Updated API Integration Will Bring Crypto Payments Back To Reddit
CTO of Reddit Chris Slowe told Cheddar the future’s looking bright for crypto payments returning to Reddit. The Bitcoin ban on the site in late March was due to Coinbase’s migration to a new platform, and a lack of time for Reddit to update their API integration to support it.

Slowe said on Cheddar: “Once the redesign finishes landing and we’re actually able to address it again, I think we’ll actually see crypto payments come back.”
In addition to Bitcoin’s return, the site is looking to support Ethereum and Litecoin.
There is no set date for this update, but Reddit is continuously developing and optimistic about the future crypto payments on the site.
