  • Verge – single most frequently hijacked chain

    Verge – a Copy Paste from a 14 Year Olds Pet Project and single most frequently hijacked chain. The Verge team just took the code and changed the names from OpalCoin to Verge. Don’t believe me? See for yourself. This is because the 6-algo PoW consensus mechanism has been broken for over a year. You don’t need 51% to take over the chain, you just need 16%~, enough to dominate one of the algorithms and tell the network to ignore the others. That’s right, anyone can take over Verge with a “16% attack”.
