Adult entertainment website Pornhub has added four new coins to its list of supported crypto payment options — XRP, BNB, USDC, and DOGE — The Block has checked on Wednesday. 

The move means Pornhub's more than 120 million daily visitors can now pay for premium subscriptions in the four digital assets. Notably, Pornhub has removed the support of privacy-oriented coin Dash and PumaPay token, which were supported as of mid-December. That suggests that the changes have been made over the past month. 

The latest revisions increase the number of Pornhub's supported coins to sixteen from fourteen before (see screenshot). It should be noted that Pornhub only supports crypto as the payment option for some countries, including the U.S., the U.K., and Singapore. While for some EU nations, such as Germany, it supports bank wires.

Pornhub doesn't support credit card payments anymore after facing a ban from Visa and Mastercard last month. The two payment giants cut ties with Pornhub following accusations that the pornographic website showed child abuse and rape videos. The allegations stemmed from an investigation by an opinion columnist of the New York Times. Pornhub has denied the allegations.
