One of the most important porn sites on the internet, PornHub announced that it will be accepting TRON and ZenCash. The decision has been taken after adding support for Verge back in April this year.
PornHub Accepts New Cryptocurrencies
In a recent blog post uploaded by ZenCash, they explain that their cryptocurrency was accepted as a method of payment on Mindgeek, the most important adult entertainment website network. At the moment, the company has different adult sites, including the flagship PornHub.
Robert Viglione, ZenCash Co-Founder, commented on the matter:
“We are excited to provide a private payment option for over 115 million daily users on the MindGeek websites! The exposure to the digital entertainment industry provides an excellent use-case for ZenCash by giving individuals the ability to pay for digital entertainment privately without fear of exposure. ZenCash uses the best privacy technology available on the market.”
The main intention is to allow users to pay for the content they consume without being exposed when they pay for it.
At the same time, this is important news for Tron, which was just able to purchase BitTorrent for $118 million dollars.
PornHub started accepting Verge as cryptocurrency in the platform, but it has recently suffered from instability, a 51% attack and other situations. For example, transactions were reversed because of that.
At the moment, MindGeek did not give any explanation about which could be the next virtual currency accepted in the platform. The company has in mind privacy focused virtual currencies like Monero, Bitcoin Private or ZCash, and may come to the platform in later updates.
It is also important to mention that payments should be done fast and as soon as possible.
Another virtual currency that could be accepted in the platform is Litecoin. Charlie Lee said several times that he believes Litecoin is a much more stable option than other currencies and has been operating since several years.
MindGeek explained about its future:
“It’s important that we continue to expand our crypto payment options to align with our community’s growing payment preferences.”
