Bitcoin is by far not the best payment method.

In fact, it is by far the most controversial payment method as Bitcoin has been a focal point of industry discussion for a few years now.

Why do you think it has the characteristics of currently being the best?

It's a good payment method but not the best, at least standing at the position of providers, it's not the best.

Almost no one uses bitcoin to pay for any services. Paypal and credit cards are the most popular

I believe it attracts a lot of shady clients. We don't use it and do not plan on using it either.

Well, that seems to be a common misconception as quite a few providers do currently accept BitCoin. I ran a thread about this in another forum recently and was surprised at just how many providers not only accept BitCoin, but say it works better for them than credit cards.

the hosts i found that accept bitcoin seem to be offshore hosts, so they dont care who or what they host.

We offer bitcoin, purely because we can.

I've had few customers use it, but those who have, have behaved themselves.

It's far from the best right now, but worth having as an option.

right now its used most. As its fast and cheap most of the transactions are done using bitcoin currency now. Its not the Best, still people are comfortable with paypal and credit card payment methods.

As I know that Vultr VPS provider are now accepting Bitcoin in their payment system. You can buy VPS at them and pay via bitcoin.

Good luck to you,

Maybe the bitcoin customers behave themselves as they have no recourse should they get themselves suspended.

Bitcoin payments are most often associated with anonymity and privacy. And where is anonymity in buying hosting services then most likely there is something fishy.
Bitcoin payments are one of the best payment method for spammers and other abusers. However it is by far not the best payment method for providers.
