Cryptocurrency is the new option at Flattr, the Swedish startup that helps you manage your donations through some social media like Instagram or YouTube. The company has announced they now have partial support for Bitcoin.
This means users can fund their accounts with the virtual currency and distribute the digital coins. In a near future, Flattr, created in 2010, is also considering adding the option to withdraw the donations in Bitcoins too. However, first, they want to attract Bitcoin users.
The Bitcoin payments will be handled by the Danish company BIPS, located in Copenhagen. To fund your account with cryptocurrency, you just need to go to the ‘Add funds’ page of Flattr and choose Bitcoin. Easy as that!
Through Flattr you can support several creators in websites and networks like YouTube, Instagram, Soundcloud, Flickr or Vimeo, among others.
