Pornhub subsidiary Tube8 has partnered with the Vice Industry Token (VIT) to reward visitors for watching or otherwise interacting with adult videos. The cooperation is aimed at fully tokenizing Tube8’s platform. The streaming service will insert VIT tokens onto its website and pay viewers for interacting with its services.
“Getting paid to watch porn was always a pipe dream, which are now turning to reality” Tube8 spokesperson Robin Turner said.
It is expected that the project will be completed by the end of the year. This step will make Tube8 the first adult platform that pays reward to users for activity on the site. The platform will migrate from the Ethereum blockchain to a forked version of the steem blockchain called graphene.
Tube8 did not tell how the crypto awards would be charged, but it is likely that the platform will set certain limits. It is precisely known that users will not have to pay additional fees for using tokens.
Tube8 joins Playboy TV and Stormy Daniels in integrating the cryptocurrency to its platform. Both Playboy TV and Daniels announced earlier this year that they would use the token as a reward system for viewers.
