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

It is not the first time that a firm has announced plans that include cryptocurrencies. However, this time the case is quite different, PornHub, 9th most popular streaming service provider around the globe has started accepting Bitcoin and Litecoin as the payment method.

The porn streaming platform has made this announcement 2 years after accepting Verge (XVG/USD) and few other cryptocurrencies. PornHub becomes the first company to start from a smaller cryptocurrency and then expand its payment frame to major cryptocurrencies. This strategy will ultimately fuel more users and growth to PornHub.

As BTC/USD continues towards making progress, it is becoming clear that the world is now looking at its beneficial use cases. Besides, this news is not only important for the Bitcoin proponents, but it is also a pleasant surprise for the LTC/USD community as well.

Bitcoin will provide convenience to PornHub users

The vice president of PornHub, Corey Price voiced his thoughts in a press release which reads:

“As a leader in adult content with over 130 million visitors per day, PornHub is excited to now offer two widely-used and leading digital currencies for our users. Our team continues to pave the way for tech development, testing, and implementing new technology for everyday consumers far ahead of the mainstream market.”

Canadian headquartered streaming giant has a long history with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. PornHub was launched 1 year before Bitcoin came into being. PornHub has almost 3 billion monthly users and providing them with Bitcoin and Litecoin as payment option will enhances its user experience.

Lastly, Satoshi Nakamoto first voiced his opinion regarding the matter in 2010 on Bitcointalk.

Nakamoto said:

“Bitcoin would be convenient for people who don’t have a credit card or don’t want to use the cards they have, either don’t want the spouse to see it on the bill or don’t trust giving their number to “porn guys”, or afraid of recurring billing.”
