Bitcoin Accepted by a Major Bank

Barclays to Become the First Major Bank to Accept Bitcoin [Updated]

Barclays, one of the the UK's largest banks, will begin to accept Bitcoin later this year. Unless another high street bank rushes to accept Bitcoin, Barclays is set to become the first major bank in the UK, US, and Europe to accept Bitcoin. At the time of publishing, one bitcoin (BTC) is worth about £150 or €204.
