Museum accepts Bitcoin currency

The evolution continues in St. Petersburg as the St. Petersburg Museum of History recently announced that it is the first museum in Florida to accept Bitcoin – an online currency – for museum products, services and donations.

Invented in 2009, Bitcoin is an online currency that is outside of traditional banks, and controlled only by the people choosing to accept them.
