Top up your tokens with Bitcoin

Nerd enough to pay Chaturbate with Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is around for quite some years now.  (It is introduced in 2009)  At first, people are skeptical about it and worried that it will be used in illegal activities but now it’s getting more attention and acceptance.  What is Bitcoin?  Read more about it here.

For example, you can now buy webcam chat tokens with Bitcoin.  Chaturbate is probably the first one in the web-cam industry to accept Bitcoin for payments.  That’s cool!  I wish I had participated in mining bitcoins years ago.  So nerdy!  Lols.  I’ve a friend just boasted to me that he has finally mined enough Bitcoin to buy himself a coffee!  haha.  It will take him much longer to mine enough to buy tokens from Chaturbate for a private chat though.   It will be faster to get some from the Exchange.  See bitcoin.org to find out how to acquire more.

When I wrote this post in 2014, 100 tokens on Chatubate costs 0.0159 BTC and that’s the only cryptocurrency choice. (see snapshot in 2014 below).

How long does it take for the tokens to arrive in my account using crypto?

Tokens should arrive shortly after purchase confirmation

According to Chaturbate’s FAQ, tokens will be deposited to your account shortly after the purchase confirmation, and everyone’s definition of “shortly” is different.

The purchase confirmation could be processed instantly programmatically and that should take only a few seconds. We all hope that’s the case consider CB is pretty advanced technology-wise.

As always, if it takes too long and the tokens still haven’t arrived, you should contact the support.

    Sadly they seem to have stopped this experiment. I presume it was too much trouble and not that many people will use it. Do you have bitcoins already or would you buy them just for this?

    As I was checking out crypto as a payout for cam models, I noticed that Chaturbate has cryptocurrency as a way to buy more tokens. In fact, there are more crypto choices than before. It used to be only Bitcoin but now there are more options.

    Do let me know if this works for you. 😘

    how much time will it take for the tokens to reflect in my account after I make the payment through Crypto

    CB only claims that tokens should arrive shortly after they have confirmed the purchase. They haven’t specified how long will it take.

    We are hoping that it’s done automatically like buying via credit cards and doesn’t need human handling. If that is the case then it should arrive almost instantly.

    Maybe you should do a test purchase with crypto when your token balance is still positive, then you don’t mind if it takes a few hours to arrive. Do let me know how long it takes you please. I am sure you are not the only one who has this question in mind. 😉
