What's the easiest way to get bitcoin to make a deposit on ignition?

Live poker player here. Wanted to sign up on ignition to keep my omaha skills sharp from home when I don't have enough time to go to the poker room.
Anyone who has purchased bitcoin and used it to deposit on Ignition care to help a fellow out?

Answering often flawed questions once and for all against bitcoin

Since the price has started rising again, the usual arguments have come back. This is the 3rd or 4th time the price is taking a surge so lets get over all the flawed arguments once and for all.
1) Bitcoin has no intrinsic value
Nothing has intrinsic value. Value is a matter of association. Gold has value because of its properties, just like that, bitcoin has value because of its properties.
2) Bitcoin is slow and expensive
Bitcoin is opensource protocol and is always improving. Transaction fees are not very high these days but thats a price you pay for censorship resistant transactions compared to traditional banking like paypal. But don't worry, bitcoin's 2nd layer, Lightning Network is getting popular with practically 0 fees and instant transactions. Speaking from experience, Lightning Network actually works. Its not as easy to use but so wasn't the internet when it was new.
3) Its used by criminals
This is exactly what people used to say about the internet. The internet turn out pretty used because its open. Bitcoin is an open platform to develop on. Sure, people use technology for bad, that doesn't make the technology bad. Instead of limiting what people can do, we should be focusing on creating better people. Infact, one of the number one usecase of bitcoin is charity and tipping (see pineaple fund and people on this subreddit).
4) Its trying solve a problem that doesn't exist
Satoshi Nakamoto in his first release of bitcoin talked about the trust that traditional banking breaches. Financial colapses happen everywhere and people loose everything because someone at the banks messed up. Excess inflation, like in Venezuela and Argentina, make people loose everything they have and often commit suicide while people at the top get away. Sure, just like climate change, it doesn't seem real until it actually affects you.
But bitcoin is so much more. It has ignited so much in multiple sciences and economics. Bitcoin is no more what it was in 2009 and with the advances in layer 2 solutions like Lightning Network, which is like the HTTP of money, its like saying "the technology to stream stupid cat videos on demand will never be usefull".
With a download of an app and 2 button clicks, you become a part of a global economy. Bitcoin is worlds first global currency.
Its about choice. If you want to use your national currency, go ahead.
5) Bitcoin wastes a lot of energy
Bitcoin uses energy for proof of work to secure its network. The reason bitcoin is so valuable is because its so secure (ill get to speculation). This energy is used to establish mathematical truth. There are other alternatives to Proof of Work like Proof of Stake which uses a lot less energy. Layer 1 of Bitcoin uses Proof of Work as of now.
Also - solar mining?
6) There are other better cryptocurrecies than bitcoin
There is no other network as secure and robust as bitcoin.
7) Bitcoins price is very volatile
As of today, yes. But its been observed that since its beginning bitcoin's volatility is gradually decreasing. Its often said that each consecutive bull run is less volatile than before (there has been 2-3 bull runs).
8) Wasn't bitcoin dead?
bitcoin obituaries. Bitcoin will never die. Even if price falls to 0 (which it won't cause people value freedom), the network will never die. also this obituary song.
9) Bitcoin is a bubble
Bitcoins all time lows has always been orders higher than its prior all time highs.
Local bubbles exists. There are no global bubbles. Its only going up. (no guarentee, don't kill me if you lose you money. Understand before buying/earning)
10) Bitcoin is open souce code so it can be just copy pasted so it has no value
Bitcoins code can be replicated. Not the network. Its the network thats real.
Bitcoin solved the double spend problem in computer science.
11) Bitcoin is centralised
A lot of big miners are mining pools. Sometime in 2013 (not sure) poeple realised one mining pool was about to cross 50% of hash power which made a lot of people to opt-out of that mining pool and it reduced its hash power a lot. I should also tell you that people often overestimate the dangers of centralisation. A centralised miner can only change the next block. Not the entire blockchain. Though bitcoin has never been successfully attacked with 51% attack.
So no, its not centralised, but not 100% idealy decentralised either. Practically, its decentralised.
12) Bitcoin mining is making all my gaming GPUs expensive and I'm sad >:(
No one uses GPUs for bitcoin mining (as of now), GPUs are for other cryptocurrencies. Though I should tell you computation is going to be very valuable. Mostly because of AI, big data, crypto and gaming. Which means greater demand. That doesn't mean better cheaper GPUs won't come.
13) 5000$ per bitcoin is very expensive so how could people do transaction below 5000$
Bitcoin is divisible. The smallest transaction I've done is 0.01 satoshi which is 0.0000000001 bitcoin = 0.0000005278$ as of today.
All this not focusing about what bitcoin actually is. If you're here and are a noob. I hope you learn about bitcoin after this! <3

[Table] IamA porn site owner. AMA!

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)
Date: 2013-08-19
Link to submission (Has self-text)
Questions Answers
Hello. Interesting AMA. Do you make enough to live comfortably? Yes. I grossed just shy of $300,000 last year. I drive a Mercedes and live in a luxury apartment in an expensive area of the country.
Does your family know? Not really. My only concern is with legality and VISA/MC's "BRAM" violations, since they could blacklist me and prevent me from ever accepting credit cards again.
Can I have a free pass? ;-) My sister knows, but my mother doesn't. The rest of my family has passed away or never existed.
