Verge (XVG) is one of the most talked about privacy-based cryptocurrencies right now and for good reason. It's value is rocketing at the moment following an announcement by Justin Sunerok, creator and lead developer on the Verge project, confirming a game-changing partnership that will be revealed to the public soon.
Verge has become extremely popular due to its high speed transactions, Wraith Protocol which offers optional anonymity and extremely competitive transaction costs. These attributes have proven to be attractive to investors landing Verge amongst the top 30 coins in market cap. Now, with this new partnership in the works, Justin Vendetta believes that Verge has the potential to jump into a top five market cap position.
On March 19th, Verge made an interesting announcement to its community explaining that they would be launching a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of 75 million XVG which, if reached, would be followed by a massive partnership announcement. Many critics scoffed and called the announcement a scam but ever since the campaign goal was reached, the sentiment around Verge has trended extremely positive.
In a video to the Verge community, Vendetta announced that April 17th, 2018 will be the day of the big reveal. In his words, this date will be one of, if not the, biggest days in cryptocurrency history. Naturally, this news has been followed by an impressive and warranted run in value. At the time of this posting XVG has jumped well over 60% on the week.
So, what does this mean for Verge? It means that Verge is in prime position to make a leap into the top 10, potentially even top 5, cryptocurrencies. The Verge community that has stuck with the coin despite countless instances of FUD and attacks seems to be in for a treat.
