don't blame patreon too much tho
it's extremely likely bankers and card companies pressuring paypal and stripe pressuring patreon as it usually happens
without credit cards and paypal patreon basically dies instantly
don't underestimate credit card companies, they have a perfect monopoly and will ask anyone to ban anything or fuck off with bitcoins
@CobaltVelvet Patreon could add bitcoin support if they cared~
Patreon is big now, and if they take $300+ per month from me they could put that money to use on not screwing over adult content producers
@CobaltVelvet @gargron so yeah, I dunno. it doesn't feel like bitcoin is really a viable option either—there would probably be a million bureaucratic hoops to jump through, even larger fees, and stuff like volatility is always a problem. Not that they shouldn't do it—but it's definitely not a turn-key solution.
- you can't make recurring payments with bitcoins
- getting coins is usually hard, getting coins quickly near impossible
pretty sure patreon mostly works on quickly made and forgotten recurring payments :p
