Bitcoins Could Provide Boost to XXX Industry

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – In the march towards digital currency, the increasingly popular payment platform known as bitcoins could find success in an interesting field: porn.

The electronic P2P cash system is increasingly becoming adopted and accepted by more companies. However, its ability to provide some anonymity without entering credit card details could certainly make it attractive in the world of XXX.

“I really don’t know much about the profile of an average Joe who pays for porn, but if that was me, I would not like to have this listed on my credit card statement,” stated computer programmer Kacper Cieśla in a report from the Huffington Post.

It appears to be a natural fit. Former Goldman Sachs currency trader Fred Ehrsam emphasized in the report that the porn industry had broken ground in the past, telling the Huffington Post: “Generally speaking, porn is an early adopter of anything related to new technology. If you look back, they were the first to adopt many of the new video formats.”

The value of bitcoins has been up and down as providers of the digital currency have faced the increasing wrath of hackers in recent months. In April, MT.Gox faced its third DDoS attack while Instawallet was indefinitely shut down by another incident.
