The company Synergetic Press is currently accepting Bitcoin, turning into the first publisher to deal with cryptocurrency as a form of payment.
The decision was made in order to please the “readers who are familiar with digital currency”, according to the company. Already known for publishing “books that deepen our understanding of Earth’s living systems and the role of human culture within them”, Synergetic Press is now probably the first publisher to accept Bitcoin, as well.
From now on, it’s possible to purchase the company’s books with virtual coins on their website. You just need to select the option “Pay using Bitcoin” during your checkout. If you include the coupon code ‘BITCOIN’ during the process you will get 10% off your order.
Synergetic Energy ships their books to any part of the world, but there are fees, of course. Unless you order five or more books, this way you get the free shipping anywhere in the world.
