Stripe offers bitcoin payments through a single line of code

20 February 2015  |  9511 views  |  0 Bitcoin

Digital payments upstart Stripe has added support for bitcoin, enabling merchants to accept the crypto-currency through just a single line of code.

The company began work on a bitcoin pilot last March, completing its trial in December. It promises a hassle-free way for merchants to accept bitcoin, either through an API or via the firm's online checkout coding.

Stripe says it will charge 0.5% for each successful transaction, with no other fees.

It's not the first time the company has dabbled in the crypto-currency market. In August last year Stripe invested $3 million in Stellar, a decentralised payment network and digital currency startup established by Mt. Gox and Ripple founder Jed McCaleb.
