The US company started accepting Bitcoin for in-game payments on a selection of its Web-based games this weekend, a move that helped the valuation of the cryptocurrency break the symbolic $1,000 mark once again, according to popular exchange Mt. Gox.
Bitcoin hit that milestone for the first time in November, but a series of setbacks — including new regulations for BTC China, the world’s largest exchange — sent the price tumbling. It was as low as $435 on December 18.
