Stripe makes its bitcoin pilot available to all US users

After nearly a year of testing bitcoin payments with select customers, Stripe is making the cryptocurrency an option for all of its customers – of at least those with a U.S. bank account. Stripe provides the payment processing for sharing economy apps, online retailers and mobile developers, and they will now be able to add bitcoin to the payment choices on their websites and in their apps with a line of code. Stripe converts all bitcoin transactions into U.S. currency, and it charges a 0.5 percent fee for each transaction.
