Would love to see an option to pay with BTC or other cryptocurrency, even if this option is restricted to the yearly subscription. Highly recommend BTCPayServer

@sysadmin Nice, looks like it deserves to be an App Request for Cloudron too?
@marcusquinn The two requests can be mutually exclusive, but having both the app & payment method for subscriptions would be very nice.
App requested is already here: https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/3956/btcpayserver/4?_=1619044612903
Not seeing much push for it yet unfortunately.
I believe Tesla is using it with their recent BTC payment method adoption. Atleast, they have sent some significant patches for btcpayserver recently.

@sysadmin Nice, I've experience with BitPay.com and CoinPayments.net but now I'm in-between businesses I don't have an immediate need but always good to know what's best to have on my roadmap when getting back into it.
The whole Monero thing intrigues me too. I've always seen these things as inevitable, but it seems the greatest barrier to entry is still learning time, as no-one needs to learn how to use cash, but not learning how to use crypto makes people far too vulnerable IMHO when losses are so irrecoverable.
@marcusquinn the API is also BitPay compatible btw. I think Coinbase is okay. In an ideal world, a public ledger really is the best. Since you and I both know that's not the world we live in, Monero serves an understandable need currently unsolved by Bitcoin. But that's the beauty of open source, right?
Thankfully, I have heard it is not hard to get a Monero daemon and payment integration running on btcpayserver via a docker flag. Along with an officially supported WordPress plugin, Point-of-Sale, crowdsourcing, shop, and invoice functions for any supported currency, this makes a nice little package for someone to get their community started with cryptocurrency.
Honestly, given that so many money services support purchasing BTC these days with QR-code scanning/sending and whatnot, I think giving Cloudron users the ability to get this going would be great. It may resonate with the kind of people looking for a self-hosted setup.
They have great docs
Well-funded dev team
And a demo running for anyone wanting to check it out

@girish Can we move this to Wishlist and rename the Post "BTCPay Server for accepting Bitcoin payments" please?

Hey there! It's cool to see you're interested in using cryptocurrency as a payment option. I agree that it would be great to have more options beyond traditional payment methods.
This is already on the wishlist here
