Fintech firm Stripe along with bitcoin (BTC) payments infrastructure platform OpenNode are joining forces to allow Stripe’s merchant customers to instantly convert all or portions of incoming payments to bitcoin via the OpenNode app.

  • "The app gives businesses a simple and secure way to convert incoming payments to Bitcoin in real time, automatically or on demand,” Josh Held, OpenNode’s head of strategy, said in a statement on Tuesday.
  • The new app will debut alongside the Stripe App Marketplace in a few weeks, OpenNode said.
  • In February, OpenNode closed a $20 million Series A funding round led by U.K. firm Kingsway at a $220 million valuation to fuel its global expansion.
