The SPREEBIE BARTER plugin is a widget that enables easy and fast Ethereum payments on any WordPress website via Metamask.
Spreebie Barter can be installed very easily on any modern WordPress installation (4.1 upwards). It’s goal is to be the EASIEST payment and donation system in the world. Not only is it easy to setup and use, it rides on the wave of the tremendously popular Ethereum platform that not only offers smart contracts but the amazing Web3 library upon which amazing utilities like Metamask are built.
Simply install the plugin and drag the widget to your desired position; then that’s that – you now have Ethereum payments and donations on your site.
Online payments have been one of the major applications of the web since the rise of usage of the internet by the general public in the early 1990s – earlier implementations were naturally a lot cruder. Later on, superior payment systems like PayPal and Stripe came along and offered developers ways to facilitate payments.
Another huge wave followed after that – cryptocurrency. Many people had been trying to create popular digital currencies for years – most notably was Nick Szabo with his early efforts in the 1990s. In 2009, blockchain-based currencies were created and later Ethereum, which comes out of the box with smart contracts, was created. Not only is the Ethereum platform advanced, it is also versatile in that it comes with Web3 that can be injected into a web application’s instance to facilitate Ethereum transactions.
WordPress is now running on 30% of all websites – in a way, it has become a kind of web operating system. This means that it has become unavoidable and thinking about creating new products and dedicated implementations of existing products for WordPress is imperative.
