Recently, Verge (XVG) had an official meetup, which has been highly publicized for their live streams and other social media posts. The members have used these tools to imply to consumers that something new is happening, though nothing has been official. An insider from Verge has suggested that there will soon be three new partnerships for the company, but they are being protected by NDAs for the involved parties until everything is finalized.
One of the members of the core team for Verge, Cees van Dam, tweeted,
“1 yr ago, I joined the #xvg core team, never anybody could imagine the ride. Setting up the Social media presence, voting wars, fighting FUD, etc. We have had our ups and downs but we are still here, stronger than ever. Cherry on the cake, the first Verge meetup, enjoy :-)”
It is easy to see how active Verge is in their brand through social media, though they have recently been hit with some challenges. They have partnered with controversial websites like Brazzers and Pornhub that have left consumers doubting their brand, while DDOS attacks have helped with the loss of millions of XVG. However, they have remained unusually positive through these issues, which may help consumers regain their confidence in the brand.
They have recently published a statement about one of the partnerships they’ve setup that will soon be available. The smart contract platform they joined with appears to be RSKsmart, though the Testnet was only established about a week ago. In a statement from Justin Vendetta of Verge, he said,
“RSK is the most secure smart contract platform. We will be integrating them directly into Verge Currency.”
