WhatsApp and Verge (XVG) Potential Partnership for all the Right Reasons
WhatsApp could integrate a money transfer service, and it could choose Verge (XVG). Here are the reasons for such a thought is not far-fetched at all.
Verge (XVG) has been surrounded just recently with extreme hype after it got integrated into PornHub. A while ago Verge conducted a crowd-funding campaign which promised the team to secure their most important partnership ever for the crypto adoption. The news of Verge teaming up with PornHub was not necessarily received with open arms and teary eyes by investors and voices in the crypto space, but it did manage to create a lot of fuss around the coin. The only downside is that the XVG’s value went down after, but the Verge community kept calm. Even if Verge got hit by hackers, as a currency XVG is still around.
WhatsApp is a highly secure encrypted messenger service, and for the moment its only focus involves file sharing and instant messaging. But who knows, maybe in the future we can expect WhatsApp to integrate a money transfer service. If we consider the fact that Facebook just recently integrate money transfer into Facebook Messenger, this could definitely happen to WhatsApp as well.
Verge could be the perfect candidate
WhatsApp uses end-to-end encryption for enhanced security. So one of its massive advantages is the high security that it can offer for its users. It would make total sense for the service to consider integrating a decentralized resource if they decide to use blockchain money transfer.
WhatsApp is already focusing on increasing security, and that’s why it would make sense for them to use a currency such as Verge.
Verge is quite a trendy token these days, and it’s still surrounded by a lot of hype, not to mention that fact that it’s highly accessible for those interested in it.
The advantages would be both ways because WhatsApp boasts a 1 billion users base and a partnership with Verge could mean access to the crypto for a billion more people which would definitely boost Verge as a crypto.
