Huobi have announced the listing of Verge XVG as a trading pair against both Bitcoin and Ethereum. As it stands, deposits are now available with trading set to go live on the 1st of August 2018. The news has had a positive impact on XVG, which at the time of writing is up 5.45%. This might not seem to be a significant climb given the scale of the listing, but, as it stands the markets are experiencing very heavy correction, therefore XVG is doing well to move away from this in making some slight positive movements. At the time of writing, XVG’s neighbours DigiByte, Dogecoin, Siacoin and Bytom are down 2.28%, 5.14%, 6.82% and 9.60% respectively. According to Huobi:

Verge have been very quiet of late, therefore this new listing might help inject some life and some funds back into the project. After the flunked PornHub announcement of April, Verge has received bad press after bad press, mainly as a result of its vulnerability to double spend attacks which seemed to cripple Verge over a number of months. Moreover, PornHub recently announced the acceptance of other crypto payment options, such as TRONs TRX, calling into question the legitimacy of Verge’s crowdfunding campaign that was allegedly set up to help fund ‘the biggest cryptocurrency partnership announcement the world has ever seen’. Since then, Verge have been pretty quiet. Perhaps this is the announcement they need to get the ball rolling once again?
