Launched in 2014, the aim of Titcoin is to be a cryptocurrency for the adult entertainment industry.

Cryptocurrency and the adult entertainment industry
Several cryptocurrencies – such as Titcoin, Sexcoin, Wankcoin, and Porncoin, have been created specifically for the adult entertainment industry. At the same time, quite a few websites and content within this industry already accept more widely known cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, and recipients are likely to find these “mainstream” cryptocurrencies significantly more easy to use than “adult coins” since more vendors outside their own industry accept them as payment. After all, it is convenient to be able to spend a currency without having to exchange it for another currency first. This is believed to be one of the main reasons as to why most of the “adult coin” projects are still struggling.
