Expedia will now accept Bitcoin as payment for hotel reservations, the company announced in a press release Wednesday. The company will be using Coinbase to process the Bitcoin payments, converting them immediately into US dollars.
This is the same vendor used by Overstock and Dish to process their Bitcoin payments.
