Verge partners with Pornhub

Adult entertainment giant Mindgeek, the owner of Pornhub and Brazzers, is now accepting payments in the form of the anonymous cryptocurrency Verge (XVG).

The mysterious partnership, which had been hinted at over the past month, means that users now have the option to pay for a premium subscription without leaving any trace which was a real problem with credit card payment.

Verge founder Justin Sunerok said:

“Pornhub is a global organization with nearly a hundred million daily users. This partnership represents an enormous market with a global reach that will compete with fiat currencies. It’s huge for Verge and we’re extremely excited to finally be able to announce it.”


The future has come. In our efforts to keep current with our community’s privacy and payment preferences, Pornhub will now be accepting Verge as a means of payment for services like Pornhub Premium and more, on our platforms. Building on Verge’s core values of security, anonymity and practicality, the introduction of this cryptocurrency as a means of payment Pornhub signifies an important foray into the future from the industry that is always on the cutting edge of technology.


The new partnership made Verge ‘privacy coin’ added to Porn Hub as a payment option for their porn-subscription services. The partnership has been met with some mixed reviews, with many people questioning the need for Verge to be integrated into Porn Hub’s systems. Most of the disappointment, however, comes from the fact Verge have really hyped this announcement up in order to pump the value of XVG, in doing so, they have acted deceitfully.

Okay, so they haven’t lied at any point, but what they have done is let the rumors get the better of them.

Despite this lapse in the currency, and the withdrawal of many supporters, the Porn Hub announcement might start to pick up some pace and bring the Verge currency into the forefront of a new arena, albeit a very specific arena.

According to WorthofWeb.com, Porn Hub is worth just short of $4billion, pulling in an estimated $1,170,328 per day. WorthofWeb.com estimates Porn Hubs traffic to reach 78,021,978 visits per day, reaching just short of an estimated 12billion page views per month.

In theory, that’s 12billion people a month, who now have access to a Verge based payment system. Granted, out of those 12billion views, many visitors won’t be using the sites subscription service, but perhaps the privacy promised by Verge may encourage more people to do so. If this wasn’t the plan, why wouldn’t the website just continue to accept standard currencies?

Verge is known as the privacy coin, perhaps this protection might encourage more people to subscribe to websites like Porn Hub, with the anonymity being used to mask any associated guilt that may otherwise arise should a regular subscription transaction for Porn Hub leave your bank account each month.
