A lot of my clients are current employees of Blizzard, as well as the previous owner of Blizzard.  I can reach out to a few of them and see if I can get the question in front of the right people Smiley
Can you tell us who are you? What kind of job do you have?

I can't post their names, but I am in real estate finance, so some of them were referred to me, and  then I just started working  one after another.   I helped a lot of them finance their first homes.  Their positions ranged from programmers, to managers, to HR.

I've got an underlying question - does your company accept bitcoin payments?  If that has happened, great, I've got nothing more to add, but if they don't, and you can get them to, then those contacts at blizzard would have a real world example of 'how implementing bitcoin' could have benefitted them (they could of used it to finance their real estate investing through you)

WoW gold was my first experience with digital currency. All the gold scammers i.e IGN have since moved on to bigger and better things i.e. Bitcoin.

Blizzard is going need a lot of convincing to take BTC knowing that all the scammers that leeched off them are now into BTC.

If I were a betting man, I'd imagine blizzard will take nxt before btc.

Just look at these two projects from the nxt world.

A horizontal processor development and mmog company
http://www.jinnlabs.com/

and
Decentralized Online Roleplaying Currency Studio
http://www.dorcsgames.com/

these could be future competitors using nxt blockchain technology and if they do well then more will follow

My company unfortunately does not accept BTC.   BTC hasn't really made its way to the home lending world yet.  Most home purchases that have been done with BTC have been purchased in 100% BTC.   Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, nor other major investors, have not yet allowed BTC to be used as liquid assets.

I am trying to get it so that BTC can be used to purchase home appraisals (which range from $395-$650), depending on the value of your home, and how many units it is...

Just tell them to get a Bitpay account so you pay in Bitcoin and they receive USD. Any business can understand USD Money even if they have never heard of Bitcoin. Or email Gyft to ask for them to offer Blizzard gift cards and pay with Bitcoin that way. Also if they could sell through gamestop you can use Bitcoin through the Gyft app for gamestop.

I think one of the problem is fluctuation in currency exchange rate. Btc price is so unpredictable. They are in gaming business so definitely direct payment in fiat take off the fx risk
