Stripe 發了公告出來，要停止支援 Bitcoin：「Ending Bitcoin Support」。預定保留三個月的緩衝期，在 2018 年 4 月 23 日停掉：
Over the next three months we will work with affected Stripe users to ensure a smooth transition before we stop processing Bitcoin transactions on April 23, 2018.
Transaction confirmation times have risen substantially; this, in turn, has led to an increase in the failure rate of transactions denominated in fiat currencies. (By the time the transaction is confirmed, fluctuations in Bitcoin price mean that it’s for the “wrong” amount.) Furthermore, fees have risen a great deal. For a regular Bitcoin transaction, a fee of tens of U.S. dollars is common, making Bitcoin transactions about as expensive as bank wires.
跟 Steam 當時的理由很類似... (參考「Steam 停止使用 Bitcoin 購買遊戲」)
