Hacked Verge Token Takes Price Hit

Privacy-focused cryptocurrency verge (XVG) has been in the news for all the wrong reasons over the most recent 24 hours, yet the technicals diagrams show better times may lie ahead.

Prominently, the verge chain was assaulted yesterday, with the hackers making off with  $1 million-worth of tokens. The issue was first conveyed to see by a client named “ocminer” on the Bitcoin Talk discussion.

The verge group recognized the attack through Twitter toward the evening of Wednesday, while its primary developer, “DogeDarkDev,” tried to calm market nerves by expressing that the group has pushed out a “handy solution” and the group is chipping away at “a whole new block verification process.”

Nonetheless, the convenient solution ended up being a hard fork, as pointed out by ocminer. That went poorly well with the investor group, which required a rollback to cross out the coins mined during the hack. The developers dismissed that thought, in any case, and tried to make light of the entire scene by calling it a “small attack.” The group is booked to discharge the full fork refresh today.

In the midst of the scuffle, XVG witnessed strong two-way business.

According to Bittrex, the token tumbled from $0.0722 (05:00 UTC yesterday) to a low of $0.048 (07:00 UTC) today before recovering some balance. At the moment, the cryptocurrency is changing hands at $0.055 – down 13 percent on a 24-hour.

It is important that costs had bounced to a six-week high of $0.078 on April 3 because of fruitful crowdfunding campaign and speculation that verge is collaborating with a noteworthy retailer.

In spite of the pullback to $0.048, the short-term stays bullish, according to the technical studies.

XVG cleared the dropping trendline to leap in a persuading way on April 1 and closed well above $0.056 (March 27 high) on April 3, flagging a transient bullish trend reversal.

The cryptocurrency has built up higher lows, as represented by the rising trendline and higher highs, as demonstrated by a move above $0.056 on Tuesday. In this way, XVG looks set to scale the 100-day moving average (MA) resistance arranged at $0.0789.

Moreover, the diagram demonstrates “death cross” – a bearish hybrid between the 50-day MA and the 200-day MA. Be that as it may, the indicator has a tendency to be a slacking indicator and shouldn’t be a reason for worry as long as costs hold over the climbing trendline.


The short-term outlook is bullish and XVG will probably test $0.0789 (100-day MA) in the following couple of days. A break higher would uncover $0.10 (psychological hurdle) and $0.135 (Jan. 21 high).

On the drawback, a dip under the rising trendline would abort the bullish view, while a break beneath $0.032 (March 30 low) would return the bears in the driving seat.
