If you’re one for checking the markets first thing in the morning, then you’ll see Verge is up 12.41%. Interestingly, this comes at the same time as an announcement on the Verge Twitter page…

Just to give you a bit of context here, earlier this month, Verge pushed a crowdfunding campaign that promised to ‘bring a few important elements to life’. To promote the crowdfunding push, Verge have offered several incentives to fans to get potential donators on board. Incentives included entry to a raffle (which included a few prizes), a mention on the Verge donor’s website and some live working interviews with the Verge developers.
It must also be noted that just a few days ago, Verge tweeted this video…

It’s a preview of their new iOS wallet, during which Verge promised to announce a ‘massive potential partnership’ if they reach their crowdfunding goal which was a target of 75 Million $XVG.
After a little help from Token Pay last night, who promised to double all donations, Verge reached their target at around 4am, UK time. Now it seems they are ready to make a big announcement.
With the currency looking to be on the up, and a new potential partnership on the horizon, it’s quite an exciting time to be involved with Verge, furthermore, if you dig a little further and there’s even more hints online about the possibility of a big company getting involved with Verge:
“In line with our mission to empower people to bring blockchain transactions into everyday life, we are thrilled to announce efforts to establish the largest cryptocurrency collaboration to hit the market. A global organization with a vast network of high traffic sites is looking to enter the cryptocurrency market and form a strategic business alliance with Verge as the preferred form of secure payment method, offering a quick and private means of transaction to hundreds of millions of potential consumers daily. This partnership represents an enormous potential market with a global reach that will compete with multiple fiat currencies. We are eager to see this partnership materialize and invite everyone in the Verge community to support this ground-breaking initiative”.
Who ever it is they are getting on board, they have big boots to fill, could Verges claims that this is the ‘largest cryptocurrency collaboration to hit the market’ be true, or is it just a hype campaign to get Verge a spot in the limelight for a bit?
Either way, there’s an awful lot of excitement surrounding this one. With an announcement due today, my advice? Get to Twitter and let’s see what they have to say for themselves.
