The US crypto-exchange Coinbase has released a new plugin. With this plugin, an add-on module, millions of websites can accept large cryptocurrencies. These include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.
The plugin is designed to work with WooCommerce. WooCommerce is a platform based on open source software. These currently use more than 2.2 million WordPress sites. This follows from the information on the website Barn2Media.
Coinbase announced the new plugin in a blog post. The entry also shows that the plugin is already available on GitHub.
The blog entry states:
“WooCommerce is one of the most popular online trading platforms on the Internet. For all users of WooCommerce it is now easier than ever to accept crypto currencies as a means of payment. The widely used plugin is already being used in more than 28 percent of all online stores. Now all of these stores also have the ability to accept payments in cryptocurrencies from customers around the world. These new access options will lead to a wider dissemination. This brings us closer to the ultimate goal of an open financial system. “
In terms of details, Coinbase said they had recently added features. It's about the ability to send Bitcoin and Litecoin directly from Coinbase Commerce. We're currently developing the same function for Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash.
In addition, Coinbase announced that they have introduced a new payment button named “React”. The inclusion of this button is a quick and easy way to accept cryptocurrencies. It can be used for all fields of application, be it for donations for an open-source project or for the sale of tickets for an event. By using “React”, users could include a Coinbase Commerce cashier function.
In order to increase the adoption of cryptocurrencies it is important that these are accessible, Coinbase said. That's why they added the “Python” program library for the Coinbase Commerce programming interface (API). Many more will follow this library. In addition, they are developing more customer libraries for Node.js, Ruby and PHP.Notably, Coinbase writes that Coinbase Commerce handles all payments through a true peer-to-peer system. So as soon as a customer sends a payment from his crypto currency wallet, this would go directly to the dealer. This receives it on the controlled by him crypto currency address. At the same time, the transaction will be processed on the respective blockchain. This offers the advantage that traders never pay any transaction fees and always have full control over their funds.
In conclusion, Coinbase said that this is only the beginning of efforts to make cryptocurrencies a simple mainstream payment option.
