We have seen Bitcoin slowly become a more accepted currency lately. With more online stores and services that accept Bitcoin, it is no surprise to see it come up in new marketplaces, but it is still refreshing.
TrueTobacco.com has become the first online tobacco shop to offer Bitcoin as an accepted currency. Currently celebrating their first year of business, the company has decided to pave way for the cryptocurrency in the online tobacco industry.
“We are proud to be the first online tobacco store to allow customers to purchase products using the BitCoin virtual currency. We have always offered the best prices, great service and fast delivery and now we can also boast being the only store of our kind to offer BitCoin checkout. We will of course conduct age verification for any such purchases to ensure our complete compliance with local, state and federal regulations,” said Nick Gordon, General Manager for TrueTobacco.com on adding the new currency to his payment options.

It seems that the nature of Bitcoin does not lock itself in to any specific industry, and before long we should see Bitcoin being supported by many other merchants as a viable payment option.
