BitPay, platform virtual payments focused on the management of Bitcoins has officially announced their partnership to promote a new method of payment in Steam, the online store of Valve. It is the ability to purchase any game and from anywhere in the world through Bitcoins.
The idea is to buy titles from Valve (including Left 4 Dead, Half-Life and Portal) or any of the other 9,000 games from other development firms that advertise on Steam, store that is available in nearly 240 countries, paying safely and quickly by this method. The new option will be displayed in the list of modes of payment received and for execution, a redirect to the page Bitpay will be made.
According to the two companies, the biggest advantages of this implementation will be in countries like India, China and Brazil who represent large emerging market in video games and whose users often do not have credit cards for virtual payments or practical purchasing methods online that do not require large commissions for the right to purchase goods and services on the network.
In short, more likely to spend money, even Bitcoins in any promotions selling video games of Steam. According Bitpay, ideally out the method of payment more video game stores.
