Bitcoin, the "currency of the Internet," is now accepted by Zynga, whose FarmVille franchise also celebrates the economic ideal of paying real cash to acquire completely abstract commodities.
Zynga said very early this morning it was beginning a Bitcoin test using BitPay, a "leading Bitcoin service provider," to pay for virtual crap in FarmVille 2, CastleVille, ChefVille, CoasterVille, CityVille, and more.
You can see the payment in action in that video above. The announcement was made in a post to the Bitcoin subreddit.
"Zynga is always working to improve our customer experience by incorporating player feedback into our games," the statement said. "We look forward to hearing from our players about the Bitcoin test so we can continue in our efforts to provide the best possible gaming experience."
If you're wondering what the hell Bitcoin is, no it is not a video game. This post by our friends at Gizmodo explains it best, but it's basically a currency not controlled by any government. That makes it extremely useful for buying stuff your government doesn't want you to buy, whether that's goods from a nation under embargo or just some good, good drugs.
