Pornhub now offers Monero (XMR) as a new payment options

PornHub adds Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) to its payments options

Pornhub, the world’s largest adult portal, expanded its payment options in September by adding Bitcoin and three other cryptocurrencies, including Monero (XMR).

But the recent ban of Pornhub by Visa and Mastercard has forced the site to accept only Monero (XMR) and other cryptocurrency payments for its premium service. Now, the site has options for 13 cryptocurrencies that users can choose from when making payments.

Pornhub is currently the 10th most visited site on the web, according to data from similarweb.com. Pornhub itself claimed the number of visitors to its site averages 42 billion a year. The site is one of the beneficiaries of the COVID-19 lockdown as the number of videos watched per hour on its site has skyrocketed.

Pornhub had to look for alternative payment methods for their premium contents since those looking to subscribe for the premium contents cannot use their credit cards for payments.

13 cryptocurrencies now added

Pornhub has now welcomed only cryptocurrencies as the only option available for premium services subscribers. Whether they want a $95.88 yearly plan or the $9.99 monthly plan, they have about 13 cryptocurrencies to make their payments from.

Pornhub is currently using the Probiller payment processor to leverage payments with cryptocurrencies on its platform. The crypto coins accepted include Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH) Ethereum Classic (ETC), Dash (DASH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), WAVES, Verge (XVG), Tron (TRX), Tether (USDT), Nem (XEM), Monero (XRM).

The premium services page of Pornhub reads, “Unfortunately, we are unable to accept credit cards at this moment.”

Excitement for crypto advocates

Crypto enthusiasts have voiced their excitement on Reddit forums centered on cryptocurrencies. They are thrilled that cryptocurrencies are the only payment options for premium users of the platform.

Several BHC fans talked about the massive adoption of cryptocurrencies by the world’s biggest adult video sharing site. One of them said the news is one of the biggest for the year when it comes to crypto adoption.
