Accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option could potentially be the key for greater financial success for independent artists, like Flore, as well as, other small businesses.

Why not utilize some of the Bitcoin you have invested through the year(s) to buy a truly unique gift, support an amazing artist, and push the cryptocurrency industry forward?

What’s equally interesting is that Flore’s art is actually an investment in of itself and likely to increase in value over the years while bringing joy to anyone who appreciates creativity and expression through art.
