What is Verge?

Verge can be defined as a privacy-focused cryptocurrency that targets to maintain their transactions untraceable while giving the option for good throughput and quick processing times. This cryptocurrency is completely open-source and community-led. Verge does not have any sort of organization that is present behind its name. The higher authorities at Verge had signed the black paper using just their usernames. The team at the Verge keeps privacy, and decentralization as their top priority.

Initially, the coin started in early 2014 and was named as DogeCoinDark. However, in 2016, the team at Verge wanted to set themselves apart from the Doge meme as well as the negative connotation of “dark”. Hence why they had decided to change the name from DogeCoinDark to Verge. Over the past couple of years, Verge has proven that it is capable of mass adoption and is leading in that direction as well.

Key points of the Verge project

There were numerous points that Verge has covered during its development. These key points truly helped it move further towards achieving its end goal of becoming the top crypto coin. It consists of a few things which add credential to its name.

Stealth Transaction

The main aim is to protect users meta data (IP, location, wallet type, etc) while offering public transaction by use of built in Tor network. The user will get to experience fast and quick processing of their transactions, yet stay private.

Wallets

Verge makes use of the electrum wallet, although this was originally developed for Bitcoin. Electrum is capable of running both Tor and I2P integration. It further ensures that the user is getting a safe and protected storage of tokens. If the user desires to send XVG, they can simply do that by signing the transaction via their private key offline. After this is done, the user will be able to broadcast their transaction from any computer which has no accessibility to the user’s private keys.

Mining

Verge is considered to be one of those small amounts of projects that are constantly on the lookout to try and test out different multi-algorithm consensus. This multiple testing points finger at the fact that they can exchange XVG in five different methods. Each algorithm is based on proof of work. Although, there are a couple of people who prefer ASIC hardware while others favor GPU compatibility.

XVG Coin

XVG coin was released without a pre-mine or an ICO. The team had decided to purchase Verge coins, something that would be very common for other coins to do as well.

As of now, Verge stands in the top 30 cryptocurrencies in the world. Multiple large exchanges have listed it such as Binance and Bittrex.

For the atomic swap to work, hash-locks and time-locks are used which freezes the tokens on one blockchain in return for releasing the tokens on a different blockchain. The team at the Verge believes that interoperability is the ultimate solution for the platform to become a go-to security provider.
