In one of the big developments, the renowned comedian and producer in America, Louis Székely who is also known as Louis C.K has started to accept Bitcoin payments for his comedy show performed at Madison Square Garden. Though there have been some singers that have in past started accepting Bitcoin payments, this will be perhaps first time a comedian does so.
The official website shows that the audio-only show can be purchased with Bitcoin through BitPay, and customers can choose the price for this audio album. According to the website Louis C.K says that he has the price set to 5 dollars but people can lower it to 1 dollar or raise it to 85. That’s the maximum, because beyond that, he does not want crazy money.
Louis C.K., the creator, star, writer, director, executive producer and primary editor of the acclaimed FX comedy series Louie, has had supporting acting roles in films such as The Invention of Lying, American Hustle, and Blue Jasmine. He is also noted for being among the first performers to offer direct-to-fan sales of tickets to his stand-up shows.
Interestingly, the decision makes Louis C.K the first comedian ever to accept Bitcoin for comedy albums and shows
