Podcast 12: Cryptocurrency In The Adult Industry (2/7/2018)

Live Podcast: Porn and Crypto – Blockchain In The Adult Industry

We’ve got a lot of things dealing with cryptocurrency in the adult industry, so we decided to just make it the theme! Crypto is a big thing in both adult and mainstream right now. If you’re following all the major adult industry news outlets (or just following along on our podcast series), you’ve noticed that there’s now a new porn ICO happening weekly.

There have also been numerous scams as well as companies going belly-up in adult crypto. It’s important to realize that crypto is a high-risk investment. It’s also important to realize that if you’re working with a network that only pays out in their coin, that coins value is only based on whether you can cashout or spend, and what you can get for it. A lot of these companies want their partners to hold onto the coin as an investment. If that investment disappears, you’re screwed.

Another major happening is the tanking of Bitcoin and how that might impact crypto currencies as a whole. Did the bubble burst and are prices going to normalize? Will there be a new crypto to sour as Bitcoin loses traction? Will that new crypto be a “rinse and repeat” of what happened to Bitcoin? Does this make Bitcoin more feasible or less feasible for adult?
