I need to program a plugin for Virtuemart 2.6 that executes a code whenever a product is added to cart.
Specifically I need to update the cart session data so that "paymentCurrency" is set to current front-end chosen currency.

What class do I need to tap into in order to update cart session when product is added to cart?

Your method wont work in vm3, cause it would be recognised as manipulation and deleted.
