Tweets of the Week: #8 PayPal Pulls Out of Pornhub

CoinSpice has no idea what Pornhub is, so it is difficult for us to figure out exactly why online payments giant PayPal would end its arrangement with the multifaceted adult web portal. We were shocked to learn such a site existed as we never visited it, especially not daily, and no way many, many times. However, we reached out to Pornhub, and the company’s Communications Director Chris Jackson sent us a statement from VP Corey Price.

“We are all devastated from yesterday’s decision from PayPal,” Price explained, “to stop payouts to over a hundred thousand performers who rely on them for their livelihoods. The payments PayPal is referring to are only the payments that were being made to models in our Model Program. Pornhub’s growing Model Program was launched in order to empower content creators within the adult industry by providing a secure, highly visible, sex-positive space on our platform to sell and share original video content and earn a large share of the advertising revenue on their free to watch videos. Decisions like that of PayPal and other major companies do nothing but harm efforts to end discrimination and stigma towards sex workers. While we still have several payment methods for our models available, we will continue to add more sex worker-friendly ones and explore cryptocurrency options in the near future.”

CoinSpice followed up by asking which cryptos Pornhub might be considering. “At this point, we can’t provide that information, but we are evaluating adding other cryptocurrency payout options,” Jackson responded. No word yet as to exactly what service Pornhub provides because we don’t know what Pornhub is. At all. Nope.
