Introducing Titcoin – the first digital currency aimed at the porn industry.

Many cryptocurrencies have come and gone since Bitcoin’s boom in popularity, but none have been aimed at a specific industry in the same way Titcoin is.

Speaking to Vice, one of the currency’s founders, Edward Mansfield, explained that due to the popularity of Bitcoin, porn users may want to use another type of private currency: “In the future, you might have a Bitcoin account with your spouse. You may not want them to see you purchasing products or subscriptions on adult sites, so having an industry-specific coin has certain advantages for consumers.”

Rather confusingly, a video explaining Titcoin has been uploaded to YouTube, which implies that it’s a scheme that lets women pay for goods by flashing their own goods at shop assistants. It turns out this was actually an entry for a contest to become Pornhub’s creative director, and Titcoin is in fact a normal cryptocurrency that works just like the others.

Once all have been mined, there will be a total of 69 million Titcoins in circulation (of course), but while the likes of Dogecoin and Litecoin have managed to carve out their own section of the market – which currently has over 275 trading cryptocurrencies – only time will tell if this one goes tits up like many others have before it.

Other digital currencies that have failed to truly take off include Nyancoin and Flappycoin.

While these two might be struggling, they are still around. Meanwhile, Kanye West made sure that Coinye well and truly died after he got his lawyers on the case…
