TrackingPoint, the company behind the super-accurate smart rifle, is now allowing customers to pay for its weapons, which retail for about $10,000, in bitcoin.

The Austin, Texas-based company makes rifles equipped with sensors and a Linux computer built into the scope that make it possible for even an inexperienced shooter to hit their target every time.
