I think there is a need to rationalise and disambiguate the tagging for Bitcoin.
There is now consensus that places that accept the Bitcoin ‘currency’ as payment should use the
currency:XBT tag, which seems sensible. Historically, people have used (and still do use) ‘payment=bitcoin’ to denote the same thing.
There are now new payment methods for Bitcoin the ‘currency’; namely Bitcoin Lightning and Bitcoin Lightning NFC. These are in addition to the original on-chain ‘payment method’ that is implicitly implied in the ‘payment:bitcoin’ tag.
The following seems most logical to me:
bitcoin=accepted(deprecated) - Bitcoin the currency accepted.
payment:lightning- Lightning accepted. as a payment method.
payment:lightningnfc- Lightning NFC accepted as a payment method.
payment:onchain- Onchain accepted as a payment method.
- The payment tags listed could be used in combination with other currencies.
- There are screnarios where Bitcoin will only be accepted via the Lightning ‘payment method’.
- There is a also discussion to be had around the migration of
payment:bitcoinimplied onchain acceptance of Bitcoin as Lightning as a payment method didn’t exist.
What are peoples thoughts?
