Expedia joins Bitcoin bandwagon


Two weeks after Dish Network announced it'll accept Bitcoin (BITCN,BTCS), and five months after Overstock did so, Expedia has done the same.

Not surprisingly, the online travel giant doesn't expect huge initial volumes. But its size - 2013 gross bookings totaled $39.4B - makes its vote of confidence a big one.

Last month, eBay CEO John Donahoe suggested PayPal will eventually support the virtual currency, but didn't give an ETA.

Coinbase currently shows a bid-ask spread of $625.46-$626.49.

    Very happy for the Bitcoin faithful, but it doesn't do me much good unless it moves my BTCS stock at least a little.
