Verge (XVG) Explodes After PayPal Abandons PornHub

In a strange occurrence, Verge has experienced over a 30% surge in the last 24 hours after PayPal decided to abandon the adult entertainment website Pornhub. Verge’s XVG has exploded in value since PayPal broke the news on November 14 as Coin360 data shows. The XVG creators had struck a deal with Pornhub in April 2018 and their coin seems to be a major beneficiary from PayPal’s decision. Trade Volume The XVG network primarily uses the anonymity-focused networks including I2P and Tor. It also implements extra layers of encryption to enhance security. Currently, the token ranks 66th on the market capitalization list globally. During the time of writing, it is trading at $0.005086. Trading volumes have soared compared with $6,806,206 on November 14. On November 15, the traded volume stands at $18,244,214 representing a 168% increase. According to Pornhub’s 2018 Year in Review insights, the site reported 4.79 million new videos uploaded from amateurs, models and also content partners. That content fed into 30.3 billion searches translating into 962 a minute. Pornhub claims to be the biggest adult entertainment site worldwide. When Pornhub partnered with Verge and started accepting the token for payments in April, Corey Price, the Pornhub vice president, said that: “History has proven that the adult entertainment industry plays a critical role in the adoption of innovative technology.” Censorship-Resistant Token Legacy platforms have left the project in recent months without stating their reasons. But, speculators are heavily reliant on the major industry’s predicament to enhance the token’s outlook. Pornhub partnered with crypto payment and billing startup PumaPay in August 2018 to allow its users to make payments in several cryptos for different site subscriptions including PornHub Premium. According to previous reports from November 14, PayPal had supported payouts for Pornhub models. Some of these models confirmed that PayPal had blacklisted them for years before shuttering its Pornhub services. Like what you're reading?

Crypto Market And Bitcoin Bearish Continuation: BCH, EOS, TRX, ADA Analysis

The total crypto market cap is currently declining and it could test $220.0B support. Bitcoin price is under pressure and it is likely to break the $8,500 support area. EOS price is now trading near the $3.350 support area and showing bearish signs. BCH price failed to stay above the key $280 support and extended its decline. Tron (TRX) price is down more than 4% and it is approaching the $0.0185 support area. Cardano (ADA) price is now trading near the key $0.0420 support area. Bitcoin and the crypto market cap are currently signaling more downsides. Ethereum (ETH), EOS, Tron (TRX), BCH, ripple, ADA and BNB are under a lot of selling pressure. Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis Recently, BCH price started a fresh decrease from the $300 resistance level against the US Dollar. It declined below the $285 support and the bulls even failed to defend the key $280 support area. As a result, the price declined sharply and it is now approaching the $265 and $264 support levels. On the upside, the previous important supports near the $285 and $280 level may now act as a hurdle and prevent a fresh increase in the near term. EOS, Tron (TRX) and ADA Price Analysis EOS price failed to stay above the $3.500 support area and it declined below the $3.400 support. The price is now trading near the $3.350 support area. If there are more downsides, the next stop for the bears might be near the $3.250 level. On the upside, the $3.500 level is likely to act as a strong resistance. Recently, tron price climbed above the $0.0200 resistance area. However, TRX failed to gain strength above the $0.0205 resistance and started a fresh decline. It broke the $0.0200 and $0.0195 levels. It seems like the bears are once again eye the $0.0185 support area. Cardano price failed to continue above the $0.0445 and $0.0450 resistance levels. ADA price is currently declining and it is now trading near the $0.0420 support area. If there are more downsides, the next stop could be $0.0400, where the bulls are likely to appear. Crypto Market Cap Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap 4-hours chart, there was a steady decline from the $235.0B and $240.0B resistance levels. The market cap declined below the $230.0B level and it seems like there is a risk of another break down towards the $220.0B support area. On the upsides, the $230.0B level is an initial resistance, above which it could test the $240.0B resistance. Crypto Market Cap Overall, there is a risk of more losses in bitcoin, ETH, XRP, TRX, ADA, bitcoin cash, litecoin, EOS, stellar, IOTA, ICX, WAN, and other altcoins in the near term.

