As of today, Jagex will be accepting Cryptocurrency payments for their games. Jagex has partnered with BitPay and Adyen to accept bitcoins.
Jagex is probably best known for the critically acclaimed MMORPG Runescape. From today, players will have the opportunity to pay for their membership and various microtransactions using bitcoins.
David Parrott the Payments Services Director at Jagex had this to say:
Gamers are smart. We know they get tech, and we know that for them the cryptocurrency protocol is cool and here to stay. By allowing our players to pay however they want, we remove any obstacles between them and having fun…
We’re always examining new and viable ways of widening our payment options, and the excellent services that BitPay and Adyen offer give us the commercial peace of mind to do just that.
