Developers win case for MaxCDN to take bitcoin

Online content delivery is all about speed, but for one content delivery network provider, it's also about keeping developers happy by accepting bitcoin.

Online content delivery is all about speed, but for at least one content delivery network (CDN) provider, it's also about keeping developers happy in other ways.

For MaxCDN, which operates a global network of servers to deliver fast content to websites, that means accepting bitcoins ... the currency of choice for some developers.

"We’re supporters of the open source ecosystem, and a large component is being responsive to requests from the community," noted NetDNA developer advocate Justin Dorfman in a blog post earlier this month (MaxCDN is a NetDNA brand). "Developers, a core portion of our customer base, are requesting this payment method and we’re excited to use the emerging 'coin of the realm' for transactions."

Based in Los Angeles, MaxCDN claims to have a customer base of more than 13,000 companies around the world. It's enabling bitcoin transactions by partnering with BitPay.
