Cory Vines, online activewear retailer, announced they will be accepting Bitcoin --- a peer-to-peer digital currency --- as a method of payment on its website for its line of affordable, minimalist workout clothes. Cory Vines is the first online U.S. activewear brand to date to accept the digital currency Bitcoin via BitCredit.
Bitcoin as a form of payment for products and services has seen growth in recent months. By cutting out the middleman, buyers and sellers of Bitcoins can deal with one another using direct deposits into a variety of digital wallets.
Staying ahead of the competition as the go-to spot for all clothing affordable in activewear, Cory Vines' Bitcoin acceptance is an example of the online retailer's dedication to customer satisfaction, as well as using innovative technologies to provide the best shopping experience. Cory Vines will start accepting Bitcoin on March 27, 2014.
"Cory Vines always strives to stay ahead of the curve, especially when it comes to delivering the most convenient ways for our customers to shop," said Daniel Lieberman, founder and CEO, Cory Vines. "In an effort to continue this tradition, as well as respond to our customers' recent requests for a cutting-edge payment and checkout option in a seamless, simple way, it's a logical fit."
Cory Vines offers a rainbow of v-neck, short-sleeved and long-sleeved tees, tanks, leggings, workout shorts, and a post-workout, around-the-town Neighborhood Collection of boatneck tops for women and henleys for men. All of the items are made with super-soft, breathable fabrics that "feel like a second skin," and look good both inside the gym and out.
Lieberman originally designed and launched the online activewear business to "beat megabrands at their own game." His family has been in the apparel industry for more than 60 years, and he felt the industry was missing "affordable, minimalist workout clothes." He decided it was time to fill the void and Cory Vines made its debut last April in 2013.