The integration with Changelly will also help increase the reach for all SLP tokens that are exclusively listed on Bitcoin.com Exchange.

It has helped the development of an ecosystem for BCH that replicates the variety of ERC20 tokens on the Ethereum network. SLP tokens can easily be created, traded, and managed on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain within seconds, with minuscule costs for each transaction. Support for SLP tokens will also soon be added to the official Bitcoin.com Wallet. “I am pleased to announce our newest partnership with exchange.Bitcoin.com. The Bitcoin.com community is one I have always been a very big fan of, and now our customers will have much better access to bitcoin cash and SLP projects with the launch of their new exchange,” stated Changelly CEO Eric Benz. “Providing the community with the most efficient means to purchase and swap crypto is our goal and mission above all else, and with exchange.Bitcoin.com we are continuing to fulfill our mission by making our services easier for our user-base, and effectively more wide-reaching.” Changelly has been operating as an instant cryptocurrency exchange service since 2015 and offers access to more than 150 cryptocurrencies on the market.

According to the listing announcement, the total token supply amounts to 210 million SAI and no further tokens will ever be minted. Currently, SAI is used to pay up to 50% of revenue back to affiliates. In the future, Sideshift is considering implementing further value-enhancing activities like a buyback and burn, paying stakeholders in SAI, and implementing merchant discounts. Sideshift has created a system where users can switch between more than 20 different cryptocurrencies and anyone with an access code can start swapping immediately. It came to prominence back when Shapeshift introduced a mandatory membership program. The service is also fully integrated with the Bitcoin.com Wallet which today achieved a major milestone with over 5 million wallets created since the app launched just a little over two years ago. It was also recently announced that Bitcoin.com Exchange will provide an initial exchange listing to support an interoperable mega-utility token backed by the Universal Protocol Alliance, the Universal Protocol Token (UPT).

Coinbase Joins Regal Assets to Offer Insured Crypto IRAs

Regal Assets, an alternative investments firm, partnered with custodian Kingdom Trust and crypto exchange Coinbase to develop and provide a fully insured Bitcoin and cryptocurrency individual retirement accounts (IRA) in the US. Coinbase Steps Into Crypto IRAs Bitcoin and crypto IRAs aren’t a novelty in the US, but the trio wants to take this financial instrument to a whole new level. The new crypto IRA accounts will enable investors to access the widest range of crypto assets directly via Coinbase. Besides, Regal Assets claims that users will enjoy low fees and will be protected by an insurance policy. Specifically, the insurance protection for the Bitcoin IRA accounts is worth an aggregate $200 million. Consumers will be able to choose not only from typical crypto offers like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Ethereum, but also from next-generation and more exotic tokens, including EOS, Tezos, Zilliqa, Chainlink, Maker, Basic Attention Token, and more. In total, Regal Assets will support 30 different tokens. This is the first time Coinbase has stepped into the IRA space and marks a promising new addition to the leading crypto company’s future direction. Regal Assets CEO Tyler Gallagher commented: Clients make all the decisions themselves when it comes to digital asset selections and allocation, but do have the option of guidance by connecting with their dedicated account manager. The company launched its first Bitcoin and crypto IRA accounts in 2017. The launch came soon after receiving a crypto trading license from the US government. Regal Assets has become the direct competitor of Bitcoin IRA. Interestingly, Bitcoin IRA just won a legal battle against Kingdom Trust, the custodian partner of Regal Assets. US Judge Rules Against Kingdom Trust Kingdom Trust acted as a custodian to Bitcoin IRA. However, the latter hired BitGo instead and moved its crypto IRA accounts there. Kingdom claimed that Bitcoin IRA used deceptive practices during the transfer of accounts. As a result, it decided to block customers’ access to their own data on Bitcoin IRA’s site. After a fierce legal battle, Bitcoin IRA announced earlier today that it won the case. A federal judge in South Dakota District Court required Kingdom Trust to fully restore data access to all affected Bitcoin IRA customers. Do you think cryptocurrencies are a great fit for IRA accounts?
