Last week, Mastercard and Visa announced that they would no longer allow their credit cards to be used on popular porn website Pornhub as result of a New York Times report on widespread unlawful content on the site. Published on December 4, the Times accused Pornhub of monetizing "child rapes, revenge porn, spycam videos of women showering, racist and misogynist content, non-consensual violence, and footage of women being asphyxiated in plastic bags," and said the platform was infested with sexual abuse content. Pornhub called the New York Times accusations "irresponsible and flagrantly untrue" in a statement, and executives said the decision by Visa and Mastercard was “exceptionally disappointing,” adding that it affects hundreds of thousands of models who rely on the platform for their livelihoods. On Monday, however, it became clear Pornhub has intentions of winning back Mastercard and Visa, as they removed all content uploaded by unverified users, reducing the number of videos available on the site to from 13.5 million to 4.7 million. Now, the website accepts cryptocurrencies as the exclusive method of payment. As credit card companies become more picky about who they'll process transactions for, will the general public fall out of love with credit cards? Montreal-based MindGeek, who describes themselves as a “leader in the design, development... and management of highly trafficked websites,” is the mysterious owner of Pornhub, RedTube, YouPorn and several other porn sites. In 2018, MindGeek recorded $460 million in revenue and attracted more 115 million visitors to its websites every day. Pornhub attracts 3.45 billion visitors per month — more than Amazon, Netflix, or Yahoo — and their website is searched more frequently than "coronavirus" or "Trump".
