UK-based private jet charter service PrivateFly.com has revealed its first celebrity bitcoin passenger completed a flight from Brussels to Nice, Cote D’Azur on January 27, 2014. More than 700-mile flight was taken by tech entrepreneur, Bitcoin Foundation lifetime member and bitcoin millionaire, Oliver Janssens.
While such an extravagant bitcoin purchase may seem surprising, Janssens said that because his investments require him to travel extensively, he was keen to support PrivateFly in its decision to accept bitcoin.
PrivateFly CEO Adam Twidell noted that the same-day nature of the payment showcased one of the primary benefits of the emerging virtual currency.
“Mr. Janssens’ flight was booked on the same day as departure, which is not at all unusual for us – and across our industry. With bitcoin payment being fast, flexible and not subject to banking hours, it’s a good fit,” the former Royal Air Force pilot said.
Using and acquiring some pieces of this crypto currency is totally an advantage into our uncertain world. Until now, bitcoin has its long journey to travel to become an additional world currency that people could recognize and use same with fiat money circulating around us. Good thing is no one can foresee the life of its existence.
