Pornhub is now accepting Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) as payment for their premium services. The company has adopted Verge since 2018 and later added several other cryptocurrencies, but this is the first hit for the major league. Pornhub VP Corey Price said in a press release:

As a leader in adult content with over 130 million daily visitors, Pornhub is proud to offer two leading and widely used digital currencies to our users. Our team continues to pave the way to developing, testing, and implementing new technologies for consumers every day, well ahead of the mainstream market. ”

Pornhub is a year older than Bitcoin and was founded in 2007 in Montreal, Canada. It is currently ranked the 9th most popular website in the world with 3 billion visitors every month.

Cryptocurrencies and pornography are forever obscure in the subconscious community. These dates relate to the days before Bitcoin, when many believed that cypherpunk porn would be the first to adopt non-government digital currencies. Satoshi Nakamoto himself expressed similar views in 2010:

“Bitcoin would be suitable for people who do not have credit cards or do not want to use the cards they have, or do not want their husband to see them on the account, or do not trust giving a number to” porn boys, “or are afraid to return the bills.”
