Tron to be Accepted as Payment Method on Pornhub

Popular adult entertainment website, Pornhub recently announced about adding Tron (TRX) as a payment method option on their platform. In addition to TRX, the company also reported that another cyprocurrency, ZenCash will also be accepted.

Tron Foundation was quick to confirm the announcement from their side as well, twitting on their official page about the new cooperation. The original post by the company stated: “Porhub is now accepting TRX! The leading adult website will soon offer TRX as a payment method. With over 85 million daily visitors, Pornhub is currently ranked 13 across all website categories in the world”.  

Back in April 2018, it was reported that Pornhub added Verge as another payment method and hence this next move by the company made it possible to have three different payment options in cryptocurrencies.

As officially reported by the company, Pornhub had 28.5 billion visits last year. The addition of TRX and ZEN will also be payment methods acceptable for Pornhub purchases and streaming, in addition to the site’s traffic and advertising network. The three coins will also be accepted on 13 additional adult-oriented sites which are owned by MindGeek that is the parent company of Pornhub.

The Vice President of Pornhub, Corey Price earlier commented on the main advantages of cryptocurrencies over fiat currencies stating: “decentralized payment systems have continued to grow in popularity, and cryptocurrency adoption is exploding across a broad economic spectrum. Today, cryptocurrencies are especially viable in the adult entertainment industry because they are privacy-centric and incorporate more anonymity tools than traditional tender”.

Meanwhile Pornhub gives importance to the suitability of cryptocurrencies that enable to have high privacy for users and hence Tron may be rather different from the fellow coins. While ZenCash and Verge are mainly known for being rather privacy coins that hide transaction data and addresses, Tron still possesses no certain method to make transactions private.
