The new Black Edition earbuds will go on sale, starting December 13th via Flipkart in India. The sale begins at 12 noon on that date. Nothing has also announced that it will begin accepting cryptocurrency payments on its website, which means that customers will be able to buy the Nothing TWS earbuds with different cryptocurrencies such as  Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin. However, in India that would not be possible, as crypto coins are still not accepted as a method of payment here.
