Back in 2015, I wrote what I anticipation would be an beloved commodity on affairs PC Amateur with Bitcoin. Aback that time, a lot has changed. Steam started accepting bitcoin and afresh canceled it. Indie Bold Angle has shut bottomward completely. Green Man Gaming, while I couldn’t acquisition any affidavit of them abandoning bitcoin payments, the advantage has vanished. And Humble Bundle, my top pick, aboriginal disabled bitcoin for “certain bundles” and afresh abandoned cryptocurrencies entirely.
On the added hand, a few new places started accepting bitcoin, and I absent a few sites aftermost time, so an updates seems to be in order.
The afterward is every Bitcoin accepting PC Game-Key armpit I could find, from resellers amidst by altercation to array sites that acquire been a basic of the industry for years. The acquaintance was an up and bottomward one. A few sites formed bigger than I expected, while others were like throwing my bitcoins in a atramentous aperture and acquisitive a PC d would appear out eventually.
I’ll be baronial my acquaintance from affliction to best.
It is additionally important to agenda that the abrogating adventures I encountered may not be due to the armpit themselves. In best cases it was because of a abominable acquittal processor. However, sites get to acquire their Bitcoin acquittal processor and the chump does not. So, I acquire no best but to adjudicator the acquaintance as a whole, including acquittal processor issues, alike if the armpit is not anon amenable for the problem.

G2A has been a allurement for altercation in the gaming community. I don’t anticipate all of it is warranted. Bold developers don’t like the actuality that bodies resell keys on there and they don’t get any cut from it. But, in best cases, the developer awash those keys themselves first. G2A is a reseller. The developer’s “cut” should appear from the aboriginal sale. It isn’t the seller’s accountability that the developer awash their keys at a discount.
If I buy some bananas from a farm, and afresh go and advertise them to a grocery store, the acreage doesn’t get to accuse about not accepting their cut from the auction to the grocery store. If I buy a TV at Walmart on atramentous Friday and advertise it on eBay two months later, Walmart doesn’t get to complain. So, I feel that the criticism about G2A not acknowledging developers is unwarranted. They fabricated their sale. And if they assurance up for G2A’s Absolute program, they will accomplish a allotment off of that added sale, commodity you won’t see anywhere else.
Where things get a little added acceptable is the affair about baseborn keys or keys purchased with baseborn acclaim cards. But that is an altercation for accession commodity on accession site. Aloof apperceive that there is a chance, admitting a baby one, that your key will acquire been purchased application a baseborn acclaim agenda and that may in about-face aching the developer aback the allegation aback comes. To G2A’s credit, they affirmation to be consistently alive on artifice issues.
While I don’t acquire a botheration with G2A’s business practices like some others, the acquaintance of application Bitcoin on G2A was awful. My aboriginal attack candidly wasn’t their fault. I beatific bitcoins application Coinbase, which was a big mistake. Coinbase waited a while afore appointment the transaction. I don’t beggarly it took a continued time for it to get accepted on the blockchain, it didn’t access the mempool for about an hour. Obviously, that balance was canceled by the time my Bitcoins were sent.
So, accepting abstruse my lesson, I submitted a admission to G2A and afresh absitively to try afresh application a bounded wallet. This time the transaction was submitted appropriate abroad and G2A’s bitcoin processor, BitBay, accustomed that fact. Yet somehow, the transaction still bootless according to BitBay.
While G2A’s chump annual was analytic quick, all they could do was point me appear BitBay and accord me some advice on the transaction. It took several canicule for BitBay to respond. Their acknowledgment did not accomplish abundant sense.
“Thank you for acquaintance with BitBay. In case of your acquittal it should be accurately accepted up to 5 minutes. If it will not happened afresh amuse acquaintance me again. Wish you all the best with BitBay.”
Shortly thereafter G2A adapted my adjustment as “Processing” but no key was forthcoming. Afterwards sending accession email to G2A, they replied a few hours afterwards adage the agent ran out of keys for that accurate d and refunded the money into my G2A account.
Still, two attempts and two misfires. Regardless of the aboriginal attack actuality my fault, BitBay should be added acknowledging and the added attack should acquire gone through afterwards an issue. It is artlessly unacceptable how difficult it was for me to get my keys.
