[Demo Video] Monetize your Android App with Bitcoins

        I don’t know how it possible? In Google Play Developer Policy is written:
        App purchases: Developers charging for apps and downloads from Google Play must do so by using Google Play’s payment system. In-app purchases: Developers offering virtual goods or currencies within a game downloaded from Google Play must use Google Play’s in-app billing service as the method of payment. Developers offering additional content, services or functionality within another category of app downloaded from Google Play must use Google Play’s in-app billing service as the method of payment

        Can you explain how is it can be legal?

          It really depends on the use case. From Google Play Guidelines

          “Developers offering additional content, services or functionality within another category of app downloaded from Google Play must use Google Play’s in-app billing service as the method of payment, except:
          where payment is primarily for physical goods or services (e.g., buying movie tickets, or buying a publication where the price also includes a hard copy subscription); or
          where payment is for digital content or goods that may be consumed outside of the app itself (e.g., buying songs that can be played on other music players).”
