Let’s talk dirty, baby! (Porn, Verge (XVG), VR and Cryptocurrencies)

Hey! Say hi to my friend porn! Yeah, one of the most popular things about the internet that nobody wants to talk about. Now don’t say you never watched or heard about it. The ill-reputed indulgence that might just break a crypto coin into the real world and make it “legitimate,” as it wants. I mean, let’s be honest. This world is all about porn and pizza.

Now say hello to Verge (XVG). It’s a cryptocurrency currently valued at USD 680 million that recently partnered with Pornhub, so it’s included as a payment option for premium subscriptions. 

It will avoid a lot of friction, and the charge will never appear on your credit card statement again. If you choose to buy your porn the crypto-way, things will be easier, faster, shameless and, with Verge, utterly anonymous and private (more on that later).

Pornhub is the seventeenth largest website in the USA and the thirty-third in the world. It has more traffic than Linkedin, Bing, or eBay. Their traffic analytics is just what every webmaster’s dreams are made of. Just think about it. 

Every visitor views 3.25 pages. It stays eight minutes on average. And only about 24.9% of users bounce. Verge can unleash Pornhub by plugging it to the blockchain. It’s just a deal made in heaven for both organizations.

There’s one more thing that makes this pairing very interesting. Privacy and anonymity are Verge’s core values. It incorporates to its blockchain a few algorithms drawn from the dark web in order to guarantee that every payment is absolutely reliable but that there is no way at all to track it back to the real user who made the payment as all original IP addresses are masked by the algorithms.

So what should we be thinking about sex, porn, crypto coin adoption, the evolution of humankind, efficiency?

While this is not widely publicized, Porn is an industry that has driven innovation in the past, and it could be set to do it again. The top search term for virtual reality is VR Porn, even more popular than VR apps, VR videos and VR games according to VRporn.com,

“Porn brings people into the general VR ecosystem where they then become consumers of VR devices and mainstream VR content, helping to grow the industry. Parallels can be seen in how porn helped VHS dominate the market, and how it helped grow the internet”

The site’s statistical study continues,

“There is a good reason that VR porn is finding a home on the web. It is the only truly open platform. Other major platforms, such as the Oculus and SteamVR stores, do not allow adult content. These other platforms are large, but when it comes to virtual reality websites, VRPorn.com recently surpassed Oculus.com to take the #1 spot.

This is encouraged by the development of the open specification WebVR. WebVR allows users to access virtual reality content directly through their browsers without having to download anything. There are no gatekeepers, WebVR opens up virtual reality to anybody with an internet connection. WebVR works on all devices, including mobile.”

So. Direct access, open, without any gatekeepers, available to anybody with access to the internet. Does all that ring any bells for you? It just could be that Verge is on to something humongous, by riding the steamroller that made the VHS industry profitable and drove big portions of the internet’s initial growth.

VR porn is the biggest thing in porn since the internet. Cryptocoins are the biggest potential revolution to the internet since the internet itself. Shouldn’t these two come together? At least explore possibilities? More importantly, could you possibly imagine what would happen once they do?

The partnership between Pornhub and Verge has been very misunderstood, and it’s giving Verge a reputation akin to that of porn. 

But with the number of eager new users and demand for the coin that this coupling will create, it could just be the secret ingredient that puts Verge (XVG) on the top. Of course, these all are just the thoughts, and you should do your homework before placing a bet on Verge (or any other crypto you wish to invest in, in fact).

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
