    Mel B. is a forward thinker and digitally open-minded. As of Christmas Day, December 25, the former Spice Girl is accepting bitcoins, the digital-only currency, for the purchase of her new single "For Once in My Life."

    Fans can purchase the song via her website. Mel B., formerly Scary Spice, teamed up with Cloudhashing.com to be the first musical artist to accept this cutting edge new currency.

    "I love how new technology makes our lives easier, and to me, that’s exciting. Bitcoin unites my fans around the world using one currency. They can just pay using bitcoins," the singer said.

    Not familiar with bitcoins? Well, here's what you need to know. Bitcoin is an increasingly popular online currency and technology that is revolutionizing the way online purchases are made.

    Due to the extremely low transaction costs of using bitcoins, Mel B's fans will enjoy lower prices when purchasing with the new currency.
