Wayi International claims to be first in Taiwan to take bitcoins

    Wayi International Digital Entertainment, an online gaming company, said its online store would start taking bitcoins as a form of payment next year, claiming to be the first company in Taiwan to accept the digital currency, local media said. 

    Wayi does not yet own any bitcoins. However, once the company has accumulated this online currency, it will then start selling them to the public. The currency will be able to be exchanged into New Taiwan dollars. There will be a 3 percent transaction fee for exchanges conducted through WMall, the company said.
