I suggest you ...

Accept Monero as a form of payment (bitcoin, cryptocurrency)

I would like to be able to upgrade my account to become a paid member. However, I refuse to pay via any method that could identify me (i.e. I will not pay via credit or debit card).

My preference for payment would be to use a cryptocurrency. Unfortunately bitcoin is much less private than it at first appears because your name is linked to the currency on the exchange where you bought it and every transaction you do is fully visible on the blockchain - including amount, sending and receiving address, and, often, your IP address.

There are currently significant efforts underway to de-anonymise the blockchain and link payment addresses to specific individuals, which would be trivial if sensitive data were to leak from any of the exchanges. Individuals using bitcoin on dark net markets go to extreme lengths to dissociate themselves from their bitcoin addresses.

Monero is a cryptocurrency that ensures full privacy by completely anonymising the blockchain: all transactions are completely secret - no one can tell where a transaction comes from, where it is going, or the value of a transaction from looking at the blockchain. It is a younger brother of bitcoin but its usage is growing significantly, with hundreds of millions of dollars currently held in Monero.

If you were to accept Monero as a payment option I would happily upgrade my account.

    Please stop spamming your cryptocurrency.
    UPDATE:
    Apologies to everyone who voted on this idea. I jumped to the conclusion that it was a single person spamming with multiple accounts because of the quick volume of similar comments. I’ve also had cryptocurrency spam for much smaller coins on this forum in the past. I see now it was a reddit post from the Monero subreddit.

    I’m well aware of Monero’s privacy benefits and popularity. It’s definitely in the roadmap to eventually offer crypto payments for Premium and I’m sure Monero would be one of them. Unfortunately that’s pretty far out right now as we focus on other types of global payments and improving our billing solutions in general. If I have a further update I’ll be sure to share.

        Any progress made here? One year passed since last reply.

        Seriously, the two things keeping me from buying a membership (to get rid of those horrible ads) are 1) I'm disappointed that PH keeps prioritizing videos in my feed that are EXACTLY of the nature I've tried to block under "do not like" on my prefs, and 2) there's not easy, private method of paying. Frankly, a crypto option seems so obvious I wonder why it's still "Far off" and not something PH wouldn't do next week.

        Have you tried using GloBee? https://globee.com/

        GloBee makes it easy to accept Monero and several other cryptocurrencies. It could be the payment processor you need to make this simple.

        It's a porn site dude, you aren't buying a fucking kilo of methamphetamines, or a hitman on the dark net. Grow up. Use your bank account like everyone else.

        Nobody has been warned about that gaping vulnerability during that time. People relied on Monero being private in those years and are now susceptible to being exposed which might even lead to loss of live at worst. It's completely inacceptable and irresponsible to tout that product as secure and untraceable when the opposite has been proven.

        Monero would be a really good solution - offering ease of use and above all - privacy, which is for sure one of the major factors contributing to the comfort and happiness of your clients

        Brett, thanks for your update! However "we focus on other types of global payments" would be somehow correlating with focusing on Monero ;)

        Ok thanks for the more detailed response. Take care.

        I'm not dismissing it immediately. I'm well aware of Monero. At the moment there are more important payment methods and types that I need to implement before the several thousand of Monero users.

      • p commented  · 

        The "spamming" is indeed occurring because this request was brought to the attention of a large group of monero users, but you are fools for dismissing it. There are thousands of monero users ready to pay for your service. Just because you've never heard of it you dismiss it immediately?

        Do your job and take some research instead of declining such a useful thing. Terribly Admin.
