Stripe, the fintech giant, continues to inch its way back into the cryptocurrency market, reports TechCrunch. The company has announced that it would let customers accept cryptocurrency payments, starting with just one currency in particular, USDC stablecoins, initially only on Solana, Ethereum and Polygon. This will be the first time that Stripe has taken crypto payments since 2018, when it dropped support for Bitcoin due to it being too unstable.
