Microsoft: Sorry, your bitcoin is still good here


Technology company Microsoft was forced to apologize on Monday, after accidentally announcing that it would no longer accept bitcoin.

Contrary to an earlier statement, Microsoft users can still use the virtual currency to buy content in the Windows and Xbox stores. Earlier on Monday, the software giant mistakenly suggested it had stopped accepting payment in bitcoin.

“We apologize for inaccurate information that was inadvertently posted to a Microsoft site, which is currently being corrected,” a spokesman told CNBC.
