financial incentive. If you took the time to watch an interview with him that would be readily apparent.

    • Wrong. They have over 35+ contributors on the github project, some who have came from triple A companies to be part of an idea. They have a working wallet and an actual product that does what it says it does. This is the only crypto that has the flexibility of complete privacy or running public. All other currencies are one or the other.

      Say what you want about the dev team, but they still have a product that is unique and will only get better with upcoming RSK smart contracts and a mobile wallet.

      Bad investment? There are other privacy coins out there worth anywhere from $10 – $1000 and XVG is floating around $0.15 for an actual product that provides not only privacy but the option to go public. Not to mention other privacy coins have been debunked w/ IP leaks.

      Verge is the first to give users an OPTION and provide true anonymity.

    • What data would get destroyed? The code is right here: https://github.com/vergecurrency
      On another note, someone being young and living in a basement doesn’t compute to their ideas and/or quality of work being poor. That’s an ad hominem and no one should take it as helpful investment advice.

    • Verge is a great investment. Main dev is 38 years old, with many years of experience in blockchain and 20 years as network security specialist. The last 3 years he and other developers have been developing this crypto, based and improved upon the bitcoin blockchain. It embodies the total concept of Satoshi Nakamoto’s original Bitcoin vision, being a daily peer-2-peer fast transaction currency, with low fees and respect for user privacy.

    • So was Apple and Microsoft. Extreme examples but that proves my point – appearances aren’t everything. And how much “experience” can you have with something as infantile as blockchain?

    • Your statement makes no sense at all. Amazon, Apple, Disney and many more successful and market changing projects started out in a garage. If you do your research you will find out that the Verge is a very profitable investment (already made 800%+ on it myself) and it’s still rising.

  2. Verge is a Good investment … privacy will be a demanding solution and Verge gives you the option to keep your anonymity to the highest level. There is no other coins that has establishid this as also the stealth address protocol you all must read about. You want to be a millionaire you better invest in Verge as it will skyrocket by the end of 2018.

  3. Dear Brian,

    You’re quite mistaken and possibly requiring head surgery for bloviating and pontificating about something which you know nothing about.

    XVG is the next BTC.

    XVG IS what BTC should have been, but isn’t.

    XVG is under accumulation.

    XVG is volatile.

    So get in now while it’s +/- $.15
