This is the type of feature request that we're interested to see how many folks want it, and how it provides specific value to both our users as well as the end donor.
Perhaps it's because I, your humble issue-escalator, do not fully understand the ins and outs of cryptocurrency in general, beyond a basic understand of the concept, but the way this issue will move from being feature request to reality is with the answers to these sorts of questions:
- How would a cryptocurrency add-on provide specific benefit for organizations and their donors that does not exist already?
- What specifically would the add-on look like? Which coins would it support? How would users transact, and what fees are involved?
- What payment gateways are involved, and what does the fee structure look like? (GiveWP doesn't process the actual payments, we leave that to the gateways. It sounds like the proposal here is to take out the middle-person, and that opens up a PCI compliance can of worms.)
How do we develop for crypto but avoid that pitfall?
We're open to ideas, but are not sold internally on enough of the specifics to move forward with crypto. Vote and comment here to change our minds!
