Canada-based adult website Pornhub has resorted to receiving cryptocurrency from viewers who want to access their premium services.

It appears that this move was as a result of the decision made by world payment businesses like Mastercard, Visa and Paypal to stop offering payment services to the site.

The credit cards companies decided to suspend all forms of electronic payments using their platforms following a report by The New York Times that the porn site promotes uploads and downloads of videos showing minors having sex and women assaulted sexually.

Mastercard released a statement confirming its stands on breaking ties with Pornhub on Thursday. “Our investigation over the past several days has confirmed violations of our standards prohibiting unlawful content on their site…We instructed the financial institutions that connect the site to our network to terminate acceptance.”
