StormyDaniels.com will now be accepting the Vice Industry Token (VIT) as payment for viewing the website’s premium adult video content, PR Newswire reports today, May 25.
The Vice Industry Token raised $22 mln in Ethereum (ETH) in 24 hours during its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in February. The token, which can be earned by watching and interacting with videos on StormyDaniels.com and other sites on the VIT network, can then be used to purchase premium content across the network.
CEO of Vice Industry Token Inc. Stuart Duncan said of the move to accept VIT that "even Stormy Daniels understands the value of cryptocurrency:”
“We are thrilled that she chose our blockchain technology to implement on her site."
Darkreach Communications, which manages StormyDaniels.com, will also be adding a VIT option for all of the over 20 adult content sites in its repertory.
Rob Murray, the president of Darkreach Communications, called the decision to add a crypto option to the company’s adult entertainment sites a “no brainer for me:”
"With VIT, everyone is going to make money – from the users on my sites, to myself and the performers. The way the VIT blockchain works, we all get a piece of the token, and the guaranteed genuine data is the icing in the cake."
Cryptocurrency has shown up in the adult industry sphere before. In mid-March, Playboy announced plans to release a crypto wallet that would allow viewers to use VIT to pay for their premium video content. And in April, privacy-centered altcoin Verge announced that it could be used on adult entertainment video site Pornhub.
