To that end, the Foundation is offering memberships at various levels. Premier Industry Memberships go for 10,000 Bitcoins per year ($124,000), and Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox has already signed on. The Foundation has also signed up BitInstant and CoinLab for Industry memberships, which go for 2,500 Bitcoins per year ($31,000).

Nice!
