British Rapper Welcomes Crypto Payments and “HODLs”

Up and coming British musician Zuby has joined the crypto community and started accepting digital currencies. He announced the decision earlier this month on Twitter.

Via Coinbase Commerce, the rapper’s fans can make cryptocurrency payments for its merchandise and other services. In his Team Zuby Official Store, one can buy the artist’s CDs, ebook, T-shirts, hoodies, caps, and more. Every product from the Team Zuby brand, a 100% independent business, reflects the rapper’s ethos of authenticity, positivity, and inspiration.

The cryptocurrencies accepted are bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, and litecoin.

‘Bitcoin Acceptance’ doesn’t necessarily mean “accepting BTC.” We’ve all read about numerous previous high-profile Bitcoin “acceptance” stories. However, more often than not, when a big company claims to accept Bitcoin, they get the funds via a mediator like BitPay and then immediately converts that money to fiat currency.

Although Zuby is working with Coinbase Commerce to facilitate payments for his goods and services, he made it clear that he didn’t intend to immediately convert crypto payments to fiat currency. When some users of Twitter asked the rapper what he is going to do with the crypto he gets, Zuby answered simply: “HODL.”

After a suggestion from a user, Zuby said that he would look into using BTCPayServer, a cryptocurrency payment processing platform more favored by crypto enthusiast than BitPay or Coinbase Commerce.

Zuby is more than a musician. He is an author, podcaster, public speaker, fitness expert, and life coach. Zuby was born in England and raised in Saudi Arabia, where he attended an international school. While studying Computer Science at Oxford University, he started rapping and within months self-released his first album Commercial Underground. Since then, he had 25,000+ album sales and 100+ gigs in 8 different countries, including the UK, USA, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Germany and Czech Republic.
