The Story

App.net frequently gets requests to add Bitcoin as a payment option for our premium-tier accounts. We were open to the idea, but were concerned that very few people would actually choose to use Bitcoin as a payment mechanism. Rather than take a guess about whether it would be worth supporting Bitcoin or not, we decided to run a simple test. We launched a crowdfunding campaign and came up with 10 BTC as a minimum amount of revenue we would want to see in order to permanently support Bitcoin as a payment option.
