Weezer, G-Eazy, Mariah Carey and More Accepting Monero for the Holidays
Dozens of artists and five digital stores will accept Monero this holiday season, and anyone who buys albums with the popular privacy coin will get a discount.
The full list of artists includes more big names like the Backstreet Boys, Dixie Chicks, Kaskade, Marilyn Manson, Mötley Crüe, Toby Keith, Lana Del Rey, Lumineers and Sia.
The crypto sale was put together by Project Coral Reef, created by entrepreneur and music industry veteran Naveen Jain as a community-driven effort to generate mainstream adoption of privacy coin Monero.
“As cryptocurrencies become more popular, it’s important that my fans have choices when it comes to how they buy my songs and merchandise,” said Rapper G-Eazy in a statement. “Given Monero is one of the safest, most secure and most private cryptocurrencies, it’s one of the best options for my fans this holiday season.”
Over the last few weeks, Monero has doubled in value to more than $200 on Coinmarketcap.
