Flirt4Free, the venerable high-end cam site by VS Media, has provided support for Cryptocurrency for some time now, you can buy packages of credits using Bitcoins and similar coins. Like most cam sites accepting crypto, they do this via a gateway company that handles the back end of the payments. Previously they used CoinGate, a popular gateway also used by LiveJasmin and Stripchat as well as many smaller companies both adult and non-adult.

Starting last week the pay-via-crypto option at F4F takes you to SpankPay, a new and smaller crypto payment gateway that is specifically focused on providing services to the adult entertainment industry.

While CoinGate has been operating since 2014 it only gained major growth in the last couple of years as Crypto started to become more mainstream, in 2018 they added Litecoin and Ethereum and have continued to add more and more coin choices.

SpankPay by comparison is very new, having only started to operate in the summer of 2019, though their parent company SpankChain goes back to at least 2017 when they were operating an adult-specific blockchain network with their own tokens but using Ethereum technology.

How does this change buying tokens using crypto at Flirt4free?

The options available for using different cryptocoin types are now reduced compared to the previous system. Under coingate the main options offered were Bitcoin, XRP, Ethereum and LItecoin but there was also a “More currencies” button that lead to a huge list of choices. Bitcoint and LItecoin also had Lightning Network as an option for faster payments.

Now under SpankPay the choices offered are more limited.

Flirt4free cryptocurrency options. Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and USDC
SpankPay offers ETH, BTC, LTC and USDC for payment to VS Media, Inc for Flirt4Free credits.

With only ETH, BTC, LTC and USDC as choices the options are more limited. And no Lightning Network option. The only additional choice is to buy using a SpankPay balance.

Is this a significant reduction? Probably not given that Bitcoin/BTC is by far the most likely to be used currency, with Ethereum a second choice, after that it starts to get very obscure and niche. In addition anybody who uses mostly one of the more obscure coins is probably enough of a Crypto-enthusiast that they’ll have wallets of the more common coins as well.

Flirt4free joins Justfor.Fans, SkyPrivates, and SextPanther as major adult sites that accept SpankPay, and a longer list of cam sites that accept Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.
