We got a press release from Bitpay regarding 50 Cent’s new album Animal Ambition which can be purchased at http://shop.50cent.com with bitcoin via BitPay.
Since we like rap music we wanted to give it a try. Both for the album and also the buying experience.
We don`t regret it. The album is really good and the purchase was like a piece of cake.
Here is how to buy a 50 Cent`s album:
1. Go to http://shop.50cent.com
2. Click “add to cart” (don`t get afraid that the Bitcoin payment option is not there)
3. Fill out your information
4. Don`t forget the Discount code: “Reddit550” We forgot it :(
Now you can see the bitcoin payment option here, choose that.
5. Here is the BTC address, send your payment there.
We used our Blockchain account.
6. The payment was successful!
7. Order Confirmation arrives, 50 Cent says that we will shortly get the download link!
8. 50 was right! The e-mail with the link arrived in 5 minutes.
It is great to see more and more artist accepting Bitcoin. Hopefully 50 Cent management move will show a great example to the others as well.
