However, as these new cryptocurrencies were added to the payment options, it’s observed that Pornhub has removed support of privacy-oriented coin Dash and PumaPay token, which were supported as of mid-December. This indicates that the changes have been effected since December without prior notice. Before the latest additions, the number of Pornhub supported coins was fourteen.

Pornhub Only Supports Cryptocurrencies for Some Selected Countries

It’s worthy of note that Pornhub only supports cryptocurrency payment options for some countries such as United States (US), United Kingdom (UK), and Singapore. While the platform supports bank wires for some EU nations such as Germany.
