Twitch allows crypto-based payments Twitch accepts Bitcoin again as a method of payment, according to Blockonomi. The video game streaming platform had previously allowed users to subscribe to the popular cryptocurrency, but this feature was discontinued earlier this year. Now it seems that the ability to pay with Bitcoin has been re-enabled - at least in some of Twitch's markets.
BitPay, a payment processor that turns cryptocurrencies into fiat money, is likely processing bitcoin payments, Blockonomi said. While it's unlikely that Twitch will actually receive Bitcoin, the fact that one of the world's most popular gaming platforms enables Bitcoin-based payments is another important step toward mainstream crypto distribution.
