Dish Network to Accept Bitcoin

Most of Dish Network’s 14 million subscribers are probably not Bitcoin users. But that will not stop the company from accepting payments in the virtual currency later this year.

Dish announced on Thursday that customers would be able to make manual payments in Bitcoin beginning in the third quarter.

The most heart warming part of this article is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as people ask the right questions and become intrigued with this currency:

Namecoin

Namecoin has been added to the list of valid coins that you can purchase on the site.

If you’ve ever seen a website’s domain sized by the DHS or your own domain name shut down for hours because one angry person wrote an e-mail and the registrar’s support handled it unprofessionally, you should understand the significance of a system like Namecoin.

Here’s a video about Namecoin:

The market price of a Namecoin is around $2.6 USD at the moment (based on BTC-e).

DNS problem

Our DNS provider NamesCo seems to be down, along with their DNS servers. Unfortunately we also cannot change the DNS server to our own until they resolve the issue.

As soon as they’re back, we’ll be moving the DNS service to our own servers and complementing them with ClouDNS for extra reliability.

If you’re in a hurry, you can temporarily add BitBargain to your hosts file as such:

UPDATE: names.co.uk came back - the DNS update request has been sent.

Paym - Mobile Payment

We’ve added Paym as a payment option.

It is currently experimental. We’ve heard reports of design problems in the system (for example someone using Pingit has no choice in selecting the payment type, as Paym is built in - so sending someone funds who has both Pingit and Paym could lead to problems).

More information about Paym:

At the time of writing this, no sellers are offering Paym, but hopefully that will change in a few hours or days.
