Porn Site Hump The Bundle got 25% in Bitcoin Transactions

Hump the Bundle is a porn site with a charitable twist, taking its name as a mimicry from Humble Bundle. Run by Humpy Leftnut, they have been in existence for nearly three months and have already raised over $15,000 for charity.

The day after our /r/bitcoin thread, bundle #2 was at 25.91% of total transactions in crypto, and 21.02% of all sales in USD! ~ Humpy.

A large part of their sales comes from Cryptocurrency, for the benefit of voyeurs they kindly posted their recent intake here.

Humpy Leftnut told CCN:

I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole life, and usually these kinds of ideas just “come to me” in a split second. One thought leads to the next, and then you have a fleeting moment of clarity where it all makes sense. I think I bought a Humble Bundle and thought, why isn’t there a porn version of this? And then I thought about what it might be called, and Hump the Bundle came to mind. As soon as I thought of that, I knew I had to get this project done!

Hump the Bundle offers a selection of artistic videos and photos. From as little as $1 for a small amount of content containing videos and photo sets to as high as you wish via their custom amount.

With $1 you receive six random video scenes, and 1194 photos. $17 will unlock all their current video content and all the available photos. One of the interesting thing that brings Hump the Bundle to our attention is their user defined payment system.

No matter how much money you put towards your purchase, you can choose how the money will be shared amongst the sites that provide the videos and images, charity, or towards Hump the Bundle.

You can even donate 100% of your purchase towards charity if you are feeling that way inclined.

The payment options allow card, PayPal, Dwolla, bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin. Once you have made a purchase you will receive an email with a specific link and your items will be unlocked for you. You might wish to create a discretionary email account for these purposes.

They also offer a membership access that becomes available once you’ve purchased a package, from as little as $1. The membership access gives you a discount on all items for sale in their bundles.

Each bundle has different charities. Our first bundle had 3 – Able Gamers, The Foundation for Sex Positive Culture, and Angel’s Giving Tree. Our second bundle is running right now with Able Gamers, and a “Charity of our Choice”, which is a pool of money we’ll be giving away to charities of our choosing. This way we can support more things, and donate to people who might take our money, but would shy away from a full on public partnership with a porn site. ~ Humpy.

Mr Humpy reported that they had previously had some difficulties in finding charities that will accept their donations, notably, not because of the Cryptocurrency element, but because of the porn affiliation.

Is it a sign of changing times when businesses state that their refusal is because of the pornography affiliation and not because of the digital currency?
