Leah Callon-Butler of Intimate on Crypto Clothesline – PART 1/2
The interview with Leah Callon-Butler from intimate.io Part 1, shed some much needed light on the condition of the adult industry with respect to payments, reputation and safety.
“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.”
