Not as expected: Pornhub as Verge partner now accepts crypto payments

The mystery has been finally revealed and it is no other than Pornhub. Yes, that’s are right! After weeks of anticipation and claiming the mysterious partnership to be cryptocurrency world’s biggest partnership ever, today the name was disclosed.

After the successful crowdfunding of XVG, Verge community was extremely enthusiastic about the unknown partnership. Pornhub is the partner that will now accept cryptocurrency payments in the form of XVG.

Reportedly, Pornhub from now on will be accepting Verge as a form of payment for the Pornhub purchases that include Pornhub premium, HD and on-demand merchandising and services. However, it won’t be accepting XVG for the recurring subscriptions due to the price volatility feature of cryptocurrencies.

The VP of Pornhub, Corey Price stated via mail:

“The volatility of crypto is concerning for subscriptions with recurring payments. As such, at present, we aren’t offering it for recurring payments, though we are in the process of working to do so. Our services have fixed prices in fiat so the value in cryptocurrency will change”.
