Lovense, the company that wanted you to join a 24-hour Twitter orgy, or let a stranger control your toy, has announced that it’s now supporting (select) cryptocurrencies as payment for items sold through its online store.
The currently supported cryptocurrencies are Bitcoin (BTC), Etherium (ETH) and
Tether USD (Omni layer), and those coins can be used to pay for any of the toys or accessories in the Lovense shop in any country where Lovense delivers. Rather than build out its own crypto payments gateway, the company is using the CoinPayments service.
The move is designed to make Lovense’s products that touch more appealing to anyone that’s got cryptocurrency burning a hole in their virtual wallets, as well as making the process a whole lot more private and keeping payment information off card statements.
Lovense has been on a real tear in the past six months, having already launched the Gush, Hyphy, Calor and its first ‘sex furniture’ machine. The company also introduced a number of new features to its mobile app in this same time-frame, including the introduction of a Speed Mode.
This determined focus on new features and new devices, all of which have interactive sync capabilities (with other toys, VR and interactive content), puts Lovense in more direct competition with Amsterdam-based Kiiroo’s most recent toys, such as the Kiiroo Keon and Pulse.
