It's All About the Bitcoins
Happy New Year! Did you think maybe in 2014 Internet people would cut the shit and stop hurtling bags of money into a funeral pyre of pretend pop culture currencies like dogecoin? Too bad! Coinye West is a thing now.

WordPress.com, which hosts close to 58 million blogs across the world, announced last night that it will now accept payments for upgrades via Bitcoin, the peer-to-peer digital currency.
