“The future has cum.”
Do not get this article wrong. Something is cuming, err, coming for one of the world’s most visited sites – Pornhub.
Alongside the innovation on payment for most internet sites, Pornhub has found the perfect merger for two past times—watching porn and trading cryptocurrency.
Now allowing their premium subscribers, the adult entertainment can directly access exclusive contents in accounts when a visitor or reader used the crypto coin Verge (XVG).
The previous form of payments for premium members could only be thru Paypal, an e-wallet firm Paxum, check, or cash. The followings methods often show up on statements and invoices—and can association usernames and bank details to the subscriber.
With the new Verge gateway, those subscribe can now be virtually anonymous. It’s the adult version of assembling porn on Foxtel with the least porn-sounding name in simpler terms.
According to its Vice President, Corey Price, “it’s an anonymous additional form of payment. Offering privacy-focused payment options is something we have been looking to do for a while”.
Verge’s founder, Justin Sunerok, seemed excited about the new partnership. “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.”
Moreover, it’s an open-source project that makes use of Tor, which covers your IP address through traffic-encryption and bouncing utilizing a through a chain of computers around the world.
Also, through crypto coin masks, a user’s unique IP address (which can be monitored and given back to you), the network of computers throughout the world was subjected to peer-to-peer routing.
Also included in the I2P, which relatively different in practice but possesses the same broad strokes peer-to-peer routing.
Paired with the so-called Wraith Protocol, Verge users can use public or prefer public or private blockchain transactions.
A cryptographer at John Hopkins University confirmed that “Tor and I2P are great. The problem is if you’re using the public blockchain, you are leaving tracks that are completely traceable,”
Similarly, Nutaku, and Pornhub partner, Brazzers, also adopted this type of payment for their users.
Justin Sunerok, Verge’s CEO, told his excitement and enthusiast with the partnership. “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.”
In its previous trailers and teasers, Pornhub communicated its message: that “porn [has] always been the tipping point with online payments, video streaming, VR—this [is] no different.”
