Virgin Galactic to accept Bitcoin for space flights

Virgin Galactic to accept Bitcoin for space flights Technology theguardian com


The virtual currency Bitcoin can be used to purchase pizza and to make apartment rentals – and now it can be used to buy tickets to space. Virgin Galactic, the space-flight branch of Richard Branson’s empire, announced on Friday that it will accept payments made by Bitcoin.

“All of our future astronauts are pioneers in their own right, and this is one more way to be forward-thinking,” Branson said, in a blogpost for the company. He said a female flight attendant from Hawaii purchased a Virgin Galactic ticket using bitcoin on Friday.

I wonder how it works? What if I was late for the meeting? Do I need to pay 50% more?

Haha, yes, so you better order early!
