Update: On their blog ZenCash confirms the leaked information is correct and adds that not only Pornhub but their parent company MindGeek is included in the deal. MindGeek is an adult entertainment consisting of Pornhub, Brazzers and 12 other websites. ZenCash can be used to pay for products from these websites, as well as advertising-related payments for their advertisement network TrafficJunky.

We are excited to provide a private payment option for over 115 million daily users on the MindGeek websites! The exposure to the digital entertainment industry provides an excellent use-case for ZenCash by giving individuals the ability to pay for digital entertainment privately without fear of exposure. ZenCash uses the best privacy technology available in the market.”


Pornhub announced their partnership with Verge in May, but as it turns out, Verge isn't the only cryptocurrency that will be accepted. According to Variety, Pornhub has plans to add ZenCash $ZEN and Tron $TRX payments to the platform as well.

ZenCash is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency, which uses SSl certificates to be able to secure connections to their Secure Nodes. They are also building several layers and decentralised applications on their network. Read more about the project in our Upcoming: ZenCash article.

Pornhub VP Corey Price is a big fan of the privacy aspects of cryptocurrency. He states:

Decentralized payment systems have continued to grow in popularity, and cryptocurrency adoption is exploding across a broad economic spectrum. Today, cryptocurrencies are especially viable in the adult entertainment industry because they are privacy-centric and incorporate more anonymity tools than traditional tender.
