Verge (XVG) was developed in 2014 by a team of developers and was originally named as ‘DogecoinDark’. Privacy and anonymity of users, besides being an open source coin, is the USP of Verge. In order to secure the identity of users, Verge uses Tor, an anonymity tool, and an anonymous network layer I2P, in order to encrypt IP addresses and locations of transactions. Verge uses Simple Payment Verification (SPV) protocol which reduces the transaction speed significantly. And on average it takes 5 seconds to complete a transaction in SPV protocol. Additionally, the introduction of the Wraith Protocol upgrades in Verge (XVG) took the stealth to another level. Now, users can send and receive payments privately across the blockchain by enabling Wraith Protocol addressing services. On top of that, the Verge provides its user’s facility to switch between private and public ledgers on the blockchain technology. In total, Verge offers five different Proof-of-Work algorithms for mining which include Lyra2rev2, Scrypt, X17, blake2s and my-groestl.
