Billionaire Peter Thiel’s Palantir To Accept Bitcoin Payments
Bitcoin News now admin /

Billionaire Peter Thiel’s publicly-traded Palantir Technologies Inc. told Bloomberg it is preparing for a “black swan event” by inviting customers to pay for its data analytics software in Bitcoin.

Notably, the American company announced it would be accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment and hedge against uncertainty, before adding precious metals as well.

A spokeswoman told Bloomberg that no one has paid the firm in Bitcoin yet. COO of Palantir Shyam Sankar commented that accepting Bitcoin “reflects more of a worldview.”
