Now Accepting | February 11, 2016 By:

Wargaming announced partnership with leading Bitcoin payment processor BitPay to enable their massively-multiplayer online (MMO) gaming platform to accept bitcoin.

“Gaming has been one of bitcoin’s most promising markets, as we’ve seen from a year of working with merchants and technology partners in the space. Today we’re happy to announce the addition of one the most prominent names in online gaming: Wargaming.net,” said BitPay.

Wargaming’s integration of the BitPay processing technology is one of the first implementation of the Payment Protocol standard, which allows Wargaming customers to purchase virtual gold faster, broadcasting their transaction to the Bitcoin network in less time.

Wargaming is the leader in MMO gaming and has released 15 popular strategy-based games including World of Tanks, World of Warships, and World of Warplanes over the past few years. All of the company’s games are free to play and the Wargaming platform enables players to customize weapons and vehicles used in the game.
