WordPress Brings Bitcoin to the Blogging Masses | Webmonkey

“Upgrading your WordPress.com blog no longer requires a credit card or PayPal account. Starting today you can raid your virtual piggy bank to pay for WordPress upgrades with the digital currency Bitcoin.”

This is interesting. How ‘virtual’ is bitcoin anyway? Maybe Linden Lab – the company behind Second Life – missed an opportunity here, they could have turned the Linden dollar into a currency going beyond virtual worlds. But bitcoin is far more radical, as it does not depend on one issuer, so it’s a different model.
