Verge announced the strengthening of relations with the operator of the TokenPay payment system, which helped it collect the $ 3 million needed to conclude this agreement. In its Twitter, TokenPay writes that with a high degree of confidence can claim about the imminent launch of debit cards with support for XVG.

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.
