    Hi. Thanks for sharing the plugin with the community. While reviewing the code, I discovered some issues and reported them into your bug tracker. Some of them are quite serious and should be fixed prior using this plugin in production. I am going to mark this plugin as needing more work now.

    Please make sure to follow the Moodle coding guidelines and coding style to avoid some of these issues. Also note that the automatic prechecker does not cover all the aspects of the guidelines. Thanks for understanding.

    Thanks for the fixes Arindam. I left some additional comments in your tracker. Please note it may help to actually close the issues in the tracker with a reference to the particular commit that fixes them. Github has some nice in-built support for it. I think we can approve this now. You are cleared to land, welcome to the Plugins directory!

    Hi Luca,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Unfortunately this plugin can not work with litecoins, that would require the development of another plugin for litecoin. I am sorry we could not help much, please do let me know if you need any other assistance as well.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Arindam

    Must I use Coinbase to use this plugin, or does it support Bitcoin directly, without any intermediary?

    Hi! Freddie,
    Thanks for reaching out. The current version is supported by Moodle 3.3 ( 2.5-3.3). We are not sure about Moodle 3.4 as we have not tested it thoroughly, yet. I will let you know when we are sure of the fact that this is v3.4 compatible.
    Thanks.
