“Most payment gateways outright refuse to deal with businesses that service the adult sector. Payment gateways hide behind assertions of fraud, which is a risk, but one that can be mitigated with identity solutions. In reality, payment gateways, or the banks that service them, avoid the industry due to perceived, and real reputational risk. Excerpted from the Whitepaper The interview with Leah Callon-Butler from shed some much needed light on the condition of the adult industry with respect to payments, reputation and safety. Leah became heavily invested in blockchain after being involved with the renewable energy sector but soon learnt the adult industry was going to benefit dramatically from the implementation of blockchain technology. From renewable energy to dress to success and then to, one thing stood out, Leah has every intention making the world a better place for women and particularly those in the adult industry who are facing extreme risk and payment issues daily. The porn industry alone is worth $97 Billion but payments to these services are often blocked, prohibited and often impossible. Leah discusses openly how workers need to take additional, often insufficient, security measures prior to meeting a client due to the risks. Leah goes on to discuss that due to most payment systems like Visa, PayPal and Stripe refusing to serve providers, that they are then forced to use specialist payment gateways which pass down operational costs and fees to providers. It brings an empathic understanding of the adult industry and how discrimination is heavily impacting on their right to safety, payment systems and earn a living.
