ROOT Data Center Becomes First Canadian Colocation Data Center to Accept Bitcoin

root-logo2xROOT Data Center is pleased to announce that they are the first Canadian Data Center to accept Bitcoin as a payment method. Bitcoin is the world’s leading cryptocurrency payment system, that’s secure and utilizes a peer to peer network.

The new payment policy took effect August 31st, 2014. Any ROOT Data Center clients can now make their monthly service payments in Bitcoin. “We believe in the importance of supporting all our clients in their business growth. Accepting Bitcoin is definitely a way that we can demonstrate our support to Bitcoin clients from Montreal and around the world. We feel strongly that Bitcoin will play an important role in how we conduct local and international trade today, but also in the foreseeable future” said CEO Jason van Gaal.

ROOT Data Center’s market position as a world class colocation provider without the world class price has been attracting lots of attention from Bitcoin miners. The data centers ability to affordably cool over 30kW/rack has made it possible for high density Bitcoin clients to reduce their operating costs by over 30% to 50%.

  1. Gotta love NH, especially the white mountains. Been going up since about 1985. I think we’ve hit most of the easy to medium hikes/climbs from west rattlesnake up to the Balsoms area. Also did a couple of more difficult terrains, but never more than a days worth of hiking. I’ve gone through one Shepard/husky mix, and two red dobies along with my daughters pooch now days. We’ve hit some of the area that you have discussed here and recognize the views.
    We lived in NJ and had a ski house in Lincoln and would come up about five times a year. Unfortunately we only make it up about once a year now. I did break my son and daughter in though, just as my father in law broke me in to the White Mountains. My wife and I are still in good shape and enjoy the hiking when we get to visit.
    You did a very nice job with your article, good luck to you and thank you for bringing back awesome memories. BTW….Jack looks like my daughters pooch…Onyx.
