    Probably better to accept dogecoin since Bitcoin is an investment currency and not a spending currency.

      No it's not. All the alt-coins are pretty useless at this point, the only one with anything even remotely resembling wider adoption and acceptance is Bitcoin. That may change in the future, but right now Bitcoin is the stablest and most reliable cryptocurrency, and it actually is meant as a transactional currency. Just because some people invest in it doesn't make it an "investment currency" any more than people investing in dollars or euros makes them an "investment currency".

        If you want that to happen, host your own ads and guarantee they aren't distributing malware. Otherwise, fuck off.

          You can also engage in vibrant discussions within the Phoronix Forums.
          Reminded me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-PjyRwfedk (...we are very vibrant in theater and arts...)

            Thanks for accepting Cryptocurrency by anonymous scientist Satoshi Nakamoto!

            Thanks for accepting Bitcoin, the first Cryptocurrency released by legendary Satoshi Nakamoto!
            If this turns successful maybe you'll accept Bitcoin for premium subscriptions?

            Looks good so far! https://blockchain.info/address/1Hef...sVv5b5YLPLLvWn
            Just today about 1000$ looks extraordinary...

              heh, michael made some money with this already
              I agree with scottishduck, you should accept dogecoins and litecoins. in fact, you should accept any coins. you can trade them easily in cryptsy.com afterwards for/from btc, and every trader will give you an address to receive your coins...

                I bet Paypal tips don't gather 1000$ just like that.

                  Common guys, Michael is not a trader. Michael's day job is writing articles and reports on phoronix, as well as handling the whole benchmarking business. That already fill his work time enough.
                  He's simply going to accept whatever the payment processor he's using accepts.
                  No free time for more.

                  (With maybe a slight exception at some point of time in the future for Litecoin and Primecoin as those could make nice GPU and CPU benchmarks for phoronix test suit. But's that's only my opinion. We'll see if Michael is actually interested into implementing those).

                    Well since then it's basically been flat with no further action (aside from BTC taking a dive since then...)

                      You haven't really mentioned it since then. Put your BTC address to the left side bar, right under the Phoronix Premium ad, and you will have a stable stream.
