Another user pointed out that the new version of Streamlabs – popular software used for recommendations, – now also not allows the possibility of crypto payments.
Some customers were outraged by such changes, so they decided to cancel their subscriptions and sent letters to the company’s administration with requests to return the cryptocurrency to the list of payment methods..
Twitch has been accepting bitcoin since 2016 using the Coinbase payment gateway. Platform representatives have not yet commented on the changes.
The opposite policy hosted by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, who recently reported plans to hire a new team and developers to pay in bitcoins.
