At south Mississippi church, members can give cryptocurrency

ST. MARTIN, Miss. (AP) — A south Mississippi church is allowing parishioners to give offering or pay tithes using cryptocurrency. WLOX-TV reports that Back Bay Baptist Church in St. Martin launched the new method of giving late last month. Pastor Adam Bennett says the church takes seven different assets: Bitcoin, Ethereum, USD coin, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Die, and Bitcoin cash. Bennett says the church still accepts traditional forms of currency, but he sees cryptocurrency being the future of currency transactions.
