    Steam drops support for Bitcoin payments

    Steam will no longer support Bitcoin as a payment method due to high fees and volatility in its value.

    I tried buying something recently through Bitcoin because the merchant offered an extra 10% discount if I paid via Bitcoin, but after all the fees were deducted it ended up costing me more. So the rampant value of Bitcoin and its exorbitant fees is going to be its downfall, because I honestly can't see a virtual currency being useful if no one wants to accept it for its intended purpose.
