Cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency that can be transferred over the Internet. TIME is aligning with the global movement towards cryptocurrency and aims to offer a variety of payment options that make sense for our subscribers.
This subscription option follows TIME’s recent coverage and expansion into the cryptocurrency space. In March 2021, TIME offered an exclusive series of three TIME covers as non-fungible tokens at auction, including one of the most iconic covers in TIME’s 98-year history, and the first-ever cover designed exclusively as a NFT.
