Amazon-Owned Twitch Quietly Brings Back Bitcoin Payments
Amazon-owned, leading game streaming platform Twitch has brought back bitcoin payments.
As Cointelegraph reported at the time, in March Twitch quietly removed bitcoin and bitcoin cash as payment options for subscriptions by removing Bitpay as a payment method. Per the report, Bitpay has been enabled again as a payment processor on the platform.
Bitcoin and bitcoin cash can be found as payment options in the section dedicated to the less common payment methods of the subscription payment page. The renewed enabling of those coins as payment options has not been announced on the company’s blog or in a press release.
Bitcoin — after trading sideways in the $3,000-$4,000 range for the first months of the year — has recently rallied and broke $13,000 yesterday. As of press time, bitcoin is down 5.47% on the day and up nearly 32% on the week.
