Only1 raises 5 million dollars for a OnlyFans clone on Solana

In the rapidly evolving landscape of adult entertainment and blockchain technology, a new player, Only1, has made great strides with a recent $1.3 million investment round led by Newman Group, accumulating a total of $4.8 million to create a platform similar to OnlyFans on the Solana blockchain Solana.

This initiative promises a decentralized approach to adult content, but the big question remains: will professional creators from platforms like OnlyFans be willing to migrate to this new model?

Only1’s bold move: can a new blockchain-based platform attract creators away from OnlyFans?

OnlyFans, a well-known name in the adult content industry, has faced its share of controversies and challenges, particularly with its reliance on traditional banking systems that nearly led to a ban on adult content due to pressure from banks, as mentioned by its CEO. Additionally, the platform takes a hefty 20% cut on creators’ earnings, which has been a point of contention among its users. 

These factors make it a ripe target for destruction by blockchain-based alternatives like Only1, which offers a zero-commission model on tips and subscriptions and promises greater autonomy and resistance to censorship.

Only1’s approach does not only focus on reducing fees, but also solves significant issues related to content ownership and portability. On traditional platforms, creators are often constrained, as their content, followers, and earnings are locked within the platform. 

This makes it difficult to change service without losing a significant part of your audience. Only1 aims to solve this problem by leveraging blockchain technology to give creators true ownership of their content and a more flexible engagement model with their audience.

The appeal of Only1: resisting censorship

One of the first attractions of Only1 is its promise to resist arbitrary censorship decisions, a significant attraction according to Lucas Moreno, a professional creator on OnlyFans who is also crypto-skeptical. Moreno emphasizes the importance of such features, especially in light of the recurring changes in content policies on platforms like OnlyFans. 

However, he expresses concern about Only1’s decentralized content moderation strategy, in which community members who hold tokens vote on content-related issues. Although this may seem democratic, Moreno fears potential discrimination, especially because so far the platform seems to be dominated by female creators, which could influence the decision-making process.

Despite these concerns, Moreno acknowledges the appeal of a zero-commission structure on Only1, which could significantly increase earnings from the same level of subscriber engagement. However, the challenge remains in convincing his follower base to switch to a new and relatively untested platform, exacerbated by the general skepticism of the general public towards cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.

In addition, Only1 has announced that it will soon introduce a group of creators with a combined following of ten million, signaling a potential initial success in attracting content producers. However, the success of this transition will depend heavily not only on the technical robustness of the Only1 platform, but also on its ability to promote a diverse and inclusive environment that addresses the concerns of creators from different backgrounds.


In conclusion, while Only1 presents a new interesting model for content creators frustrated by the limitations and policies of platforms like OnlyFans, its success will depend on various factors. 

Among these, the ability to educate potential users on the benefits of blockchain, the ability to effectively manage moderation and discrimination issues, and the overall ability to offer a stable and user-friendly platform. 

As the landscape of digital and adult content continues to intersect with emerging technologies like blockchain, Only1’s journey will be an important indicator to understand if creators are truly ready to move onto the chain and embrace a decentralized model of content creation and distribution.
