Hey friends,

I just came across their news page, and there's some amazing entry to see for today.

Just a short story before I go on:
Since I heard about the BitCoin, I was thinking that this currency was perfect for one-click hosters. It provides a decent anonymity, it is easy to obtain, and people who buy vpn-accounts to download anonymously from those hosters would sure as hell buy premium accounts using btc. So I went on 2 weeks ago, asking the staff of ul.to whether they could consider payments via bitcoin, and or if they could consider affiliate payouts via bitcoins. Today it really happened(I hope I wasn't the only one suggesting the BTC)

Ok, so heres the real news:

Since rapidshare fagged out all their uploaders by removing their affiliate program and introducing a pricing model that seems at best shiny, uploaded.to has become the new #1 one-click hoster in the german area, one of the leading one-click hosters in europe and the US. Today they featured a news entry on their site, stating that they would start accepting bitcoins from today(however, they still haven't implemented the thing in their premium payment plan, but there are some features defect in their affiliate backend, so I guess they are sitting on that just right now). Uploaded.to, a top industry company in filesharing does currently acquire about 50-70 thousand new customers every month, as well as they have over 2 million existing customers. They can provide a decent trading volume in Bitcoins, thus making the bitcoin more stable(because they offer a volume that could be higher than the current coin creation rate) and provide some incent for other one-click hosting corporations to join in with bitcoins.

Heres the links:

well, it seemed to be the best place here, as the "Market Discussion", although being described as "place to discuss sites accepting BTC" seems to be the wrong place, as almost any site promoted there is just either spam or a fraudulent lottery scheme. But since a supporting corporation with that kinds of trade volumes is a whole new global player, I figured it would suit this section as well

well, I don't want to claim to be the sole responsible for this, however I consider my mail to them helped. Let's see if some filesonic/fileserve see a reason to follow uploaded's lead :-)

as the first file hosting service worldwide, to accept bitcoins.

This is not true. Wuala is accepting bitcoins for a while now.

But these are great news. Lots of people use uploaded.to

EDIT: OK, it may be true for 1 click hosters. Wuala has more of a Dropbox/Sugargync approach.

I'd say this is a pretty good achievement. They're a medium to big sized player in the filehosting market.

Persuade filesonic, filefactory, megaupload/rapidshare to accept BTC and you will start seeing mass adaption of bitcoins just for this one market

The internet is full of people who want to spend pocket change for download credits but have no means to do so (PayPal doesn't let them, no credit card, etc)

Wonderful news!

You should post this in the main forum  Cheesy

And i quote Jack of diamonds, being able to spend by using bitcoin is very nice, much much simpler than having to use a credit card or paypal or what else

Also full of people who have credit cards, but don't want to use them to pay for pirated material, which people often upload to 1-click hosters.

Bitcoin will help them stay anonymous while enjoying premium service.

I would be happier to see Amazon accepting Bitcoins instead of a platform for stolen goods. Not good for Bitcoin reputation... makes Bitcoin look shady and unattractive for "real" companies.

I will sign you up anonymously at realitykings.com (http://rk.com)[NSFW] for Bitcoins with 20% discount!

That's good for two things:

#Every company joining the BTC train is good for us
#Warez1337s haz n0ledg3 ab0ut interwebz and likes BTC

Porn-site reselling doesn't make BTC look shady then?

I'm a single person and not a big warez reseller company like ul.to. I offer to sign you up at realitykings.com directly, the porn producers themself will get the money and not some stupid kiddies for "their" uploads or a warez company.

ul.to will sure give Bitcoins a push(in the german speaking part of europe) i'm just saying i would prefer to see more clean business companies.

agreed. a pir8 surge would be good for bitcoin values (and more importantly imho, bitcoin liquidity).

+more 'clean' businesses.. we could do with both Cheesy
