This decision is caused due to the recent change with Coinbase Commerce
26 March 2018   1361

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.

Chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton said that bitcoin needs more regulation for listing on large exchanges. It is reported by CNBC.

If [investors] think there’s the same rigor around that price discovery as there is on the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange ... they are sorely mistaken. We have to get to a place where we can be confident that trading is better regulated.

Chairman, SEC

He was talking about listing conditions for bitcoin itself, and not derivatives, such as CME futures.
