Paying Bitcoin Bills With Altcoins Via ForkPay Plug-in

ForkPay is a new browser-based plug-in system that has been released to allow people to easily convert altcoins into bitcoin to pay bills online. Although it is currently only available for Chrome-based browsers and supports 6 alternative cryptocurrencies, there are plans to expand on these limits, as well as to release new services, in an effort to make altcoins as viable as bitcoin.

Litecoin, Dogecoin, Dash, NXT, BitcoinDark and Peercoin are all currently available to convert into bitcoin using the plug-in, which uses the API. The plug-in appears next to the bitcoin address and opens a menu with options of paying with different cryptocurrencies, checking the bitcoin address information and hiding the plug-in for the site (the option can be found if hidden by right-clicking on the bitcoin address). This enables users to transfer between digital currencies when paying bitcoin bills quickly by eliminating the need to visit an exchange.
