Nothing shady about it!

It all started with
Grey Bank

Grey Bank, is a payment processor and financial institution catering to the very specific needs of people working in the 409B USD adult market ashistory proofs that the demand for such an institution is given and some change is urgently needed. The latest such proof is OnlyFans turning against the very users which made them big. So that's why we are here. We are here to change the game by being just one thing: a banking institution for sex workers and adult industry players. A banking institution which keeps things clean, safe and reliable.
This said, to ensure the highest ethical standards and compliance at all times Grey Bank uses a unique and proprietary transaction and account monitoring and validation system which balances privacy needs and seamless interactions with the highest worker safety standards and strict law enforcement. We literally care about the well-being of people in the industry and effective ways to fight crime rather than just pushing it into an even darker corner.
With regards to the latter we are cooperating very closely with some of the most well-known industry figures, scientists (even Harvard Law School is on our side here), law enforcement officers, local authorities and human rights organizations such as Amnesty International.
Hence, we will change the adult entertainment and sexual wellness industry for the better by taking care of everyone involved.
As a result we also address another key issue: The fact that many sex works have fallen through the entire social security net during the pandemic.
Beyond all that, Grey Bank also operates the HCX (Hot Crowd Exchange) which is a crowd funding platform and stock exchange where sex workers can invest directly into the very products, infrastructure and solutions they need to succeed in the industry.
Grey Bank is headquartered in Amsterdam (NL) with additional offices in Hamburg (DE), Paris (FR), Bangkok (TH), Geylang (SG), Tokyo (JP), and Las Vegas (US).