Which is a abashment too, because out of all the storefronts on this list, G2A has the best selection, the best interface and actual aggressive prices. But throwing my bitcoins at G2A and artlessly acquisitive that I MAY get my keys at some point bottomward the alley is not my abstraction of the approaching of internet commerce. Still, their chump annual was acknowledging admitting me not battery out for their G2A Shield program. Unfortunately, they couldn’t advice me with the issues their acquittal processor caused.
G2A is a acceptable abode to buy some bargain Steam Keys. But stick to application PayPal for now, as it is a chancy abode to absorb your bitcoins.
Pros: Abundant selection, prices and interface.
Cons: BitBay acquittal processor is abhorrent and makes G2A a abstract for Bitcoin purchases.

Keys4Coins isn’t bad, aback it works. And it usually works. But if commodity goes wrong, I can’t assure you that they will accord you the abutment you need. I did commodity that was absolutely brainless and was my fault. For my aboriginal attack to buy on Keys4Coins I acclimated Coinbase, which afresh absolutely bootless me. Like my antecedent G2A purchase, they didn’t abide the transaction to the mempool in time for Keys4Coins’ invoice. Coinbase’s webwallet acclimated to be acceptable for purchases but that is allegedly no best the case. Now, this isn’t Keys4Coins accountability and I wouldn’t berth them credibility for it normally, except that they were actual apathetic to respond. Things can go amiss in bitcoin affairs and as a Cryptocurrency-only merchant, Keys4Coins should apperceive this as able-bodied as anyone.
I beatific them assorted emails and submitted a admission through their armpit and got no acknowledgment for six days. They abandoned replied a day afterwards I tweeted at them. Now, I acquire no way of alive if they saw my cheep profile, accomplished I was a biographer and afresh absitively to advice me, or if they were aloof apathetic with responding. But either case is not ideal.
On the added side, aback things go smoothly, they go actual smoothly. Aback I acclimated my own wallet, it bound accustomed the transaction and provided me with the Steam key afterwards the aboriginal confirmation.
The blueprint is additionally aloft average. It has a quick appearance action that makes it accessible to analysis out amateur afterwards abrogation the folio you are on. This is accessible while blockage out the lower priced amateur that aren’t able-bodied known.
Their archive is additionally appealing decent. Keys4Coins has over 1100 Steam games/items, added than 200 Origin games/items, 140 uPlay games/items, a scattering of Giftcards, as able-bodied as offerings for Battle.net, Xbox Live and PSN.
In addition, they acquire abutment for a ample cardinal of currencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Monero, Litecoin, Dash and Vert. Supposedly, added alts can be acclimated through Shapeshift, but it is not bright how continued that will abide anatomic with ShapeShift’s new binding memberships. For Bitcoin Cash fans, they action 0 acceptance transactions, which is a nice touch.
Price wise, they are in the average of the pack. The items on auction are cheaper than on Steam or Green Man Gaming, but the discounts aren’t as ample as some added key sites. I compared ten amateur at accidental with its best absolute adversary on this list, Joltfun, and begin that Joltfun had bigger prices in every archetype I looked at. That aberration was minor, usually beneath than two dollars, but it was still there.
It is a abashment their chump abutment was so apathetic to respond. It took them six canicule from acquirement and abandoned afterwards I tweeted at them and possibly appear that I’m a biographer to respond. I can’t in acceptable acquainted acclaim the armpit if they aren’t activity to acknowledge to barter with issues. For that acumen alone, I acquire to put them a the basal of the list. They exhausted out G2A because aback you do things correctly, aggregate does go smoothly.
Pros: A few different blueprint features. Acceptable alternative of amateur and platforms. Assorted alts supported.
Cons: Prices are college than Joltfun. Chump abutment leaves a lot to be desired.
Daily Indie Bold is the one authority over from my 2015 annual (Groupees additionally still accepts bitcoin but its alternative for amateur is too dispersed to accommodate on this list).
It, like G2A additionally allows users to advertise keys, so you are at accident of the aloft CC artifice as you are with G2A. However, best of the acutely bargain amateur assume to be the blazon you acquisition in bundles bodies use for agenda farming. So the actuality that they are acutely bargain doesn’t necessarily beggarly they are stolen. That said, the abandoned acumen G2A gets affliction for this while Daily Indie Bold avoids it seems to be that G2A is a added acknowledged site.
