Paying For Phoronix Premium, Tips With Bitcoin

Recently there have been a number of inquiries about alternative forms of payment for Phoronix Premium.

Since rolling out the new Phoronix site and also reiterating the insane power use of benchmarking Linux daily, there have been many Phoronix readers about alternative forms of payment for Phoronix Premium. Right now, PayPal is the primary form for subscription handling given that it's supported by our forum software for managing the payments and is the most common Internet-based money transfer in primary markets.

However, as I've pointed out to users individually looking for alternatives and those asking within the forums, I do accept Bitcoin too. For those wanting to pay for Phoronix Premium via Bitcoin, you're able to do so. If sending the equivalent amount of Bitcoin of $35 USD to 1HefBsdstoALrbV3a3cLsVv5b5YLPLLvWn, email right away (phoronix at with the transaction ID and your forum user-name. From there I'll be happy to manually setup the one year of premium subscription for your account, etc.

I'm also looking at potentially integrating Skrill money transfer support for managing premium subscriptions as an alternative too; let me know if you're interested in seeing that support.

Aside from premium subscriptions, Phoronix tips are also happily accepted via that mentioned Bitcoin address. There was a lot of interest and requests from Phoronix readers in seeing Bitcoin acceptance and since starting to accept it last year, there's been very little result from adding this form of payment. More details on Phoronix Premium, the need for support or non-ad-blocking, here.
