NAMESILO now accepts Bitcoin!
The new, up and coming registrar Namesilo now accepts bitcoin payments for all domain registrations, transfers, and renewals. They are becoming prominent in the registrar scene because of their low cost domains, holiday and random discounts, and FREE WHOIS PRIVACY!
Are you also sitting on the edge of your seat watching the Bitcoinity live chart going haywire all day, everyday for the last few days? The bitcoin price soaring from $237 a month ago up to $500 today’s maximum price (so far).
Now, lets speculate why this is happening? What are your opinions? (please comment your thoughts)
USAA integrating bitcoin balance for their banking customers??
Blockchain tech featured in The Economist magazine (or blockchain technology in general)
The Winklevoss’s launch of trading platform Gemini.com
Worldpay quietly supporting Bitcoin and Blockchain
Something happening in CHINA?
Maybe just a mix of them all, or some secret undercover shit that is way over our heads? Other ideas?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
I was walking around Makati area, actually Burgos St. area in Makati Manila Philippines and spotted a bitcoin ATM machine at Sunette Tower Suites. Bitcoin is growing around the world guys!
Bitstamp with 0.5% fee and then there’s Coinbase with 1% fee, I was wondering, why is this so high? and is this fair? I love bitcoin but really for an exchange to be taking 1% on all sells and all buys is just ridiculous imo. I love you Coinbase, love you bitcoin, but this really should be updated to a more fair amount.
The Winklevoss brothers are launching Gemini but it seems they have not yet released their fee amount. I emailed them already:
Hi, i’d like to know what kind of fees will Gemini have per transaction?
Coinbase has 1%, Bitstamp 0.5%
Where will you guys be at? I’m very interested, i’d love to see something lower than 1%, that is insane imo
I love you coinbase, and love your easy to use platform, but really, why the high fees?
UPDATE (Oct 18, 2015): Gemini replied that they have only 0.25% transaction fees!
Gemeni trading platform was approved and launched in New York. Their main investors are Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss and Gemeni will be licenced to operate in 26 states (for now). Hopefully growing to every state eventually.