With all that said, how is the experience? It is different compared to the added sites on this list. Daily Indie Bold requires you to buy DIG Points, with anniversary point apery a cent. You add a few bucks application bitcoin and afresh you use those credibility through their congenital wallet on the store. It is hardly bizarre but with prices for amateur as low as one cent, you can see why they do it. It massively cuts bottomward on transaction fees (or Acclaim Agenda and Paypal fees aback application fiat) if you acquirement at atomic a few dollars at a time.
Their acquittal processor performed fine, about afterwards it went through there was no adumbration on the armpit that I had purchased DIG points. It showed up afterwards a few confirmations, which is reasonable. But it would acquire been nice if there was a “pending” adjustment or commodity to let me apperceive that it was activity through. I had a bare adjustment folio and had to admiration if I messed commodity up until the DIG credibility showed up in my annual a few hours later.
Once you acquire your DIG points, it is quick and accessible to buy games. The bulk absolutely can’t be exhausted by any added armpit on this annual or really, anywhere on the web.
The downside is that its blueprint is horrible. While there is a chase function, there are no options to clarify after-effects by genre, price, absolution date or annihilation else. Aloof a boilerplate chase function. There is a area for “AAA Games” but no added options to advice you acquisition absorbing amateur in their sea of offerings.
If you don’t acquire a specific d in apperception to chase for, you are larboard with a continued annual of titles not curated in anyhow (other than the aloft AAA category). And aback a lot of the amateur are array shovelware, it can be a affliction to acquisition annihilation account buying.
All that said, I did administer to get Oxenfree, Little Racers: Street, Two Worlds II and a Boy and his Blob for a absolute of 390 DIG credibility ($3.90). I can’t brainstorm any abode accepting bigger prices than that.
Ultimately, Daily Indie Bold should be the abode you go aback you acquire a d in mind. Chase for it and if its not there, afresh move on to added sites. If it is there, you’ll acceptable get the best bulk on the web.
Pros: Amazingly low prices, acceptable chump support, DIG credibility cut bottomward on transaction fees.
Cons: Blueprint absolutely needs some work, library needs curation and the alternative could be better.

If AAA amateur are added your style, afresh Mmoga has a lot to offer. They acquire a huge alternative of Steam, uPlay, Origin and Battle.net games. They additionally acquire PSN, Xbox Live and Nintendo Switch cards, forth with in-game currencies for appealing abundant any d you can anticipate of. Mmoga alike has Bitcoin allowance cards, which makes it a applicable advantage to buy bitcoins rather than aloof unload them (albeit at a markup).
There are not a lot of things to animosity about Mmoga. Its blueprint is nice, its bulk is in band with the added sites on here. In a accidental 10 d allegory with Joltfun, they angry at bristles a piece. However, on four of the amateur area Joltfun was cheaper, it was decidedly so, oftentimes by over bristles dollars. Aback Mmoga had cheaper prices, it was usually by beneath than a dollar. In addition, during my (admittedly circumstantial) comparison, I begin a few times area Joltfun had amateur that Mmoga didn’t annual at all.
Mmoga’s acquittal processor, CoinGate, offers abutment for a few alts and accepts affairs instantly (0 confirmations). It was absolutely a amusement to buy PC Amateur with Bitcoin on Mmoga.
The abandoned acumen it isn’t college up on the annual is because the added two sites were alike better, but abandoned slightly. In fact, I advised authoritative the top three selections a three way tie. I absitively adjoin that and Mmoga was pushed to the third atom by the slimmest of margins.
Mmoga is a abundant ability for all bitcoin captivation gamers. The abandoned downsides are that the armpit feels a little cluttered, abnormally with its huge accent on in-game currencies (but if that is your thing, that ability be an advantage). And the key commitment adjustment was a little weird, they beatific me a JPEG of the Steam Key, acute me to blazon it out by hand. But that is the best accessory of quibbles. Mmoga should be on every abatement gamer’s annual of resources.
Pros: Awesome alternative of credibility and allowance cards, can buy bitcoin on the site, CoinGate is great.
Cons: The massive amounts of in-game bill can accomplish browsing feel cluttered. Alternative could be better.
When I started this article, I anticipation IndieGala was activity to be cardinal one. If I based it abandoned on my experience, it would acquire been cardinal one. It fell to the cardinal two atom because the Crypto-discounts it ahead offered were not meant to be permanent. That isn’t a huge accord because they never claimed those discounts would be consistently and it is still a abundant site. And I acquire been told that the cryptosales will be advancing aback from time to time, so accomplish abiding you watch out for them. But as things currently stand, I admired Joltfun a little more.
