Cryptocurrencies have garnered much attention recently off of Bitcoin’s meteoric rise in value — currently around $15,000. The Chicago Board Options Exchange has even launched futures contracts on Bitcoin for investors to bet on the currency’s rise and fall. While Bitcoin’s volatility won’t necessarily attract users, cryptocurrencies offer low-cost peer-to-peer aspects that should be appealing to both merchants and consumers.
For WordPress merchants, there are plugins available to add cryptocurrency features to a site. Create a cryptocurrency calculator, add real-time rate charts, determine transaction totals, and more.
