Using your Bitcoin
So you’ve bought some bitcoin, now what? Owning any cryptocurrency can feel a bit like owning a lump of gold. Sure it’s pretty to look at and admire, but you can’t exactly toss it over the counter at your local convenience store. Or can you? We’ve compiled a list of neat places and ways to use your bitcoin once you’ve gotten your hands on those satoshis (a satoshi is the smallest unit of a bitcoin that can be recorded on the blockchain, one satoshi equals one hundred millionth of a bitcoin).
Get your game on
With partner BitPay, Valve’s Steam store, allows you to purchase your favourite titles with bitcoin. You can now select bitcoin as your preferred payment method during checkout and, with the easy to use BitPay integration, join the action with the largest gaming outlet on PC.
