In fact, this cryptocurrency a lot of advantages. Vertcoin one of the first implemented the technology of the atomic swap, which makes it compatible with other cryptocurrencies that use this technology. In addition, Vertcoin is doing everything to this cryptocurrency could only mine with GPU to avoid race ASIC-s. Unfortunately, Vertcoin is now not very popular with miners. Hasret, the network has been reduced by half (if compared with December) with 3.6 TH/s to 1.8 TH/s. Halving (reducing the reward for the miners for the block in half) also adversely affect the interest of the miners .
VTC market price fell along with other cryptocurrencies, to 2.50 dollar losing 13% in the last 24 hours. However, the community continues to work and came close to the launch of the Fiat exchangers for VTC in England and the United States.
Vertbase and Vertpig
Vertbase is an American cryptocurrency exchange on which the VTC will be traded against USD. At the moment VTC is mainly traded against BTC, and thus when price falls for free the number one, the price of VTC is also beginning to fall, like most altcoins. That is why the Vertcoin community decided to create their own exchange where VTC to be traded against Fiat currencies. This should completely change the principles of formation of the price of VTC.
