Recently, we wrote about satellite TV provider Dish Network beginning to accept Bitcoin. It was big news. On 18th July 2014, another huge announcement was made in favor of the digital currency – Dell began accepting bitcoin on their website.
We’re piloting bitcoin, the world’s most widely used digital currency, as a purchase option on Dell.com for consumer and small business shoppers in the U.S, stated the company’s blog. We’re excited to bring you the choice and flexibility this payment option offers and have partnered with Coinbase, a trusted and secure third party payment processor, to make this possible.
We’ve fostered a close partnership with the Dell team and that’s been instrumental in getting the Coinbase integration up and running in such a short timeframe. We look forward to continuing to support the team as they explore other ways to offer even more functionality when it comes to bitcoin payments, commented Fred Ehrsam, Co-Founder of Coinbase, in the same blog statement.
