On May 24, an online payment processing platform, Stripe in collaboration with OpenNode announced that it is set to give access to Bitcoin (BTC) payments after suspending support for four years.

The crypto start-up, OpenNode, has partnered with Stripe to permit its users to accept Bitcoin payments through a new application.
