Pornhub will be accepting ZenCash



MindGeek owns and operates many adult entertainment websites including Pornhub, Brazzers, and 12 other websites.  People can now use ZenCash to pay for their purchases on all of these websites, including advertising-related payments for TrafficJunky and Pornhub’s traffic and advertising network.

https://blog.zencash.com/zencash-now-accepted-on-pornhub-websites/

Robert Viglione, co-founder of ZenCash, said in a statement that the payment option gives "the ability to pay for adult entertainment privately without fear of exposure."

https://www.coindesk.com/pornhub-taps-tron-zencash-crypto-payment-option/

Is this special for ZenCash or are they going to add a number of cryptocurrencies as payment method?


"Pornhub, announcing that it has begun accepting Tron (TRX) and ZenCash (ZEN) as a means of payment. With TRX and ZEN coins, consumers of adult entertainment will now be in a position of accessing premium content on Pornhub and its affiliated sites including Brazzers."
https://www.ccn.com/pornhub-will-now-take-your-tron-trx-and-zencash-zen/

I'm not sure about their plans regarding other cryptocurrencies, but this is major success for Zen adopation!



I am wondering how they make their decisions. They now accept Verge, Tron and ZenCash? Why don't they accept Monero or ZCash?

cause they aren't paying to get 'accepted' force accepted =/= accepted, This is done to purely hype zen and make people buy at higher rate without any fundamental. Plus nobody know how much of their 8.5% dev fund they use to get 'listed' without any reports,transparency word selfclaimed is just here to hype market

In less than 1 years zen get into overhyped category shitcoin

if it is true that they are hiding a 8:5% dev fund we need to raise our voices against that,

OMG, it's a very generous bounties campaign Shocked

Yeah the videos are for those who put in the effort and have the technical background (particularly for the first video).

The last one is more like outsourcing or subcontracting - it actually requires people to have some technical knowledge.

A bounty on how to set up a secure or super node with a simple video would be very popular too.

--- >  
Announced Fork will implement block reward changes  10% 10% 10% 70% as you can see on a picture.

 ZenCash did not ICO and did not pre-mine. ZenCash has a sustainable funding model which siphens 8.5% of mining block rewards into a non-profit organization pool used for salaries, continued development, research and development, and marketing. 5% is provided for financing of one or more DAO.  3.5%  go to the funding of the ZenCash Core team.  

This was never been a secret and it is publicly available information. You can check white papper.
Regarding transparency we have bi weekly update (every two weeks on Wednesday) and you can join and ask questions.

You need to find out more about Zen - investigate, then make an judgement about.

is there a windows based "how to" for windows?
Sorry but no, this was discussed earlier multiple times and one of strongest conclusions was that Windows is not so famous with its security features and as such it is not prioritized for support.

If you need any kind of thechical suport join discord channel: https://discordapp.com/invite/CEbKY9w
* Securenodes - #node_tech_support - is for technical help/info about setting up securendoes and #node_payout_support is for help/info with payments from securenodes

Is it possible to run Windows, and have linux (say ubuntu) run windowed on a separate usb, and run a secure or supernode through the linux window? That would be a way around the issue.

Do you have an opinion guy about Sidechaining? Since it's one of the major protocol upgrade the team is working on

Not sure if I understand well, but dApps will run on their own sidechain without having the main chain "damaged" in there is something going wrong. Overall, it's something positive showing that the team keeps working on the Zen platform

OMG, it's a very generous bounties campaign Shocked

Yeah the videos are for those who put in the effort and have the technical background (particularly for the first video).

The last one is more like outsourcing or subcontracting - it actually requires people to have some technical knowledge.

Yeah true that. I know there is VoskCoin who did a lot of videos about Zencash on YT

You can setup a Linux Virtual Machine with VirtualBox..And you can use it on Windows  Wink

Each of the following criteria must be met and maintained for a Secure Node to be eligible to recieve a share of the reward pool.These items may be added to or modified at any time. Criteria may change at any time.

Must maintain a balance of at least 42 ZEN in a 'stake' transparent address
Must maintain a minimum balance of .001 ZEN in a private address on the node for challenges
Must be available with minimal exception time for at least 92% of an earning period (approx. 1 day)
Must perform a challenge within 300 or under seconds
Allow 8 or more peers by allowing public connections on the configured zen port (default 9033)
Must maintain a valid public SSL cert properly configured for zen
Must not fall behind the current block height by more than 4 blocks
Must update to current versions of the zen and/or tracker software within the posted time frame
Must dedicate the host for the sole use as a Secure Node and provision the required level of resources (CPU, RAM/SWAP, Disk space) to consistently meet the eligibility criteria
Must not add, or utilise additional transparent addresses, except for approved applications
 

Note: only one public Ip address is allowed per secure node tracker (IPv4 or IPv6).

and how about fpga that can follow whatever algo there is, and most people wont even be able to run FPGA

btc was first mined by cpu, then gpu killed cpu, then asic came, what most people dont know is that before asic came there was a short time of about 6months that a few people were mining with PFGA and beating the crap out of gpu miners, the people who used fpga to mine didnt let the public know about this because they had a huge advantage over gpu miners

fpga mining was only publicly announced that time when the fpga miners were selling theyr rigs because they lose to asics, so we fork and gpu mining is still dead because there are people here who has fpga and thus is promoting to go anti asic so that theyr fpga can continue to dominate over gpu miners

it already is a fact that gpu mining is dead, we only have to choose either fpga or asic

fpga, most people cant use due to high requirement of programming needed(vhdl and verilog, plus know some basic electronics, not to mention before you learn those vhdl and verilog you ahve to know other programs also), to buy you can buy direct from manufacturer, cost of 1 unit is high, good thing about it is you can transfer to whatever algo there is faster than devs can fork to a new 1(only if your a good fpga engr)

asics, plug n play, bad about asic is you stay with 1 algo(dont know how ai asics can be used in the future), can buy direct from manufacturers

so its just a matter of... we all learn how to program our own bitstreams for fpga or we use plug n play asics, btw there have been fpga mining on equihash even before asics came and they have been mining with fpga on equihash for a long time already most people just dont know

just to give some people an idea of how fpga performance is, take out asics in the picture, an fpga that was made 6years ago to mine btc compared to the best gpu we have now and mine btc, that fpga still wins by a mile and only runs on 40watts

You might want to read about PROG PoW algorithm.  It effectively renders ASIC's "AND" FPGA's very close to an EVEN KEEL with GPU's in hash rate AND power consumption at [1.1 to 1] or [1.2 to 1].  Which is the MAIN reason I'm trying to encourage ZEN Developers to switch to PROG Proof of Work. The link below is a lot to read with discussion among developers but it's worth the read.

Once you've read it, you'll understand WHY we should be careful about making flat statements in this profession.

have you heard of intel developing custom chips to become programmable? they just got eASIC and pouring resources from altera and intel to eASIC for that research

Ding Ding Ding!

Zencash is in the Top 100 cryptocurrencies on Coinmarketcap today. The price will surely increase the next week and so Zen will go up again for sure

It's only a mini FPGA that would still be limited by the PROG PoW algorithm.  As for how much of a ratio that would equate to when compared to GPU's remains to be seen.
