We are a bit cautious on cryptocurrencies. Not only does their volatility generate a lot of noise and confusion but also the hype behind them feels not honourable.
However, there is value in private transactions. Historically, this could only be done with cash, yet anonymous cryptocurrencies enable this kind of privacy online as well.
Mataroa is a privacy-aware blogging engine and it would be a shame to not accept some kind of anonymous cryptocurrency to enable higher quality privacy for users. Thus, after a request of a new user, we now support Monero as payment for our Premium Plan.
The implementation is currently rudimentary, thus to pay using Monero one needs to contact email@example.com for Monero payments to be enabled for their account.
