In this page, I intend to list and test all the Usenet binaries providers that accept bitcoins as payment.
- chundle.com (to be tested)
Please post a comment if you know other providers. Cheers.
The process is extremely simple if you already have bitcoins. Make an account on Bitusenet, they give you automatically a unique bitcoin address to make your payment, and when they receive your payment, your login information can be used to connect to the NNTP server.
Now, bear in mind that this is my first purchase with Bitcoins. I used MtGox as an e-wallet, using their green address with means that the fund go through an intermediate Bitcoin adress, with means it will take longer. I also chose ‘open transaction’ which means that the transactions goes through the Bitcoin blockchain instead of internally at MtGox, and I also chose not to pay a fee to the miners (nowadays miners accept free transactions but this could change in the future) which could possibly make the transaction even longer.
Transaction cleared at bitusenet after a few hours:
If you have bitcoins to spend, this is the best. If you’re in a hurry I suggest you use your credit card instead!
No comments to make on the binaries server, I have tried it for a few days and it seems good.
