Pornhub, the popular website for…you know, videos, has just announced they are now accepting payment via crypto. The site is known for it invonative approach to business and they continue this trend with the bold move to accept the cryptocurrency, Verge, as payment. Verge, an anonymity-focused cryptocurrency, will now be used to pay for all Pornhub purchases – including their HD, On-Demand streaming platform, Pornhub Premium. It will also be accepted for Pornhub’s partner sites like Brazzers and Nutaku.

“Here at Pornhub, we have always strongly valued innovation and privacy. Over the past couple of years we’ve launched Virtual Reality (VR), to provide our users with the most immersive experience possible; a Bug Bounty program, which offers monetary rewards to security researchers for finding bugs on our platform; and HTTPS, to provide a more secure user experience. Our acceptance of Verge is an affirmation of our dedication to innovation and privacy, which recently has caused much concern and been at the forefront of all tech consumers’ minds,” said Corey Price. “Were extremely excited to offer our fans the ability to use crypto and think Verge, with its focus on anonymity, is the best option – whether for privacy, convenience or both!”

Price added, “Not only is this an exciting announcement for us and the adult entertainment industry, it’s exciting for the crypto space. History has proven that the adult entertainment industry plays a critical role in adoption for innovative technology. We saw that with VHS, Beta Max, credit card payment icons and, most recently, VR goggles. We expect to see widespread adoption of crypto and blockchain in short order.”

What is Verge?
Verge Currency was created in 2014 and is designed for everyday use. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain and aims to fulfill its initial purpose of providing individuals and businesses with a fast, efficient and decentralized way of making direct transactions while maintaining personal privacy. Unlike other crypto’s, Verge doesn’t use cryptography as much to become an anonymous cryptocurrency. Instead, it uses Tor and I2P network to achieve its goals.

With Pornhub’s 85,000,000 visitors a day and the stigma around Porn, using crypto, with it’s privacy benefits, is a smart move and I expect sales to increase because of it. Crypto is still very new though, with headline news talking about bitcoin & ethereum, does anyone know or use Verge yet? Pornhub have not ruled out accepting other forms of crypto in the future.
