Blame for high transaction costs.

In a post, Valve announces that the game store Steam no longer accepts bitcoin as the payment method.

High transaction costs
This is mainly due to large fluctuations in value as well as high transaction costs which, according to the company, were up to $ 20 last week. When Steam first added the option to pay with bitcoin, the transaction cost was $ 0.20.

This fee is what customers have to stand for and Valve fear they can be even higher if the value of bitcoin falls.

Can be reassessed in the future
Valve also points to the big fluctuations in the value of bitcoin.

"The value of the bitcoin is guaranteed only for a short period of time, so if the transaction does not go through during that period, the amount of bitcoin needed to complete the transaction may change," explains the company.

The solutions are either to refund the amount to the buyer or ask it to pay more. In both cases, the buyer will have to pay new transaction costs and Valve writes that more customers experience this.

The company concludes the post by saying that support for bitcoin as payment method may come back at a later date.
