Verge mining is being exploited again. Someone has 51% attacked and taken over the Verge network again. Pornhub transactions are being reversed! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Total train wreck on Verge involving a 51% attack and a botched fork.

I like Verge. Having difficulty acquiring it though.

Verge had multiple algos at once and all kinds of security issues.

Bitcoin gets a lot of flak for being extremely conservative about new code, but stuff like the Verge hack and the BCH 0-day massively validate their approach.

So much for Verge XVG and their IP address privacy. Someone's publishing originating IP addresses for Verge transactions (not just general node IP addresses). Considering that IP address obfuscation is their single privacy claim, looks like they're toast.

There are ways to be so unproductive it's better not to contribute. Privacy is like medicine or building bridges: someone can get hurt if you do it wrong or mislead.

Trust me, Verge is not helping anybody but themselves.

Verge is/was a privacy coin that relied not on enhancing actual privacy at the blockchain level but rather by bolting Tor onto Bitcoin. It was heavily shilled on Twitter and Reddit last year, but the Verge Family has gone quiet recently. Development and social media activity all but ceased when Verge was repeatedly 51% attacked earlier this year. The culprit was its unnecessarily complex five hash function Proof-of-Work algorithm, which led to it being much, much easier to exploit.
