Bitcoin wallet service Coinbase released a new Payment Page feature today that reserves a custom URL for users to receive Bitcoin payments and donations.

If you have a Coinbase account already, you can head to the settings section of the site to reserve your username. Your payment page will then show up at coinbase.com/yourname.

To mark the launch of the new pages, Coinbase is partnering with Nas, Marc Andreessen and Code.org to match donations (up to $50,000) for their payment pages. Nas is raising money for Watsi.org, while Andreessen is directing donations to social innovation venture fund SV2.
