Recently, we reported that Microsoft was no more accepting Bitcoin as a technique to pay for content on Windows and Xbox. Today, Microsoft is expressing that the firm still accepts Bitcoin, and that the Microsoft site that said that they won’t was accidental.
Microsoft issued the following explanation to Softpedia, who found the first story:
We keep on supporting Bitcoin for adding cash to your Microsoft Account which can be used for buying content in the Windows and Xbox stores. We apologize for inaccurate information that was inadvertently posted on a Microsoft site, which is right now being corrected.
It’s difficult to tell without a doubt if the firm is backtracking or if it was truly unintentional that they said what they did. Nevertheless, enthusiasts of the digital coin can once again rejoice.
