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).

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
