Bitcoin and Litecoin arrive on Pornhub

A few hours ago, Pornhub, one of the world’s leading porn sites, announced that it has also started accepting Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) as payment methods for their premium services.

Verge and TRON for porn

Many will remember the story that involved Pornhub when PayPal, the digital payment giant, removed support for this platform and forced it to find other solutions.

A stablecoin, Tether (USDT), was added at the time, based on the TRON blockchain, which was a very fast and low-fee solution.

The news was also covered by Justin Sun, pointing out that 10% of the actors prefer this payment method.

Another asset used by Pornhub is Verge (XVG), with which about 15,000 transactions have been made on Pornhub, as noted by the CEO of Verge, Justin Sunerok, in an interview with us some time ago.

And today, 2 of the most famous, longest-lived assets known to many users have been added, and we may well see an increase of these transactions in the future.

The news obviously didn’t go unnoticed and the founder of Litecoin (LTC), Charlie Lee, also shared the news.

When will Ethereum be on Pornhub? 

It is interesting to scroll through the comments below the Pornhub post, where it is possible to read about other crypto assets that are proposed, including Sushi and Ethereum (ETH).

In the latter case, however, some people point out that it would be too expensive given its fees. Who knows whether one day we will also be able to see PornVisory‘s token as a means of payment, since it is a project dedicated to the red light sector.

What is certain is that the use of cryptocurrencies in the porn industry is a very valid method of payment, especially considering the immediate anonymity of the payments.