Hah. Would if I could, but my site sells clips individually. There are no subscriptions... yet. :)
What does your mother think you do? I went self employed a year ago, but I have another website (which doesn't do as well) that I can point people to. As long as they don't examine it too much they probably wouldn't notice the lack of activity.
Awesome. What is the site name? :-) Lemonparty. ;)
(note: I'm kidding, of course.)
You say what you grossed but what's your margin? And would you accept outside investment? Net profit margins on clips are between 20% and 30%. Tribute margins between 10% and 20%.
Can you elaborate on not having any ethical concerns? What measures do you have in place to make sure the performers in your videos have good working conditions, aren't being coerced or manipulated into performing, aren't victims of human trafficking, etc.? I have no measures in place to prevent those, really. It's more policing them after-the-fact.
The only thing really in place is the ability to report a video, which then flags it for the review of an admin. If the video looks like it could be illegal, we take it offline until the studio can provide proof the video is legal.
According to the DMCA, content platforms cannot be held liable for the content posted by the user to a reasonable extent.
What I meant is I don't have moral concerns about the content of my site. A lot of it is pretty revolting, but it's not my job to judge or deny anyone for their fetish, as long as its within the bounds of the law.
Dad? Grandpas.
I wonder if that site has any serious profit. Everyone knows it. I doubt it... accidental ad clicks, maybe. The thing about advertising is it works best when you sell it to people in your market. I would assume that not many people go, dicks-in-hand, to lemonparty. But if its one thing owning a site like mine has taught me, its to not make assumptions about what materials people look for while "firing the surgeon general".
So by my math you're making around $75k/yr. if you're grossing 300k--surely a comfortable life, but by no means the lap (or crotch, in this case) of luxury. That sounds about right. Maybe less. Sometimes I'll work web contracts to supplement my income. It also helps remind me why I much prefer working for myself. :)
How often do you get a completely inappropriate video that you have to reject? Not too often, but there's some pretty harsh stuff on the site. I really try to look at it objectively. Some of the stuff makes me cringe and is hard to watch. Dudes getting kicked in the balls, for example.
Edit: Willingly, I might add.
Yay, a foremen fan! NICE! I was wondering if anyone was gonna get that reference.
Do you ever visit other porn sites to get off? Or do you stick to your own? I never get hard on my own supply.
Pretty much, the content on my own site isn't for me. We have some very attractive women on the site, but there isn't much traditional porn on the platform.
What's one weird trick that will help me last longer and/or increase the size of my dick? From personal experience? More foreplay.
If you've ever been given blueballs and afterwards pulled out your wang, you'd be surprised at how much bigger it can get. Freaked myself out once after a heavy petting session that wasn't advancing.
How was that username not taken? No idea.
Why did you make this AMA anonymous when you could have used this as a marketing campaign? I'm not really looking to profit off of this. I've read a bunch of awesome AMAs and figured I could contribute and answer some peoples curiosity. When I tell people in person they always have a hundred questions for me.
How long have you been in the industry? Besides, I find it difficult to believe anyone could be into some of the things on my site. I doubt it would boost sales.
Do you still find porn appealing or is it all pretty run-of-the-mill now? About 3 years.
I'm not turned on by many of the videos on my own site, so it hasn't changed porn for me much at all. I stick to beeg and motherless, personally.
Where do you think the future of porn on the internet is headed? The same direction the rest of the web industry is heading. HTML5 / Javascript MVC frameworks. High scalability platforms. The only advantage is there's a serious shortage of talented developers in the adult industry, so those of us who do know these technologies have an upper hand.
all the sites like Redtube/youporn etc... all giving away porn for free has to make a big dent into your profits? We do find our studios' clips on some of these sites. Sometimes a DMCA notice works, sometimes not. However, since the bulk of my customers are into financial domination, they prefer to pay for the clips. We also make a good amount of money from "tributes", which are simply cash donations. Not sure of the legality of tributes, but they're an industry staple.
What is this "financial domination" stuff? Sounds real kinky! I searched for it on a competitors video site but couldn't find anything.. It is indeed a real thing. I've come to learn about some pretty crazy fetishes people have.
FinDom (financial domination) Fart porn / flatulence Hiccups Giantess (look this one up. you won't believe it.)
What is financial domination? "A real thing" isn't really an answer and doesn't really help. Pls describe in further detail. Financial domination is a fetish where men, who are usually in powerful corporate positions, want to give up control. They're usually in charge, but this lets them not be. Sometimes it's via video chat, sometimes its just a video they purchase, but every time it has to do with being called names, told they're not good enough or just worthless "pay piggies". The girls will demand the men give them money, and they do. Usually there's not even any nudity unless its the man getting naked. I've seen some crazy shit with FinDom. Guys with broomsticks up their asses and womens clothes on... whatever the girl wants to do to humiliate the guy.
Sometimes they let the girls control their computer remotely with access to go through their email, send themselves money, etc, while they just watch with their dick in their hand.
It's odd and I don't understand it, but again, I'm not here to judge. I'm here to make money.
One studio I know demanded a man buy her a brand new BMW M3 convertible, and he did. He gave her $10k in cash per month until it was paid off. That's an $80k car.
I wish I was a hot girl... They make pills for that.
That's really crazy, you're basically just giving money away to someone you don't know at all.. It is interesting, but it exists, so I don't question it too much.
