I previouisly and again just now contacted Linode via OFTC #Linode and also a support request. Each time the response has been the same.
Unfortunately, we do not currently have any plans to accept bitcoin payments. At this time we are not planning on or discussing accepting bitcoin payments in the future.
I would like to see Linode accept bitcoin payments and then I would definitely and easily be more capable of ordering more vps environment capacity from them for existing and future projects.
What seems likely to convince Linode to accept bitcoin payments?
