The online pc gaming website has just announced they are bringing in a welcome new addition to their storefront. They will now be adding cryptocurrency vouchers to their already popular storefront. And will be offering customers a way to purchase them in small amounts of Bitcoin so they can easily add the purchases to their online wallet. The wallet services, are handled through a partnership with Crypto Voucher. They will primarily be sold in increments of 25, 50 or 100 Euros according to what was researched.
Bitcoin has been on the move in the last few years, but at a much slower rate. In the last few months one Bitcoin has more than tripled in value, hitting a cap today over $17,000. That makes it one of the fastest growing currencies in history and it seems like this is just the beginning. G2A says that offering these smaller voucher purchases makes it much easier to invest into Bitcoin.
For many of their users, one BTC is simply to expensive to purchase. They want to give people the opportunity to invest where they are at financially. As of now, the vouchers will only support Bitcoin. But that is not to say they are not going to be giving them for others as well in the future like Ethereum and Litecoin. They actually have released a statement claiming they will be releasing vouchers for those as well.
The announcement came just before another company in the gaming industry announced they would be taken Bitcoin support off of their engine. Steam, possibly the largest online gaming community and support system decided that Bitcoin would no longer be supported on their software. The reason being is that they stated the nature of Bitcoin is simply too volatile and the shifts cause to many value related issues and transaction fees.
Valve has also shown a lot of concern in relation to a large-scale distribution of Steam Keys not occurring in their store. And they claim, that G2A has been a particularly troublesome and controversial reseller of theirs for years. Apparently, they are pulling the plug on several aspects they’ve been supporting in an attempt to regain control of financial issues and fraud occurring within their company. However, the chance that Valve pulling Bitcoin support down doesn’t likely have anything to do with G2A making an announcement they will be supporting it and selling vouchers. It’s most likely just a strange coincidence but surely people will make something of it as they usually do.
In any case, this is a big move for G2A and is going to put them in the cryptocurrency space very soon. It’s nearly for certain they will have it set so they will make a killing off of Bitcoins constant rise and fall. But as of late, the falls of Bitcoin prices have been nothing when compared to the amazingly consistent climb it’s going through. Bitcoin is now considered the modern day gold rush and will likely be around for years to come.
