Bitcoin is rapidly being adopted by thousands of different business around the world. One of the most recent additions to the list of businesses that accept Bitcoin as a payment method is Cloud 9 Hosting, a leading provider of web hosting services. The hosting platform has recently made it possible for customers to use the cryptocurrency as a form of payment for their VPS and web hosting services.
The CTO of Cloud 9 Hosting, Matt Dubois, has stated that the move is a positive step towards the support of innovative technological platforms and entrepreneur communities across a broad spectrum of different industries. The Cloud 9 Platform promotes itself as the “entrepreneurs cloud”, and according to Dubois, is driven by the aim of supporting high-tech entrepreneurs.
Dubois states that the adoption of Bitcoin as a payment method aligns with the core principles of Cloud 9 Hosting and allows them to stay ahead of the curve as an early adopter of emerging technology and a forward thinking organization. The Cloud 9 Platform views technology as a mechanism that catalyzes change within the business world. To Cloud 9, cryptocurrency represents the next big thing in the payment world, and as a market leader the platform wants to keep leading from the front.
In addition to Cloud 9 Hosting, several other businesses have recently adopted Bitcoin as a payment method. Cloud 9 Hosting joins the ranks of other forward-thinking organizations such as NewEgg, Overstock, Shopify, Expedia, Reddit, Microsoft, and Bloomberg.
Bitcoin has been the dominant force in the cryptocurrency marketplace for several years now. By adopting Bitcoin as a payment method, Cloud 9 Hosting is delivering to its customers both a high degree of flexibility and a dramatic reduction in payment costs.
Bitcoin is the largest and most highly valued peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency in the world. In order to acquire Bitcoin, it’s necessary to create a Bitcoin wallet with a “hot” managed wallet solution such as Coinbase or BitPay, or set up a “cold” wallet hosted locally.
Bitcoins stored in a wallet can be used to send and receive payments from anywhere in the world from virtually any device, and offers users a secure and instant way to transfer value.