I'm looking for porn including a walrus with a tooth brush and their trainer. Do you have anything? EDIT: Of course THIS has to be my highest rated comment... Will an elephant seal and a tourist work? Also, do you care if the tooth brush is motorized?
That depends does the elephant seal have control of the motorized tooth brush? Checking...
What is your technical background? Are you a programmer? Do you manage the tech of the website yourself or is it 'outsourced'? I've been programming full time for professional corporations and agencies for 15 years now. I do manage the tech myself, but I make heavy use of Amazon web services.
Is it legal to post that kind of content on AWS ? It's not not-legal.
Who moves more content than porn sites? AWS would be missing out on a large large profit if they didn't allow adult content.
I'm curious, how much did you make programming before you had this site? My last gig I made $135k. Before that, $120k.
How big was it? We'll just say he's not the king anymore. ;)
Does anyone ever actually click those share buttons? Share to... what? Facebook?
reddit, and google plus, etc. I wouldn't know. I don't have them on our site.
You mentioned good integration with Twitter earlier. That's for marketing? Like you have a twitter account for the site? I have a twitter account for the site, but the twitter integration I spoke of is a feature that lets studios connect their twitter account and have it auto-post a link when their video goes live.
Do you produce original content or do you buy content and resell it? Neither. We grant studios the access to upload their own clips and add their own meta data, set the price, etc. They get a majority % of the sale.
What's the average net profit of a typical clip, from a popular performer(s)? A couple of dollars. Most girls sell clips around $10, and of that they get to keep apx $6 - $7. Our net income for the clips are around 25%-40%. We give better rates to the better performing studios, to keep them interested and using our platform.
Me and my roommate have been toying around with the idea of starting a pron site, I have around 30k saved up, Would that be enough to start a redtube-ish website? Also whats the most expensive part of building a porn site? I.E. Licences , hosting, hardware, Hiring someone to build the website. Nice! Good luck with it. It's a challenging industry. Things that would take 20 minutes on a normal business can take days in the adult industry. (finding a payment processor, for example)
A redtube-style site would be quite a challenge, financially, I think. Policing it could also be pretty difficult.
The most expensive part, for me since I did all of my own design and programming, was getting VISA/MC approval for a high risk account. VISA has a $1000 annual fee and MC has a $500 annual fee, at least through my payment processor. Fees are also ass-rapingly high.
You can make use of Amazon Web Services to lower costs substantially.
How much would you guess it would cost to design and program a video hosting website? Also how hard was it in the beginning to get studios to sell their clips on your site? If I calculated it in hours spent on it myself, looking at around 3 months, so we'll say 500 hours. I charge $65/h if I ever take on freelance clients, so looking at about $32000 for someone at my rate. I'm expensive because of my extensive experience, so you can probably get it done for less.
751 studios 19,138 videos Apx 5000 visits per day - A good number of which are sent directly from the studios to purchase on the site or send a tribute.
Can you give us a rough description of your architecture? What OS/Web servelanguage do you use... Do you use a CDN to serve up the videos or do you host them yourself? And what bits of AWS do you use? How many EC2 instances? The site itself runs on a single server, a VM actually. It runs PHP with CodeIgniter for the framework and MySQL as the database. I make extensive use of CodeIgniter's caching abilities. Once the video is safely on S3, the studios can complete the meta data, pricing, and choose when the video goes live. All the video previews and gifs are uploaded to S3 and served through AWS Cloudfront CDN.
Thanks for your AMA, I'm finding this very interesting. I'm a developer (.net) who is looking for a niche where I can start up my own business... I know I'm not going to get rich working for a someone else... Congrats to you for doing this, and being very successful! Thanks! I'm the same way. I couldn't see myself becoming wealthy as an employee, even though my last paying job as a developer was $135k salaried. I have an FTP server setup where the usernames and passwords are powered by MySQL. Each studio gets their own FTP login. I have a cronjob that will run every few minutes and pick up files that are finished uploading and send them to Amazon S3 after gathering some basic meta information.
Thanks for the replys, Its giving me a valuable insight. One more question, How many people do you have employed? And what are their roles? I have myself, a consultant (she gets a profit split), and an assistant. Other than that, everything is fully automated. I didn't want to have to spend all my time on the site, so everything but customer support is automated -- all the accounting is done through Xero's API and I even have a porn-specific accountant/CPA.
Of the 5000 visits per day, approx. how many actually purchase a clip? Are you able to track repeat purchases (do they have to make an account to buy)? Or do you track another way? A dozen orders, maybe 30 on a good day.
Thank you again for answering my questions. :) No problem. I'm an open book. Feel free to keep asking questions.
Wait, how does that add up? If the site is turning over $300+k, then it should be making $1000 of sales a day. If you are only selling 10-30 clips a day then they would need to cost $30-100 each. Unless there are other revenue streams (such as tributes) which I'm missing? Tributes are at least half of the business.
I'd say you're like an open book with a couple pages stuck shut. ;) slow clap
Double entendre.
That really doesn't add up. you said most of the girls sell their clips for $10, you get 25-40% of that and you sell 12-30 a day. Lets assume the average clips sell for $15 to be safe, and you get 35% of that - you get $5.25 per clip. If you sell 25 in a day, you earn $131. My math may be off -- It's hard to spitball an average price. Some days I don't even look at the numbers. Clips alone can sell between $200 - $600 a day. Tributes sometimes into the multiple thousands in a day.
