Digital payment service Stripe has officially announced support for Bitcoin, allowing all merchants using its service to accept payments in the cryptocurrency.

The company began testing Bitcoin integration last March with a private beta spanning 60 countries, and completed its trial in December. Stripe will charge 0.5 percent per transaction made with Bitcoin.

Stripe Bitcoin checkout

Stripe Checkout users can add Bitcoin as a payment option with just a single new line of code. You can find instructions on enabling it on the company’s site.
