As Bitcoin sets its sights at the $20,000 mark, cryptocurrency is the buzzword of 2017.
As we head into 2018, it's only fitting that the music industry would start to adopt cryptocurrencies in their store as well.
Monera has recently announced that 45 musicians, plus fiver online stores, will begin to accept the privacy coin this holiday season. While the list of musicians is growing, you can purchase merchandise from Alice Cooper, G-Eazy, Jason Aldean, HIM, Kaskade, Mariah Carey, Panic! at the Disco, Slayer, Weezer, and a number of other artists.
With a market capitalization of $3.5 billion, Monero is currently the ninth largest cryptocurrency in the market. “As cryptocurrencies become more popular, it’s important that my fans have choices when it comes to how they buy my songs and merchandis.” said G-Easy. “Given Monero is one of the safest, most secure and most private cryptocurrencies, it’s one of the best options for my fans this holiday season — and just in time for my new album.”
