Joins Major Online Retailer Overstock.com and San Jose Earthquakes
MLS Team in accepting the digital currency
BLUFFDALE, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
C7 Data Centers (C7), a leading provider of cloud, advanced IT and data
center colocation services, announced today it accepts the digital
currency bitcoin. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system and
cryptocurrency, so named because it uses cryptography to control the
creation and transfer of money, offering an alternative currency and
C7 accepts bitcoins through multiple online services, and will add
others as the market options expand. As a payment option, bitcoins offer
customers benefits such as low inflation risk, low collapse risk due to
its virtual global currency, and a safe and inexpensive form of payment.
Bitcoin has been growing in popularity, and C7 joins many other major
companies to accept the digital currency, including Overstock.com
(OSTK), the Sacramento Kings professional basketball team, the Richard
Branson-led aviation company Virgin Galactic, the popular blogging
platform Wordpress used by some of the biggest media companies in the
world (including The New York Times, CNN, Reuters and TechCrunch),
Tigerdirect (SYX), a major online retailer for electronic products, and
Zynga (ZNGA), the popular mobile gaming company.
C7 first became involved in bitcoin with its sponsorship of the soon to
be released documentary, “Life on Bitcoin.” Beccy Bingham, Director of
Marketing at C7, lived and traveled the world on the digital currency
with her husband for 101 days in 2013 while a film crew followed them on
their journey. The BBC, Al Jazeera, NPR and the Wall Street Journal have
profiled the project.
C7 Data Centers CEO Wes Swenson stated, “We are accepting bitcoins as an
option for account payment. C7 has received many requests over the last
few months to accept bitcoin payments, and is responding to the demand.
C7 is also one of the leading data centers to provide and host bitcoin
transaction processing. C7 strives to provide its global customers with
world-class service, and the pioneer of cryptocurrency will offer
another convenient payment option, as it is all about the customer at
