“Our partnership with Fiverr brings the community another step closer to broad consumer adoption of Bitcoin. This further validates that cryptocurrencies are a trusted, widely accepted form of payment,” said Adam White, Director of Business Development at Coinbase.

Fiverr joins other established internet firms like TigerDirect.com, Zynga, and Porn.com, who have seen relatively ample success since supporting the cryptocurrency.

“Fiverr is one of the leading disruptors of the Gig Economy. Our community is passionate about innovation and creativity and Bitcoin represents this spirit of innovation in the payment space. It is only natural that Fiverr will be in the forefront of marketplaces embracing this new digital currency and security standards,” Added Fiverr CEO, Micha Kaufman.

Our colleagues at Digital Currency Magnates had the chance to speak with Micha Kaufman on the newly supported currency. The interview can be seen here.
