微软商店将不再接受比特币支付

微软在其官方网站上宣布将不再接受在Windows 10和Windows 10 Mobile系统上进行比特币支付。但是现存的比特币余额仍旧可以用于支付。该公告如下:

“您不能将比特币赎回到您的微软账户中。您账户中现存的余额仍将可被用来在微软商店购买产品,但是不能退还。”

2014年12月,微软曾宣布与BitPay合作把比特币整合入微软的Windows和Xbox数字支付系统,这也带动当时的比特币的价值激增20美元。

微软对数字货币具有浓厚兴趣

微软创始人Bill Gates也曾表达过他对数字货币的支持。2014年10月在接受彭博社的采访时,他谈道:

“比特币是如此令人兴奋,因为它的交易成本很低廉。比特币优于普通货币的地方是你无须在同一地点随身携带金钱。当然对于金额较大的交易来说,使用普通货币会极其麻烦。”

然而,近期微软的兴趣点从比特币转向了区块链。区块链是分布式分类账系统,比特币以及其他数字加密货币都建立在此基础上。

微软正在它的云计算平台上建设“注册区块链市场”。微软的云计算平台叫做Microsoft Azure,参与者必须在此平台上接受严格的测试。

On its official windows website Microsoft announced that it will no longer accept Bitcoin for payments in their Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. The existing Bitcoin balances can still be used for payments, though. The announcement read:

“You can no longer redeem Bitcoin into your Microsoft account. Existing balances in your account will still be available for purchases from Microsoft Store, but can't be refunded.”

Bitcoin’s value had earlier surged by USD 20 in December, 2014, when Microsoft had announced the plans to integrate Bitcoin into its Windows and Xbox digital payments system in association with BitPay.

Microsoft’s interest in the digital currency

Microsoft’s Founder Bill Gates had also earlier stated that he was supportive of the digital currency. In an interview with Bloomberg in October, 2014, he had said:

"Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be. Bitcoin is better than currency in that you don't have to be physically in the same place. And of course for large transactions currency can get pretty inconvenient."

However, recently, Microsoft’s interest had changed its focus from Bitcoin to Blockchain, the distributed ledger system on which Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are built.

Microsoft is building what it is terming a “certified blockchain marketplace” on its cloud computing platform, Microsoft Azure where the participants will have to undergo rigorous testing.
