Valve décide d'abandonner le Bitcoin malgré sa récente explosion !

  • 77000 comptes Steam piratés chaque mois

Valve a en effet publié sur son blog officiel un message des plus clairs spécifiant qu'à compter d'aujourd'hui, cette monnaie virtuelle ne serait plus acceptée sur Steam en tant que moyen de paiement.

"Pour Valve, la grande volatilité de la valeur du bitcoin et la " forte instabilité au cours des ces derniers mois", ainsi que des " problèmes liés aux frais de traitement élevés " ont été de trop. Si la cryptomonnaie trouve un peu plus de stabilité. Finalement ils rendent l'achat de jeux sur Steam déraisonnablement onéreux.

La plateforme de jeux vidéo n'accepte plus la cryptomonnaie comme moyen de paiement. " Le nombre de clients ainsi affectés a continué d'augmenter tout au long de l'année, et avec des frais de traitement aussi élevés, il devient difficile de rembourser le client ou de lui demander de transférer le solde manquant (qui le cas échéant, court le risque de voir sa transaction à nouveau échouer si la valeur du bitcoin fluctue excessivement alors que le réseau Bitcoin traite le nouveau transfert)". Steam n'acceptera donc plus, du moins dans l'immédiat, les paiements en Bitcoin.

Who made the list?

Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Shares Bought by Commerce Bank
Amazon.com now has an average rating of Buy and an average target price of $1,219.02. (NASDAQ:AMZN) rating on Wednesday, July 6. Mizuho reissued a buy rating and issued a $1,250.00 target price on shares of Amazon.com in a report on Monday, August 7th.

Comme le Bitcoin, ces frais de transaction ne cessent de varier en temps réel, au gré de l'évolution du cours de la cryptomonnaie.

Valve écrit notamment que les frais ont atteint 20 $ par transaction la semaine dernière, en comparaison à 0,20 $ lorsque cette option de paiement avait été activée.

L'équipe Steam a déclaré que les clients avaient l'habitude de payer 20 cents (17 centimes) par transaction Bitcoin quand la crypto-monnaie est arrivée sur sa plate-forme l'année dernière. À l'heure actuelle, la pièce est en pleine hausse, mais les observateurs du marché restent dubitatifs sur sa valeur future. Toutefois, au vu de la " volatilité de la valeur du Bitcoin", Steam a décidé de ne plus accepter ce dernier comme moyen de paiement. Deux raisons qui l'ont motivé à arrêter les frais pour l'instant. Tout en précisant que cette décision n'est pas forcément définitive: " Nous réévaluerons peut-être ultérieurement la pertinence du Bitcoin pour la communauté Steam et pour nous " conclut le porte-parole de Steam.
