Stripe reviews his opinion about the Bitcoin

In 2014, Stripe had declared : “The Bitcoin has a huge potential if it is used as a means of transporting value. It is surprisingly difficult to move money. During the last 20 years, it is on this point that the Internet has not made progress… We can already begin to see the outline of the potential impact of Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies in terms of e-commerce. “Today, it seems, therefore, that Stripe is much less enthusiastic about the usefulness of Bitcoin as the company breaks its links with the most popular crypto-currencies.
