It’s not a surprise to see that the Verge news has caused the altcoin to increase. After all, Huobi is one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges. Not to mention XVG will be trading with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
Verge Price: July 31st, 2018
At press time, Verge (ranked the 27th largest cryptocurrency by market cap) is selling for $0.024529, which puts the altcoin up 4.95% in the past twenty-four hours.
I know what you’re thinking: a slightly more than 4% climb isn’t that big of a deal. A fair point, however, not entirely true. The markets appear to be undergoing an extremely heavy correction at the moment, and Verge (XVG) is moving away from this, at least for now.
Looking at CoinMarketCap, all of the top ten coins are in the red zone, with Bitcoin down 3.61% and Ethereum down 4.83%.
Could This Be the Start of Something?
It’s no secret that Verge has been relatively quiet lately. However, now Verge may have a competitive edge.
It’s possible that the Verge launch on Huobi will give the crypto market a second wind of sort. If a major crypto exchange is listing the coin, don’t you think investors might want to be a part of that? Invest some funds back into the project?
