Steam payments in Bitcoin

Postby norbs » Fri Nov 10, 2017 8:24 am

I saw this on Twitter... (interestingly, still no AUD as far as I can tell)



So asked about Bitcoin payments. Someone replied you can already pay by Bitcoin.

Anyone know how, I cant figure it out for the life of me.

So we can pay with dong or colon, but not with dollarydoos. So gay.

When you choose payment method for a purchase it's in the drop down list. Haven't used it myself but looks like people recommend adding funds to your steam wallet instead of using it for individual game purchases.

Depending on the bank, you may still pay "overseas transation" charge. Eg I pay this on every payment to Amazon on our server hosting and it's a fucking ripoff too, because it's a percentage!
Even though the transaction is in Aus$ and local, there's something with Amazon being registered overseas, they charge you.

You're best off getting a 28 degrees mastercard, no extra charges, and a very close exchange rate. Use that for steam purchases, like I do :)
Surprise, no sig. Now there is. Or is there?

by the way, if you have solar and a good GPU, there is money to be made.

This is my 1080Ti....

The 1070 isnt far behind. I run them both during the day and it is getting to be very worthwhile.

But day time is free power for me. :)

Some play it safe on the merry-go-round, others go for the thrills of the roller-coaster.
