Does This Hard Fork of Verge Rise its Value to Past Highs?

  • Verge is an open-source cryptocurrency that is designed mostly for people who want more secure transactions.

Verge is an open-source project that uses Tor to encrypt and hide transaction address. The current total supply of Verge is on its way to reaching 16,555,000,000. So as maintaining such huge data is complicated and it takes around four years more for the adjustments to make strategic decisions.

Without adjustments, the company would face the problem as miners would make nothing but transaction fees and thereby certain Miners would opt-out under this type of processed model. Van Zanten said that –

“If miners go from making 730 XVG per block, making 1 or 2 coins maximum or 0 sometimes, they are going to go away and my something profitable.”

The new hard fork would make the Verge miners profitable so that the protocol remains with secured network. This hard fork could have an impact on XVG’s price.
