Bitcoin may be in a bit of a rough spot at the moment but that doesn’t mean companies have stopped adopting it. Stripe is the latest company to add support for the popular cryptocurrency and will charge a 0.5% fee for every transaction made through its digital payments service using Bitcoin.
Digital payment service Stripe has officially announced support for Bitcoin, allowing all merchants using its service to accept payments in the cryptocurrency. The company began testing Bitcoin integration last March with a private beta spanning 60 countries, and completed its trial in December. Stripe will charge 0.5 percent per transaction made with Bitcoin. Stripe Checkout users can add Bitcoin as a payment option with just a single new line of code. You can find instructions on enabling it on the company’s site.
