Introducing crypto in the world of WordPress is like opening the door to a million possibilities. Allowing viewer and audiences to access exclusive content by crypto payments will have a dual benefit. Firstly, it would increase the use of digital tokens, which would, in turn, bring solidity to crypto platforms. Secondly, it will give audiences who aren’t familiar with the world of digital currencies a chance to have a glimpse of it and would allow crypto companies to showcase their potential and other benefits.
Also, making crypto payments would bring peace of mind to viewers, simply because they won’t have to enter credit or debit card details on the website. They just to scan a QR code on the webpage, or make the payment via their crypto wallets. In its Reddit post, Nano stated,
Accept Nano as payment to view content on your WordPress site. You can replace ads on your site by offering premium paid content. Micro-transactions for some content, larger amounts for more substantial content. You decide.
As predicted by numerous famous tech personalities, including the legendary Elon Musk, cryptocurrencies are the future of the global economy and monetary systems. Therefore, the integration with WordPress was but accepted. In fact, the world is moving towards the integration of the entire digital space. Right from payment platforms like PayPal and VISA, to WordPress, and various video streaming services, use of electronic money is rising, and at a fast pace too.
By accepting Nano Coin on their WordPress, creators will be able to offer exclusive content like premium posts/pages, extended content to general posts, and also images without watermarks. What is the most encouraging part is that popular websites like the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, BBC America, TechCrunch, etc. all based on WordPress, which shows the how expansive the scope for Nano is.
