Betting on Crypto: How Crypto Casinos are Driving Mainstream Adoption

Betting on Crypto: How Crypto Casinos are Driving Mainstream Adoption
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Author: Scott Major, CCO, Transact365

In the digital age, two revolutionary trends are converging to reshape the landscape of financial entertainment: cryptocurrencies and online gambling. At the forefront of this intersection are crypto casinos, innovative platforms that are not only leveraging blockchain technology but also driving the widespread adoption of digital currencies.

By integrating digital assets into an engaging and familiar activity like gambling, crypto casinos are introducing a wider audience to the practical uses of blockchain technology. Conversely, the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies is attracting more users to online gambling platforms, expanding the reach of such platforms to tech-savvy individuals who prioritise privacy and decentralisation.

Crypto Casinos: Pioneering Adoption

Crypto casinos represent a new frontier in the gambling industry, leveraging blockchain technology to offer players a secure, transparent, and decentralised gaming experience. By accepting cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others, these platforms provide users with unparalleled privacy, faster transactions, and lower fees compared to traditional fiat currency casinos. This alignment with the ethos of decentralisation and financial sovereignty inherent in cryptocurrencies has attracted a growing number of tech-savvy users and early adopters to the world of online gambling.

Moreover, crypto casinos are not just leveraging cryptocurrencies; they are actively promoting their adoption. In fact, crypto casinos are expected to become more mainstream by the end of 2024.  Players who may have been previously unfamiliar with digital assets are now acquiring and using them for entertainment purposes, thereby integrating cryptocurrencies into their everyday lives. This increased exposure to cryptocurrencies through gambling fosters a deeper understanding and acceptance for their utility and benefits beyond the gaming sphere. Therefore, as cryptocurrencies gain wider acceptance, more traditional gamblers are likely to explore crypto gambling options. This trend could expand the market share of crypto casinos within the overall online gambling industry.

The Ripple Effect: Cryptocurrencies and Online Gambling

Cryptocurrencies are also revolutionising the online gambling industry by addressing long-standing challenges related to payment processing. One of the critical barriers for traditional online casinos has been the inefficiency for certain underbanked sectors and at times costliness of payment solutions –  exacerbated by stringent regulations and geographical limitations. Cryptocurrencies circumvent these hurdles by offering a decentralised payment method that operates across borders with minimal fees and swift transaction times.

An efficient payment solution is paramount to maximising the synergy between cryptocurrencies and online gambling. Crypto casinos have capitalised on blockchain technology’s ability to facilitate instant and secure transactions, ensuring seamless deposits and withdrawals for players worldwide. This efficiency not only enhances the user experience but also expands market reach by attracting players from regions where traditional banking systems may be unreliable or inaccessible.

Harnessing Efficiency for Growth

By streamlining financial transactions through blockchain technology, crypto casinos are able to offer competitive advantages that resonate with today’s digital-first consumers. This includes faster payouts, reduced transaction fees, and heightened security measures that inspire trust and confidence among players.

The rise of crypto casinos is not merely a trend but a transformative force that is propelling the adoption of cryptocurrencies and reshaping the online gambling industry. By embracing blockchain technology and user-friendly crypto and local payment solutions, these platforms are fostering a symbiotic relationship that not only benefits both industries but most importantly the customers alike.

Navigating Bitcoin’s Impact: SOFTSWISS’ iGaming Industry Overview

Published

on

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

In March 2024, Bitcoin soared to a historical high, nearing 70,000 euro per coin. How does this impact the iGaming market? Being a tech company with over 15 years of experience and an innovator in crypto iGaming software development, SOFTSWISS shares anticipations in its quarterly crypto analysis.

Over 220 brands powered by the company engaged in crypto transactions during the first quarter of 2024, which is 12% higher than the previous quarter. SOFTSWISS experts analyse the data gathered from crypto-friendly brands by employing extrapolation, comparative, and correlative analysis.

 

iGaming Market Overview: Unveiling Anticipated Growth

The size of the global online gambling and sports betting industry is expected to rise significantly and exceed 170 billion euro by 2032, according to Statista. Based on SOFTSWISS data, the iGaming market has demonstrated a stable pattern of growth year after year.

