Los Angeles, CA, May 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Los Angeles, California /GLOBENEWSWIRE/- May 18, 2020 -KRONOS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, Inc., (OTC:KNOS) (“KNOS” or the “Company”) a product development and production company that has significantly changed the way air is moved, filtered and sterilized today announced that it accepts bitcoin through an integration with Coinbase. Consumers can pay for Kronos air purifiers and all of our products online using bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Kronos President and BDO Michael Rubinov said, “It’s great to see Kronos accept cryptocurrencies, adding these new purchasing options available to Coinbase users and all bitcoin enthusiasts whom are looking to spend bitcoin whilst opening new marketing opportunities for Kronos’ unique product lines.”
Bitcoinmarketjournal.com recently published research findings on bitcoin users:
Over 42 million bitcoin wallets had been established globally by December 2019
An estimated five percent of Americans hold Bitcoin
There are 7.1 million active bitcoin users
Leading cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has over 30 million users
Emerging market users that are often not considered in statistics are estimated to be in the millions.

Kronos ships worldwide so adding Bitcoin as a payment option made sense since crypto payments are global and have no risk of chargebacks as with legacy credit cards. Implementing Coinbase solution was seamless, saving 2 – 3% on each transaction made in cryptocurrency versus other payment methods. In our checkout page, the Coinbase logo is featured along other major payment providers to make it easy for customers to choose Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies as a payment option.
There are 8000+ merchants already accepting cryptocurrencies using Coinbase merchant services.
The Company anticipates that the addition of crypto payments via Coinbase will give the company access to a broader customer base with the potential to attract countless new sales opportunities not unlike the successes witnessed by Overstock.

ABOUT KRONOS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, Inc
Kronos Advanced Technologies, Inc. began operations in 2002 as a product development company which invented and significantly changed the way air is moved, filtered and sterilized. Historically, Kronos has focused on developing, marketing and selling the Company’s proprietary air movement and purification technology. Serving the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) market, Kronos technology uses state-of-the-art high voltage processes without the use of traditional HEPA filters. Kronos-based products move air silently, filter and purify the air, and dramatically reduce energy consumption to half of a 60-watt light bulb. Kronos devices can be variable in shape or size, and, therefore, have the potential to be scaled down for air purification in cars or scaled up in size for industrial and hazardous gas destruction. The technology is currently being implemented in standalone products to move and filter air replacing HEPA and other filtration systems. There are broad ranges of additional markets for standalone and embedded Kronos CORE technology based devices. Examples of immediately addressable markets include health care facilities, operating rooms, manufacturing clean rooms and cabins of automobiles and commercial aircraft.
Currently the Company is planning to file additional patents in order to improve its existing technology as well as enter into new market segments but will continue to market air purifiers and other consumer products. Recently the Company became the Exclusive distributor and licensee of the newest generation of air purifiers based on the Company’s CORE technologies.
