Zynga is testing Bitcoin payments for its Web games

BucketZynga has revealed that it is testing a partnership with Bitpay to accept Bitcoins for in-game purchases on some of its Web-based games.

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

If you want to give it a try, the test is active on Zynga.com for FarmVille 2, CastleVille, ChefVille, CoasterVille, Hidden Chronicles, Hidden Shadows and CityVille.
