The newest art gallery in Downtown Dayton is breaking new ground again by now accepting the hot cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. The Edward A. Dixon Gallery is no doubt among the first area businesses to accept Bitcoin, especially in the art market.
Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an unknown person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are made with no middle men – meaning, no banks! Bitcoin can be used to book hotels on Expedia, shop for furniture on Overstock and buy Xbox games. But much of the hype is about getting rich by trading it. The price of bitcoin skyrocketed into the thousands in 2017. (source money.cnn.com)
The Edward A. Gallery is also accepting Ethereum and Ripple as part of its payment method expansion. In a very rapidly changing market, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple represented the top 3 digital currencies by market capitalization at the time of this press release.
