"You will work across everything from web/mobile UIs to backend, and payments and identity systems. Many businesses and users already rely on and trust in Stripe. This gives us a massive opportunity to be at the forefront of a new wave of innovation," the listing says.
The move comes a few years after Stripe had suspended support for bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) payments as the cryptocurrency had become not convenient for payments for a variety of reasons.
