How to easily pay for Pornhub Premium with Bitcoin & Crypto instead of Paypal

Pornhub, the world’s biggest adult video website announced on Dec 15, 2020 that it will only accept cryptocurrency payment for Premium purchase & top up, ie. Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), etc. This means if you have no clue about cryptocurrency, you will encounter more problems for more products.

Today, I am gonna show you how to buy cryptocurrency in exchanges and how to purchase & topup Pornhub Premium. Let’s talk about how this started initially. Why is Pornhub going the “counter-productive” way in abandoning the widely accepted methods of payment, such as credit cards and Paypal, in favour of cryptocurrency, and in such a radical way?

That’s because the two Credit Card giants, Master Card and Visa announced they would stop supporting Pornhub after New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof’s report about Pornhub. It also means that renewals from the site’s 14 million paying members must be paid in cryptocurrency.

So how to purchase crypto and pay your porhub premium? It can be done in 3 simple steps:

Step 1: Retrieve your pornhub deposit address

1. go to Pornhub’s Premium member website:
Click “Upgrade to Premium”

upgrade to Pornhub Premium

2. Choose your favourite plan, and click “Get Premium Now”

3. Select the cryptocurrency you want to pay by
Currently, Pornhub accepts 13 cryptocurrencies including:

Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), BitcoinCash (BCH), DASH, Ethereum classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), Nem (XEM), MONERO (XMR), Ripple (XRP), TRON (TRX), Waves, Zcash (ZEC) and VERGE (XVG).

Here I recommend paying with Bitcoin (BTC), cause it is the most popular crypto, and is never a wrong choice. But if you prefer other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, the steps are basically still the same.

4. Enter the payment page.

The “Total Amount To Send” at the top shows how much cryptocurrency we pay in Total.

You can choose to pay through the QR code or Pornhub’s cryptocurrency deposit address below.

Then we can take the screenshot of the QR code, copy and paste the “payment address” to a text document, before you can proceed with the next step of buying cryptos and making transfer.

Step 2: Buy crypto via an exchang and pay to Pornhub Premium

Here I recommend DigiFinex, an established exchange that I have been using for years.

  1. Go to the exchange website or get their app

Or download the APP here:

4. Send your crypto to Pornhub

After receiving your Bitcoin(BTC), you can withdraw your Bitcoin from DigiFinex and send to your Pornhub address, which we retrieved in Step 1 (shown in the picture below).

Detailed withdrawal/transfer guide below:

->Withdrawal Guide for Website here

<Note> the following reminders, otherwise your withdrawal/transfer will fail and you may lose your crypto. Please proceed with caution:

  1. If you manually copy “Send To Address”, you must double-check whether it is correct. For beginners, it would be better to download the APP and scanning the QR code to add the withdrawal Address.

2. There is a service charge for withdrawing currency. I’d advice to buy a little more Bitcoin than you need to cover the withdrawal fee.

Alright, you will complete the payment for PREMIUM membership through the above method.

Let’s review the process:

  1. ->Register an exchange account here
  2. ->Purchase cryptocurrency here
  3. Withdraw the crypto to Pornhub’s deposit address

What is left to be done is simply wait for the success of withdrawal (transfer), and enjoy your 4K HD blockbusters!
