Just recently, a friend of mine on Facebook shared that she would be starting the surrogacy journey. No, she wasn’t in need of a surrogate; she already has two healthy kids.

Using a photo of an adorable baby, he announced the world’s first “Bitcoin Baby.” No, this isn’t the story of a baby bought on the black market, but rather a baby conceived thanks to a discounted fertility treatment which was paid for using bitcoins.
