The price of bitcoin has been declining, dropping as low as $173 last Wednesday, according to stats from CoinDesk
. At the time of publication, the volatile cryptocurrency was back up to about $230.
With the price of bitcoin sinking, are the limited number of companies that were accepting bitcoin as a form of payment going to stop taking bitcoin? Three major companies that spoke to Business Insider say they plan to continue accepting bitcoin as a form of payment.
A spokesperson from Expedia, which began accepting the cryptocurrency as a form of payment over the summer
, told Business Insider it will continue to accept bitcoin as a form of payment for hotels purchased on Expedia.com.
"All bitcoin transactions are handled through the company's partnership with Coinbase, a third-party bitcoin payment processor who handles the processing and transfer of actual bitcoin funds directly with Expedia's customers," the Expedia spokesperson said.
