We all remember the crowdfunding campaign that Verge (XVG) started at the end of March 2018. With the tweet they posted back then, the team behind XVG called out to the public, especially stressing out that they need the support of XVG community so they would be able to raise 75 million XVG. And, as we all remember, they have succeeded in this goal, reaching the 75 million XVG even before the end of the crowdfunding. There was also a lot of hype regarding this campaign, so everyone was waiting to find out who is behind the mystery partnership that was promised in case the goal was reached. The goal is reached and we are getting close to the date of unfolding this mystery.
Verge and the Crowdfunding
The crowdfunding organized by Verge (XVG) started off at the end of March with the goal of raising 75 million VXG during the campaign. The team managed to collect the set goal even before the end of the crowdfunding, but investors kept participating in the campaign, providing the team with even more than the goal they initially stated to be a necessity.
In return for the dedication of investors and users, Verge team promised to reveal a mystery partnership that would only be sealed in case the initial goal is succeeded. They have collected the fund they needed for acquiring a mystery partner, so the team behind Verge promised that the revealing of the mystery partnership will occur on April 17th, which is only a couple of days away.
The atmosphere among XVG users and investors is clearly seen as the tension behind the mystery partnership also seems to be pushing Verge up in addition to having XVG pushed a couple of weeks ago when the crowdfunding started with the funding goal being reached before the campaign needed.
Verge has addressed the public and all its followers via the official Verge Twitter profile, where the representative team announced that they are eager to see the mystery partnership finally unveiled in the eyes of the public and the faithful investors who were in the first place responsible for XVG having more than a successful campaign.
