You can now Pay for Steam Games with Bitcoin, adding an all new payment method to the gaming platform. Bitcoin has been rarely discussed positively in the news lately, but the cryptocurrency still remains one the most used digital currencies out there, with no competing standard being anywhere near as popular or widely used as bitcoin. 

Bitcoin has been added to several digital storefronts over the past few years, with Steam being the latest online storefront to adopt it. At this time, it is thought that Valve are using the third party BitPay company to handle all Bitcoin transactions, automatically converting the digital currency into more standard currency like USD or GBP.

ATM it is expected to use a similar approach to other sites where it will use the current value of Bitcoin to directly convert it to whatever currency the store us using. Bitcoin to GBP in the UK or to USD in the US.

Exact details on the method are not clear yet, but it should be a straight-up conversion to the currency that region uses.Quote

Isn't is hard to obtain bitcoins these days? It's becoming more popular and more people are mining for them. We remember the 290x launches were constantly out if stock because there were so much better than Kepler.. This in turn caused values to drop significantly. Not sure if it's recovered thoughQuote
