In April, Verge cryptocurrency finally announced who their mystery partnership would be with, and it was a big surprise when PornHub was unveiled. However, the growing partnership between porn and cryptocurrency seems to indicate that the adult viewing industry could make good use of anonymous digital currencies.

PornHub and Verge are not the only instance where adult entertainment can be bought with digital currency. PornHub allows for users of the site to spend Verge in order to buy the premium services, but there are other ways.


With one of the most obvious names for an adult site, also offers a similar situation as PornHub does, letting its members buy a premium service with cryptocurrencies. The platform has been accepting Bitcoin payment since 2014. Video subscribers may have access to unlimited video streaming from a huge DVD archive library with no advertisements.

Naughty America

Another popular porn site, Naughty America boasts operations in 47 porn sites and boasts more than 10,000 porn videos. It’s one of the early adopters of Bitcoin payment as it allowed its users to pay through cryptocurrency also in 2014.

Playboy Plus

Tied to one of the leaders in adult entertainment, the Playboy Plus service is one that allows users to become members of the Playboy site allowing access to various HD quality videos and photos. The site’s Bitcoin payment integration is done through BitPay services.

Live Cams

Besides from out-and-out pornography sites, live adult chat sites such as Chaturbate and Live Jasmine have also recently joined in accepting Bitcoin. Chaturbate started only last year whereas Livejasmin has been taking digital currencies since 2016.
