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).

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
