Got Bitcoin? You Can Purchase a 3D Printer Or Filament for 5% Off

Share this Article

fargoBitcoin has had its ups and downs, over the past year or so. It has seen its price go from $90 all the way up to over $1200, before settling in the $400-$600 range. This is all in the past year. It has made some people millionaires, while others have lost a hefty portion of their net worth. Bitcoin has been marked with plenty of controversy, yet some people believe that it is the currency of the future.

3D Printing is not so different. It has also been marked by quite a bit of controversy. This is especially true when you consider all the possibilities that 3D printing will allow us to accomplish. There are plenty of good things, but also many possible bad things that could be brought about through 3D printing. Just like Bitcoin, there are many people that believe that 3D printing is the technology of the future.

One company, Fargo3DPrinting seems to think positively about both of these upcoming technologies. So much so, that they have decided to offer a 5% discount on their 3D printers and scanners, as well as filament, if purchased with Bitcoin.

Fargo, a company that just recently launched, specializes in 3D printer sales and services. They have just started to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment, thus they are marking the occasion with this 5% discount.

So far, Fargo only carries MakerBot 3D printers and scanners, as well as filament from MakerBot. A 5% discount may not seem like much, but when you consider the fact that a MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation 3D printer is priced at $2,899, it can make quite a dent. (That is a discount of $145).

Fargo also carries the Replicator 2X, as well as the Replicator Mini, Replicator 2, and the MakerBot Digitizer scanner. On top of this, they carry a plethora of filament choices and several parts & accessories.

In order to get your 5% discount, you must use discount code: BITCOIN5
