So I hear a lot of people here saying that one should accept bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general as a payment method since their values are too volatile. That's true, they are super volatile. You can have the value plummet by $100 in a single day. But I don't think this factor should deter people from accepting bitcoin. Coinbase and bitpay allow merchants to accept bitcoin as payment but receive cash instantly, hence nullifying the volatility factor. Their commissions are less that mastercard or visa so there's really no downside to it either.
