Earlier this week, Bitcoin’s value exploded when the US Department of Justice and Securities and the Exchange Commissions acknowledged it as “legitimate currency“.
Say what? That funny internet money is actually real money now? Man, 2013 sure is crazy.
Though this endorsement from the federal government adds to the legitimacy of Bitcoin, the real mark of Bitcoin’s rise is that you can now buy breast implants with Bitcoin.
Vanity Cosmetic Surgery, a South Florida company, is now accepting Bitcoins as payment. Their website states that patients “can now use their loaded Bitcoin account to pay for a breast augmentation or a nose job, or maybe a laser hair-removal treatment. This will definitely transform the way people will choose their doctors in the near future.”
Vanity Cosmetic Surgery is the only medical establishment to accept Bitcoins as payment and it supposedly benefits, “anyone, especially foreigners who do not want to exchange their currency for U.S. dollars, who already have a Bitcoin account.” But seriously, does anyone really use Bitcoin?
“I think that Bitcoin itself is revolutionary,” Carlos Yela, Vanity’s media liaison told Bitcoin magazine. “It’s a total new way of creating wealth and trade, and its growing popularity rate is so extraordinary.”
There is just one catch. New patients will only be able to pay 20% of their procedures with Bitcoin. Only returning patients can pay the full amount with fake money.
To be perfectly honest with you, I have no idea what Bitcoin is actually worth. But you can get bigger boobs via Vanity Cosmetic Surgery for only 3.53 Bitcoins, which costs $2,699 in real money.
That’s a good deal, right? Three is much less than two thousand. Minus the fact that you’ll have to get to South Florida somehow…
A full breakdown of their prices are available on the Vanity Cosmetic website.
