While everyone is debating whether or not Bitcoin is a bubble or the greatest investment in the world, many seemingly mundane altcoins are enjoying record increases while remaining below the radar. Verge is just one of the many altcoins on the rise. Due to increasing investments in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies like Litecoin and Dash, some lesser known coins are getting more attention as well. Coinmarketcap.com is a daily testament of the increasing activity in the altcoin market.
Many of these altcoins started at a value of less than one cent making the entry level for investment accessible for almost anyone. As some of these coins have increased in value by hundreds of percentage points, many new investors have been able to ride the Bitcoin wave without actually investing in Bitcoin. As with any investment opportunity one should do their due diligence and research both the coin and the developers before investing.
