Move Along Verge, PornHub Are Accepting TRON And ZenCash

The Verge x PornHub drama has gone pretty quiet recently, but, lo and behold, it rears its angry head once again. This time however, Verge seems to be somewhat out of the equation. Actually, before we begin, let me recap… In April, Verge announced a ‘huge’ partnership which would see PornHub list Verge XVG as a payment option, allowing people to subscribe to the adult entertainment service using XVG as a currency. The majority of the crypto-sphere felt that the announcement was totally disappointing, given the hype that Verge generated leading up to it. Yes, PornHub are a huge part of a huge industry but even so, many argued that it is unlikely that users will take to XVG top actually pay for their subscriptions to their website. Moreover, many people actually asked how many people even subscribe. Regardless of this, it now seems that Mindgeek, the group behind PornHub have taken it upon themselves to accept TRON (TRX) and ZenCash (ZEN) as payment options now too, giving subscribers even more choice over which cryptocurrency they decide to use. Very interestingly at this point, we should consider that with the initial Verge partnership, they established a crowd funding campaign to raise money to secure this partnership, a partnership that is alleged to have cost Verge 75,000,000 XVG. In this instance, it seems TRX and ZEN have been added free of charge. If this is the case, what on earth have Verge paid for? Either way, this is pretty good news for TRON and ZenCash, of course, it does open up a new customer base for them and it very much offers TRON and ZenCash holders a new way in which they can spend their money, albeit a pretty niche one. Finance Magnates have recently covered this story too, stating some of the intrinsic benefits that this new adoption holds for both TRON and ZenCash. According to Finance Magnates:
“Pornhub represents a major new marketplace for Tron. Operational since 2007, the site published its 2017 ‘year in review’ in January, and the numbers are staggering. 81 million visits a day (or 28.5 billion a year), 25 billion searches performed (that’s 800 per second), 68 years’ worth of porn uploaded, and 3,732 petabytes of data transferred – every 5 minutes Pornhub transmits more data than the entire contents of the New York Public library’s 50 million books.”
Moreover, according to Finance Magnates, the VP of PornHub Corey Price is optimistic about this new adoption:
“Decentralized payment systems have continued to grow in popularity, and cryptocurrency adoption is exploding across a broad economic spectrum. Today, cryptocurrencies are especially viable in the adult entertainment industry because they are privacy-centric and incorporate more anonymity tools than traditional tender.”
