Tube8, a subsidiary of adult-entertainment provider Pornhub, is getting ready to launch a brand-new incentive scheme that will allow viewers to be rewarded for their porn-watching habits.

According to a respectable media source, Tube8 has officially entered into an understanding with Vice Industry ™ and will use the company’s native token offering to incentivize the Tube8 platform— as a result of which users will be able to receive VIT tokens for streaming and interacting with Tube8’s pornographic content.

Details of The Partnership

While the program is yet to be implemented, it is expected that the new mechanism will be in place and ready for use by the latter stages of 2019.

As a result of this move, Tube8 will effectively become the world’s first major adult streaming service to incorporate a unique token-based rewards program into its daily operational scheme.

Boasting of a customer base that provides the website with a total of 150 million monthly hits, it seems as though Tube8 is really onto something big here. In regards to this matter, Robin Turner, a spokesperson for Tube8 said:

“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”.

He then went on to add:

“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.”

More on the matter

Even though the idea in itself seems very promising, when quizzed about the specifics of how these rewards will be doled out, Turned did not disclose much. However, he did mention that:

“There are no fees but [Tube8 and Vice Industry Token] will hopefully benefit mutually by expanding their user bases and increasing engagement with their respective products through this collaboration.”

Also, while talking about why Tube8 chose to specifically partner with Vice Industry ™ and not some other blockchain provider, Turner said:

“It is the only cryptocurrency that is designed specifically for tokenizing and rewarding viewers of free content on tube sites. [Not only that] Anyone can earn VIT and anyone can buy VIT.”

Final Take

Whether this decision pans out well for both of the aforementioned companies is still up for debate, but one this is certain that with cryptocurrencies foraying into such uncharted terrain, the digital asset sector as a whole will be exposed to an entirely new customer base.
