Valve Begins Accepting Bitcoin As Payment Method On Steam

Gamers may soon be able to buy their favorite video games with bitcoin, the world’s most popular and valuable cryptocurrency, thanks to a partnership between the digital distribution platform Steam and the payment processor BitPay.

Although neither Steam nor its developer Valve has commented on this development, gamers Tuesday began seeing the option to pay with bitcoin appear when adding credit to their accounts. However, BitPay has published a blog post on the agreement between the parties with Rory Desmond, the company’s head of business development in North America and the Asia-Pacific region, saying it was Valve that contacted his firm about the possibility of facilitating the new payment method.
