Hublot Watch Brand’s New Big Bang Blockchain Model Only Accepts Bitcoin Payments
Hublot, a Swiss luxury watch brand has shown to the world its new creation, the Big Bang Blockchain watch. The new model was released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Bitcoin.
This edition will have only a limited edition of 210 pieces that will be able to be bought with Bitcoin only. Because of this, you have to buy it while you can. The number of units was created to symbolize the hard cap of Bitcoin: 12 million units.
The company has partnered with OS Limited (OSL) to promote and sell this model. The payment will be confirmed by email and you will receive your watch at the beginning of 2019. However, do not expect the price of the watches to be feasible for normal investors as this is one of the most important brands in the country and their products are very expensive.
You will be able to purchase this item with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Monero despite it being a homage to Bitcoin only.
Another company that is commemorating the Bitcoin anniversary is an art gallery in Paris that has recently announced a Bitcoin Art gallery to showcase the potential of the cryptocurrencies to the whole world.
Hublot's Positive View on Bitcoin
The elite Swiss watch brand has already stated some very positive noted on the Bitcoin market. According to the company, Bitcoin is a great revolution in the financial system and decentralization is very important for the market because it allows the information to be distributed in a way that nobody has the power to suppress it. Also, the technology is very original, according to the company, and can be used in different aspects of society.
Bitcoin Is 10 Years Old
Bitcoin was originally created by a mysterious figure called Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 at the height of the financial crisis caused by the bubble. Satoshi Nakamoto has published the white paper of the product entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” on October 31. This date is considered to be the ground zero for Bitcoin, although the first BTC was actually mined in January 3, 2009.
Almost 10 years have passed since then and many people have decided that Bitcoin was dead a dozen times since then but the crypto is still alive and kicking here. According to Cointelegraph, it was actually reported that Bitcoin was deemed dead 300 times.
At the moment, BTC is the most popular cryptocurrency in the world and it has a capitalization market of over $115 billion USD, according to CoinMarketCap.
