First of all, I wanna say congratulations to the verge family on this historical partnership, but what I can't get is:
As far as I know, Verge is not a private company and it does belong to the whole community, right ?
How come Verge partners with MindGeek ? What do you guys mean by "partnership" ? Is this a fancy term that means "Accepting as a payment method" ?

Alright so Verge is indeed a community and not a company. This partnerschip came to be because one of the core marketing guys got contacted by mindgeek, and forwarded the contact to Justin (main dev). Justin with mindgeek, about a potential partnerschip in the future and the community made it happen through a crowdfund. (Crowdfund was held to help fund the intergration and marketing costs of this partnerschip). This is a very short description of how things went down. There are a couple of interviews on youtube that go in more detail.

So in this case, could we say partnership means Accepting as a payment method .Thank you so much for the answer.

No this partnerschip is exclusive to mindgeek sites, so just Verge is being accepted on Pornhub, Brazzers and Nutaku. More intergrations with mindgeek sites will come in the future. So it's not just some new vendor that accepts Verge among many other crypto currencies.

I got it now, Mindgeek will force all its sites to integrate Verge as a payment method, right ?
