LOS ANGELES — MetArt's plan to offer bitcoin as a method of alternative payment appears to be a natural one for the adult website network.

One reason: Bitcoin payment gateways give the green light for softcore, or non-sexually explicit, material but write off hardcore content in their terms and conditions.

Jill Taylor, MetArt spokeswoman, says thatMetArt is the first adult network to offer bitcoin as a method of payment. Two weeks ago, BlueBlood.com said it was now accepting the cryptocurrency as payment for memberships.

"Providing various payment options to consumers is something all ecommerce driven businesses strive to do," Taylor said. "Offering bitcoin as a payment choice allows our customers more ability to choose the payment form that suits them best."

MetArt, which is offering a 50 percent discount for subscribers paying in bitcoin, said the payment format isn't just available for consumers — affiliates also can use it.

"We are able to accept bitcoin payments and track and pay affiliates for these sales," Taylor said. "It opens up a new world of consumers for our affiliates and partners to tap into and allows our customers an additional payment option that many feel more comfortable utilizing than their debit or credit cards."

MetArt affiliates and partners can contact Taylor for additional information here.
