Pornhub Expands Crypto List to Welcome TRON (TRX) and ZenCash (ZEN)

Pornhub

Pornhub, the 14th biggest website in the US, and 30th biggest website in the world has decided to expand its list of cryptos that can be used as a payment option. In addition to opening up to Verge earlier this year, one of the biggest Porn sites on the internet will now also accept TRON (TRX) and ZenCash (ZEN).

Pornhub adds two new cryptos as payment options

Pornhub is among the biggest websites on the Internet right now, with over 90 million users per day. This huge user base has recently got an option to pay for the site’s services via cryptocurrencies, after Pornhub entered a partnership with Verge back in April 2018.

Now, the company is looking to add more cryptos as payment options, and one of their choices includes TRON (TRX) and ZenCash (ZEN). TRON has experienced a lot of changes lately, with its founder, Justin Sun, continuing on the path that will lead this crypto to greatness. Thanks to Sun’s efforts, TRON has recently launched its MainNet, completed the token migration from Ethereum’s network to its own, and has even had the time to celebrate its Independence Day.

However, Sun’s ambition goes far beyond only that, and the founder of TRON simply doesn’t allow himself a moment of peace. Instead, he purchased BitTorrent for $118 million only days ago and has now managed to establish a partnership with Pornhub as well.

With the new partnership, TRON’s community, which is already extremely big, is only expected to increase even more.

Pornhub’s decision to add new cryptos comes as small surprise, considering that it already added its first one only a few months ago. The company has been known not to shy away from the new tech, and the acceptance of the three cryptos will make it active in the crypto market.

When it comes to Verge, it is a crypto dedicated to anonymity and untraceable transactions. TRON is a digital currency with focus on entertainment. And then, there is ZenCash, which also has a strong focus on online privacy and anonymous transactions that cannot be tracked.

Cryptos are popular and privacy-focused

Pornhub’s VP, Corey Price, stated that the decision was made partially due to the increase in popularity when it comes to decentralized payment systems. Due to their nature, cryptos match the needs of adult entertainment perfectly, since they provide privacy and anonymity to their users.

The decision to go for TRX and ZEN might have taken some crypto enthusiasts by surprise, considering that both of them are relatively new to the crypto world. Still, both are definitely rising coins, with TRX being at $0.0388 and a daily trading volume of more than $100 million. ZEN, on the other hand, is priced at $16.22. Its market cap is at $67 million, which is significantly less than TRON’s $2.5 billion, but both coins have their own strengths and advantages.

In the end, both are strong cryptos, that will only get stronger thanks to moves like this. If nothing else, they will definitely gain more exposure, and possibly even more users. In the meanwhile, the crypto-conquering continues with each new partnership like this, and the digital coins are entering more and more businesses with each passing day.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
