In the new age of cryptocurrency, OneRepublic becomes the first band in The United States to take Bitcoin as a form of payment for a concert.
The concert took place on November 16th for a acoustic special hosted in a theater outside of Vienna at Hayden Hall. The band used the strike peer to peer bitcoin payment to accept as a form of payment.
Ryan Tedder, singer and songwriter of the band states ” My band and I are so happy to be apart of something that is the future of how payments are transacted.” Tedder also states that he has a private concert soon to be announced where he will be accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment.
It seems that the group values Bitcoin and are hoping to take advantage of using it whenever they are able to. I think this is a great idea for anyone who wants to dabble into crypto and get the hang of using it.
