This actually may be related to yesterday's China-led rally. The announcement (published on 15 Oct) mentions that they start accept bitcoin on 14 Oct. There could be insider trading.

Anyway, this is a good news as I think this is the biggest Chinese company accepting bitcoin

Wow, that's Alexa #5, so this is the busiest website accepting bitcoin (although this is only one of its many services. Still a good start)

It is their payment address.

It seems the bitcoin payment is not automated. User have to inform the administrator before they pay and it will be processed manually.

Baidu Jiasule Accepts Bitcoin Payment

15 October 2013

How could we reflect the characteristics of a trendy IT person and a professional webmaster? The answer of course is to own bitcoin! ! !

Bitcoin as an emerging electronic money has already had a large degree of recognition in the world, deep into the daily life. It can be used to buy a cup of coffee, and also be directly converted into real money. In China, bitcoin is still a "fashionable" thing. Today, I have a good news for everyone: from 14 October 2013 onwards, Baidu Jiasule officially support bitcoin payment. Baidu Jashule users can use bitcoin to pay for any Jiasule services. Baidu Jashule as the innovator of the Internet, has become the first cloud services vendor to support bitcoin, giving us a richer payment methods and experience.

In the future, Baidu Jiasule will continue to make more new attempts to bring you more convenient payment methods!

Really?? This seems very half-hearted.

That's reasonable as they are not sure how many users will really pay in bitcoin and that's risky in investing a new payment system. There is no bitpay-equivalent in China. Also, their real intention may just be using this opportunity to advertise their service.

Well, maybe it catches on and they start using bitcoin for other services. Just imagine baidu using bitcoin payments for advertising (like adsense).

They're gonna get their teeth kicked in.

http://blogs.wsj.com/chinarealtime/2009/06/29/china-cracks-down-on-virtual-currency-for-real/

How are they gonna get rid of those coins they take in without breaking the "You can't buy real things with virtual currency" laws?
