- White House Market stopped accepting Bitcoin payments
- Monero becomes the website’s only accepted cryptocurrency
- Morphtoken decides to block access from Tor exit nodes
White House Market pulled out its support for Bitcoin payments. The famous darknet marketplace will now recognize Monero payments as its solely accepted digital currency.
The darknet giant uses Morphtoken as its third-party exchange API. The decision to use Monero payments alone was due to Morphtoken’s decision to suddenly block access from Tor exit nodes. The website confirmed the move on the payment section of its onion website.
The platform hoped to make this shift eventually. They only planned to allow Bitcoin payments for a short time, until users switched to Monero (XMR). Seeing as that time has come, they made their final shift to XMR payments alone.
White House Market is a fairly new website. Built from scratch, the secure darknet market provides a privacy-centric space. Moreover, it is enforced with pretty good privacy (pgp) terms.
The platform covers a secure and cryptic network of online sales. They mostly indulge in selling high-end clothing items. Users on the website can buy and sell items using XRM.
Arriving in 2014, Monero was an altcoin that provided a very unique property — anonymity. Above all, it provides privacy to its users and is highly secure. This makes it the perfect payment option for a darknet space such as White House Market.
