Zynga tests Bitcoin payments for seven online games

Zynga has for years offered the ability for players to buy in-game assets and upgrades using their credit cards and PayPal, as well as Facebook local currency , but Zynga admits that Bitcoin has now become too big for it ignore.

It's unclear for now just how long the test will last, much less whether Zynga will expand Bitcoin payments to other games, as Zynga said it had no comment beyond its Reddit post. Still, the move only furthers Bitcoin's growing legitimacy as an alternative currency, bolstering the notions of those who view it as more convenient and efficient for micropayments than online services like PayPal.
