Microsoft will continue bitcoin support, after inaccurate information was posted online

Remember when the entire media reported on the case of Microsoft no longer accepting bitcoin payments? Well, for some reason, it seems like they have changed their minds.

Recent reports indicate that in a press statement, Microsoft has clarified that nothing has actually changed, and that bitcoin support is still available. This means that users are still able to load up bitcoin for purchases made in the Windows 10 store, without encountering any issues whatsoever.

Microsoft said that: “We continue to support Bitcoin for adding money to your Microsoft Account which can be used for purchasing content in the Windows and Xbox stores. We apologize for inaccurate information that was inadvertently posted to a Microsoft site, which is currently being corrected.”

At this moment in time, it remains unclear whether Microsoft is in fact planning to stop bitcoin support in the near future. Additionally, there is also little to no information on its customers using the cryptocurrency, which is why an analysis on whether using the digital currency as a means of accepting payment is viable for the company or not.

Since December 2014 when Microsoft added Bitcoin support via BitPay until now, there have been no issues whatsoever with the platform. Now that things have been clarified, we’re excited to see where this is heading.
