When signing up for Pornhub Premium, customers can choose to pay by credit card or cryptocurrency. At the time of writing, the crypto payment options are bitcoin, litecoin, tron, verge, and pumapay.

The platform started accepting verge and tron cryptocurrencies in 2018. It then integrated with Pumapay in March, allowing users to subscribe to the premium service with the pumapay token (PMA). Moreover, the platform introduced the stablecoin tether (USDT) in January as a payout option for models after Paypal blocked payouts to thousands of them two months prior. While the platform had discussed accepting zencash, now horizen (ZEN), the option is not listed at checkout.

Founded in 2007, Pornhub allows viewers to upload and share their videos. According to the platform, it has over 12 million videos, more than 130 million visitors a day, averages over 76 million monthly active members, and was visited 42 billion times last year.

Similarweb ranks Pornhub 9th globally and 8th in the U.S. Only one other adult video streaming website ranks higher than Pornhub globally — Xvideos ranks 7th worldwide and 12th in the U.S. However, in terms of the total number of visits, Pornhub had 3 billion visits in July whereas Xvideos had 2.95 billion visits.
