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).

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…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
