Porn star Stormy Daniels is adding cryptocurrency to her official website to encourage users to consume content.

The adult movie actress, who became famous for her claim to have had an affair with U.S. President Donald Trump in 2006 and a resulting legal battle, has partnered with Vice Industry Token (VIT) for the move, according to an announcement released Friday.

VIT, which was created for use cases within the adult industry, is being adopted by StormyDaniels.com to reward site visitors for watching videos. Earned tokens can then be used to buy premium content on the site or to purchase services or subscriptions at other sites supporting the token.

“Even Stormy Daniels understands the value of cryptocurrency,” said Stuart Duncan, chief executive officer of Vice Industry Token, Inc. “We are thrilled that she chose our blockchain technology to implement on her site.”

Darkreach Communications, the firm managing Daniels’ site, will also be rolling out VIT incentives across its other 20-plus other adult websites, according to the announcement.

Calling the move to add cryptocurrency to the sites a “no brainer,” Darkreach president Rob Murray said:

“With VIT, everyone is going to make money – from the users on my sites, to myself and the performers. The way the VIT blockchain works, we all get a piece of the token, and the guaranteed genuine data is the icing in the cake.”

The news comes as the case for cryptocurrency grows increasingly popular in the adult industry – a space in which anonymity of users is much in demand.

Just last month, adult entertainment website Pornhub announced that would accept the verge cryptocurrency for payments, citing the cryptocurrency’s user base and requests on its forums that it should accept the token.

Pornhub VP Corey Price said at the time: “We’re extremely excited to offer our fans the ability to use crypto and think Verge, with its focus on anonymity, is the best option – whether for privacy, convenience or both.”