While added sites acquire lower prices on alone games, it is difficult to attempt with IndieGala’s array deals. Sure, there is some shovelware on them, but they usually acquire a few amateur account owning. And they additionally acquire a acceptable abundance with abysmal discounts over Steam and Green Man Gaming. Aback items are on sale, they oftentimes exhausted the added sites on this list. However, not aggregate is on auction at all times and aback they aren’t, IndieGala generally loses by massive margins. Still, if you are an adept buyer, the best discounts alfresco of Daily Indie Bold can be begin on IndieGala through a aggregate of bundles and sales.
Purchasing on IndieGala is an accessible process. They use Coinbase and their invoices don’t acquire a set time limit, so alike with my antecedent purchasing demography a continued time, ironically additionally due to Coinbase, the acquirement went through afterwards a hitch.
In addition, every key on IndieGala comes anon from the administrator of the d so by purchasing from IndieGala you are absolutely allowance the developer. I mentioned afore that I don’t apperception key-resellers like G2A, but if you are accession who does, that isn’t a affair with IndieGala.
When the crypto-discounts are in place, IndieGala is the best armpit to buy amateur application crypto. An added 15-30% off their already bargain prices is appealing amazing and makes PC gaming absolutely inexpensive. But all added times of the year, Joltfun takes the crown, by the bark of their teeth.
Pros: Array prices can’t be beat, actual aggressive prices aback amateur are on sale, supports the developers. Coinbase works abundant as a acquittal processor.
Cons: Crypto-only discounts aren’t alive at all times. Aback amateur aren’t on sale, they are generally at MSRP.
Joltfun is, absolution the pun, a lot of fun to attending at. They acutely adulation Bitcoin and abrasion it appropriate on their sleeves. They acquire a abnegation advanced and centermost “Inflationary money not accepted!” and they abandoned acquire Bitcoin.
While the abridgement of alts will about-face off some, for Bitcoin holders that isn’t a problem. Bigger still, they are acknowledging the ascent efforts by alms Lightning Network payments in accession to acceptable bitcoin payments. While Lightning Payments aren’t carefully all-important now, it is nice to acquire the advantage for when/if fees jump again.
Selection-wise they are in the average of the pack. There are over 1000 amateur accessible and there isn’t a lot of shovelware in that annual (unlike DailyIndieGame).
The blueprint could use some work. It has assorted categories, but the amateur central them aren’t consistently accompanying to the brand and the amounts in anniversary alter greatly. For an example, there are currently 299 amateur in “adventure” and abandoned two amateur in “flight” and those two amateur wouldn’t be classified as “flight games” as abundant as they are “games that acquire aerial in them” (the amateur in catechism are Star Wars: Battlefront II and Charge for Speed Payback).
It absolutely feels like activity to a mom and pop boutique and affairs amateur with bewitched internet money. That activity is added by their barebones and sometimes cool layout. It can be difficult to ascertain games, but it isn’t about as bad as DailyIndieGame. The prices are aggressive as well, with some titles costing added than on Mmoga and others advancing in hardly cheaper. Clashing Mmoga, Joltfun appears to be the assignment of one person, and he is a bitcoin fan to boot, so affairs from Joltfun absolutely feels like you are allowance the Bitcoin economy, rather than giving your bitcoins to a aggregation who is acceptable to cash them all immediately.
I contacted the buyer and he told me that it is absolutely a one-man operation. In addition, he says he abandoned sells the minimum bulk of bitcoin bare to about-face a accumulation and keeps the rest, so your acquirement won’t absolutely go appear active the bulk bottomward (even better, if you alter the acclimated bitcoins by purchasing more, you’ll absolutely be accidental to an advancement motion on the price).
Its acquittal processor (for approved Bitcoin purchases) is additionally great. BTCPayServer is abundant at befitting fees low, alike aback the mempool is growing.
There are times aback IndieGala is bigger and Daily Indie Bold can accommodate the best prices on the amateur they have. But Joltfun takes the acme based on its selection, all-embracing prices and user support.
Pros: Awesome prices, buyer is a accurate adherent of Bitcoin, Lightning Network support, Acceptable acquittal processor for on-chain transactions.
Cons: Blueprint needs work.
