Previously, the website already tried to implement crypto payment on their subscriptions. But, their partnership with Coinbase, turned unsuccessful which led the website to stop accepting cryptos.
On this, the CEO- Erik of the company had the following to say-
“As for why we stopped originally – it is because Coinbase deprecated their payment links, and volumes had shrunken a lot anyway after BTC value correction. Anyway, I remain a hopeful believer.”
