CloudFlare is a company that operates exclusively online. It specializes in helping websites run smoother, so it makes sense that they would consider Bitcoin for transactions sometime in the time. The cryptocurrency is more commonly known as "the currency of the Internet," considering it was created with the World Wide Web in mind. The announcement has stirred things up on Reddit, and many users were excited that CloudFlare will finally make a move towards cryptocurrency.

CloudFlare is good news for me.

We using their service, for a project I am busy with, so any reduced fee bonus, with them accepting BTC would help with a quicker ROI.

Let's see what impact that will have.

Cloudfare is very good news. Lots of bitcoin dice sites like PrimeDice use it, but is it confirmed they're going to accept it for certain. The article says might.

I promise it's still something we're working on. A complete rework of billing is scheduled for Q3. That will include PayPal (and Bitcoin).

Don't know much about that Rakuten company, but all I know is Play.com went to shit once they took over it.

Can't find anything about it on the Cloud Flare website.

It's not yet officially announced.
