Digital currencies such as Bitcoin are getting more attention from regular folks these days. Some merchants have started accepting payments in Bitcoin. Learning how to send and receive Bitcoins is not that difficult but you want to do your homework to make sure you don’t make disastrous mistakes.

We have already covered how you can accept Bitcoin payments on your e-commerce site. Those of you who accept donations on your site may want to keep Bitcoin in mind. There are many ways to add “Donate Bitcoin” buttons to your site. Here are 3 simple ways to do it:

bitpay

There's another Donate Bitcoin feature from PikaPay.com. PikaPay combines its widget with your Twitter address and allows you to send and receive bitcoin payments to and from anyone on Twitter.
