With most of the crypto market down today, it’s nice to see some green out there. NEO, VeChain (VEN), and Verge (XVG) are all up currently, going against what the rest of the crypto market is doing right now. Is there anything actually happening with these coins that would explain why they’re up? Let’s find out.
NEO is currently selling for $51.36, which puts the coin up 7.52% in the past 24 hours.
NEO is gearing up for its European tour, holding meetups and workshops in several different cities across the continent between April 14th and April 26th.
This may not have any current effect on NEO’s price, but it does help to build up the NEO community even further, which can only benefit NEO in the future.
There’s also going to be a NEO blockchain meetup happening in Tokyo soon.

VeChain is currently selling for $2.66, which puts the coin up 5.33% in the past 24 hours.
After dipping as low as $2.42, VeChain looks to be on the road to recovery now.
VeChain was recently named as one of the top 10 blockchain solution providers in 2018 by APAC CIOoutlook, a print magazine providing an educational platform for CIOs, CTOs, and other IT buyers. APAC CIOoutlook labeled VeChain as “the next frontier in global commerce.”
This could explain why VEN is currently growing, the article perhaps influencing people towards the VeChain platform.

Verge is currently selling for $0.068625, which puts the coin up 6.03% in the past 24 hours.
Currently ranked as the 20th largest cryptocurrency, Verge has a market cap of $1.0 billion.
Verge labels itself as a “secure and anonymous cryptocurrency” that is for everyday use and is community driven.
The crypto recently had a successful update, forking on April 7th, which could explain why XVG is in the green right now.
