Pornhub, the leading platform in adult entertainment, has revealed its partnership with PumaPay, a provider for open source cryptocurrency payments, to allow users to make recurring payments for its premium subscription with cryptocurrency.

This new collaboration will enable Pornhub users to make payments for their subscriptions with digital currency like they were paying with their credit card – without needing to worry every month about paying, according to a recently published video.

PumaPay is a blockchain-based product of a Cypriot company called Decentralized Vision. Reports state that the “PullPayment protocol” processes transactions in a way that has “never been possible on the blockchain” prior to its conception. In addition to allowing recurring payments, the protocol also includes pay-per-use transactions.

Yoav Dror, the CEO of PumaPay stated the following:

“PumaPay’s technological solution, the PullPayment protocol, reverses the mechanics of a transaction, enabling merchants to ‘pull’ crypto funds from their customers’ account.”

He went on to say that the protocol also helps merchants avoid the “drawbacks of the current baking system,” namely high transaction fees, the lack of privacy, and chargebacks. This collaboration will also let Pornhub users pay by using PumaPay’s PMA token.

Currently, this feature appears to have not yet been incorporated, as the only cryptos that can be used for payment are ZenCash (ZEN), Verge (XVG), and Tron (TRX). The first crypto to be accepted by the website was XVG, after a community funding of $3 million was held for securing the partnership with MindGeek, Pornhub’s owner.

The website then added other cryptocurrencies to its list of payment options, namely TRX and ZEN. These two listings were made a short time after it was hinted in reports that Tron’s founder was interested in buying BitTorrent, which he eventually did.

But Pornhub not the only website in the adult entertainment business to open its doors to cryptos. The Tube8 website disclosed that it will be giving crypto rewards to its users that engage with its content. The reward consists of Vice Industry Tokens (VIT which have been created exclusively for the porn industry.

It seems that Pornhub is really making efforts to make its crypto audience happy with their growing list of digital payment options.
