Can Bitcoin be set as the default currency in an online store?

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to start an online store using the Buy Button and would like to use Bitcoin as the store's currency. (fixed price in bitcoin rather than converting from USD/GBP etc). I can see XBT in the currencies.js but it isn't an option for the store's currency.

I see others have encountered the same issue in the past but seems like they didn't gain traction:

Furthermore, Bitcoins can be denominated into satoshis (100,000,000 satoshis make up a 1 BTC), I would like to use that as the default denomination if possible.

Thanks,

Why are you not comfortable just converting currencies?

I want to price my products in terms of Bitcoin rather than a fiat value.

 

E.g. 0.001 BTC would be the price. Perhaps adjusted weekly or so.

I often think about how the world would change if bitcoin were the default choice on all well-known sites like Amazon and other online purchases.

Same question as above. I would like to display store prices in BTC not in USD or EUR. Is that currently possible via widget ot setting core currency to BTC? 

(could be other crypto currency - BTC is just an example).
