Although I’m currently inactive as a seller for personal reasons, I would love the possibility to buy gigs with bitcoin cash or to withdraw earnings in bitcoin cash. Ok, withdrawing in bitcoin cash might be a bit too much, but being able to pay with it would be absolutely awesome!
I remember the times when fiverr was accepting bitcoin legacy, some of my biggest buyers were bitcoin miners. My guess is that bitcoin legacy payments were disabled because of high fees and slow transactions. But none of these is an issue anymore with bitcoin cash (fast transaction and 0 fees), which is also backed by an enthusiast bitcoin community that cares about adoption and is willing to spend it (contrary to bitcoin legacy users who “hodl”).
Recently, Coinbase added the pairs BTC/BCH and BCH/EUR. This means that users stuck with bitcoins (because of high fees and slow transactions) can now convert their coins into spendable bitcoin cash and use it to buy stuff online. In December, Bitpay too announced that they will add bch payments for their merchants in early 2018.
The market here is huge, bitcoin cash’s distribution is basically the same as that of bitcoin legacy because every person that was holding bitcoin legacy in August 2017, when the fork happened, was credited the same amount of bitcoin cash. The only difference is that bitcoin cash can be spent, while bitcoin legacy is impossible to spend.
When fiverr adds bch I am sure that the buzz will be tremendous and tens of thousands of bitcoin cash enthusiasts will flock the site. I’m sure they will buy A LOT of extras and PRO gigs as well.
Are there any plans to do this in the near future?
