Bitcoin Accepted Here: Pornhub

Adult Entertainment site Pornhub accepts Bitcoin (BTC) as payment after adding the leading cryptocurrency as payment option for users wanting access to its premium content.

The adult sex platform made the announcement in a tweet yesterday, telling its subscribers that they could pay with both Bitcoin and Litecoin (LTC).

The move led many Pornhub followers to express their delight in being able to use Bitcoin to gain access to the harder content. No pun intended.

In response to Pornhub’s announcement, one follower, Joe Lit, simply said ‘fuck yes’. Enjoy Joe, and don’t go spending all your Bitcoin. Although we want Bitcoin adoption, we wouldn’t want you to be the next Pizza Guy.

However, not everyone is satisfied with Pornhub’s move to make the hardest money a payment option for their subscribers.

First Born Satoshi (a strange name for a member of the XRP Army) had a rush of blood and was obviously erectile at Pornhub’s decision.

‘That’s utterly stupid,’ tweeted First Born Satoshi. ‘Just allow payments via $XRP and it’ll cost your users nothing plus the payments would take only 4 seconds compared to hours that $BTC or $LTC would take.’

Maybe First Born Satoshi wanted to spend his XRP as long as he lasts in his dark, little room. Then again, if he’s spending XRP every four seconds he’d soon lose it all, but at least he’d have a strong right arm to show for all his vanished XRP.

Pornhub Has Been Pro-Cryptocurrency For A While

Launched in Montreal in 2007 and now headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus, Pornhub has grown to become the biggest Adult Entertainment platform in the world, but Bitcoin isn’t its first foray into cryptocurrency payments.

The company has been accepting payments with privacy-focused Verge (XVG) since April 2018, and it’s believed that PornHub will start accepting USDT, also.

Legacy Financial Industry Is Helping Bitcoin

Pornhub accepting Bitcoin and other cyrptocurrency payments surprises nobody in the space, but crypto is being helped by the stupidity of the legacy financial world.

In November last year, PayPal cut off Pornhub’s payment channel, which affected the lives of over 100,000 models who rely on Pornhub for income.

Of course, the sex industry isn’t something many are comfortable with, but these models make a good living from Pornhub subscribers. And as long as they have chosen to get into the sex industry, who is PayPal or anyone to control their livelihood? Pornhub accepting Bitcoin payments will fix this.

Of course, there’s much worse crimes going on in the sex industry, and these have to be eradicated. However, for anyone to take the moral high-ground and deprive someone of making a good living because it’s against their standards, need to wake up.

The world wasn’t created fair, and if this is how a person has chosen to make their living, then respect their decision. Bitcoin does this.

Pornhub Accepting Bitcoin Will Help Grow Adoption

Pornhub reported earlier this year that 10 percent of its adult performers prefer to be paid in Verge (XVG).

And now with the addition of Bitcoin and Litecoin payments, the platform now offers a much more liquid payment options for its 3 billion monthly users.

Verge is very limited and not many users will have paid using the altcoin, but with the introduction of Bitcoin and soon USDT, we expect to see more payments made in cryptocurrency.

Many see the porn industry as a perfect onboard for Bitcoin adoption and with Pornhub now accepting Bitcoin, it can only help with Bitcoin adoption.

Pornhub Popularizes Hard Money

Pornhub is no newb when it comes to the cryptocurrency space, and many think it’s long overdue for accepting Bitcoin as a payment option.

The sex industry is huge, and as the legacy financial industry continually makes it harder for companies like PornHub to operate, Bitcoin and the blockchain at large will become a natural shift for all sex platforms.

Whether you agree with the sex industry or not, it’s here to stay, and using Bitcoin as a payment will likely make Pornhub more popular, and Bitcoin even harder money.
