Humble Bundle, the popular video game and ebook retailer has ceased Bitcoin payments for its monthly bundle, starting with this month’s ‘Humble Jumbo Bundle 6’. It is not yet clear what the reasoning behind this decision was.
When asked by Twitter user, @iankremer on March 3rd, if the support account would post again when they had fixed the issue, Humble Bundle responded in the affirmative:
An amendment to the footer on the bundle’s page then appeared soon after, saying, “Bitcoin payments have been disabled for the Humble Jumbo Bundle 6.”
A comment from Reddit user, /u/coinbase-john, a CoinbaseCT r: 2 support agent, cryptically suggested this may be the case:
“The issue referenced in that tweet was fixed the next day; that is not why they have disabled bitcoin payments.
– John, Coinbase Support”
Another Reddit user, /u/dooglus, said:
“I’ve asked them about this before and they told me it’s to do with licensing. Accepting Bitcoin means they can’t limit distribution by country which some of their content providers demand.”
CoinTelegraph approached Humble Bundle for comment, but has yet to receive a response. This article will be updated if and when they reply.
