A Means for IOTA’s Mainstream Adoption
This new development gained traction from various quarters of the crypto community. It also caught the attention of the independent crypto rater, Weiss Crypto.
According to Weiss Crypto, the IOTA payment plugin was launched on a viable content management platform, considering the number of websites that currently run on WordPress.
The crypto rater pointed out that the new plugin would increase the accessibility of IOTA, which will enhance the mainstream adoption of the leading distributed ledger platform.
Weiss Crypto tweeted, “Developers from IOTA community have released plugin that allows all WordPress sites to accept IOTA in a matter of clicks. WordPress is one of the world’s most popular content management platforms, and this could increase accessibility and mainstream adoption for IOTA.”

According to the developer, the “Pay with IOTA” plugin is currently available on the official WordPress website. The plugin leverages the IOTA Button function, an out-of-the-box open-source instrument for retail payments on IOTA.
The WordPress plugin can be installed with only four inputs:
- The Firefly address of the recipient.
- The predetermined payment total.
- The currency (provided for convenient calculations, all payments are in IOTA tokens).
- The name of the user or his/her website.
The “Pay with IOTA” plugin can also be used for crypto donations and for different kinds of e-commerce instruments.
