Bittorrent Hip-Hop Album Becomes First Ever to Accept Bitcoin

Toronto-based hip hop band Aint No Love have booked a world first with their new BitTorrent / Bitcoin venture. Alongside their regular iTunes offering, this week the group began distributing their album ‘Tears of Joy’ for free on BitTorrent, using FrostWire’s just-debuted in-client Bitcoin tipping feature.

Following a December 2013 teaser, February builds of FrostWire’s Windows, Mac and Linux BitTorrent clients included a ground-breaking new feature.

The Frostwire client, which can be used in the same way as uTorrent or Vuze for example, now includes a torrent creation feature which supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and PayPal donations.

Once a torrent is created and loaded into FrostWire, downloaders are given a new set of icons indicating which crypto-currency donation options are programmed into the release.
