Verge Prediction 2018
What is Verge?
Verge is a decentralized currency designed for users who value privacy. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain by using multiple anonymity-centric networks such as Tor and i2p. That means that all data sent on the verge blockchain is anonymized using the i2P tunneling service, which adds another layer of privacy through the use of “garlic encryption” onto verge. It utilizes multi-algorithm mining support to improve security and individuals with different types of mining equipment are able to mine verge, which means more security through decentralization and a fairer distribution of coins among verge’s mining community. Namely, Scrypt, X17, Lyra2rev2, myr-groestl and blake2s. For instance, the multi-algo makes it one of the most promising coins with a brighter future.
What makes Verge unique?
They boast a super fast block time and the big incentive is their routing of information through both Tor and I2P services which adds the privacy element.
Verge uses a proof-of-work consensus mechanism, same as bitcoin, and has a block time of 30 seconds.
Algo: Scrypt, x17, groestl, blake2s, & lyra2rev2

Company Analysis - Roadmap
Verge has the following roadmap for the near future :
i2P/TOR Android Wallets
Android Wallet for Anon transactions ONLY! (near completion)
New Core Wallet Release
Add new features including coin control, RingCT, update libraries (openssl, boost, etc)

Wallet UI overhaul
Merchandise Online Store

Compare Verge with Bitcoin
Verge Price = $0.0046 Total Verge = 16,555,000,000
Total Verge = 16,555,000,000 / Total Bitcoins = 21,000,000 = 788
As Per Supply 1 BTC equels to 788 XVG
Verge's fair value if compares to Bitcoin ($3800 / 788) = $4.8
$1 possible in 2018
Verge Currency (XVG) is a long term buy/hold for those willing to become rich.
There are several cryptocurrencies being created everyday and most don't really offer anything. Verge has a lot of potential and I first looked at it from an investment standpoint as it is currently low at only 80 satoshis.
