Pornhub Uses Cryptocurrency To Offer Anonymous Payments

The adult entertainment site has announced it will now accept payments in anonymous cryptocurrency Verge (XVG). This means now you now have the option to pay for your premium subscription without leaving any trails.

The pornography giant said it has been running trials with the payment system internally and testing has gone without any hiccups so far.

What makes the news particularly intriguing is that it also reveals Pornhub as the mysterious partner Verge has been teasing for almost a month now. Indeed, the cryptocurrency startup came under fire after earlier in March it asked its users to donate $3 million worth of XVG to reveal a “potential partnership.”

The announcement was slated to land on March 26, but Verge eventually postponed the announcement for April 16 and then one more time for today, April 17. Despite these delays and a healthy dose of skepticism from the larger cryptocurrency community, the partnership is finally official.

In a post from earlier today, Verge said the $3 million it raised from its community will go towards integrating their technology into the Pornhub payment gateway system, marketing, as well as hardware wallet integrations for Ledger and Trezor (even though Ledger says it is not aware of such plans).
