The artist will accept Bitcoin, Litecoin, DASH, and AudioCoin. Interestingly, the album cannot be purchased using normal fiat currencies.Read more: https://cointelegraph.com/news/bjorks-latest-album-available-only-with-cryptocurrencies-shows-adoption
The move by the musician may seem like a marketing strategy of sorts to appear unique and to draw attention during a time when Bitcoin’s rise has brought cryptocurrencies into the mainstream. However, according to Kevin Bacon of Blockpool:
"This really isn’t a marketing strategy with Björk. This is a decision to be a leader. In fact, it’s just the obvious thing to do for her. If I wasn’t involved in this project, I’d expect Björk to be a leader in this area, and for her team to be doing creative things with crypto.”
I'm still not sure how I feel about her music. Part of me really likes some of her songs but other times I think she is a no-talent ass clown the like Yoko Ono.
