NEW YORK, December 16, 2014 – Time Inc. (NYSE:TIME) has partnered with Coinbase, the most popular bitcoin wallet, to become the first major magazine publisher to accept bitcoin payments. The initiative launched today with Fortune, Health, This Old House and Travel + Leisure, now accepting bitcoin among the wide variety of payment options for subscriptions.




“For a major publisher like Time Inc. to embrace bitcoin sends an important message to both its readers and to the broader media community,” added Brian Armstrong, CEO & co-founder of Coinbase. “In addition to providing consumers with an easy, convenient way to pay for their subscriptions, it also opens the door for Time Inc. and publishers like it to familiarize themselves with the Bitcoin technology and explore new applications across the industry.”
