CoinPoint rocked the night away in its successful Bitcoin Cash Party at Tapa Tapa Bar near Excel Conference Centre in London last February 8, 2018. Dr. Craig Wright of nChain and English professional snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan joined the party, along with nearly 200 attendees composed of gaming executives and crypto industry leaders from around the world.
The CoinPoint Bitcoin Cash Party is a celebration of the use of Bitcoin Cash as a sustainable and innovative electronic cash system for faster, safer, and more efficient global transactions. Everyone in the party was asked to download a Bitcoin.com wallet to receive free Bitcoin Cash, which they promptly redeemed to get free drinks at the bar.
“This event is part of our educational strategy with the aim of showing that Bitcoin Cash is the cryptocurrency that can be used for payments globally,” said Eilon Arad, CoinPoint’s Director of Business Development based in Manila, Philippines, in an interview.
The Bitcoin.com-sponsored event by CoinPoint, the leading cryptocurrencies and Blockchain agency, showcased the simple, fast, and reliable approach of Bitcoin Cash in various channels, including micropayments and e-commerce.
“The party was a huge success hitting the goals of both business and pleasure as well as bringing the capabilities of Bitcoin Cash as a peer to peer cash as well as CoinPoint’s as a market leader for cryptocurrency marketing agency,” said Oron Barber, CoinPoint’s CEO based in Bulgaria.
Besides drinks, music, and Bitcoin Cash, BetterBetting Foundation CEO Adriaan Brink announced in the party the BetterBetting ICO winner of a Ronnie O’Sullivan-signed snooker cue. During Brink’s speech, which celebrated the end of a successful ICO supported by CoinPoint, he revealed that the next step would be to switch their peer-to-peer betting technology, using smart contracts, to Bitcoin Cash once it is made available.
The CoinPoint Bitcoin Cash Party was a highly anticipated VIP event covered by the team of CoinGeek, CoinChoose, iGaming Business, and other global media outlets.
Meanwhile, CoinPoint will launch several Bitcoin Cash-related platforms that aim to improve merchant and user adoption as well as education of the market.

Iranian Government Proposes for New Cryptocurrency Mining Regulations
The Cabinet of Iran has proposed for new cryptocurrency mining regulations in Iran, which include annual licensing for cryptocurrency miners.
Based on the proposal, licensed and registered cryptocurrency miners will be required to submit information such as their list of business activities, the predicted value of their investments, current employment status, rental agreements for the space itself, value of their mining equipment and the duration of the mining project. The license will need to be renewed every year.
The Iranian mining industry has grown dramatically over the past two years. One anonymous source in Tehran told CoinDesk that most miners he knows are “under the radar” and import equipment through the black market, without paying taxes.
The Central Bank of Iran finally recognised the grassroots industry and promised a lawful licensing procedure in July 2019. The pending proposal was approved by Reza Rahmani, Iran’s Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade. The Iranian mining licenses would only apply to miners with equipment that requires 30 kilowatts, which might exclude homemade mining equipment or small operations.
“It’s obvious that the power industry here in Iran, it’s not a private business, it’s from the government. They need to figure out how to balance mining [operations] so that they wouldn’t harm the power grid. If there’s a constant, a continuous consumption of electricity you can also make new power plants or assign power plants to this,” an anonymous source said.
Bitcoin Confirmed As New Sleeve Partner of Watford FC
The Bitcoin logo will appear on the shirt sleeve of Watford FC this season, as part of an educational drive led by the innovative sports betting brand Sportsbet.io.
The logo is part of a wider campaign to improve awareness around Bitcoin and educate the public on the benefits of using cryptocurrencies.
It is led by Watford FC’s primary shirt sponsor, Sportsbet.io, which announced a landmark deal with the Hornets team in June.
Justin Le Brocque, Head of Marketing at Sportsbet.io, said: “The crypto community have been hugely supportive of us since we began, so putting the Bitcoin logo on the sleeve felt like a fun way to give something back while also showing them our support.”
The sponsorship will be crowd-funded, allowing anyone who holds Bitcoin the exclusive opportunity to share in the perks granted to Watford FC sponsors. Contributors can bid for public LED space shown live during matches, use of the Bitcoin box for eight people and exclusive Watford FC merchandise.
“Some of the biggest challenges we and others like us face is raising awareness, dispelling common myths around cryptos and educating the public on the advantages and opportunities presented by cryptocurrencies,” added Le Brocque.
“Our partnership with Watford marks a major disruption in the world of traditional sports sponsorship, and by adding the Bitcoin logo we hope this world’s first partnership will create even more buzz around cryptocurrencies.”
Scott Duxbury, Hornets’ Chairman & CEO, added: “Placing the Bitcoin logo on a Premier League shirt is something that challenges the accepted norm. We’re excited about the partnerships and the potential for new global conversations that it could help start for our club.”
To celebrate the Bitcoin sponsorship with all Bitcoin holders, Sportsbet.io is also giving away a 2 mbtc Free Bet to all Sportsbet.io players if Watford scores against Arsenal this coming Sunday. More information on the amazing offer can be found https://sportsbet.io/promotions/free-bet-giveaway.
Last month, Sportsbet.io announced a pioneering three-year partnership with Watford, marking the first time a company known for blockchain and cryptocurrency expertise had appeared on the front of a Premier League shirt.
The announcement was accompanied by the launch of Sportsbet.io’s ‘Know No Borders’ campaign, which highlights the brand’s commitment to putting players at the heart of the action, no matter their country, sport, team or currency.
Sportsbet.io accepts a range of fiat and cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, to deliver the very best in fun, fast and fair gaming.
