STEEM / Steem Dollar Integration SUCCESS! (Adoption News!)

in steem •  3 years ago  (edited)

We're finally on!

Around 35 minutes prior to submitting this post I'd received word from the administrator that both STEEM and SBD are now fully integrated on their well known payment gateway! This is a MASSIVE step towards further adoption and acceptance of our currency, community and network on a global scale.

For those unaware of what is... It's a payment processing gateway currently run on over 65,000 stores across the internet. They allow their users to accept over 50 different types of popular crypto currency. Now with SBD as well as STEEM!

All it Takes is ONE Person To Change The Game

The task of raising funds, contacting and gathering the information required by them to get STEEM / SBD listed on their service was taken upon myself roughly a month ago and was the initial goal I had set out for myself when I'd begun dreaming of becoming a STEEM witness. While admittedly it did take longer than expected I'm extremely excited to report this news and to have had this opportunity to help the STEEM network grow as an entity as it's help me grow as a person. I've got plenty more great things planned in the future to help our network grow. This is just the beginning.

Rise to the Challenge

While hanging out on SteemSpeak Radio run by @ fyrstikken during an interview there when the CEO of Steemit inc. @ned was on I got a chance to ask him what he was looking for in witnesses supported by the company, his response summed up was something along the lines of "We're looking for the movers and shakers, people bringing value and helping STEEM grow". I can not think of anything better than this news of easy acceptance of SBD and STEEM on 100,000's of thousands of current and future web stores to be anything more than the embodiment of his response.

To @dantheman @ned @roadscape and any other of the STEEM architects and visionaries:

Thanks for making STEEM & the world a better place.

Please consider a witness vote for klye - STEEM is a full time job for me, it's success ours.

Go Set Up a STEEM / SBD Store Today!

It's encouraged that EVERYONE wishing to sell goods or services go out and start a store accepting STEEM and SBD as payment methods. Anyone currently running a Wordpress / Woocommerced based site should also consider adding the Payment Gateway Plugin to their site as well in order to reap the benefits of being able to accept multiple types of crypto currency on their websites.

Technical Data

As detailed above it will take 30 confirms or blocks after your SBD or STEEM are transferred before Coinpayments will consider the transaction complete. With 3 second block times that means the average transaction will confirm in only 1 and a half minutes... WOW. Compared to the average 10 minutes plus block times of Bitcoin this is amazing fast and not to mention secure. I'll write a post some time tommorow outlining how to add to your Wordpress powered site to allow you to accept Steem Dollars / STEEM for any good or service you can imagine!

Tested and it is working! :) Thanks a lot . Now accepting Bitcoins, Steems and Stemm$ in my small shop, need to change the banner. You can see it here in action (it is in spanish but there is a translate button at the top)


Glad to see my efforts being implemented so fast. :D

Was waiting this since some time now. And it means a lot for the Steemit social network, the currencies and for the community as well... They are a lot of merchants in Coinpayments! :)

Hmm.. but you have had mine since two weeks ago! See?.. one of the firsts..

Not sure if I'd formally thanked you for it though. Perhaps I had.
Either way highly appreciated. <3

I have been converting my web sites to accept Steem$ already for a couple weeks as well as over 20 different items on PeerHub, but this makes it even easier!
Congratulations to you and to all the Steemit Community for this major upgrade!
Steem ON!
