Coinbase Commerce takes BTC, LTC, ETH to over 2.7m online stores

According to a recent tweet by Kevin Rooke, Coinbase Consumer has expanded its reach to 2.7 million online stores and now allows all of them to accept BTC, BCH, LTC, and ETH with Coinbase Commerce integrations. Rooke also noted that the peer-to-peer nature of these plugins should be seen as a positive, as internet payments should not be routed through an intermediary, which only can slow down and make payment processing more costly to merchants and consumers alike. While these integrations may have the potential to reach millions of stores and tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of consumers, according to Coinbase, only “2,000+” digital-centric merchants have begun to accept cryptocurrency.
