XVG Pornhub Partnership Not Enough to Save Verge

Back in April of this year, Verge (XVG) revealed a mysterious partnership that was expected to bring the coin to the new heights. The partnership, as we know now, was with adult entertainment website, Pornhub. However, it would seem that the XVG Pornhub partnership was not enough to save Verge from sinking.

Verge goes down despite XVG Pornhub partnership

The partnership between Verge and adult entertainment giant came as a big surprise for the XVG community. Pornhub was even commended by many for trusting in cryptos and introducing them as a payment option. Even the media was excited, calling this the biggest partnership in the history of cryptos. In fact, many believed that this will lead to a mass crypto adoption and that it will even change the stance toward the digital currencies, in general.

For a time, this seemed to be true, as the price of Verge skyrocketed once the partnership was first revealed, back in April. However, the price surge did not last for long, and XVG-Pornhub partnership ended up being only a temporary boost for Verge.

The reasons behind the doom of Verge are no secret. Not only has the entire year been a disaster on the crypto front, but the coin even got hacked via a 51% attack. The attack affected over 35 million coins in around 5 hours, which has left deep scars on Verge.

Soon enough, the coin started dropping, and over the course of a few months, it landed at the 39th place on CoinMarketCap’s list. Naturally, its price went down as well, and the coin is currently valued at only $0.013661 per unit.

Pornhub decides that going crypto is the right choice

Pornhub, on the other hand, realized that going crypto was a good call. However, choosing Verge probably was not. Because of that, the website quickly became interested in other coins, like VIT (Vice Industry Token), ZenCash and TRON (TRX). Soon after that, they also entered into a partnership with PumaPay in order to make crypto payments more easier for consumers.

While great for the crypto world, the new partnership also affected Verge in a negative way, as the coin was no longer the only crypto on Pornhub. With everything that happened up to that point, Verge continued to drop until it reached the position it holds today. Obviously, Pornhub wasn’t interested in saving Verge. Even so, the coin tried entering new partnerships after XVG Pornhub deal backfired, but it did not help much, as we can see today.

In the end, many believe that Pornhub just used XVG, especially since it benefited from this partnership more than the crypto has. In the meantime, the crypto market continued to be unfriendly all the way until a short break in August, which also wasn’t too good for XVG. Whether the coin can make a comeback or not is anyone’s guess. As for the crypto community, the fall of any coin is a tragedy, and many hope that Verge will eventually find its way back.
