There are things that end up being headlines, even though they may not seem very significant at first glance. One of the old-age expressions that is often used to express how good something is ‘better than sex’. This expression would probably be used by many Bitcoin holders if the leading crypto was to see a massive bull run and finally achieve the goal of mass adoption. Even though it might come off as a bit strange, it seems that an increasingly bigger part of the world is jumping on this bandwagon. But, the question is, how can this conclusion be drawn?
Reddit has proven this in the form of numbers; a Bitcoin subreddit has more followers, 1,707,705 to be exact than it has on r/sex, which is around 1.697 million. A Reddit user by the name of u/farmingOnYieldApp, revealed this data as he also subscribes to r/Bitcoin. Reddit is undoubtedly one of the strangest places on the internet because it boasts all kinds of people that you are unlikely to find elsewhere. It has more than 440 million users globally and from its very early days, Bitcoin users, followers or supporters have flocked to this website in huge numbers.
Consequently, it made r/Bitcoin to be quite popular since 2017, while the growth experienced by r/sex has remained quite flaccid over the years. Ever since the Reddit user highlighted that Bitcoin appears to be more popular than porn, there seems to be a surge in subscribers for r/Bitcoin. This could also be due to the announcement by PayPal about its plan of introducing crypto payment services from next year onwards, which would undoubtedly drum up a lot of positive sentiment for cryptocurrency. Again, it seems strange to be making news out of something so weird.
However, the crux of the matter is that as a Bitcoin subreddit actually has more followers than a go-to porn one, it highlights that there is already a lot of positive sentiment surrounding Bitcoin. It indicates that people have trust in Bitcoin, even more than they want porn. Considering the fact that Reddit is often regarded as a website that’s on the raunchy side, support for Bitcoin indicates that it has made great strides when it comes to creating positive sentiment. Nevertheless, users shouldn’t forget that despite its popularity, Bitcoin doesn’t come under the category of a ‘mainstream’ subreddit.
It comes off as small fish when compared to some big subreddits like r/Sports or r/Gaming. As a matter of fact, even a subreddit named r/MildlyInteresting, which as it indicates, is a center for things that are mildly interesting have a subscriber count of around 18.2 million or more. The good news is that you don’t have to choose between sex and bitcoin. People who are keen on both can find Pornhub a good option because this popular pornography platform has enabled its users to buy its premium services and pay for them via conventional means or even use Bitcoin for making their payments.