Have you ever met some of the girls in the videos from the professional studios? If positive, have you done anythign whit said girl/s? I know a few of them personally, but have only met one of them -- the girl who convinced me to build the site. She sleeps in my bed when she's in town, but I don't make any moves. Not sure how I would react if she did.
It may be worth noting at this point that personally, I'm into good girls. Risque women or "bad girls" don't do it for me, generally speaking.
I kid. Relax. Nope. The entire site is completely automated. All I do is approve the invoices in our online accounting software and handle customer support, which takes maybe an hour a week. :)
I wanna make that much money to do nothing! Start a porn site. :)
For me, it made sense as a money generating asset requiring little effort beyond the initial build.
laughs Oh man, my kids would be so proud of me! Seriously though, good on ya for seizing an efficient opportunity when it came your way. I can't hate on that at all. Again, it goes back to money generating assets. Getting money for doing nothing is exactly what you should be aiming for if you want to make lots of money. I can't see myself becoming wealthy while working for someone else.
Again, it goes back to money generating assets. My 'plan' for this just came together recently. I work for myself in the web/internet marketing realm. Focusing on recurring income is very important to financial growth and stability. Even better, recurring income plus economies of scale = wealth. Agreed.
Wow. That last sentence is incredibly poignant. Sorry. :)
It's just the personal conclusion I reached while evaluating my life.
How does your website stand with data privacy? Do you you sell customer's data on to ad companies or do you only make money off of the porn movies? Although it's fairly common industry practice, I don't participate in it. It's odd, but I try to run my business as professionally as possible. No ads, no link exchanges, no share buttons, no privacy violations. Also, I treat my studios with respect as any normal business would to any partner of theirs. It's surprisingly easy to stand out in the porn business when you abide by those rules.
What types of porn will you not let on your site? Spanking, anything that says "forced" or "rape", even if its clearly labeled as theatrical. Obviously nothing illegal... and no "hypnosis". Those are restrictions VISA/MC places on me. I've considered taking bitcoin on the new platform, but now I'm going to wait and see how this senate hearing thing plays out.
What is hypnosis porn? You're getting horny. Verrry horny. Look into my swirly eyes. Give me your monies. Giiive me your moniiieees.
How did you get started in the biz? I've been building websites for fortune 500 companies for 15 years now. Several years ago I reconnected with a girl I knew from IRC who did "financial domination" clips and cam shows. A few years ago (3 or so) she began suggesting I build a clip site. After a few months of this, and running numbers on what potential profits could be, I decided to do it.
Who did you have to bang to get that job? I had to bang keys for 12 years to teach myself how to program. From there it's just about having enough fortitude to start a business, and even moreso with an adult business. There's a certain stigma involved. Most people know me as "the guy with the porn site".
Why are there "Like" buttons and share buttons on porn sites? I have no idea. Who would share the porn they're watching? Kind of a personal thing.
Do you ever get approached by angry moms or family members asking you to take down their loved ones from the site? Not yet.
Maybe a weird question, but do you have to do a lot in your day to day life or is it something on the background where you have a lot of time? I don't have to do much at all. The site runs itself. I answer between 1 and 3 customer support emails per day and approve payouts to the studios once a month.
Other than that, I spend my time on my other business ideas and websites. Or I'll just sleep all day... Whatever I want to do, really.
Thats the dream. And probably the only reason I run my site. :)
Ever thought of taking a second job? i mean with that less stuff to do you can add another job for more money. I could, but my freedom to build my own businesses means more to me than income. As long as I can pay my bills and have my freedom, then I'm good.
Not sure if you're still on, but you really inspire me. I'm shitty with computers, and I plan on majoring in computer sciences(moreso in networking) and just reading your replies gives me hope that someday I'll have enough experience to start my own business/build clientele. Thanks. I'm not a big porn fan or anything, it's just a way I found to make ends meet while I work on my real plan. :)
Have you noticed any issues with piracy? Occasionally. I've found most people who spend money on the site either don't want to share something they've paid for, or would have an incredibly difficult time doing so.
What I mean is, a good portion of our demographic are middle-eastern men proxying through misc servers all over the US. They'd have a rough time uploading clips to another site.
Interesting demographics. People living in the Middle East, or just from there? Living in the middle east. Places where this kind of content is more than banned.
Any idea if this is normal for other sites as well? From what I understand, it's common for clip sites, financial domination sites and religious fetish sites.
So you circumvent piracy by offering content to people who aren't likely to distribute it? Is that your business model or just a happy coincidence? I have to say I'm surprised a porn site could be profitable considering how much free stuff there is out there. Don't sites like YouPorn and RedTube bury you? Happy coincidence. They totally bury me in traffic. I've found a niche that works well, though.
Is it true all the talent is now moving from Cali due to the condom laws and going to Las Vegas? I haven't heard too much about it from inside the industry. We do have a good amount of studios in Las Vegas, Florida, and England.
England. How is the industry over here? Strong on the seller side. The buyer side is particularly weak.
What do you think about 3D porn and virtual reality porn? 3D Porn is interesting, as is VR. I'm more interested in network controlled adult toys. I think its the future.
