Matt Gohd, CEO of Zero-G spoke to Michelle Makori, Lead Anchor and Editor-in-Chief of Kitco News about the space tourism industry.
Zero-G is an airline company that offers a simulated weightlessness experience to passengers at a fraction of the price compared to others in the space travel tourism business. Not only is Zero-G dabbling in space and science, the company is now accepting Bitcoin as payment for tickets. Describing the zero gravity experience, Matt Gohd, CEO of Zero-G said, “It is the single most unique experience a person could have.”
Gohd spoke to Michelle Makori, Lead Anchor and Editor-in-Chief of Kitco News.
Gohd explained why Zero-G is offering its customers the option of paying with Bitcoin. “We have partnered with Coinbase, in dealing with the crypto space. Our consumers will be able to purchase tickets with Bitcoin to start, and then pay with other cryptos as we become more comfortable with them,” he said. “Depending on where Bitcoin is in the price cycle, which changes frequently, we may stay long for a little while, and then turn the rest into cash.”
“But more importantly this is to give our consumers the option to pay and buy things with cryptos that they own,” Gohd added.
