         TorrentLeech.org Now Accepting Bitcoins

TorrentLeech.org, a torrent tracking service with a massive 500k userbase, is now accepting and even encouraging Bitcoins as donations and in exchange for VIP accounts.

TorrentLeech believes that “Bitcoin payments safeguard your privacy and protect your anonymity,” and are “strong believers of the Bitcoin.” For these reasons, they are offering 1-3 months of extra VIP subscription for each donation via Bitcoin, depending on the amount donated.

TorrentLeech has even gone so far as to create their own wiki page1to aid users in acquiring and using Bitcoins.

With the encouragement for users to use Bitcoin, and a userbase half the size of the estimated one million people using Bitcoin, this new donation policy could very well result in a large number of new Bitcoin users over the coming months.
