TigerDirect Now Accepting BitcoinJanuary 23, 2014
TigerDirect this week became both the first major CE retailer, the first major online retailer in any space and the largest company to date to begin accepting the crypto-currency Bitcoin.
Payments will be processed through BitPay.
“TigerDirect has always been on the forefront of alternative online payment methods and delivering the most convenient ways for our customers to shop,” Steven Leeds, Director of Corporate Marketing at TigerDirect, said in a statement.
“With individuals building their own high-powered PCs with parts offered on our site to mine Bitcoins, it’s a logical fit.”
