51% attack on Verge! - Carsten - 2018-04-07

Be aware of Verge since it has been victim of a 51% attack. They coin took a huge hit and is "cheap" now.

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/verge/. The team had to make a hard fork on the blockchain to "revert" the attack but still lost the worth of $1 million tokens. Should you go in now or stay out?

Just goes to show that even famous and high market cap projects can and do have bugs in their code.

Yes. Seems like the fork has put some trust back in Verge since it's up 11% from yesterday.

I would assume more issues along the line. Even I know about the 51% attack so surely all decent coins would try to prevent something like this happening.

Yes! Fraud has been happening multiple time. Pump and dump is an example of that.