Agree about the network controlled toys. Have there been any newer advancements in this area that you know of? Theres a few newer ones on the market... a his & hers USB powered vibrator set I recently discovered. It might have been on kickstarter. It wasn't related to my site, I just came across it online.
How many times have people in videos sued or tried to take any legal action against you? None.
My biggest competitor did threaten to sue me, though. And they've gone after my top studios, trying to get them to leave my site... slandering my business in the process.
Can you sue for defamation or slander? You can.
I don't need to lose in court, I just need to be lawyer-fee'd to death. :(
Since you've been doing this for only a couple of years and it has been so financially successful for you, have you considered branching out into different types of porn sites? Or is this "buy a clip" the best business model you have found? I wouldn't want to do other types. The buy content/sell subscriptions never really worked for me as a customer, and the redtube style sites don't work for me numbers-wise. I'm very anti-advertising, so I wouldn't want to rely on that as a source of revenue. My consultant has tried to get me to create a thumb-gallery style site, but I'm not fond of the idea.
We are working on a new platform, though, which will require customer accounts and lets them stream the videos they unlock through HTML5 video. We've also reorganized the new platform into fetish verticals so we can try to capitalize on that. Our current discovery process admittedly sucks. There's a lot of videos on our site that are in the dark.
Do you see free sites such as pornhub and redtube as a source of lost profit? I don't see them as a threat. Some of the studios do, though. I've been told my new platform shouldn't have the video previews I'm planning (20 seconds of footage), as guys "jack off to the previews". I think it's better for the customer, though.
What day see's the most traffic on your site? Historically, Tuesdays. No idea why. Sundays are the slowest, by far.
I have always wanted to put my skills as an interaction designer to good use, by simply creating such a site as yours, especially for mobile devices or wearables. Augmented r porn ftw. You wouldn't need an intro, per se, it just helps. You could take out advertising on popular sites in your micro-industry and get some studios coming in. You could also tweet the studios directly, as they watch their twitter pretty well (it's how a lot of them communicate with their "pay-piggies").
However getting the content has always been the biggest issue (even in the netherlands)... If you never have met this girl that initially gave you the idea to start this up, would you've managed? Or is it near impossible to get enough good content to get started, without good contacts and, lets say, about 30k in cash? I would not have built the site without my consultant. It took a considerable amount of nudging from her to get me to build the site.
I know which website is yours :P Other than the people uploading clips, how many employees do you have and what are their jobs? :)
Just myself and my consultant (she also runs a studio). I have another "employee" who is helping me on another endeavor with the same parent company, currently uncompensated, whom I referred to as my assistant in another answer similar to this. Don't tell her that, though. She's much more helpful than an assistant.
How does someone find a job (not even a career!) in this field? My talents are webdesign and html(5)/css3. But I also wouldn't mind filming / writing / even acting although I'm out of shape. I just like porn that much. That -- I have no idea. Sorry.
Tl;dr and question: In Britain certain extreme content is becoming potentially illegal and porn, especially of certain types, is being vilified by the government. 1) What personal rules do you observe in terms of content you allow? 2) Are there any censorship rules in America that do/could affect content you post of extreme porno, and how do you deal with them? 2) As far as I'm aware, there aren't many rules about it. I haven't been gifted with too many "extreme porn" studios, though, so that's been a blessing. It makes me quite a bit uncomfortable.
Wouldn't you make more money offering the clips for free and making money off ad revenue? Probably not. That would require massive traffic which is both expensive to attain and expensive to pay for the bandwidth. My customers come to the site looking to spend money, and they don't get any big video files until they've paid for them. Additionally, splitting revenue with the studios would be considerably more difficult.
How often do you fap? No more than the average reddit user.
So all the time? I may or may not be fapping right now.
How old are you? Do you see yourself doing this for the rest of your life? Generally it seems that being your own boss is your dream job, but what specifically would you most like to do as your primary source of income? Or does this not matter to you? I'm in my late 20s. I don't see myself doing this for the rest of my life, but this is a means to free up my time. My time is invaluable to me since I can spend it building businesses outside the adult arena.
It matters very much to me. I'm not a genius and I'm not a wonder child. I started below middle class. I've had to work 4x harder than a lot of the talented people in my industry. The important thing is that I understand this and I'm willing to put the work in.
"What I lack in talent, I make up for with raw tenacity." - Henry Rollins.
Is is awkward or embarrassing saying what you do to friends and family? What about in relationships? If I were making millions, I'd be a little less "embarrassed". It's not so much embarrassing, I just understand that in current society it's frowned upon. For example, if I were looking for a job, some companies may not hire me because of my site. Some girls wouldn't date me because of it. It really depends on the person I tell.
Are you considering retiring soon or do you really wanna see your site take off? I've gone back and forth on whether or not to finish the new platform, but its so cool from a technological standpoint. Plus, I'm sitting on 20,000 clips with full permission to sell -- how could I not make a better site and give it a real go?
Do you watch your own clips? For humor content, sometimes yes. Nothing like a gorgeous girl backing her ass up to the camera and ripping the LOUDEST, JUICIEST fart you can imagine. I have pulled stomach muscles laughing at some of the clips.
Other than that, the content doesn't really interest me.
