Adult Entertainment Site, PornHub, Adds Support for XRP, BNB, USDC & DOGE
Giant adult entertainment platform, Pornhub, is expanding its payment options for its customers after adding support for four other cryptos: USDC, BNB, XRP, and DOGE.
The popular adult content website with approximately 120 million visitors per day will accept premium subscriptions using the four virtual coins.
Notably, the platform removed its support for privacy-oriented digital asset Dash and the PumaPay token that had been added in mid-December. This shows that the new changes were agreed at the end of last month.
The four crypto options also raise the number of coins supported by Pornhub to sixteen up from fourteen. The addition of the four crypto payment options was hailed by Changpeng Zhao, the founder of the globe’s largest crypto exchange, Binance, which also owns the BNB token. CZ tweeted to alert his followers that they can now subscribe to premium videos using Binance coin.
Attracting 3.6 billion visitors per month, Pornhub is arguably one of the most popular websites in the world. Although most of its content can be accessed freely, the site requires its customers to pay to access premium videos.
In the past, subscriptions were payable through Mastercard and Visa. However, following allegations that Pornhub had published videos involving rape and child abuse, the payment platforms withdrew their support for the site. The firm has strongly denied these allegations stating that they conduct due diligence before posting a video.
With the cutting of ties with Visa and Mastercard, Pornhub started to list cryptos as alternative payment options. Puzzling, the addition of Ripple’s XRP came as a surprise to many following the coin’s recent delisting from major crypto exchanges.
Pornhub’s crypto payment options are widely used in the US, Singapore, and the UK, while in various EU nations like Germany, the firm supports bank wire services.
