BitMate Author Donations

Description

BitMate Author Donations is a WordPress plugin for authors on WordPress powered sites to accept cryptocurrency donations. It can automatically add a cryptocurrency donation box below all posts, or can be manually controlled via the built in shortcode [bitmate-author-donate] and/or widgets for sidebars and visual page builders.

Here are a few of the special features you might not notice at first:

  • Can be used in “Maximalist” Bitcoin only mode with classic styles or will adapt to a modern multi-currency display when you add other currencies.
  • Sets Bitcoin label & message when using compatible installed wallets.
  • Makes use of compatible URI formats where possible, for example BIP 21 for Bitcoin.
  • Uses local and self-hosted fonts to avoid calling other servers.
  • Works without Javascript enabled – although offers optimisations when it is!
  • Makes use of open-source self-hosted QR code generator for increase privacy.

Coming Soon:

  • International translation hooks
