    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,

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

    Is this working on Moodle 3.4?
  • Mon, Jan 8, 2018, 7:52 PM
    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.

    Hi. Thanks for the plugin. It looks just right for me. The only issue I'm having is that I'm getting "An error has occurred - Invalid redirect URI" from coinbase. Although my redirect URl looks right. Am I doing something wrong?

    Using the open-source pay-processor, BTCPayServer https://btcpayserver.org , instead of CoinBase would be very good!
