Is this kind of news now making e-currency an acceptable form of payment?

One of the world's largest online travel agencies, Expedia, has become the latest company to accept Bitcoin transactions as a form of payment.

The firm will initially accept the virtual currency for hotel bookings only, and is currently restricting the trial to its US site.

But one Bitcoin watcher told the BBC this was "a big move" for the currency. Expedia Decides to accept Bitcoins For Hotel Transactions [bbc.co.uk]
