It is also worth noting that Verge team had successfully implemented the hardfork, as a response to recent hack. Currently, blockchain explorers do not show any suspicious activity on the Verge network. Users noted that after the fork on the block, 2040000 exploit with a time stamp offset no longer works.

Developers did not roll back the transaction history, therefore the volume of Verge's emission increased faster than planned. Fortunately, Verge already has a fairly large number of coins in circulation, which smoothes out the negative impact of the latest incident. 

These news had great implact onto XVG price. It rose for 15% in 24 hours.

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
