The news of the day is Stripe ending Bitcoin support.
Stripe provided Bitcoin as a payment option since mid-2014.
Bitcoin payments will not be accepted after April 23, 2018.
This is bad news for the Bitcoin ecosystem, but it’s a sound decision from Stripe.
You can read the official announcement here.
What it all means for WP Full Stripe:
- If you don’t accept Bitcoin payments then you don’t have to do anything.
- We are going to release an update to WP Full Stripe on April 20, 2018.
The update will remove Bitcoin functionality from the plugin.
- Stripe is going to start blocking Bitcoin payments on April 23, 2018.
If you don’t remove your Bitcoin payment forms then Bitcoin payments will fail for your customers.
