Bitcoin (or others) for the Adult Industry?

Hi, everyone. I'm Cali Reign, a new, or I guess long absent returning member of BitcoinTalk. Active, in the adult entertainment industry. I was actually really shocked to see this forum still so active. I was a participant in GirlsGoneBitcoin, long, long, long ago. In the before for times, and have not really kept up on the industry.

In 2012-2013 there was a lot of talk about bitcoin (and I suppose blockchain in general) being used for improvements and optimization in the adult industry. Other than just straight payments (which ManyVids, Eros, etc) use, I haven't seen any real advances trickle down into the industry.

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to point me to any active adult industry projects that I might check out. Yes, it's really me, feel free to reach out on any platform I use. Same Username as here is used everywhere.

Thanks in advance,

Just a little more than a month ago, there was a campaign here by Devil's Dragon. Please visit their ANN thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5260322.0

I cannot remember the project names but I'm sure there were already a number of crypto projects on the adult industry being promoted and discussed here. There was also RachelX if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure though if these projects are still active until now.

Finally, I think PornHub is accepting Verge (XVG) and Tether (USDT).

In my opinion if you want a stable and sustainable source of income, just accept bitcoin as tips. Sure you could use those other projects like SpankChain, but projects such as those mostly seem to be temporary hype; and you might end up wasting your time due to the highly likely price crashes of these altcoins.

I'm not really sure what applications that could fit blockchain + adult industry except clients using blockchain for privacy. I remember this years ago, https://intimate.io/.

And this signature campaign, [CLOSED] THE LEGENDS ROOM Signature Campaign. But it seems that the website is no longer running.

Coindesk occasionally makes articles about Bitcoin and the adult industry, you might find this interesting

What Sex Workers Want to Do With Bitcoin

SpankChain Launches Crypto Payments Service for Adult Content Providers

Pornhub Now Lets Models Get Paid With the Tether Stablecoin

But you can always choose to work for yourself instead of relying on some company, that might take away your money or breach your privacy. Use social medias to promote yourself and accept crypto directly.

Hmm, I would not know what you are looking for exactly, I have seen several projects try to do something like that but none have solidified. I think it's easier for the big adult entertainment industries to use BTC as a form of payment, a couple of months ago big brands like Brazzers and Pornhub were accepting cryptos.

Here's the project I'm talking about, it's probably already dead or something.

Thank you! That's a good place to start. The DevilsDragon thing doesn't seem like a very useful system, more like a bunch of buzzwords to try to chase an opportunity. But maybe I'm jaded Grin

Pornhub definitely says they will pay you as a performer in Tether. I was ecstatic when they announced giving me the option to take USDT for my payouts for content there. Alas, their implementation is not the best. I tried three times to add my wallet address and they kicked it back three times. My favorite platform, ManyVid.com has a much better implementation for accepting crypto for payments, but I have yet to see the option to payout in crypto.

If anyone's going in the adult world then surely they have to be anonymous and hide the other world, I guess BTC stands greater chance of doing that can easily workout for the customers as well. Some of them got talkative wifey, bold, loving yet talkative, so man always wander here and there for fun, LOLZ. So yeah easy to get customers.

I have seen one user whose thread has been viewed more than 55,000 times!!! That's huge response from the BitcoinTalk forum and could be best for you to work in similar fashion.

there are lots of Adult coins that have come in the space but I dont understand how they struggle to thrive. With so much failure, adopting bitcoin for exchange for services and other products could be reliable at the beginning before the adoption of own coins with so many attractive packages on the own coin that can encourage adoption. If anonymity is what looks attractive they should improve on coin or accept better anonymous coins, a small supply of coin will be smart

I do not think that a person who has a certain number of bitcoin coins does not have other alternative cryptocurrencies with him. Bitcoin is more of a starting point in the cryptocurrency world. One way or another, you will have to buy and sell other coins sooner or later.

I think a lot of it (from the projects I have looked at) stem from a gross misunderstanding of the adult industry. Even when they appear to partner with known entities, my guess would be the partnerships amount to little more than a branding opportunity. Success in Porn (or escorting, camming, sugaring) is a lot more nuanced than "Take off clothes, get rich" and lots of the projects I have seen seem to have a "It's PORN WE ARE ALL GOING TO GET RICH" mentality. Ignoring how low margin and competitive a lot of the market is.