What is your view on 'NoFap'? or furthermore, the emerging evidence that porn addiction is a widespread problem that is affecting thousands/millions of people? I wasn't aware of it. I don't really have an opinion? I think as with all things, moderation is key. A lot of people are addicted to alcohol, but nobody is shaming liquor stores. At the end of the day, nobody is responsible for you but yourself. Might be a Libertarian thing, though.
Working hard, or hardly working? :D. I see this, and I understand it.
Do you have a girlfriend or wife? What did they think of the idea? I don't. But quite a few girls know and don't really care.
What's the difference between a website like yours and websites like the nsfw version of youtube? My site sells clips. You buy a clip for a price, you download it and its yours to view over and over. We have a profit sharing split with the studios who produced the clip. We're essentially a video sales platform.
How does the whole licensing thing go? Just shoot an email to a porn studio and be like "hey can I use your videos on my website? You get 30% of the revenue (; (; (;" I've always wondered how this sort of stuff worked in the "entertainment" field. They have to sign up on my site. I send out 1099s to domestic studios at the end of the year.
How did you get started, what made you decide to run a porn site? I had a friend who urged me to make it (She runs a studio). After about a year of constantly asking, and the timing was right, we ran numbers and it looked doable.
Do you have a fav porn star? I don't really have any favorites. I prefer "good girls".
Hi, do you ever have any trouble getting developers and designers to work on an 'Adult' website? I've never tried.
Also, can you recommend an adult payment gateway provider? As for the payment gateway, I'd recommend Netbilling. They'll work with you to find a merchant account provider and a gateway partner (they don't sell direct).

TIPS:
Amazon Mechanical Turk [US]
This site is a bit different from your typical beer money site. This is a bit more professional. You work for "requesters" and they approve or reject your submitted content called "hits." Many people here think this great and it often gets them more money than other sites. They do require more personal info from you than the sites above for tax reasons (even though you likely won't have to worry about it) and not everyone gets approved to work here.
↪ Age minimum: 18
↪ Offers: Different tasks requesters want you to do for money
↪ Payout: Amazon Payments balance or bank account
↪ Referral Incentive: None
TIPS
• Don’t use mturk without having turkopticon installed. It’s a browser add-on that allows workers to post reviews about requesters and gives you a good idea of whether or not to attempt a HIT based on the requester’s reputation.
• Only do hits that pay at least 10¢/minute. Mturk grind forum and /hitsworthturkingfor are good places to check for worthy hits.
• It is better to return a hit (it will not negatively impact you) than submit if you are unsure whether the requester will approve it.
Sites to Avoid: Definitely DO NOT post these.
Paidverts shady owner, sketchy site. Keep doing debt swaps(cash to BAP). Do not post.
DigitalGeneration put a bitcoin miner and spyware in their software. Never paid out. Avoid at all costs. If you’ve downloaded it before, do a virus scan.
Neobux isn’t REALLY a scam, but they operate as a pyramid scheme. There’s money to be made online, but it’s definitely not there.
Locket used to be good, but not anymore - guess they realized that their platform won't be profitable enough, if at all. They did pay out all the users, but you won't be making money with this app any more.
MarketGlory does pay out, but the pay is absolutely ridiculous. The only way to make a decent amount of money is to have a lot of referrals, and referral whoring on this subreddit WILL result in a permanent ban.7
IPUServices stopped paying out altogether. No response to questions regarding payouts. Avoiding is recommended.
Cash2Refer Does not pay out and awards way too much for merely referring people. $5 per visit? Come on.
MindSumo Not actually a beermoney site, only spam in this sub.
G2A Scam/sells stolen keys
Generic news sites that pay you ridiculous amounts to read an article (two euros??): Common sense should take care of this, but in case it doesn’t, it’s always a scam. Site is usually hosted somewhere in Eastern Europe, and there is never a payout.
Free bitcoin sites/"faucets"(THIS INCLUDES QOINPRO): Not referring to those video-viewing/task sites (although they’re still paying fragments of a penny). I’m talking about sites that give you 0.000001BTC to fill a captcha (freebitco.in, dailybitcoins). Admittedly many beermoney sites pay low, but don’t even bother with these.
Also: Bitcoin mining is NO LONGER PROFITABLE. If you're really so keen on getting bitcoins, doing so through an exchange is your best option.

Bitcoin: A BIT of a problem

My name is Joe Average. I am the 80% of people who found out about bitcoin. I found out last week that an ATM for a new type of special currency is being released in my hometown, Vancouver BC Canada. Like many others, I'm still clueless about bitcoin, despite spending my halloween weekend researching it, trying to find out whether it's a trick or a treat (sorry I had to).
In this post, I'll list what I know about it, then list the thoughts, problems, and barriers that I, and probably 80% of the population, feel about bitcoin. These things are probably most relevant to those of you bitcoin enthusiast that have a vested interest in the success of the currency/commodity, because the general public represents a population that will influence the capacity that bitcoin can have in society.
Bitcoin has many advantages. Here are the advantages that I came across in forums and news articles: -free from government influence -zero bank fees -limited resource, naturally appreciating value -relatively anonymous -intangible, convenient to carry -irreversible transactions
And here are some problems, starting from the most relevant one which probably everyone thinks of right off the bat:
1-Bitcoin or cash? Why should I bother using bitcoin? Dozens of local merchants in my area are accepting bitcoin. Wow that's great! Now I can spend 2 hours acquiring bitcoin from a private, ungoverned, unregulated exchange (more on that later) and buy a medium belgium hot chocolate from waves (great drink by the way). Paying with card or cash? No ma'am, I'm paying with BITCOIN big teethy smile, eyebrows up and down several times Ok, bust out the ipad or whatever, spend 15 minutes waiting for the cashier to grab her ipad, unlock the screen, get a network connection at coffee shop network speeds, tap the bitpay app or w/e, load the app, scan my qr code, wait for the transaction to verify, blah blah blah, meanwhile, big ass line up forms behind me and I'm the big asshole who decided to pay with bitcoin instead of cash.
