Welcome to our Verge (XVG) news page. Here you'll find some of our featured Verge (XVG) Crypto content pieces as well as all our latest Verge (XVG)-Netcents Partnership posts.
Verge (XVG) Crypto Coin Adds to Pornhub Deal, Lands Two More Reputable Brands, Netcents & TokenPay
Pornhub and Verge (XVG) is a match made for each other, at least according to their latest happenings. Pornhub, the giant adult content company, has always valued privacy, the kind of secrecy that’s guaranteed by the Blockchain technology.
Verge (XVG) is a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency, different from the quintessential ones. And in its quest to make a name for itself, it has stumbled upon another company with the same aspiration – 100% privacy. Out of their symbiotic relationship, the two brands will shred off hurdles in their respective industries, while helping Vergecurrency earn more users and increase its market value.
But, while this isn’t the first amalgamation between Verge and any other company, all of the past associations haven’t matched this cadre. Pornhub has a name and it’s already a multi-billion dollar brand, something that will most definitely work on Verge’s advantage.
Away from Pornhub, Verge is teaming up with two great companies as well. According to the company’s Twitter page, Verge Canada is partnering with Tokenpay and Netcents. Again, the main idea behind these associations is privacy.
In fact, a Tweet posted on the company’s official handle said it all:
The Verge (XVG)-Netcents Partnership
Netcents is widely perceived as the leading next-generation online payment processing platform that’s focused on boosting mainstream adoption of cryptos, especially when it comes to converting fiat to cash. It helps crypto enthusiasts receive cash for their crypto assets online.
Right now, Verge (XVG) as enlisted Netcents to be its certified partner, a move that will also help boosts the reputation of Vergecurrency across the planet. This comes after the signing of the Project Mass adoption deal between the two.
Verge (XVG) will be available on Netcents credit card, its user portal, Instant Settlement programs, and the merchant getaway. Without a doubt, this is another win for Verge (XVG)!
PornHub & Verge Cryptocurrency Token Merge For XVG Coin Payments
If a technology offers decentralization, transparency, easy P2P sharing, security, and anonymity, it is bound to be adopted by the adult entertainment industry. As cryptocurrencies offer those features, now it started to penetrate the adult entertainment markets along with other industry.
On April 17th, 2018, Pornhub started to accept Verge (XVG) which is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency. This is massive for the crypto world as Pornhub is not only one of the biggest Porn Site, it is one of the biggest and most socially influential sites in the world.
While Verge cryptocurrency isn’t an infallible cloak of invisibility, it does incorporate more anonymity tools than traditional tender. Afterall, most people do not want their credit card to have NSFW content on it. Pornhub's move is also notable because it chose to use Verge, a relatively unknown cryptocurrency, over cryptocurrency front-runners like Bitcoin and Ethereum. It does, though, offer a few privacy-focused attributes that might make it particularly appealing to Pornhub clientele.
Pornhub is not the only adult entertainment company to flirt with the idea of cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Recently, CamSoda had teased with an interactive platform that makes your sex toys vibrate harder as the prices of cryptos soar. They even had plans to launch their own blockchain to let customers exchange nudes and get paid for it. However, unlike CamSoda, Pornhub has actually partnered with a company to achieve their goals.
Pornhub, along with several other major adult sites, is owned by a Luxembourg-based company called MindGeek; its sister sites Brazzers and Nutaku will accept Verge as well, with more to follow.
From the introduction of video preview to the handling of advertisements that prompts malware, porn sites seem to be driving and adopting the innovation. When tech giants like Google, Facebook, Reddit, Valve, and Stripe are closing their doors to cryptocurrency, Pornhub is going to bed with it.
Controversial Crypto Coin Verge (XVG) Announces New Blackpaper Along with Updated Code
The first announcement is that the fifth version of their blackpaper is now available online. The second announcement is that the alpha version of the fifth Verge Codebase is now available on Github.
The blackpaper goes into detail about the current state of the XVG network as well as what is in store for the future.
Among the things listed is its TOR integration. TOR stands for The Onion Router, which was the initial name of the project. TOR essentially allows anonymity while making use of layered circuit-based network.
It does this by directing traffic through a free worldwide volunteer overlay that has more than seven thousand relays that help conceal user’s location and other information and ensuring their privacy.
Its I2P integration was also discussed. I2P serves the same purpose as TOR, which is to ensure privacy. However, it is built to function as “network within the internet” and traffic stays contained within its borders. The core difference between I2P and TOR integration is that the former provides packet-based routing and the latter provides circuit-based routing.
Other things discussed in the blackpaper were the use of the Electrum wallet, Atomic Swaps, and Rootstock integration.
Also announced was the release of the Alpha version of the 5th Verge Codebase. The version out now is on Github and is only available to developers.
The purpose of this version is to test potential vulnerabilities and bugs before beta release takes place.
The reason for the rebasing of the code was that the network was hacked multiple times in the last year and this new version is designed to both be free of vulnerabilities as well as having some features unique to it such as stealth addressing and TOR.
The new Codebase is also free of the BTC login bug that was identified last year.
“We already took our time to investigate this issue within our latest codebase and we came to the conclusion that we aren’t vulnerable to this kind of attack. As added security, we are going to include the bitcoin fix into our new codebase as well,” the team said.
For now, the team is responding to feedback from developers before beta testing will take place.
New Verge Coin Debit Cards And XVG Code, Wallets And Smart Contract Updates
Verge [XVG] was supposedly created with the intentions of making cryptocurrency an everyday activity. It claims to be an improved version of Bitcoin and aims to ease business operations and individual needs in an efficient and decentralized manner.
At some point, its token, XVG, had reached new milestones, however, many of its community supporters were questioning the team for ongoing delays in launches. A post describing Verge updates has been made available by the Ethereum World News and it discusses the XVG Debit Card, code, Wallet and RSK. Here is a quick breakdown on what has since been shared:
XVG Debit Cards
Latest news regarding the XVG Debit Cards first stemmed from the team’s partnership with TokenPay, where the duo acquired part of the WEG Bank in Germany. Based on the claims made, XVG Debit Cards are still undergoing tests where the team is waiting upon TokenPay’s team to ensure that the debit cards have been “fully implemented” to “facilitate the use of Verge.”
Discussion on an apparent bug attack on Verge spurred confusion and worries within its respective community. However, XVG developer, Marvin Piekarek has since confirmed that said bug did not bring any negative effects to XVG and that additional changes were made to the code to tighten its security.
Verge’s latest wallets include the Core Wraith Wallets, which supports Windows, Linux and OSX systems. It has been proclaimed as the most secure, easy and fast wallet that conducts transactions in as little as 30 seconds (i.e. the first confirmation taking anywhere between 5 and 15 seconds – resulting in an average time of 15 to 30 seconds).
According to an XVG representative, RSK has been dubbed as the most secure smart contracts platform to date and that it will eventually be integrated into the XVG token. The end result will be a “privacy-focused smart contract,” as per an AMB Crypto report. No other updates have been provided as the team’s priorities rest in the former three areas.
