Will Mining CryptoCurrency on Porn Tube Sites be the Way of the Future?

Published September 27, 2017 by Chris

Let’s face it, today’s internet users are adept at ignoring ads of any kind on websites. Adblock and other ad blockers which can even block annoying YouTube video ads are gaining popularity. Naturally, because of this, ad revenues are lost, leaving web publishers without recourse.

A couple weeks ago, The Pirate Bay began using an in-browser Monero cryptocurrency (similar to Bitcoin, but with a focus on anonymity) miner which uses JavaScript running in the background, unbeknownst to the user. Many users said they prefer mining in the background rather than viewing ads which can often lead to websites containing viruses, malware and even ransomware.

This past weekend, Showtime websites were found to be running a similar script, as pointed out by users on Twitter. The sites included showtime.com and showtimeanytime.com

Is this a sign of things to come?

A new WordPress plugin, WP Monero Miner using Coin Hive (which performs the aforementioned in-browser crypto mining) was released just last week and now boasts over 200 active installs on WordPress sites.

According to the plugin author:

In version 1.0.0 you need to add the widget “Monero Miner using Coin Hive” to your sidebar. This puts a control panel on your site where each visitor can decide to donate his computing power to you. As of version 1.1 the plugin features a “silent” option which works without the widget.

Are you thinking about getting in on the action and mining Monero without setting up complex crypto mining rigs? Okay sure, but you’ll need some traffic. A lot of traffic.

There is no easier way to get droves of web traffic more quickly than with free porn content. But this comes with a price.

Compared to mainstream advertising, adult websites command only a fraction of the CPM ad rates to those of their mainstream counterparts. The proliferation of free porn has further increased this problem. Perhaps crowdsourced crypto mining powered by porn viewers can soften the blow felt by adult sites.

How much traffic can a free porn site generate? Pornhub, the most popular adult website, receives 75 million visitors per day with the average “session” lasting over 10 minutes.

So how can you go about getting traffic cheaply and quickly? Well, look no further. The Tube Ace for WordPress plugin allows you to import millions of porn videos from Pornhub, RedTube, Tube8, YouPorn and many others to your very own porn site(s) which run on auto-pilot. The videos are embedded just like YouTube videos, therefore you don’t have to worry about an expensive web hosting bill.

Sure, it may not be so easy to create a site that attracts millions of daily users like Pornhub right away. Luckily, you have something on your side. The power of scale. Tube Ace has multiple site licenses available at great discount, allowing you to create dozens of porn video websites, quickly and affordably.

According to the Coinhive website:

Implementing a reward system for your site or game where users have to keep mining for longer durations is far more feasible. With just 10–20 active miners on your site, you can expect a monthly revenue of about 0.3 XMR (~$29).

If you run a streaming video site, a community site, an online game or anything else where you can give your users an incentive to run the miner for longer durations, then by all means: try it.

Let’s run some quick math. If each site of yours makes an average of only $300 per month, then having 10 websites will make you $3000 per month.

You may be wondering how difficult it is to get traffic to your new adult sites. I can tell you that getting porn traffic from Google and other search engines is quite easy, even without doing any SEO, link building, paid advertising or marketing. In the past, I have created new sites using WordPress and Tube Ace, imported 50,000 videos in a few days and received 10,000 daily users from search engines alone, without any advertising or marketing.

Throughout history, pornography has aided mass adoption of many new technologies.

Porn standardized Super 8 film since it was cheap and easy to use since way back in the 1950s, declared VHS the winner versus Sony’s Betamax in the 1970s, created the need for e-commerce billing systems, pushed internet video streaming to what it is today. Many predict that Virtual Reality sales will see a huge boost mainly due to porn content available on VR devices. Why should cryptocurrencies be any different?

The ways in which cryptocurrencies will change our lives and disrupt industries remains to be seen, but we can be certain they shall occur.
