Here’s a little something you might be interested on this very slow Thursday. On social sharing website Reddit.com, a user has uploaded an interesting spreadsheet.
That spreadsheet lists the web’s top one hundred websites, and whether or not they accept bitcoin.
The results, as you would expect, aren’t terribly impressive here, but there are a few bitcoin-friendly services out there. According to the spreadsheet, a total of 7 out of the 100 sites listed accept bitcoin.
They include Wikipedia (an announcement made just yesterday by the Wikimedia Foundation), WordPress.com, and Reddit (no surprise there).
Another four web properties are marked as planned, which likely goes by company executive comments in the past, and should probably not be written in stone.
This year has undoubtedly been an impressive year for bitcoin. Scores of companies like Newegg, Expedia, and more have started to adopt the digital currency.
With that, it will be tremendously interesting to see how this chart compares to a similar version six-to-twelve months down the road, don’t you think?
We’re finally coming to a point in time in which major companies are recognizing that bitcoin has a future.
Take eBay, for example. They are listed on the spreadsheet as planned. Though the company hasn’t formally provided word that they will embrace bitcoin, its CEO, John Donahoe, has hinted at the possibility.
When someone says we’re at an exciting point in the development of bitcoin, they aren’t lying.
