Description

I don't know how the LibO bitcoin donations work, but if a single wallet address is used, this should be an easy method:

https://info.shapeshift.io/tools/shifty-button

Allow your business's website that accepts Bitcoin payments or deposits
to accept blockchain assets automatically with the Shifty Button.

The Shifty Button is for website owners that want to easily accept blockchain assets on their site.

If you run a business website that accepts Bitcoin payments or deposits, you can place the Shifty Button HTML code into any page to enable it to accept alternative blockchain assets automatically. Your users can then deposit leading assets like Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ether and more and they'll be auto-converted into Bitcoin for you. Accept blockchain assets the easy way with the Shifty Button.


If there is not a single wallet used, it might be too much work to implement and this idea can be closed.

Please close this as we can't do anything to integrate this with BitPay.

Why not keep it open to revisit in the future?
Not saying we can't fix this, just saying it's unlikely to have a high
prio now :-)

Well I explained in my email :)

I can recap:
- if we continue with BitPay, there is no other solution than to point people at a multi-step tutorial to manually juggle the funds between ShapeShift and BitPay (a hassle). Any altcoin user can already do these acrobatics if they want.
- we can switch from BitPay to CoinGate and get ShapeShift integration without any effort

Both points mean that this ticket does not need to exist.
