Bitcoin Payment Method

Bitcoin is a Peer to Peer digital currency with worldwide implications. Its value is changing rapidly just like oil did during its early days of adoption.

That aside, it is a new technology and is beginning to be widely used. One of the largest internet company's in China started accepting them, WordPress accepts them and many more are starting to accept them every day.

I don't want to see Digital Ocean lose out on this technology.

I suggest you take a good hard look in the adoption of this new payment system.

        Love bitcoin and it would make it so easy, plus save DO more money on the bottom line to use it. Everybody wins.

        Well I am in a tough situation here. Wanting to use DO badly but they don't seem to accept prepaid/debit cards. For the same reason, I am not able to transfer money from my PayPal. Something like bitcoin would a huge sigh of relief.

        There's a service which accepts BTC payments and provides DO hosting:
        https://bithost.io/

        But I'd be very cautious about using them plus 3$ extra every month may add up to a lot in longer run.

        I just got this e-mail.

        --
        Dear (me),

        You recently tried to pay with PayPal but the transaction was declined because your debit/credit card provider did not allow it to go through.
        --

        Probably because I'm living in Korea and Korean credit cards have trouble buying abroad.

        Get on with accepting Bitcoin ASAP!

        I love DO, but I can't pay to you, because my card is not accepted and i hate paypal. WE NEED BITCOINS!

      • AnonAnon commented  · 

        I would certainly have used Bitcoin if the option existed. I was surprised that Bitcoin wasn't an option. People want to use droplets for things like IRC to prevent their home IP being exposed, for increased security.

        Use coinbase to start integration into DO. Do want this feature!!!

      • cyberlizardcyberlizard commented  · 

        Do it! You're running late in adopting anyway :)

        Moar publicity!!!!

        cons:

        learning how to take bitcoin payments
        training your staff on using bitcoin

      • TomasTomas commented  · 

        We are a Bitcoin company that uses DO for our hosting needs, paying with Bitcoin would be fantastic!

        I use AWS almost exclusively but would absolutely move some infrastructure to Digital Ocean if payment could be made in Bitcoin.

      • adam sahadam sah commented  · 

        My real-world food business accepts bitcoin and uses DO for hosting - we'd love to spend our BTC instead of cashing it out. bbfdirect.com

        I've been using you guys for 6 months, and I love the service. I'll love you more if you adopt bitcoin.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Currently, non-bitcoin-adoption is the only thing stopping me from choosing Digital Ocean.

      • Anonymous commented  ·
