In a year that has seen some parts of the traditional financial world embrace Bitcoin, it’s only fitting that other, less buttoned-up industries would take up cryptocurrency as well.
In that vein, Monero announces that 45 musicians, plus five other online stores, will be accepting the privacy coin this holiday season and offering discounts to those paying in the cryptocurrency.
The full list covers a wide range of artists, from Weezer to G-Eazy, from Slayer to the B-52s, from Dolly Parton to Morrissey.
Other big name artists include Backstreet Boys, Kaskade, Lana Del Rey, Lumineers, Marilyn Manson, Motley Crue and Sia. A complete list can be found here.
Monero is currently the ninth largest cryptocurrency, with a market capitalization of $3.5 billion; it has a price of $226.
