Corey Silverstein Reveals Special Guests for New 'Legal Impact' Webinar

LOS ANGELES — Adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein will host the next live, online edition of his "Legal Impact" series, titled "Crypto & NFTs in Adult: Wave of the Future?" this Thursday at 2 p.m. PDT with special guests Marie Bossette, owner of Marie Bossette Entertainment, and Cathy Beardsley, president and CEO of Segpay.

The session, sponsored by Payze, will be moderated by Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals.

"Cryptocurrencies and NFTs have exploded in the adult entertainment industry; however, has their acceptance and growth in the space stalled? Now is the time to have a serious discussion about consumer sentiment, content creators’ perspectives, legalities, regulation and conventional processing," a rep said. "During this special live broadcast event, we will hear pro and con positions from leading players in the space."

Beardsley noted that the top question posed by Segpay merchants is about when the company will add crypto.

"I’m looking forward to sharing how Segpay is approaching the crypto space, our plans for implementation and all the 'gotchas' we have had to pay attention to along the way," she said.

Bossette shared that she got into crypto/NFT/blockchain for "many reasons."

"Mainly it was to be able to provide more of a one-on-one experience with my fans, old and new," she said. "Another major reason for my involvement is to try and be an example to the upcoming stars and tell them they don't need someone or some company to take a huge percentage of their earnings. We have the power, and it's time to use it."

Silverstein noted, "There has always been a tremendous need and desire in our industry for alternatives to customary payment processing. Cryptocurrencies and NFTs are still in their infancy and their uses are really just starting to get tapped into.

“Nobody knows more about payment processing than Cathy, and Marie has successfully launched her own NFT product and blasted off as one of the top artist-entrepreneurs in our industry,” Silverstein continued. “I cannot wait for this special presentation.”
