The Reddit forum has suspended receipt of bitcoin payments for Reddit Gold, a premium account for subscribers, due to disruptions in the Coinbase Commerce service, Bitcoin. com reports.
The upcoming Coinbase change, combined with some bugs around the Bitcoin payment option that were affecting purchases for certain users, led us to remove Bitcoin as a payment option. We’re going to take a look at demand and watch the progression of Coinbase Commerce before making a decision on whether to re-enable.

Reddit also removed the r / Darknetmarkets page, where users discussed ways to fully anonymously spend crypto currency on black markets.
Earlier it became known that in December 2017, a vulnerability was discovered in the smart contract of the Coinbase exchange, which allowed users to manipulate the balance by crediting an unlimited number of Ethereum tokens.
The exchange was able to eliminate the bug in January and paid a reward for its detection in the amount of $ 10 thousand.
