Verge (XVG) Cryptocurrency Review

The Verge project is entirely open source and community led. There is no company or foundation behind Verge. The community is committed to privacy, anonymity, and decentralization.

Verge is a cryptocurrency designed for people and for everyday use. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain and aims to fulfill its initial purpose of providing individuals and businesses with a fast, efficient and decentralized way of making direct transactions while maintaining your privacy.

The coin originally began as DogeCoinDark in 2014. In February 2016, wanting to distance themselves from both the Doge meme and the “dark” connotation, DogeCoinDark rebranded to Verge. Over the past two years, the project has set a trajectory toward legitimacy for mass market adoption.

RISK WARNING: YOUR CAPITAL MIGHT BE AT RISK

The mission is to empower people around the world by bringing blockchain transactions into everyday life. Verge Currency makes it possible to engage in direct transactions quickly, efficiently and privately. With Verge Currency, businesses and individuals have flexible options for sending and receiving payments. With the flip of a switch, Verge offer helpful integrations and tools that enable them to handle large scale transactions between merchants and small scale private payments.

Verge utilizes the Electrum wallet, originally designed for Bitcoin. Electrum supports Tor and I2P integration. It also allows for secure offline storage of tokens. When you need to send XVG, you can sign the transaction with your private key offline.

Verge will also support two Android wallets. One for Tor and another for I2P. These mobile wallets include security measures like PIN codes and biometric locking. They also support QR codes to pull balances from paper wallets.