In absolute terms in euro, the Total Bet Sum grew by 5.8% in the first quarter of the year compared to the last quarter of 2023. Analysing the year-on-year increase, comparing Q1’24 with Q1’23, the growth is more impressive, showcasing a 47.2% boost.

Simultaneously, the Total Bet Count, both fiat and crypto, displayed a slightly larger gain in the first quarter of 2024 compared to the previous quarter, surpassing 6.1%. The indicator’s year-on-year boost is much more notable, revealing a 57.2% increase.

The popularity of iGaming in recent years has been fuelled by its global reach and accessibility due to constant technological advancements. On one hand, the quality of internet connectivity continues to rise, while on the other, new payment methods are emerging, simplifying payment procedures.

The in-depth quarterly analysis, ongoing since the beginning of 2022, reveals that fiat bets are undergoing more substantial growth compared to crypto bets. In Q1’24, the Fiat Bet Sum increased by 6.9% compared to Q4’23, while the rise of Crypto Bet Sum was at 2.4%.

 

The more active growth of fiat bets led to a slight decrease in the share of crypto. In the first quarter of 2024, the crypto share in the Total Bets Sum settled at 24.4%, decreasing by 0.8 percentage points (p.p) compared to the last quarter of 2023.

 

What is the State of Crypto in iGaming?

Analysing crypto bets, it is crucial to highlight that almost 93% of them are facilitated through the in-game currency conversion tool, which is gaining traction. This mechanism allows operators to engage players with cryptocurrency assets in games initially tailored for fiat only. Operators that adopt such options are gaining more competitive advantages in the market.

While the Q1’2024 Crypto Bet Sum shows a moderate 2.4% growth compared to the previous quarter, the year-on-year analysis demonstrates a 20.8% increase. The Crypto Bet Count remained unchanged in Q1’24 compared to the previous quarter’s indicator. Simultaneously, the metric increased by 21.3% year-on-year. The figures speak volumes, showcasing a consistent interest among players in crypto gaming.

“The lack of a substantial increase in the number of crypto bets during Q1’24 can be partly attributed to the significant rise of the Bitcoin exchange rate during this period, leading players to be more cautious with their crypto bets.  This trend mirrors the situation in the first quarter of the previous year when the Bitcoin exchange rate surged following a decline at the end of 2022,” comments Vitali Matsukevich, Chief Operating Officer at SOFTSWISS.

 

What Distinguishes the Average Crypto Bet?

The average crypto bet increased to 1.71 euro in the first quarter of the year from 1.66 euro in the last quarter of 2023. This growth correlates with a significant strengthening of the Bitcoin rate during the first quarter of 2024.

The average fiat bet remained steady at around 0.81 euro in Q1’24 and Q4’23. The average total bet stayed constant since the second half of the previous year and is equal to 0.93 euro.

 

Notably, the average crypto bet is double that of fiat. This indicates that digital currencies are preferred by higher-income players.


Why Did Bitcoin’s Share Drop?

The Top Five most operated digital coins in iGaming have remained stable during the last two years with minor changes in ranking order. The top still includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Tether.

 

In Q1 2024, Bitcoin experienced a significant decline of 9.4 p.p. compared to Q4 2023. This could be attributed to the bolstering Bitcoin exchange rate and players exercising a more cautious approach towards it.

In contrast, the shares of other digital coins have increased. Ethereum and Litecoin showed growth of 4.0 p.p. and 3.8 p.p., respectively, during the same period. Simultaneously, Dogecoin rose to fourth place in the ranking, leaving Tether behind.

Vitali Matsukevich, Chief Operating Officer at SOFTSWISS, summarises: “The benefits of employing digital currencies, such as fast transactions and anonymity, still attract many players. Embracing cryptocurrencies in iGaming can boost operator profits despite their volatile nature.

As the Bitcoin rate is expected to strengthen after the Bitcoin Halving, the average crypto bet and projected gains may see a notable impact. During such promising times, it is crucial to have reliable and experienced partners to navigate the path to success.”
