TrafficJunky announces new Verge partnership
Online advertising giant TrafficJunky announced on Friday that they would include payment options for Verge XVG.
The advertisement network says they start the new service from May 7 onwards.
TrafficJunky is part of the Mindgeek group, the parent company that also owns adults sites Pornhub and Brazzers.
Last month, Mindgeek was revealed as the highly-anticipated new partner for Verge.
The firm introduced an option for customers to pay with XVG for their premium content.
Mindgeek describes TrafficJunky as “an innovative web advertising service that manages advertising on some of the world’s largest websites.”
The network serves billions of ads to tens of millions of daily website visitors.
Now, advertisers will have the option to pay with Verge’s XVG cryptocurrency.
The Product and Operations Manager at TrafficJunky, Rabih Boulmona, describes the moves as an obvious choice following the porn sites announcement, saying:
“It was only a matter of time before we followed suit.
“We’re excited to provide yet another convenient and safe method of payment our members can benefit from.”
For advertisers, the option to pay in Verge cryptocurrency will be available on request from Monday.
The network, which offers clients access to “over four billion daily impressions” says verified advertisers “will be able to fund their accounts using Verge and tap into the TrafficJunky network.”
TrafficJunky was teasing followers on social media that an announcement was in the works.
Twitter user XVGMarius made a suggestion the advertising network should partner with Verge.
The team responded saying:
“We’d tend to agree! Keep your eyes peeled.”

A positive response from the VergeFam
The highly-supportive Verge community, aka VergeFam, is responding enthusiastically to the news.
We like the cut of your jib.

Twitter users “Braams” highlights that 12% of all internet traffic is now offering Verge payment options.
The same spectator also suggests that the “moon” is a realistic target for Verge XVG.
The TrafficJunky social media team appears to agree with this sentiment.
