Major adult entertainment website Pornhub has added Tether (USDT) to its payment options, while Tron‘s Justin Sun can also score another adoption victory.

The addition of the popular stablecoin has been announced just recently, explaining what stablecoins and Tether are to the users unaware of it. Furthermore, given the Tron – Tether partnership, says the site, they can now offer the option of using the TRONLink cryptocurrency wallet for USDT transactions. The site provided a step-by-step explanation on how to download and set up the wallet to send and receive USDT.

Pornhub is not new to crypto, as it started accepting Verge (XVG) in 2018, which is a rebranded version of Dogecoindark and which in 2014 split off from Dogecoin.

“Since PayPal’s decision to stop payouts to thousands of Models two months ago, we’ve been hustling to start the new year on a good note and offer you more options to make things a little easier,” says Pornhub.

In November last year, major payments company PayPal stopped model payouts to Pornhub, telling Cryptonews.com that following a review, they’ve discovered that PornHub “has made certain business payments through PayPal without seeking our permission,” so the giant said the transactions were halted.

Pornhub, however, found itself with a major payment option down, calling the move discriminatory. But they also told Cryptonews.com that they’ve been looking into adding other crypto options besides Verge for paying their models. Many members of the crypto community offered their suggestions to Pornhub at the time – Tron’s Justin Sun among them, who said that they need to add USDT-TRC20 supports too.

Sun tweeted today as well, announcing this latest development and saying “If you’re on @Pornhub, stop what you’re doing.”

Meanwhile, at the time of writing (10:40 UTC), TRX is trading at USD 0.016. It’s gone down 4.5% in a day and is unchanged in a week. Similarly, Verge is changing hands at USD 0.003, having dropped 4.7% in a day and 5% in a week.
