Microsoft has announced that it is now accepting Bitcoin as a payment option for buying digital content. The integration allows you to add funds to your Microsoft account with Bitcoin, which can then be used for purchasing digital content on Windows, Windows Phone and Xbox.
You cannot directly buy digital content with Bitcoin just yet, as Microsoft illustrates:
"You can only use bitcoin to add money to your Microsoft account and then purchase digital goods at select Microsoft online stores. You can't use bitcoin to purchase Microsoft products and services directly at this time."
All transactions will be handled by BitPay. For instructions on how you can add funds to your Microsoft account using Bitcoin, head to the link below. How many of you are excited to see Microsoft integrate Bitcoin as a payment method?
Thanks for the tip Mark!
