This is big news and the price of bitcoins has increased by 3% since the news broke out last week! source: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57550845-93/wordpress-begins-accepting-bitcoin-for-service-upgrades/
WordPress has announced it will begin accepting payment for upgrades via the controversial peer-to-peer currency Bitcoin, a move it promises will break down geographical and corporate boundaries.
While the popular blogging platform is a free service, it does offer paid upgrades such as custom designs and ad-free presentations. However, not everyone has access to those upgrades due to limits on traditional payment networks such as PayPal, which is blocked in more than 60 countries, notes Andy Skelton, code wrangler at WordPress parent Automattic.
