Los Angeles, CA (Dec. 03, 2013) -Â LA-based creative agency filmanthropos revolutionizesÂ bitcoinÂ philanthropyÂ as it becomes world’s first creative agency to acceptÂ bitcoinÂ as payment.
Los Angeles-based creative agency filmanthroposÂ announced on #givingtuesday that it has become the world’s first creative agency to accept bitcoin, a purely digital currency that has gained significant momentum. Today, filmanthropos is the only US-based agency to accept bitcoin donations for social good, placing the agency on the forefront of revolutionizing bitcoin philanthropy.
Bitcoin began Â in 2008 at the height of the financial crisis, and is the world’s first open-source, decentralized digital currency.Â The currency uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks. Bitcoin gained prominence in 2012 and has been in headlines ever since. A number of notable vendors accept bitcoin today, including WordPress, Reddit, and a group of Etsy merchants.
filmanthropos specializes in multi-platform storytelling for causes, philanthropies, and corporate CSR initiatives, and dedicates over 50% of its efforts towards pro-bono services to non-profits.Â For the time being, filmanthropos is accepting bitcoin as donations that go towards scaling their current 50% pro bono service offering to non-profits. The agency plans to extend the bitcoin option to clients as an acceptable form of service-based payment by year-end.
â€œWeâ€™re fascinated by the growing bitcoin phenomenon,” said Jasmine Youssefzadeh, filmanthropos Founder. “We strive to remain on the forefront of technology, and aim to Â provide as many options as possible for our clients and community to support our social good efforts.”
