Introducing payment via cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, LTC,...)

the only "Problem" with cryptocurrencies is they take some transaction costs
considering allods grants the player virtual goods for their donation anyway which means allods has no costs creating these virtual goods it would be possible to still give a player the "full" amout of BC for their order
given the fact is a huge company with lots of workers its likely there will be some who are good with these things too (like converting the virtual curency to USD / RUB / EUR whatever and implementing a payment-system)

this would completely eliminate all problems with "undo payment", greedy 3rd parties and so on
(everyone who has experience with payment-services knows how much % they take, how complicated things can get with them especially if they are like "hey, lets freeze your funds because we feel like it" and how silly it is you need a lawyer just to get what is yours...)

and last but not least, this would bring allods to the headlines of many many newssites... "GAME ACCEPTING BITCOIN AS PAYMENT" and so on... ppl still go crazy about this topic and it would be free advertising
(read about the company which added "Blockchain" to their name and stock of it rocketed like crazy)

short summary:
- Add Cryptocurency payment
- get free advertisement due to "cryptohype" on internetmedia
- eliminate payment-problems with "regular" systems for all tx made with crypto

- worker who implements paymentsystem / exchange crypto/FIAT
- worker who spreads the word a bit so the news reach the online-media

slight joke (with a grain of likely truth):
"the one who forwards this to the executive-floor will get promoted :P"

Although everyone can see the crypto coin transactions, but they aren't stable having significant ups and downs, and they've got a big hit recently as many sites stopped dealing with them.
so I don't think they will make it happen actually unless:
a.) They consider this as an advertising material (just like black Friday sales for big companies).
b.) There was a instant-real-time converter from crypto to real currency.

the fluctuation is given indeed; however if you sell virtual good this has little impact
since this most likely wont replace the transactions of existing players but allocates new players (which had before not considered donating!) its still a gain

and there is a way of "Instant converting" by 1 click; at least for a company its without a problem
just make an account at one of the big exchanges and link it to a regular bankaccount
its somehow silly how this works as they want an ID for all the KYC and AML crap but if you have a public company already it does not matter + your companys id is known to the other financial partners already anyway so you dont reveal anything new

so while this way of conversion is questionable for private ppl who rightfully want to keep their identity protected from 3rd parties its well working for a public company :thumbup:
