Adult Entertainment Site CamSoda Will Let Users Pay For Services Using Bitcoin
The adult entertainment industry has been connected with the crypto sector for a while now. Back in 2017 when the value of Bitcoin (BTC) started to go up, many adult services started to offer crypto payments. Many businesses, however, did not decide to accept these payments at the time, but it looks like the situation is slowly changing for the better.
According to a new report made by The Next Web’s Hardfork, an adult entertainment company called CamSoda has recently decided to integrate crypto into its payments. The reports indicate that seven tokens can be used to pay for the services of the platform: Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Tron (TRX) and also the privacy coins Zcash (ZEC) and Monero (XMR).
Daryn Parker, the vice president of the company, told the crypto media outlet that the company was seeing more adoption of the crypto technology lately and that they decided to give their users “what they were asking”, so basically, they are catering to an existing demand.
Cryptos will be accepted as the payment for many functionalities of the platform. Before them, you could only use a credit card or Paypal to pay for live shows, private chats, etc.
CamSoda Already Has a History With Cryptos
This is far from the first time that CamSoda decided to launch a crypto-related campaign, as the platform has launched a service called BitCast at the height of the crypto boom in December 2017. With this service, the users could pair their interactive sex toys with the performance of the cryptos that were faring better in the market. If that seems weird to you, it’s because it was.
The company had another pretty creative idea when it launched CockBlockchain, a platform that let the users earn some cryptocurrency by sharing their nudes with the system.
Other Adult Entertainment Companies Followed the Crypto Path
Several other companies decided to follow a similar path. One of them was Pornhub, the largest porn site in the whole world. Since April 2018, the users are able to use cryptos to pay for their subscriptions on the system. However, only 1% of them have paid so far.
Despite the low proportion of users that have chosen to pay this way, the company is pretty confident that the numbers will increase with time and that it was a good idea to start crypto payments, as they are offering more diverse methods for their clients to access their services this way.
How many CamSoda users will actually use crypto to pay for the services? That we still don’t know, but the company has a solid background in dealing with the crypto world, so we expect that more than 1%.
