Accepts Bitcoin payments

22 Nov, 2013

Branson announces that Virgin Galactic is accepting Bitcoin:

The first ticket we sold was actually today was to a stewardess in Hawaii who made quite a a lot of money by getting into Bitcoin early on.

The company transferred the ticket price into dollars:

So there’s a fixed price … [and] we can actually pay her money back, if she changes her mind about going to space in a few months.

If Virgin Galactic didn’t have a refund policy, it might be willing to conduct a pure Bitcoin transaction.
