Scottish beer brewery BrewDog has extended its crowdfunding campaign to include investment from 10 cryptocurrencies, according to a tweet published on Thursday.
BrewDog launched its fundraiser – aptly named “Equity for Punks” – in 2010 and has since raised £72.2 million.
Equity for Punks allows casual investors to purchase shares for just £25 each, with options to purchase in BTC, BCH, BSV, ETH, LTC, OMG, QTUM, REP, and ZRX now being made available.
In an official statement, the brewing company said: “This is the natural next step for us as a business. James and Martin started BrewDog to be an alternative to the status quo; to challenge perceptions and revolutionise their industry. The developers, miners, and users of cryptocurrency are exactly the same. Joining forces to link the old and new financial systems is a perfect fit.”

To incentivise crypto supporters, BrewDog has announced that each investor will receive “six cans of Cryptonite West Coast IPA”.
So far, BrewDog has a total of 114,000 registered shareholders. This number is expected to rise as the program will continue until April 2020.