Okay, in all fairness, I'm probably being ignorant to some bitcoin app out there that cuts this whole process down from 15 minutes to just 5 minutes, the time it takes to verify transactions. But if I have to use an app, that probably costs money. So now my $4.50 dark belgium hot chocolate now costs $4.65 + 5 minutes of my life.
Hmm maybe I'll just 1) whip out some cash 2) whip out my visa card and pay it off right away so I don't incur interest fees 3) pay for it with debit, my bank doesn't charge me debit fees for using my card
2-Sending bitcoin So let's say what appeals to me is that bitcoin replaces Western Union, bank transfers, etcetc. I want to send $4,000 to Alice and Bob of ABC Co., payment for their work as hypothetical people in every accounting example I've ever read. For that amount, I'd have to pay >$100 in service fees from a money company. Or I could save myself >$100 by using bitcoin instead.
Okay great! Where do I start? Download a wallet. Done, nice. Next step, synchonize 208 weeks of ledger. Great.. oh, hang on. It's been 4 hours and I've downloaded 3 weeks. What the fuck?! How long does this take.. it doesn't even tell me how long it will take or how big the file is! computer left running overnight Awesome, just 2 more nights to go then I'll be fully syncrhonized. 2 days later hard-drive is maxed out? I needed a new one anyways. 4 days and a 500GB SSD later Now I have my wallet ready to use. Time to purchase some bitcoin!
So I purchase bitcoin, send it to Bob and Alice, and since they own ABC Co., a massive enterprise, they employ an IT guy, and he is the only guy in the company who will ever understand how to securely use bitcoin. He's behind 2 juniper firewalls (for redundancy), we VPN tunnel'd the payment code over with the pass, that way I know it went to him and nothing's been compromised. Because once the funds are sent out, it's gone, there is no insurance. Which brings me to my next point:
Bottom line: requires a lot of time to SAFELY and SECURELY send bitcoin, FEE-FREE. But that's okay because I have nothing better to do. If I had kids, errands, work, non-IT hobbies to do, $40-$100 might be worth the time it takes me to research the process of sending bitcoin out properly.
3-Bitcoin wallet services There's a whole list of companies emerging to take podium position in the race of the bitcoin wallet services world. Besides setting up a bitcoin exchange (which anyone can do in their basement), bitcoin wallets are the next biggest thing in bitcoin.
In the digital world, about 3 companies take podium position in a certain thing. Like Android/Apple/Blackberry for cell phones, Windows/Apple/Linux, Chrome/Firefox/IE, etc etc. Right now, for digital bitcoin wallets, everyone's competing to be one of those 3 major companies that everyone will use. Companies like coinbase.
These companies cost money. Coinbase has a pretty impressive talent pool. Let me introduce them to you:
Barry Kwok- Holy shit, this guy has a Masters in Engineering?! No seriously, this guy is a master of engineering. He built teams of 5 to 50 people at Google (fucking google man!). This guy is the first guy on the list, how much does he make? I'd have to guess $120k
Craig Hammell- This guy built OK Cupid. I know a guy who uses that shit to get laid, it really works, so OK cupid is probably a well-established company. Because of Craig's success with OK cupid, and the fact he looks that young, I'd say he probably doesn't make that much, just a modest $90k
Olaf Carlson-Wee- Olaf does rock-climbing, enough said. $95k
Fred Erhsam- Traded at Goldman Sachs. $150k
Charlie Lee- Invented Litecoin, worked on google chrome, google play, and youtube. $120k
Brian Armstrong- This guy has experience with Fraud Prevention. Don't know why they hired him, because as everyone's been saying, you can't fraud bitcoin. Since they don't need him, he's probably an intern.
Let's run some quick numbers: Total cost of salaries: $575,000/year Other expenses including dividends to investors: $3m/year
So this company has $3.6m a year to allocate to their consumer base of 329k of wallets, and 12k merchants. That is roughly $10.56/year per wallet or merchant. (realistically, the portion of cost between wallets and merchants would be not be split equally, and of course all these figures are pulled straight from thin air, however, this is reddit, not forbes).
That is a very low amount compared to using VISA which costs merchants $0.25/transaction+monthly service fee. As we can see, bitcoin is a great! Save some money.
But here's the problem: people fraud banks all the time. That costs money. Somebody puts $10k in their digital wallet, loses it, they're going to be pissed off. They'll start demanding it back from coinbase. The day coinbase pays 1 guy $10k compensation, the day they'll have to pay everyone that loses money like that, and that $3-mil figure I gave above will be much higher, and the fees everyone has to pay will go up. If coinbase doesn't compensate, then people will be reluctant to use bitcoin for anything other than small transactions.
This means bitcoin will not have the capacity to be adopted by regular people, like me. Either I lose big chunks of money at a time, when my digital wallet gets hacked, goes missing, frauded, etc, or I lose it in smaller chunks and frequency which is similar to a bank.
