Verge Uses Porn to Angle for Spotify Partnership

Love it or hate it Verge is one of those cryptocurrencies that gets a reaction. Crypto groups on social media seem to spend most of their time bashing XVG but there is no denying that the altcoin has performed well over the past two months and the team is equally active online. Following its partnership with Pornhub, the Verge community is now angling to get into bed with music streaming service Spotify.

Where Porn Goes, The World Follows

The Verge community would call the recent partnership with Pornhub a resounding success. They managed to crowd sale a whole bunch of tokens worth around $3 million at the time leading up to it which had the added bonus of pushing the price of XVG up in anticipation. To keep the momentum rolling the Verge team is now making the case for inclusion of the privacy base crypto coin on the Spotify platform.

Spotify has over 70 million paying subscribers according to reports, and this would make partnering with a cryptocurrency the logical next step to make paying easier. In a post on the Spotify community page under ‘Live ideas’ a Verge team volunteer going by the name ‘Dan’ wrote;

“We are extremely excited to announce that we have recently partnered with Mindgeek, a privately held company that owns and operates over 85% of all the adult entertainment industries websites and applications. As we have seen with past events in history, what the adult entertainment industry adopts – The world adopts.”

The post goes on to state how the porn industry has paved the way for a number of technological advances such as widespread use of VHS medium, the growth of the early internet, virtual reality, and now cryptocurrency.

It continues with a breakdown of impressive Mindgeek stats;

“Mindgeek has 115,000,000+ Daily visitors spread throughout their network of web properties and an average of 3,000,000,000 ad impressions served to dozens of millions of daily visitors. With all that being said – Establishing this partnership will inevitably ensure a massive increase in demand for a direct way for consumers to be able to purchase VERGE/XVG direct with their Credit, Debit and Bank accounts.”

Members of the core team are now getting behind the idea and the story is doing the rounds on social media, gaining momentum with every re-post;

At the time of writing over 3,300 people had ‘up-voted’ the idea on Spotify’s community page however there has been no official response from the company. XVG prices have not reacted and have fallen in line with the rest of the altcoins during the day’s market correction.
