“As the decentralized ecosystem advances, we expect there will be many more opportunities for customers to interact with digital assets in new and unique ways.”

Verge Hacked

In the last months, a well known for its partnership with Brazzers privacy-focused cryptocurrency Verge (XVG) has been hacked. It is 2nd hack during the last months; the previous time hackers stole 250.000 XVG, this time it is 35 mln (~$1.7 mln), as the Next Web reported.

Also, Verge tweeted that their mining pools were under the most popular cyber-attack DDOS on May 21.

XVG is going up after an after-hack value lose; it is good to see that once again Verge is doing well after the crisis. Last time Verge developers resolved hack initiating a hard fork, it was an accident according to OCminer (Supernova Mining pool) comments on BitcoinTalk.

“Hmm, you guys are aware that the “fix” you pushed actually IS a hardfork ? So your blockchain snapshot is not valid anymore, the wallet’s won’t sync up from scratch anymore, and the current chain is simply not usable anymore with that new “fix” ?” -OCminer
