Verge founder Justin Sunerok said, “Pornhub is a global organization with nearly a hundred million daily users. This partnership represents an enormous market with a global reach that will compete with fiat currencies. It’s huge for Verge and we’re extremely excited to finally be able to announce it.”

Corey Price, VP at Pornhub stated, " While the adult industry is becoming more mainstream, there are still a lot of people who prefer to be secretive or private about it. By accepting crypto, we are making the purchasing of content even more secure, which will appeal to those people. With the added incentive, we expect to see an uptick on the purchasing of content.”

Made in 2014, the Verge digital currency has raised alerts as of late with charges of paid pumping by John McAfee, and it's current crowdfunding endeavors that were utilized to "support development" of the association with Mindgeek. The adult media outlet, while ordinarily speedy to receive new advances, dawdled on cryptographic forms of money. A push occurred in 2013, with a few organizations, including Wicked Pictures, making prior arrangements to do as such, yet none of those happened as expected, to some degree in light of the fluctuations of the cash's esteem.
