Dear Verge Family Worldwide,

Over the course of our existence in the crypto space we have faced many trials and tribulations. As many of you are aware our project has gone from a small independent movement focused on providing our users with a safe and privacy oriented way to handle everyday transactions to something much, much bigger. There have been many opportunities for us along our journey to grow and learn from our successes and mistakes while simultaneously following our dreams.

One of the most important areas of focus for us at Verge Currency is striving to bring personal information security to people around the world. In order to achieve this goal, we have been working tirelessly for the last few years to meticulously plan and strategize ways for our small project to be taken to the next level. About a month and a half ago we were approached by our new partners with the prospects of them adopting us to their business. Without hesitation, we jumped on this opportunity with the understanding that it is destined to be one of the biggest adoptions of cryptocurrency in the entire industry.

This partner owns one of the largest payment processors on the internet with several hundreds of businesses routing their payment traffic through them. The partner is going to be supporting Verge Currency by rolling out a global marketing campaign with continuous marketing effort throughout the year.

Upon having both parties coming to a consensus we on the Verge Currency team quickly set out to make this deal a reality. The task at hand was to raise a whopping 75,000,000 XVG to cover the following:

  1. Cost of integrating into their extensive network of payment gateway and websites.
  2. A massive marketing campaign to span the globe.
  3. International press releases and news coverage.
  4. Ledger nano/Trezor hardware integration.

And so much more.

With no time to spare and a game plan on hand we had 5 days to raise the funds. Thanks to the wonderful support of our community and the help of our existing partners, we did it. We at Verge Currency want to take a quick moment to thank each and every individual in our community whether you were able to support our crowdfunding initiative, or not, for sticking with us and supporting our project through all of the ups and downs we have experienced.

We are all extremely excited for the future and the challenges ahead. We believe that this is the first major step in achieving our dreams.

Stay tuned tomorrow 10am EST for the official press release.
