HEADS UP: Potential Bitcoin problems starting August 1st

Hi Tarsnap users,

If you use Bitcoin to pay for Tarsnap, you may wish to add more money to
your account before August 1st.

Some changes to the Bitcoin processing service Tarsnap uses (Stripe) have
created a possibility that Tarsnap will be unable to take Bitcoin payments
starting on August 1st.  Stripe is working to resolve this problem (the
issue arises because Tarsnap is not based in the USA) but at present it is
not certain if or when this will be fixed.
