Before we go on to the exciting stuff starting to happen, let’s do a recap since the last Vergecurrency Marketing update.
We’ve said many times that we share the news when it happens, and we do. But let’s face it, when the Verge Community gets going, a lot happens quickly, so marketing updates are useful again. The Verge team is 40 volunteers, which means we work to maintain the blockchain, and the community while having our day jobs. If you want news, be like our new graphic designer Cityboi, and make the news; we are all volunteers after-all.
We had a marketing update in the form of 2020: a year in review. Go ahead, read it, the rest of this article will wait for you.
Since many people are joining the community (more on this below) I thought it was important to share the main social media handle (these are in English)
Skip this part if your familiar with the social media handles.
We rely on the community to go out and help us reach out to partner, exchanges and general outreach. We have a huge following on social media with people from around the globe, there is power in this. Literally, the blockchain was saved, because of our attentive community. So be sure to participate.
So if you are new to Verge Currency, here are the important links.

On Wednesday April 7th, a community member mentioned to me that there was no real Turkish Verge community, and asked how he could help grow XVG in Turkey. This was on April 7th, 4 day later the channel reached over 1400 members. An unexpected, and welcomed reminder that #opensource #openaccess projects can grow from dedicated volunteers. Thanks to everyone involved; with a special shout out to Mehmet, for starting this, and for Numan for accompanying the growth of the channel.
Here is their first Medium post https://medium.com/vergecurrency/verge-currencyi-tan%C4%B1mak-ad%C4%B1na-cb8cf6692baf
There are many new members reaching out now to exchanges in Turkey, and helping out, this is exactly the spirit we love to see. Teşekkür ederim!

Another post by Nichola, explaining how projects can use nodes managed by Getblock.io, With this, projects can benefit from up to 40k daily transactions on a Verge Node without fees, and simply upgrade based on their need : read more here.
Currently every QT wallet for Verge Currency is its own node, that is why we are a distributed project. You can download the QT wallet from vergecurrency.com/wallets.

Verge is an open source project, we have many wonderful community members that offer invaluable amounts of help. Sometimes these helpers become Core members. They are mainly selected, by the dedications and amount of work they do. You can see the entire team on our page.
And on this note. That’s the end of the 10th marketing update.
On behalf of the entire Verge Team, Thank you for reading.
