Time Magazine Will Accept ApeCoin


The well-known Time Magazine announced that it will accept ApeCoin for any subscription payment.  Yuga Labs, the inventors of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, released ApeCoin. Additionally, it is an Ethereum-based coin.

Last April, the magazine introduced the ability to pay for digital subscriptions with cryptocurrencies. The available options were with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies such as XRP, Ethereum, and Dogecoin.

Moreover, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have also been a topic of discussion at Time Magazine. Back in 2021, Times auctioned some of its covers as NFTs. Following cooperation with Grayscale, the magazine settled to storing Bitcoin on its balance sheet.

As of last week, the magazine, which has been around for 98 years, published its first issue as an NFT. Its cover had Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. Correspondingly, the programmer expressed his worry about the crypto industry. In that article, he states that the crypto space may evolve into a dystopia ruled by selfish individuals.

However, despite Yuga’s $127 million net sales last year, the company is attempting to raise capital at $5 billion. Some of Yuga’s projections about revenue from virtual land sales are published. It could reach $455 million in net revenue by 2022.
