Popular Porn Website VRPorn.Com Quietly Adds Litecoin Payments

Francisco Memoria
  • A popular VR porn website has quietly added Litecoin (LTC) payments using GoCoin as a payment processor.
  • The move comes after MindGeek - who owns Pornuhb and Brazzers - started accepting Verge (XVG).

VRPorn.com, a website that claims to be number one when it comes to virtual reality porn, has recently started accepting Litecoin payments, according to its premium subscriptions page. The website is seemingly using cryptocurrency payment processor GoCoin.

Notably, GoCoin allows companies to accept various cryptocurrencies besides Litecoin. As covered, travel booking site CheapAir has recently started accepting Bitcoin Cash,  Litecoin, and Dash using the same payment processor.

Back in April, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee reached out to the world’s largest porn site, Pornhub, to see it would be interested in accepting LTC after it was revealed it was partnering with privacy-oriented cryptocurrency Verge (XVG).

In his tweet, Lee asked the company to reach out to him, and while Pornhub decided to roast him in response by asking about him selling all his LTC holdings, it’s possible VRPorn.com did reach out. The website hasn’t seemingly issued any official statement at press time, although Lee’s cryptocurrency is a payment option on its website.

The porn industry has seemingly started adopting cryptocurrencies on a wide scale, as an increasing number of platforms announce they accept cryptos. Recently, the Vice Industry Token (VIT) revealed it was going to be included in twenty adult websites as part of a partnership. One of those websites is that of alleged Trump mistress Stormy Daniels.

The VIT token was specifically created for the porn industry, as it allows users to earn while consuming content. The money they earn can then be used to pay for premium content on adhering websites. Litecoin, on the other hand, was created as the “silver to Bitcoin’s gold.”

While the number of users VRPorn.com reaches is unclear, Verge’s partnership with MindGeek and Stormy Daniels’ media coverage help cryptocurrencies reach millions of potential new users on a daily basis
