LOS ANGELES, CA, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Social Life Network, Inc. (OTC: WDLF) announces today that it will begin accepting Bitcoin as a payment from its Technology Business Incubator (TBI) licensees.
Having stunned markets with their revealing bet on Bitcoin earlier this year, Tesla announced they will now start accepting the world’s largest electronic currency as payments for its electric cars. Following the lead of companies like Square, MicroStrategy, and dozens of other high profile publicly traded companies, Social Life Network is now going to add Bitcoin to its own balance sheet.
Chief Executive Officer Ken Tapp on Friday tweeted: “Our licensees can now pay us with Bitcoin”.
Social Life Network announced in January of 2019 that its licensee, HuntPost.com, was going to accept cryptocurrency alongside fiat currency, through its newly launched e-marketplace. The purchase of products and services through the e-marketplace for HuntPost and the other Social Life Network licensees marketplace platforms is currently provided through the PayPal, BitPay and dozens of other international payment gateways. On March 30th of this year, PayPal Holdings Inc announced that it has started allowing U.S. consumers to use their cryptocurrency holdings to pay at millions of its online merchants globally, a move that could significantly boost use of digital assets in everyday commerce,” said Director Todd Markey.
In addition to lending increased legitimacy to electronic currency use throughout the Social Life Network licensee e-marketplaces, management’s embrace of Bitcoin as a source of payment for the 5% licensee fee on revenue from its TBI participating companies, fits their forward thinking growth strategy.
“Social Life Network will only use internal and open-source software and any Bitcoin paid to the company by our licensees will be retained as Bitcoin and not converted to a fiat currency. The 5% revenue share that we have built into our TBI licensee agreements will remain, priced in dollars,” added Tapp.
