Forbes, now, starts to accept cryptocurrency for subscription as they are offering that one can see their articles without being interrupted by ads on the site by paying in crypto. One will have to pay $1 in digital currency for one week. To subscribe for one month, they will have to per the rate of the week that is $1 a week.
Ethereum accepted here
Currently, they are accepting payments in Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market volume. However, it is expected that they may start accepting in other cryptocurrencies as well. This is a great step on the part of Forbes because it will also allow them to pay in cryptos who are away from banks such as African countries.
