Some in the crypto community view BitPay negatively after the service blocked crypto donations to the Hong Kong Free Press last year. He also rebounded a donation of $ 100,000 to the Amazon Rainforest Fire Relief Fund.
Time will tell if BitPay can save some of its reputation as it advances in the travel industry.
