Starting today, you can purchase reddit gol in two new ways: Bitcoin and Credit Card.
Previously, reddit users who wanted to upgrade could only used PayPal or Google Wallet.
"We're using Coinbase as our bitcoin payment processor and Stripe for credit cards. Right now we're only accepting credit card payments from the US and Canada, but bitcoin payments can be made from anywhere in the world. Buy your loved ones reddit gold for Valentine's Day--it's a gift sure to warm their hearts," says Brian Simpson on the reddit blog.
Why buy reddit gold? Well, apart from special features like the ability to customize r/all, comment highlighting, saved comments, and the choice to turn off ads, buying reddit gold can help support the site.
And there's always that ultra-secret super swanky lounge people keep talking about, but I've never seen it. It's kind of like the reddit version of the pool on the roof of your high school.
Or, if you're cheap, you could always wait for that perfect moment to deliver a wonderful comment somewhere on the site and hope some generous soul buys it for you.
Reddit gold is $3.99 a month or $29.99 a year.
