What Is Verge (XVG)?

Verge (XVG) is a cryptocurren focused on privacy by using pseudonyms and obscuring IP addresses. It was initially called Dogecoindark when created in 2014. It was rebranded as Verge in 2016 and gained notoriety in spring 2018 as the official cryptocurrency of MindGeek, the parent company of major porn sites like Pornhub and Brazzers.

Who Is Verge?

Verge was created in 2016 by Justin Sunerock. The development team has since grown to over two dozen people.

Use Cases of Verge

Verge advertises itself as anonymous, but it’s more pseudonymous, which can be just as good. It’s meant to be used as a digital currency or transfer of goods. It’s especially useful for online purchases, and, as proven from its partnership, is a great use case for adult content.

How to Mine XVG

XVG is mined using a variety of Proof-of-Work (PoW) mining algorithms. This makes it easily accessible to owners of mining rigs that were made obsolete when the intended coin switched to resist ASIC mining.
