Address generation doesn't work and thus deposits are not working.  Typically they're slow to fix things, but I'm hoping it will be fixed within a week or two.

I'm not an expert.  Started using Ultraseedbox.  Accepts bitcoin. Requires email address.  Seems pretty good.  I accidentally left my torrents running and went over bandwidth - so we'll see how that goes.  It's cheaper than bitfetch if you are doing lots of downloading (40 gb/month or more).  Bitfetch was a better service for people who only need say 10 GB/month.

it's rather old, but here's a list of seedboxes accepting bitcoin

http://seedboxgui.de/guides/seedbox-providers-accept-bitcoin/

Doesn't seem to me those make sense for casual usage.

Bitfetch was ideal for me. I'd download 500MB to 4 Gigs or so once every 2 weeks on average. Doesn't make sense to buy any monthly planned stuff for that.

I think I might try a shared seedbox from http://yourseedbox.com/page/shared_seedbox for €1,85 + VAT per month.

I read somewhere they take bitcoin (haven't made it to the checkout yet).

Oh my god, I'm in the process of trying yourseedbox.com seedserver.

What a major fucking hassle.

Sorry to vent here, but it this just points out how much a service like bitfetch is needed.

Took me about 90 minutes to go through all of this crap:

  • to buy 1.89€ shared seebox (turns out to be €2,80 in the end), I have to fill out a form, pay btc via bitpay, email support about failed bitpay payment (they reacted quickly).
Not to mention having to register an email address somewhere.
  • put up with 2 different quite crappy control panels (at least they seem to work, though)
  • find out that a torrent (with many seeds) I managed to start to download wouldn't download (hangs at "connecting peers" for 10 minutes)
  • find out (they said this before I admit) that I can only dl 2 torrents simultaneously.
  • find out that my type of control panel (torrentflux) doesn't support magnet urls at all
  • click "convert to torrentcloud" control panel so I can use magnet urls
  • read message that "high priority conversion within 24 hours cost €30", low priority is free, but takes up to a week (best effort)

what the hell?!?

I wonder how much time and money I will have spent until I successfully downloaded something.

Compare to bitfetch:

  • top up account by sending BTC to a bitcoin address
  • paste magent/torrent url

EDIT: I came down a bit from my rage. They switched me to torrentcloud very quickly (support seems to be top-notch so far). That is a way better interface and I can actually download stuff now.

I still uphold that we need a bitfetch-style service, though ;-)

I don't know what happened, but it used to be an excellent service. I hope it gets back, if not then some alternative is badly needed.

I wish it would get back because the owner has made the right choices. It was doing what it was supposed to and it was doing it very well. I also tried some old funding address without any luck (probably bitcoind died?). Fetching still works fine.

Variance is a bitch!

  • read message that "high priority conversion within 24 hours cost €30", low priority is free, but takes up to a week (best effort)
Cheesy I have no idea how the premium service could still take up to 24 hours. They must set the waiting period server-side with a RNG, or else they send all the work over to a single RPi.

TorrentFlux isn't too shabby, though. The NG fork handles magnet links through Mainline or Transmission. Maybe someone can be found on the forum who'd be willing to throw it up for us.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal
