Bitcoin payments now available
Well, we're thrilled to announce that Clever Cloud accepts Bitcoin.
Thanks to its rising popularity, this new payments solution has been integrated to Clever Cloud with the help of Bitpay (https://bitpay.com), the leading Bitcoin payment processor, used by famous companies like Zynga (with FarmVille) and <Wordpress.com>.
Although this currency has been described as controversial, Bitcoin is more and more used (up to $200M of daily transactions) and adopted by major economic actors. Clever Cloud aims to help the emmergence of new currency types by this Bitcoin integration.
