Meanwhile, Bitcoin passes 13k due to good news about Lightning Network, which will solve the very issues Steam was dealing with.

Supporting bitcoin and most cryptocurrency is, unfortunately, also supporting the drug and sex trade in places like Russia.

Due to tether pump, bitfinex and hackers pumping the shit out of it
Ask the average normie if he knows what lightning network is

If anything I would only think that makes the currency stronger. There's actual billion dollar industries backing it.

It's obvious why this is happening. A tard buys a game with BTC then the next few days BTC explodes as it did. The said tard feels ripped off so he goes for a return of his money and since he's only played the minimum needed for a refund he has the right for it but said faggot wants not only the $60 he would've paid for a game but plus however much BTC has gone up. At this point steam is just losing money up the ass.

@haveahappyday
bitcoin price doesn't care that companies are dropping it left and right because it costs $20 to move $25
why would you be GLAD that stupid money is buying? unless you sell the top you'll be stupid money soon enough

BTC and its forks have to die. give the place to fucking ripple or something. anything that can do transactions fast and cheap.

I think we're still a few years off of retailers doing anything like this. Decentralized exchanges need to become more robust.

Holy shit this is as important as when Kmart backed HD-DVD instead of Blu-ray

I'd rather use HD DVDs for watching movies than Blu-Ray as a store of value.

ETH will be temporary, maybe LTC, the final replacement for BTC will be like the final replacement for AOL. No one will see it coming.

@Emberfire

Most likely nothing. I bet Bitcoin was less than 0.01% of their revenue and not worth the hassle.

From Valves perspective replacing it with some more functional crypto currency would not do much good as we well know that only people using coins are druggies and criminals and 99%+ of "users" are just HODLing for future profits.

Why though?
I mean everyone who buys something with bitcoins is a literal retard. Valve made a crapload of money with bitcoins, didnt they?
Every bitcoin is pretty much sold super cheap to valve since price will rise higher in the future.

@hairygrape
Anyway I once bought something with btc

Somehow the system didnt accept the coins
Somehow adress issues or whatever later on
Finally worked
Had to wait multiple hours till I got my shit

That was super fucking stupid. I still hate myself for selling btc that cheap. But fiat still does work instantly.

@hairygrape
I think they're just evaluating their risk. They've HODL this long, bitcoin is going parabolic.

@Deadlyinx
How? they want a usable currency with low fees. Bitcoin supporters don't care about fees as long as the price sky rockets.

@hairygrape
They dont want to make money off of accepting bitcoin. They want to give their customers another way to pay them.

Accepting bitcoin payments would have opened up the need to offer support for a ton of dumb users getting confused and not understanding. I dont even want to imagine the number of tickets/emails they received where people asked them to lower the transaction fee they pay when sending bitcoin. People do not understand the tech.

It's not that it matters that Steam cuts support, it shows the Bitcoins main use case : to be a currency, isn't feasible in it's current state.
