the war on sex continues: anonymous sources leak OnlyFans plans to move away from adult content

 

The world’s biggest and most famous online platform for adult content is reportedly following through with its censorship strategy as a means to attract new investment.

 

OnlyFans initially launched as a subscription-based platform for exclusive content and quickly became strongly associated with adult content. At the time, OnlyFans did not complain about the exponential growth of its user base thanks to sex workers moving their businesses and their millions of fans onto their platform.

The porn industry has always been at the forefront of technological advancement and has often functioned as a catalyser for new platforms to gain followers and users. OnlyFans is not an exception, which is why the company’s new direction comes as even more of a disappointment.

 

 

OnlyFans has more than 120 million users, being one of the few lucky businesses that benefitted massively from the pandemic.

 

Looking at OnlyFans’ social media marketing, it’s clear the company is already trying to showcase different kinds of content creators like fitness instructors, beauty experts, wellness experts and mainstream celebrities.

 

Now, more than ever before, we need to invest in alternative ecosystems for independent adult content creators.

 

When OnlyFans bans adult content, we need to be ready to support the adult creators that will be left without an income once again. Now, more than ever before, we need to invest in alternative ecosystems for independent adult content creators.

 

Adult blockchain start-ups offer solutions

The exponential growth of blockchain in the last few years has made the porn industry jump in to explore the benefits of the technology which could soon turn into the last resort for adult entertainers and artists.

 

Although the adult entertainment industry is yet to realize the full potential and benefits of crypto projects, these projects will intimately transform the industry for the better.

 

Blockchains represent a viable alternative to the discrimination and inefficiencies.

 

Public blockchains are globally distributed systems of record that provide permissionless access to anyone with an internet connection. Anyone, regardless of their profession, can use a public blockchain to store their funds and transact without fear of having their accounts shut down.

 

Even more, blockchain technology helps pre-existing markets with underserved working communities, much like that of the erotic arts market and its content creators, realise new value in more equitable ways.

 

Blockchains represent a viable alternative to the discrimination and inefficiencies.

 

For example, video or photographic content can be tokenized as a non-fungible asset (i.e., a non-fungible token, NFT) and subsequently digitally traced to ensure that its creators are adequately compensated for (1) the piece’s initial sale, (2) the piece’s online traction (views, shares, etc.) and (3) a percentage commission from resale transactions involving the piece.

 

Consumers can also become investors of their favorite erotic art content producers, playing a more active role in that producer’s growth by purchasing digital ownership of their content that might become (or may already be) particularly popular in the online market.

 

As we watch the global rise of censorship continue, we keep pushing for alternative solutions through blockchain, because this is far from the end of this battle.
