Now you can use Bitcoins to buy a high-tech, $27,500 rifle that lets even an inexperienced shooter hit a target 10 football fields away.
Austin, Texas-based gun maker TrackingPoint announced Thursday that it’s accepting Bitcoin for its smartscope rifles, which allows novices to accurately shoot targets at 1,000 yards.
Bitcoin is a digital currency that’s gaining popularity for being independent of any government–and difficult to trace to actual people.
TrackingPoint decided to give Bitcoin a try after several customers inquired about it. “It was easy to set up, and we are genuinely interested in seeing the response,” said Schauble.
