Whereas Bitcoin succeeded in the mission of creating a decentralised cryptocurrency, Verge brings it further by making transactions completely anonymous. The currency is virtually untraceable and the users of Verge can make instant anonymous transactions.
Verge is a privacy coin aimed at improving privacy in transactions that can be used every day. Verge uses many anonymity-centric networks to maintain utmost privacy and anonymity. Transaction speeds are Ultra-Fast compared to other coins.

This is an amazing piece of technology, capable of providing the privacy, flexibility and security needed while using a private coin. With the release of this Protocol, Verge seems to be one of the most promising projects of 2018.

Now that you’ve purchased Verge, let’s talk about how to store them and the various wallets that support Verge.
Storing Verge: Wallets for (XVG)
The development team at Verge have developed their own wallet known as Electrum Wallet.
When we downloaded the wallet to test it out ourselves, we encountered a settings issue.
If the server does not connect upon downloading and opening the wallet, use “126.96.36.199” as your server address and port 50001 or 50002. Uncheck the box “Use SSL” and uncheck “Auto Connect”. After this, your Wallet should work fine.
Verge, according to me, is one of the best privacy coins available. It is all set to boom in 2018 as per market research and I have added quite a bit of it to my Portfolio.
In the recent past, the price of Verge was $ 0.0087 . Today, the price is $0.1535. That's an astonishing increase by 25x!
