Disclosure: I'm not in any way affiliated with Wuala beyond being a happy customer.

Just wanted to remind everyone that Wuala still offers Bitcoin as a payment option: http://www.wuala.com/en/bitcoin

In fact, BTC prices are 50-75% below what USD customers pay, and you get far more granularity (you can buy 8 GB for 1 year for 0.8 BTC, 33 GB for 1 year for 3.3 BTC, etc). Also, just today their Android app just got a lot better with in-app file editing.

Just thought one of the largest businesses to have accepted Bitcoin to date needs some love.

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.

I currently use Dropbox; would migrate to this service due to BTC acceptance! How does it compare to Dropbox do you know?

The main plus with Wuala is that it encrypts everything on your hard drive, so your data is safer. Another is that you do not have to have a special "Dropbox" folder where you store everything you want to sync or hack your way around the issue with symbolic links - you can just sync whatever folders you want. The only issue with Wuala that I still have is that the Android app doesn't offer file uploading from your phone, although as of today it does allow opening files from within the app and editing them.

Also, the prices.

Dropbox: 2 GB free, $120/year for 50 GB, $240/year for 100 GB
Wuala: 2 GB free, $25/year for 10 GB, $51/year for 25 GB, $77/year for 50 GB, $129/year for 100 GB
Wuala bitcoin: 2 GB free, $4.4/year for 10 GB, $12.7/year for 25 GB, $26.4/year for 50 GB, $54/year for 100 GB (with fluid granularity in between, it's 0.1 BTC ($0.55 USD as of the time of this writing) per additional GB per year)

Hope that helps!

I would be using anything other than Dropbox. the only reason I don't is because I have 6.2GB on my DB for free and that's all I need right now.
Problem is I can only get 2GB for free at Wuala, Ubuntu One etc..

umm.. do a google search for free waula promo codes.. I bumped mine by like 10-20gig for free (don't remember). I also support them by being a paying user though. Thier client needs some work but this is the kind of company that I would reward.
