Singapore — December 23, 2018 — Today, before the kickoff of many holiday festivities, The Crypto Den, PLAAK and Verge are announcing a three way collaborative effort, to promote and educate everyone on the acceptance of cryptocurrency. Their combination of skills in education, best in class UX design, and advanced security technologies, allow for a powerful push towards mass adoption.

“We wanted to bring Verge and PLAAK together, we think highly of Verge’s ability to bring partners into the cryptosphere” said Dave, Co-founder of The Crypto Den (TCD) “PLAAK is really pushing hard, to push out easy-to-use and secure wallets, putting them out there, with the Verge community, will generate great awareness to their effort.”

This joint collaboration brings a branded hardware wallet to the Verge Community. Powered by PLAAK’s revolutionary bio-metric features, this wallet has both NFC and Bluetooth technologies, allowing it to function in brick and mortar stores. This Verge Branded NFC wallet, is a perfect way to show to how far cryptocurrencies have come, and their superiority over fiat.

Contrary to the popular belief outside of the cryptoverse, that cryptocurrencies are dead, Verge and PLAAK are proof that cryptocurrencies are emerging from the internet and into retail use.

What comes out of this partnership, is a PLAAK powered hardware wallet, which offers top-of-the-line security, and intuitive user-interface with the Verge branding, available through The Crypto Den awareness platform. All three parties express the desire to use this trifecta as a means to inform and promote the use of e-currencies as a replacement to Fiat.

Chai Shepherd, Co-founder & Technology Co-CEO for PLAAK is fond of saying that “With Crypto currencies, you are your own bank” echoing the sentiment of many in the Verge Community and the larger crypto-space. “With our proven technology, we can empower individuals regardless of their technological skills, to do”

As such, Verge is excited to inform the community that the PLAAK powered NFC wallet, with Verge Branding is a third party wallet, which is under the unique responsibility of PLAAK, can now be purchased from The Crypto Den store, and be used to store and spend your Verge.

“There can be quite lot of animosity among competing crypto projects, but one of the greatest things to see in this space is when a collaborative effort is made between a few organizations who choose to work together in effort of moving things closer and closer to mass adoption.” Said Dini, Verge’s head of Project management, when asked about her feelings on group projects.

The Crypto Den, a.k.a. TCD. The Crypto Den, a well-acclaimed platform keeps close ties with crypto enthusiasts by offering Market analytics and self-help materials to a growing base of traders. In their mission of reaching out and bringing awareness of cryptocurrency to the digital generation, TCD helped create this possibility by introducing the two projects to each other. In doing so, they paved the way for an amazing collaboration.

PLAAK began as an ecosystem of interconnected Apps for SMB’s and customers, aimed at sharing the benefits of blockchain technology to make it part of everyone’s daily routine. They offer an exchange platform with automated K.Y.C., accessible through the Core App featuring bio-metric support for enhanced security. Their flagship product is Phaeton, a robust, DPoS governed blockchain, supporting DApps, Smart Contracts and decentralized, inter-operable side chains. They are fond of establishing close ties with companies in the industry to promote a shared vision of a world where cryptocurrency, is the norm.

Verge is a cryptocurrency designed for people and for everyday use. Verge processes with confirmation times under 30 seconds and supports transactions in the range of several hundreds per second. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain and aims to fulfill its initial purpose of providing individuals and businesses with a fast, efficient and decentralized way of making direct transactions while maintaining the option to choose personal privacy or not. Verge aims to always give the user freedom of choice and therefore the possibility of utilizing built-in features that support what level of privacy is good for them when paying — something no credit card or electronic payment system currently offers.
