Microsoft has begun to accept Bitcoin Cash for games, Xboxes, apps and other items found in their online store.

Bitcoin Cash payments are typically credited instantly. Some 700,000 apps area available for purchase using this cryptocurrency method.

Pioneers in the space, including Bitcoin.com founder Roger Ver and Coingeek.com founder Calvin Ayre, believe that Bitcoin Cash is what Bitcoin (BTC) was initially intended to be prior to a fork that occurred this past summer.

Ayre will be hosting a cryptocurrency conference this May in Hong Kong that will focus heavily on Bitcoin Cash. 

Speakers include Expedia’s Michael Wood, Roger Ver and Dr Craig Wright (creator of Bitcoin) as well as Jerry Chan, SBI Crypto’s Chief Strategy Officer.