So digital wallet services are just like banks. Wait, I thought the bitcoin guys were saying banks were a bad thing?
4-Inflation vs Deflation I see a lot of bitcoin enthusiasts talking economics, which really angers me. You should read some of the things they say "inflation is bad, bitcoin actually deflates, so its good" "the government can't fuck with bitcoin, so its good" "bitcoin good, so it's good". If you're a bitcoin enthusiast and discussed bitcoin economics, you probably need to trade your internet credit for some college credits. Because seriously, that is some retarded shit. For example:
Inflation is bad, bitcoin deflates = good / The gov't can't fuck with bitcoin so it's good No. Inflation is good, yes I said it and you can quote me on that. Inflation allows job creation through lowering interest rates which encourages people and businesses to buy things. When stuff is bought, things happen. And jobs are required to make things happen. So when the government sees that "hey, our economy ain't doin too well, how bout we print some of ye ol' fashioned paper dolla bills" that's a strategic move to lower the unemployment rate and increase GDP.
The US is in shambles right now for reasons beyond inflation. The #1 reason why is labour costs too much in the US. Shaquila and Billy Bob don't want to work in a factory for $12/hr, they're too in love with hollywood and liberty, thinking they're entitled to a high paying comfortable job. Half of America thinks like that. But guess what, the Chinese don't, they're happy to pick up where Shaquila and Billy Bob left off. And because of the economies of scale thanks to their large population, that ignited over night, and now the US is left with a population that doesn't want to work. There's also a bunch of other reasons like going to war, etc, but that's debatable because there's a cost/benefit of going to war (own all the oil rigs out east to pay for things because you lazy fucks can't be bothered to make money with elbow grease).
The point is, mind fuck #1, inflation is a solution to a problem that's not related to money.
On the other side of the coin, deflation IS a bad thing.
Deflation, which bitcoin is designed to do, means that there will be fewer amounts of money to spend over time. That increases the price of things. That's good for people who are holding on to bitcoin. This encourages people to spend with bitcoin less, and save more. Mind fuck #2, saving money is bad, because it reduces GDP. It reduces the need for companies like coinbase to develop and create a product for spending bitcoin in the first place. So the more bitcoin deflates, the more its value goes up, the less people spend bitcoin on shit, the less merchants see a point in accepting bitcoin, the less merchants use bitcoin, the less people buy bitcoin, then bitcoins value goes down.
5-Limited supply of bitcoins This title should read Diminishing supply of bitcoins, but it would then be misinterpreted without an explanation. Bitcoins don't diminish, they are simply unaccounted for. Meaning, if you have bitcoins, and forget the password, it is gone forever. And in case you didn't know, people are human, making them prone to mistakes. Forgetting, etc. So, over time, enough people will lose bits and pieces of bitcoin here and there. That's going to add up over the long run. Units of measure will start going to miliBits, Microbits, ultra micro bits, ultra ultra micro bits. etc. Kind of like fiat currency, it can inflate to be infinitely large, and with bitcoin, infinitely smaller.
6-Exchanges and trading When Silk Road went down, bitcoin went up. First, naturally and by way of economics, fewer bitcoin = increased value. The Silk Road guy had $26-million USD worth of bitcoin, more than enough bitcoin to raise the market price. Followed by that, we have news, and hype, which drove higher. Then the fact prices are going up, makes a nice news article, which drives it up even more. When prices went up because of the news, incentive went up. Now the prices are so high, some people have made fortunes off of it. And that makes the news too, which drives it up again even higher.
That's a great incentive if you're a bitcoin investor. Hey, the winklevoss twins have 1% of bitcoin, all you miners go use your mining pools to break into the winklevoss account and delete the fuck out of their bitcoin wallets and backup, so you can raise the market value.
Just kidding. That's a lot of work. You know what's easier? This:
1) Start your own bitcoin exchange, no fees 100% free. 2) People will start trading on it. 3) ???? 4) Profit!
Actually step 3 isn't a mystery, you set the fucking price level to whatever you want it to be. And because it's 100% unregulated, unsanctioned, not tied to any commodities, no authority, no referee, no consortium, you can do whatever the fuck you want on it.
Without authority, believing that the prices on the bitcoin exchange is set naturally by way of price and demand is like believing in religion. You just have to believe.
Of course with public exchanges, there is some level of corruption involved, but that's why people get arrested and shit. Using bitcoin exchanges doesn't have that level of protection, and it never will. You think the governments own law enforcement is going to go after guys corrupting a private stock exchange, which trades a currency that negatively impacts their own fiat currency? Unless the government is somehow benefiting from bitcoin, which it won't by design, the police will simply have a good laugh at that.
In conclusion, there's so many flaws that I can see with bitcoin. But bitcoin enthusiasts will say otherwise. If I jumped on the bitcoin train 3 years ago, I'd probably do the same thing as you: make up some backwards economic reasoning it'll succeed, some backward political reason, etc.
So Dear Bitcoin, you just don't make enough sense to us, the general population, for us to adopt you. A great substitute for currency in the underground world, but you just don't fit with us here on the mainstream. And if you did fit, you'll end up being regulated just like currency, so what's the point? You're the same shit as my cash or cards. Fuck off. -Joe Average
