Pornhub Accepts Crypto


Verge is focused on anonymity, which is way Pornhub executives chose to offer Verge over other cryptocurrencies such as the notorious Bitcoin. Verge, like most other cryptocurrencies, contains a public ledger where transactions can be viewed. However, Verge uses an anonymous network layer, I2P to hide specific transactions’ IP addresses and locations.


Verge currently has a relatively high circulating supply and as of today, when the announcement was made, the coin is worth about $0.08 USD and ranks #21 in the charts.


Pornhub VP, Corey Price stated, “We’ve been looking at crypto for quite some time,” adding that Pornhub’s partner sites did accept cryptocurrencies back when Bitcoin was still emerging in the scene. Still, Pornhub wasn’t one of the sites to include cryptocurrency as a payment method back then.

Price says that even though “overall adoption is relatively low, we think [cryptocurrency] has gained enough steam for us to penetrate the market.”


Update: November 3rd, 2019


Pornhub now accepts Crypto coins Tron and ZenCash.

Corey Price, vice president of Pornhub, said in a statement:


“Here at Pornhub, it’s important that we cater to our users’ ever-changing payment preferences and, as such, that means accepting cryptocurrencies as a payment method, which provide users with anonymity and security. We look forward to continuing to stockpile our arsenal of cryptocurrencies, providing our fans with more payment methods than ever before. Hopefully we are the precursor for widespread adoption across the industry.”
