Our Bitcoin Shop and Download Speeds
Covert Japan is ardently committed to supporting Bitcoin as a currency in the form of our site's online store. The only way crypto-currency will ever be considered "currency" and not merely a speculative investment is if vendors remain dedicated to supporting it. As a small vendor, the challenge has always been finding cost-effective ways to support our own site's Bitcoin-based shop as the currency slowly grows in acceptance and utilization.
As our media library grew, so did our storage and bandwidth costs. So we switched to a more cost-effective cloud storage provider. Problem solved, right? Unfortunately, no. Downloads got slow--painfully slow. We apologize for that. We considered dropping Bitcoin support altogether, but really didn't want to.
Fortunately, we recently implemented a simple but effective solution that relieves our own server resources while greatly improving download speed. Fingers crossed! If this solution works well, it spells a brighter future for our Bitcoin shop.
The proof is in the pudding, so I encourage you to login to your accounts and try downloading a purchase. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated, as it will aid future improvement of our shop, site, and the project in general.
Thank you kindly for supporting the Covert Japan project.
