Bluebird Botanicals now accepts cryptocurrency payments with Bitcoin, Litecoin, and 70+ Altcoins.
One of Bluebird’s core values is promoting a sustainable and healthy global community, and we believe that blockchain technology and decentralized payments will revolutionize the global economy in furtherance of our company mission. To incentivize our customer base to use cryptocurrencies, and in an effort to do our part in mainstreaming blockchain tech, we offer customers 20% off for all cryptocurrency purchases.*
If you are new to cryptocurrency, the Bitcoin.org FAQ Page is a great place to start.
Coinbase is currently the most popular application for those who are new to cryptocurrency. It is a relatively easy way to purchase Bitcoin and Litecoin using your credit card or bank account. However, due to the large volume of users, Coinbase transaction times are generally longer, and come with higher fees.
If you plan to make regular purchases using Cryptocurrency, we suggest downloading a simple wallet application to make payments. You can research Bitcoin.org recommended wallets here.
