Of course, several Twitter users started to ask for other cryptocurrencies like Nano, Bitcoin or Ripple.
In another tweet, the company wrote:
“The number of answers around this news makes us very happy. You are kept informed of the arrival of the payment. The DSI goblins are working on it right now. Good luck to them.”
Apparently, the company has decided to accept Ether due to the fact that its competitors do not accept it. Instead, they accept Bitcoin, that in the past months has been suffering from high fees (something that is changing now). In this way, they will be one of the first tech shops that will accept Ether as a payment option.
Ethereum is slightly different to Bitcoin. The network is used for developers to create dapps and other applications. At the same time, Ether works as the natural cryptocurrency of the environment connecting developers and users all over the world.
Ether could have been chosen due to the fact that it has low fees and the transaction takes place in just some seconds, compared to Bitcoin. But some time ago, Ethereum faced several problems with its network due to the congestion caused by cryptokitties.
Cryptokitties, as we wrote in the past, is an Ethereum-based digital game that has created fans all over the world that buy and sell kitty cards for ETH. At the moment, the most expensive transaction was when someone bought a cat with ID 18 for 253 ETH. The purchase has been made on December the 12th, 2017, and it would be worth $175,000 dollars at current values.
