Token credit

This is the currency used on cam platforms. Viewers do not pay in dollars, they use virtual currency (which does not represent the same amount at the purchase for the viewer as it does the payout for the model). The platform takes a percentage, usually a margin of 50% for operating costs. The price of tokens will decrease with each purchase. 

This currency can be spent in different ways by the viewer:

  • To tip the model during a public show
  • To have a private show (counted by the minute)
  • Or to buy additional content (videos …) or join the model fanclub
