Large darknet market stopped accepting payments in BTC

by in Cryptocurrency News


The darknet marketplace White House Market stopped supporting the leading cryptocurrency and began to accept payments only in Monero (XMR).

The reason for the decision was "unexpected blocking of access from the Tor network." It was influenced by a change in the API of the MorphToken exchanger, which is used by the darknet marketplace.

“The workaround helped with the bitcoin to XMR conversion. These steps have caused us concern, we have decided to support only Monero, as planned," said in the message.
