Tube8 and VIT to reward with crypto
This has been made possible after the subsidiary of Pornhub struck a partnership with Vice Industry Token (VIT), an adult entertainment cryptocurrency and blockchain, which is revolutionizing the way you enjoy adult entertainment. Adult entertainment already bears the reputation of being an initial adopter of blockchain technology and with the partnership might possibly be one of the most noteworthy breakthrough of blockchain into the mainstream. Robin Turner, a Tube8 spokesperson sees the partnership as a “paradigm shift” in the adult entertainment industry, has reportedly said that the two companies have aimed to expand their user bases and enhance the engagements with “their respective products”. “For as long as I can remember, getting paid to watch porn was always a pipedream; one that was always dreamed about, but never fully realized. Now however, with the introduction of VIT, we are marking a paradigm shift in how people consume adult entertainment. As opposed to having to fork over money to consume content, which some sites require, our users will get paid to consume our free content. The more they interact with our videos, the more money they earn.” Users will be able to avail this facility by the end of the current year. Explaining how the blockchain of VIT works, Turner said that the blockchain is based on Graphene and has the capability to handle the required number of transactions without accepting any fee, “unlike Ethereum”. Fully decentralized VIT, employs a Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS). “It is the only true working fork of Steem in existence,” he added. Image via Shutterstock Join our Telegram group
