Buying Video Games with Bitcoin
Indy games are some of the most creative and innovative games out there, and one way to try a bunch of new ones is the Humble Indie Bundle. Humble Indie Bundle 8 comes with seven games: Dear Esther, Capsized, Awesomenauts, Thomas Was Alone, Little Inferno, Proteus, and Hotline Miami. They’re cross-platform and DRM-free, and sold on a Pay-what-you-want basis. It’s also a way to fundraise for charity. You can determine how you want your purchase divided: between the developers, the Child’s Play Charity, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Recently they started accepting Bitcoin as one of their payment options.
My boyfriend Dave really loves indy games. When I saw that he was about to purchase one, I suggested that we use my bitcoins. He logged into his account, and paying directly via Coinbase was an option. The process was super simple, and felt even faster than PayPal. My $10 donation cost me 0.07658 BTC.
I took some screenshots of the process so that you could see how easy it was! Click here to check out the Humble Indie Bundle and support some awesome charities and small developers!
