Verge is one the cryptocurrencies to appear in the blockchain ecosystem during the reign of the nearly extinct Initial Coin Offering (ICO) days. Back in 2017, during the “mass movement to the moon”, the crypto ecosystem was filled with a “sea of coins”, all aiming to make a name within the community.
Amid several such cryptocurrencies gracing the community with brilliant ideas and unstoppable technology, Verge was one of the few that happened to succeed until now.
The popular crypto project, whose economy runs on its native digital currency, XVG boasts of faster transaction speed and many other incredible features. These make XVG a fit in this dynamic crypto ecosystem that promises so much for the future.
Launched in 2014, Verge came out under the name “DogecoinDark” which was introduced by Justin Sunerock. Verge, according to its official documents, is an open-source secrecy coin which is governed by a group of cross-border developers. Verge runs on its native cryptocurrency, XVG and it utilizes the obscurity darkweb tool Tor for its anonymity feature and a mysterious network layer I2P to hide certain transaction areas and IP addresses.
The trade speed on Verge is virtually 5 seconds as a result of the usage of Simple Payment Verification (SPV). The Core QT wallet has incorporated TOR and SSL encryption which conceals the IP addresses of clients. The advancement of the Wraith Protocol improvement enables users to personally transact across the Verge blockchain with stealth addressing services.
Besides, Verge’s users may reportedly shift between public and private records on the Verge blockchain. The network gives five distinct Proof-of-Work algorithms for mining – Lyra2rev2, Scrypt, X17, blake2s, and myr-groestl.

The possibility described above caused further plunge towards $0.0072 by 06:00 hours UTC on the morning of June 19. The bulls tried to make a reversal but could only move slightly before selling pressure stopped the price from rising above $0.0082.

Did You Know? Verge [XVG] suffered a 51% attack twice in the same month in 2018? Over 20 million XVG coins were stolen in the historic hack!
XVG first appeared on exchanges on October 15, 2014. At the time, the coin merely had any value and continued to trade in the $0.000013 region for almost two years. The coin had a very low market capitalization and traded at nearly zero volumes on exchanges. The first major exchange volume was recorded in 2017 when over $3,000 XVG was traded during the month of March.
However, in mid-2017, XVG was affected by the general crypto surge that escorted many similar coins to greater price heights. As the frontrunner crypto, BTC was nearing its ATH value, XVG turned up and touched $0.0046 in June of the same year. At the time, its market capitalization had soared to around $21 million amid a daily exchange volume averaging around $6 million.
By December of 2017, XVG had soared and touched its all-time-high price at $0.26. The coin’s market capitalization has soared accordingly and exchange volume was hovering around 600 million on a daily basis.
A price decline set in early on in 2018 which brought about a steady decrease in the price of XVG. By January of the year, XVG had plunged to $0.19 as further decline was rapidly materializing. By February, XVG had successfully plunged to $0.04. Exchanged volumes were also vacillating at $18 million. The price surged a little bit into the second quarter of the year and prices were around $0.078 per unit.
In 2019 however, XVG price had fallen back to the $0.007 level. This was where things were until the end of the year. Although alternate price increase and decrease was experienced, the overall change in 2019 was majorly insignificant.
XVG Coin [XVG] Price Prediction 2020
XVG price momentum in 2020 remains bullish. In January, the price started the year at around $0.0035 and traded sideways for most of the month.
Into the month of February, a little price hike initially propelled XVG price towards $0.004, but by the end of the month, prices had returned to its year start value. Later in the month, a progressive price increase escorted XVG price towards $0.006 but a steep fall crashed it back to $0.002 by mid-March.
An immediate price reversal set in and XVG rose quite steadily until June. By the beginning of June, the price was around $0.004 and further push got price trading higher at $0.009 per unit by middle of the month. Within the last 5 days from now, a sharp decline has set in to record a little price loss from which we think XVG may recover in the short term.
At the moment, the price is currently $0.0077 and further uptrend is highly probable. By the end of 2020, many technicals agree to a price jump up to $0.01 per unit of the cryptocurrency.
Verge Coin [XVG] Price Prediction 2021

By the end of 2025, prices may touch as high as $0.15 and steady around that value. This may be followed by further price gains within the decade.
XVG Price Market Prediction
Few crypto experts and traders claim that XVG price is in the ‘bullish’ zone, which refers that investors believe in its potential, and their contribution makes the coin rise in price.
