Zynga accepting Bitcoins via BitPay as payment option in social gaming

Washington, Jan. 5 : Gaming giant Zynga has started accepting top cryptocurrency bitcoin as a payment option for gamers buying tokens for virtual goods.

The 'bitcoin test' will be available on the web versions of FarmVille 2, CastleVille, ChefVille, CoasterVille, Hidden Chronicles, Hidden Shadows and CityVille.

According to Techcrunch, it makes Zynga the first major gaming company to accept Bitcoin.

Zynga posted the news on Reddit rather than release an official announcement.

It is calling this a 'test' being run in partnership with BitPay - the startup backed by the likes of the Founders Fund and Li Ka-shing that is vying to be the "PayPal of the Bitcoin world," the report added.
