Buy your ticket to space with bitcoins

  • It's only appropriate that you buy your flight tickets to outer space with cyberspace currency. 

    According to Virgin Galactic founder Sir Richard Branson, space travelers can use bitcoins to pay for their flights instead of using traditional currency to do so. 

    Branson, who himself has invested in bitcoins, said there isn't much risk involved with it. Tickets to space cost about 350 bitcoins as of now, which amounts to $250,000. 

    Trips are expected to begin next year.
