Since March 1st, 2014, Film Annex has started paying its community of Content Partners (Filmmakers and Bloggers) in Bitcoin (BTC), which is a peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency that can be used for online payments and transactions.

Film Annex believes that Bitcoin is a more efficient payment and low cost system for its community of 300,000+ registered users from 245 countries, Islands and Territories.

This week, Film Annex launched its marketplace where users will be able to buy products online with their Bitcoin. The revenues will be available immediately if the user chooses to spend them in the marketplace, with no minimum amount. Film Annex’s users can now buy Amazon gift cards of several different amounts, starting at BTC 0.0019 ($1.00). Many other items will be available soon in the marketplace.

The Film Annex marketplace is easily accessible from the website beta version and symbolized on the Film Annex homepage by a shopping cart icon.
