Yup, that would bring faster clearing times and filter the fake buyers. Deposited, escrowed, delivered, realeased.

When Fiverr first started they did accept cryptocurrency, but it did not work out well so they dropped it.

I am pretty sure they will not accept crypto for many reasons. The main one is Crypto is highly volatile. Valve for example accepted crypto for a while, then they removed it because it was super volatile. So I can’t see them accepting it here.

A stable crypto like Tether should work. Those who don’t like crypto, use fiat.

Yes exactly and those using crypto will benefit from it when it goes high in value

You do realize bitcoin went from 40k to 30k in less than a day. That’s true volatility. Every currency can be volatile, but not like crypto…

Tether is 1 to 1, not all crypto is bitcoin.
But with a crypto coin you won’t deal with scammers, it’s quite an issue on freelancing platforms. Just a thought.

That’s an interesting thought.

I just received my first payment in a cryptocurrency this morning at a non-Fiverr platform I’ve been on for years.

I was just thinking that it would be cool if Fiverr were to do the same.

Since it is a publicly traded company, why not create a Fiverr cryptocurrency that could only be used here by Buyers for Sellers?

It could be a good idea and, has already been noted, would likely clamp down on fraud.

That the idea :bulb: fiverr will make more money apart from there 20% gain they get from finished transaction and this will make them invest more in reaching out to new buyers making we sallers have more work on deck , this thing called crypto is really given a sign that is hear to stay and if you get involve in it as quick as possible you gain more before it saturate

That why they are others ways which you have been using before , every one will choose which way he or she want to be paid in

People have been asking about this for 3+ years on here it seems, but nothing ever materialised. I said this recently elsewhere:

The only way it can happen soon is if PayPal, which Fiverr is partnered with, does something to alleviate the expense load. Otherwise it’s going to take time or take off very slowly.
