Verge is an open-source blockchain with its primary focus on privacy. This token utilizes the TOR and I2P network to anonymize the IP addresses of the users on its public ledger. Whilst TOR (The Onion Network) is a peer-to-peer network that uses multiple different servers to hide the location of the users, and it works as an intermediary between our IP address and the verge blockchain, I2P is more anonymous because of the different paths used to send and receive messages on the transaction. Verge’s blockchain is fast due to the use of Simple Payment Verification (SPV) and scalable (100 transactions per second), and the cost of the transaction is about 0.01 XVG, which is the least amount for a transaction fee. Another advantage for the Verge users is their ability to switch between private and public ledgers on the blockchain.

The crypto cons for Verge is denoted by XVG, which can be mined by anyone using CPU, GPU or ASIC. Affordability of the coins and the process of mining make Verge popular amongst its community. Transactions on the verge platform would cost less than a cent.
