Oh Good, You Can Now Use Bitcoin To Fly In A Space Plane

Congratulations to all aspiring crypto-currency cosmonauts out there; you’ll soon be able to use Bitcoin, everyone’s favourite pseudomonetary bubble, to book flights on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space boats.

Bitcoin, which is currently hovering above $US700 American in value for no discernible reason, has already been used to purchase one of the $US250,000 round trips to space. If you’re a Bitcoin enthusiast, your options seem to be either to sit tight and wait for the currency to once again quintuple in value, or to buy fast before it comes crashing back down in a haze of libertarian angst.

Choose wisely! And whichever way you go, I hope it lands you in the suborbit. [Virgin Galactic via Verge]
