Ever dreamed of chartering your own private jet? If so, and you invested in Litecoin early, you might now be able to do just this.
As of June 2nd, 2018, private jet booking service Tap Jets, has announced that it will be accepting Litecoin to cover private jet charter costs, whenever users book flights via the Tap Jets booking platform. Meanwhile, Litecoin itself has also announced an even more surprising (some might even say risque) payment partnership. Namely, with adult entertainment platform, VRPorn.
Why are More Startups & Retailers Adopting Litecoin?
Thanks to Litecoin’s superior payment settlement speeds and reputability, Litecoin is the logical cryptocurrency of choice for many new startups and payment merchants.
Litecoin’s Risque But Logical Attempt to Tap the Adult Market
In mid-April 2018, the cryptocurrency market was rocked by surprise news that privacy coin underdog Verge (XVG), was set to partner with Pornhub.
Being the world’s biggest and most popular adult entertainment website, the Pornhub Verge partnership should have sent XVG prices skyrocketing. Sadly, despite spiking briefly at $0.077, the Verge price has since pulled-back to as little as $0.040. Pornhub’s brief flirtation with Verge, may, therefore, prove to be little more than a regrettable one night stand in the long-term.
Thankfully, Litecoin seems to be striving to succeed where Verge has failed. - This is thanks to news that new virtual reality adult entertainment startup VRPorn, will now start accepting Litecoin as payment for subscriber services. What is more, by saying on Twitter that he “hopes PornHub will open up to LTC soon,” Charlie Lee clearly has plans to woo more adult entertainment payment merchants.
Why Does Litecoin Want to Tap the Adult Market?
Some will no doubt be shocked by Litecoin’s attempt to woo the adult entertainment industry. The simple truth, however, is that taping this market could be instrumental in helping cryptocurrency go mainstream.
Will Tap Jets & VRPorn Help Litecoin’s Price Momentum?
At present, the Litecoin price is still hovering around the $120 mark. This being the case, announcements of new partnerships with private jet booking services and Blade Runner style adult entertainment services, haven’t yet worked to enthuse new investors.
Of course, while new commercial adoption announcements haven’t yet set investors into a frenzy, this doesn’t mean that they never will. In fact, if and when Bitcoin itself starts a renewed bull run, it will be coins like Litecoin with the best retail market exposure, which will immediately begin garnering the attention of investors.
