Meet the world’s first Bitcoin baby

“Dr. C. Terence Lee, a fertility specialist based in Brea, Calif., flashes a photo of a beaming infant across a projection screen and announces: ‘This baby was bought with bitcoins.’ No, this isn’t a black-market deal brokered in the Internet’s shadowy corners. The child was born thanks to a frozen embryo transfer cycle paid for with bitcoins. Lee says it’s the first time he’s aware of that anyone has paid for fertility treatments that way. The baby is the biggest — and definitely the cutest — victory yet for Lee in his campaign to persuade his patients to pay him for his services with bitcoins.”
