The popularity of crypto-currencies

The actors of adult content seem to be fond of crypto-currencies. According to one of the leaders of the platform, approximately 10% of the actors in porn choose to be paid in crypto-currencies. To justify this enthusiasm for crypto-assets, a spokesman for the company has advanced:

“We have found that the speed and low cost of transactions, combined with the benefits of anonymity, render this mode of payment is particularly attractive to professionals in relation to tender-traditional “.

This discrepancy would be explained by the fact that only 1% of the users of the platform to settle their subscription in crypto-currencies. However, the user payments represent an overwhelming majority of trades made on the platform.
