If you have seen the news recently you are probably aware of the huge interest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and even Dogecoin. Much of the recent cryptocurrency Bull Market can be directly related to the online antics of Elon Musk who has been dropping hints for months in regards to Bitcoin and Dogecoin in particular.

Cryptocurrency goes mainstream

At about 11pm AEST last night, Tesla confirmed they are investing $1.5 Billion USD into Bitcoin and would soon be accepting it as payment with a Sec filing stating:

As part of the policy, which was duly approved by the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors, we may invest a portion of such cash in certain alternative reserve assets including digital assets, gold bullion, gold exchange-traded funds and other assets as specified in the future. Thereafter, we invested an aggregate $1.50 billion in bitcoin under this policy and may acquire and hold digital assets from time to time or long-term. Moreover, we expect to begin accepting bitcoin as a form of payment for our products in the near future, subject to applicable laws and initially on a limited basis, which we may or may not liquidate upon receipt.

This is all just great, but how do I accept this Cryptocurrency with my online shop? I am glad you asked. The benefits with using a open platform means there is no shortage of solutions to problems other eCommerce platforms may struggle with. If you have a WooCommerce Store, or even a simple one page product, the options to accept cryptocurrencies are endless.
