BitPay Integrates with Xsolla to Bring The Benefits of Bitcoin Purchases to Gamers Worldwide
BitPay, the world’s leading bitcoin payment processor, today announced that they have integrated with Xsolla, a well-known billing platform that helps game developers monetize and improve conversion. Big gaming companies like Twitch and Nexonhave already started accepting bitcoin as a reliable in-game payment method.
According to Bitcoin Pulse, there are more than 100 thousand bitcoin transactions made daily, making this an ideal time for Xsolla and its partners to embrace bitcoin for in-game payments. A number of other gaming companies have made the same decision. Bigpoint Games, which implemented with BitPay last year, plans to add bitcoin payments to the highly anticipated Game of Thrones game.
“Bitcoin makes in-game purchases more efficient and secure than ever before,” says Sonny Singh, VP of Sales at BitPay. “Traditional payment methods like credit cards are not always able to support these types of purchases like bitcoin can.”
“Xsolla is designed to seamlessly integrate payments into the gaming process,” says Oleg Poskotin, VP of Finance at Xsolla. “Our partnership with BitPay enables us to bring bitcoin payments to game developers, extending their purchasing freedom.”
Xsolla’s worldwide adoption of bitcoin will enable players in the most remote places to make in-game purchases. Now, bitcoin payments are an easy way to complete transactions faster than ever before, allowing seamless user experience for gamers.
BitPay is the global leader in bitcoin payment processing with offices throughout North America, Europe, and South America. The company has raised over $32 million from top investors including Index Ventures, Founders Fund, and Sir Richard Branson.
