You Can Soon Start Earning BTT and USDT for Seeing Ads on TRON TV

  • Justin Sun tweets that TRON TV will pay users in BTT and USDT for watching advertisements.
  • New platform allows users to stream content through the tron wallet. 

Justin Sun and the Tron Foundation have announced that viewers of TRON TV can earn BitTorrent tokens (BTT) and TRC-based USDT for watching ads on the platform. 

TRON TV Pays Users to Watch Ads

According to a tweet published by Sun, TRON TV is paying users to watch advertisements in the form of BTT and Tether’s TRON-based version of the USDT stablecoin.

Sun tweeted out a link to TRON TV last week, telling TRX users to join “millions of other viewers.” TRON’s founder also said that the platform would be adding licensed content in the near future, in addition to the recently announced feature to pay users for viewing advertisements. 

According to South Korean news outlet Coincode, TRON TV is a way for the TRON Foundation to expand its influence by tackling the business of content delivery. TRON was originally outlined as a revolutionary, multifocal crypto platform in its white paper that would disrupt the existing framework of entertainment, including television and gaming. 

Users can gain access to TRON TV directly through the TRX wallet or by visiting the officially licensed website.

Pornhub Adds USDT to Its Payment Options Using the TRON Blockchain

Adult entertainment website Pornhub has added Tether’s USDT stablecoin to its payout options for models, months after PayPal abruptly cut off the platform’s services.

According to the company’s announcement, the payouts are set to be conducted using the TRONLink wallet. The announcement explains that since PayPal decided to “stop payouts to thousands of Models” Pornhub has been working on offering more options to its models.

It adds:

USDT transactions can be done globally within a few seconds and there are no fees. Since USDT and TRON blockchain have partnered up, we can now pay Models securely through TRONlink, a cryptocurrency wallet.

As CryptoGlobe reported, Pornhub initially started paying out in Verge (XVG) when PayPal cut off its services, although the company at the time revealed it was evaluating adding other cryptocurrency payout options. USDT was likely chosen as its peg to the USD might make it a more viable option than a volatile crypto.

Pornhub has been accepting cryptocurrency payments for a while now, having added TRON’s TRX and ZEC back in 2018. USDT has been growing on the TRON blockchain, so much so that earlier this year we reported 900 million TRC20 USDT tokens had already been issued, representing 22% of the stablecoin’s total supply.

Justin Sun, TRON’s CEO, said Pornhub’s decision to add USDT via the TRONLink wallet was a “brilliant way to support the victims of centralized payment platforms like PayPal.”

It’s worth noting that as of September 2018, Pornhub revealed that less than 1% of its users were paying for its subscription using cryptocurrencies. It revealed, however, it remained optimistic as a spokesperson for the firm said: “we expect to see widespread adoption of crypto[currency] and blockchain on our site in the near future.”
