Microsoft Begins Accepting Bitcoin For Purchasing Digital Goods

"Microsoft is partnering with Bitcoin payment processor BitPay to accept the cryptocurrency. One reason Microsoft is going after this is because it’ll help make international payment processing more convenient, said BitPay cofounder and executive chairman Tony Gallippi in a phone interview. “They’re a global company,” he said. “People are using their products and operating system in many parts of the world that don’t have credit card penetration. It’s difficult for many consumers to actually be able to put money in their Microsoft accounts.”
