Microsoft company has added a digital asset Bitcoin (BTC) to the list of currencies in the Microsoft Office Excel.
According to the user of the website Reddit, Bitcoin appeared in the program three years ago, however, it was noticed only now. There are no BTC in the 2013 version of the program, apparently, the coin was integrated into Microsoft Office 2016.
In 2017, the Unicode Bitcoin U+20BF symbol was created. However, uniform standards for the coin denomination have not yet been adopted. In most cases, Satoshi’s unit is used, which is one hundred millionth of Bitcoin (0.00000001 BTC).
Microsoft is seriously interested in virtual currencies and blockchain technology. On May 13 of this year, the company published a description of the ION (Identity Overlay Network), which will be launched on the Bitcoin blockchain. ION allows you to create and store a digital identity in a decentralized network. The ID can be used to validate data and transactions on the Internet. Several large companies (Equinix and Civic) have already started testing ION.
According to experts, the growth of BTC rate to $8,800 is due to the news about the launch of the Microsoft platform in the Bitcoin network and that eBay will start accepting cryptocurrency as payment for goods. However, all attentive people noticed the planned nature of the asset value pump; moreover, press stated that there are no objective reasons for the rise in the price of the coin.
