Based in Germany, the company has grown to over 1,200 employees and has produced 10 titles in 26 languages. Users in the US and Netherlands will now be able to pay with bitcoin after they expressed interest to the company. It plans on eventually rolling out the capability to its 270 million users worldwide.

Oleg Savschouk, Head of Monetization & Payment, commented, “Our partnership with BitPay is an important step for us, and we are excited to be one of the few gaming companies that offer payments with bitcoins.”
News of high-profile companies making the move to accept bitcoin has slowed considerably this year. 2014 saw heavyweights like Microsoft, Dell and PayPal take the plunge. But in 2015, it has been a combination of slower adoption, the depletion of interested companies that have yet to accept it, and that for many, such news may not be as exciting as developments like the emerging applications for blockchain technology.
