DigiByte up by 19% after Vertpig listing, AtomicWallet support


DigiByte has risen by some 19.21% over the past twenty-four hours, thanks to the fact that the cryptocurrency asset has not only listed on Vertpig – an exchange dedicated to Vertcoin trading pairs – but is now supported on AtomicWallet.

Earlier today, Vertpig announced that it had opened a VRT/DGB trading pair with a 0% makers fee, and a 0.25% takers fee. The exchange further confirmed that the cryptocurrency would be added to its Vertpig Swap feature once the trading pair has established sufficient liquidity on the platform.

The announcement was joined by the news that DigiByte will now be supported on AtomicWallet – a decentralized exchange supporting cross-chain atomic swaps between cryptocurrency pairs.

DigiByte may be in for a busy semester in the latter half of 2018 – DigiByte spokesman Josiah Spackman revealed offered that the cryptocurrency may undergo a hard fork to introduce proof-of-stake mechanics in the near future, though it remains to be seen if the upgrade will indeed be implemented.

DigiByte has risen sharply as a result of the news – the cryptocurrency began trading at $0.020 USD on January 27th, and at press time trades at $0.025 USD.
