Valorização nesta terça-feira atingiu recorde em US$200 bilhões — Bitcoin

Ao finalizar sua compra no Steam, nossos usuários devem transferir o valor correspondente em Bitcoins ao valor do jogo e igualmente o valor da tarifa de processamento cobrada pela rede Bitcoin. As principais razões terão sido as altas comissões e a volatilidade da moeda virtual.

"Historicamente, o valor do Bitcoin sempre foi instável, mas ele nunca chegou a este alto ponto de instabilidade como foi visto nos últimos meses, perdendo em torno de 25% do seu valor em apenas alguns dias", explicou a Valve. Quando a Valve passou a oferecer Bitcoin como opção de pagamento à dois anos atrás, a taxa por transação era de apenas 20 cêntimos, mas na semana passada atingiu o máximo de 20 dólares. Posteriormente o valor voltou a descer um pouco, para cerca de 14.8 mil dólares por unidade.

"Estas taxas resultam em descabidos custos para a compra de jogos quando se utiliza Bitcoin".

"O valor da Bitcoin só é garantido durante um certo período de tempo, por isso, se a transação não se completar dentro dessa janela temporal, a quantidade de Bitcoin necessária para cobrir a transação pode mudar", acrescentou a companhia.

Mais uma vez, a Valve faz questão de salientar que o grande problema na aceitação de Bitcoin como forma de pagamento é o facto de ser extremamente volátil, o que poderá causar grandes problemas tanto para a empresa como para os seus utilizadores.
