Want to learn game development quickly but don't want to pay with credit card or PayPal.

I don't think serious companies allow BTC because it's a virtual currency, thus unstable. Also it's Valve deciding on things like this, not Crytek.

You could apply to one of the jobs Crytek has posted. I imagine that would be the quickest way to learn possible.

All our payment services are handled via Steam, so once Steam accepts Bitcoin for payment, maybe we can as well.
But for now, I don't think Valve has any such plan.

This whole thread made me think of this recent marketing ploy.
