The world's largest gaming platform Steam no longer supports bitcoin as a method of payment. As reported in the official blog Valve, this step the company had to go because of high volatility and noticeably increased commissions.
"In recent months, we have seen a sharp increase in bitcoat volatility. In addition, last week the commission for one transaction approached the $ 20 mark - a noticeable increase compared to $ 0.2, when we just started supporting this crypto currency. Unfortunately, Valve can not influence the amount of commissions. As a result, users face unreasonably high prices when buying games using bitcoin, "the report said.
