Microsoft Might Introduce Bitcoin For Its Xbox Online Store Soon.

Leading tech giant Microsoft seems to be thinking of introducing Bitcoin [BTC] as a means of payment at its Xbox gaming console online store.

In line with an official web blog post earlier on 12th March via Reddit post on r/XboxSeriesX, Microsoft has added out a survey asking Xbox users about their preferred payment options at its online store.

“Which of these other payment methods would you wish to use on Xbox?,” the purported survey asks, listing Bitcoin together of the potential payment methods. An equivalent photo has also been circulating across several other subreddits including r/ethtrader and r/Bitcoin.

One Xbox user added that the survey is out there “if you participate within the Xbox Insider program for beta testing OS updates.”

However, at the reporting time, Microsoft has not yet confirmed officially.

Earlier in 2014, Microsoft started accepting Bitcoin to fund Microsoft accounts, permitting its U.S.-based users to get content from Windows, along with Xbox games. After briefly halting the payment option, Microsoft resumed Bitcoin payments for its MS Store earlier in January. Cryptocurrency-based payments aren’t presently supported at the Xbox online store.

While it’s going to be accepting Bitcoin as payment, Microsoft has no plans to form a much bigger entrance into the crypto space like Tesla. President Brad Smith revealed that the firm didn’t have any cryptocurrency diversification plans following Tesla’s $1.5 Bln investment into Bitcoin [BTC].
