Cookie company바카라사이트 Yandex said Thursday that it might start processing payments for Bitcoin through the company’s online portal, with limited use for credit cards.
The move follows a report, first reported by The Wall Street Journal last month, that the e-commerce platform is working to make some of its users pay using Bitcoin. The Wall Street Journal reported that a payment processor said it could accept bitcoin and credit card payment if they wanted.

Bitcoin was launched in 2009 to facilitate peer-to-peer payments between anonymous individuals without the need for banks or financial institutions, as well as online retailers. The currency, as its name suggests, allows for anonymous transfers among people who have similar attributes.
The move comes as e-commerce giants like Amazon, eBay and PayPal were considering taking on the likes of Bitcoin as a store of value, even though they did not explicitly accept payment for goods an우리카지노d services. PayPal CEO Richard Smith said last month that the company is exploring other options for accepting bitcoin and that he will reveal his plans in the coming weeks.
“Some of you may have read about Yandex today.

But just how safe is this new technology? How reliable will this new method of payment be?”
For now, though, it’s the same old, same old for online payments: a centralized online service for making money.
