Anycoin Direct initially called ‘Bitplaats’, started off in April 2013. Now operating in the European region, Anycoin Direct supports direct payment methods, meaning they do not hold any customer funds. As stated by users, the exchange is reliable, fast, and well-known.
The company made big news in April when it announced that the much requested token XRP was available for exchange on their platform. The platform has on-boarded many cryptocurrencies from its genesis, the latest being Stellar Lumens [XLM] and Verge [XVG]. The exchange now supports more than 17 cryptocurrencies.
Verge has been in the limelight since the beginning of the year for various reasons. Controversies have been circulating the coin lately. As a first, the coin was attacked by DDOS twice, making it the center of discussion. Also, its secret collaboration with the adult entertainment website PornHub raised many brows.
