Patrick Collison wrote last week that he felt it was important for Stripe to publicly oppose racism.

Stripe, the online payments platform, will not charge fees on funds raised to pay bail for people arrested as part of the Black Lives Matters protests in the US.

The decision was made last weekend by the company, founded by Limerick brothers Patrick and John Collison.

Separately, Stripe will also waive $1 million-worth of fees to organisations which are fighting systemic racism in the US.
