Microsoft’s virtual currency was not widely embraced when it first hit the market, but it is now becoming a household name.
According to a recent report from the Washington Post, it’s gaining in popularity among people who have a passion for computers and technology.
The paper reports that more than 3.7 million people are using virtual currency in the United States, and that the average amount of money spent on it is $13.5 per transaction.
And although the digital currency is not backed by any government, it has been used to buy items from retailers like Walmart and Toys R Us.
The Post report also found that more people are now using virtual currencies to buy drugs and other items online than ever before.
The article notes that more and more people have been adopting virtual currency to spend on their favorite goods online, with some finding the use of virtual currency is now commonplace.
However, the report also highlights that many people are skeptical about the use and value of virtual currencies and are turning to traditional methods of payment like cash, debit cards, and credit cards.
