Popular technology and start-up blog TechCrunch announced on Wednesday that they would be accepting bitcoin for admission to their Disrupt event taking place at the Manhattan Center in New York City.
Disrupt is a technology conference that focuses on bringing together tech startups — bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, hackers, and technology enthusiasts. The event features panels with well-known entities and even a hackathon.
TechCrunch is working with Coinbase to process the transactions, which comes as no surprise, as the San Francisco-based company in the midst of the start-up scene on the west coast.
Ticket prices aren’t cheap, starting at $497, going up to $1795 for an all-inclusive pass.
It raises the question: could it set the trend for tech conferences everywhere? Read more about TechCrunch Disrupt NY here.
