    The purpose of the diploma thesis is to describe the alternative way of payment by using virtual and digital currencies. We try to find out, whether these systems are appropriate for general integration in existing solutions. Firstly, we explain the importance of introducing cryptography in online communication and the operating of hash functions. Next, there are definitions of all significant roles of external systems connected to digital currencies, followed by the description of crypto currencies and the design of transaction. The possibilities of payment are shown in the online store designed in programming languages PHP and JavaScript. We ascertain that networking with payment processors via applicative programming interfaces is completely feasible, but inappropriate for random solutions due to the instability and deflation of the crypto currency. The conclusion indicates that the regular methods of payment are still more reliable than the alternative ones at the moment.
