The grassroots culture is what makes Verge
unique and dynamic.
Verge is a cryptocurrency designed for people and for everyday use. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain and aims to fulfill its initial purpose of providing individuals and businesses with a fast, efficient and decentralized way of making direct transactions while maintaining your privacy.
Our mission is to empower people around the world by bringing blockchain transactions into everyday life. Verge Currency makes it possible to engage in direct transactions quickly, efficiently and privately. With Verge Currency, businesses and individuals have flexible options for sending and receiving payments. With the flip of a switch, we offer helpful integrations and tools that enable them to handle large scale transactions between merchants and small scale private payments.
Verge Currency was created in 2014 under the name DogeCoinDark. In 2016, it was rebranded to Verge Currency.
No, it is 100% open-source software and not a private company funded through an ICO or pre-mining. Development and marketing effort is supported by thousands of volunteer community members.
