Integration will host five cryptocurrency swaps at launch

FunFair, the leading Isle of Man-licensed blockchain gaming platform, has gone live with cryptocurrency exchange Changelly to deliver numerous new cryptocurrency payment options.

As part of its mission to bring blockchain gaming to the masses, FunFair has integrated Changelly’s exchange API into its recently launched FunFair Wallet to allow players to swap various cryptocurrencies for its gambling token, FUN.

Registered players will now be able to bring the likes of Bitcoin, Tron and Litecoin to one of its partner casinos, CasinoFair and CryptoCasino, and trade for FUN without leaving the platform or needing third-party exchange accounts.

This will further improve the customer journey, significantly reducing friction between sign-up and gameplay, while opening up FunFair-powered casinos to gamblers who may not hold FUN but want to experience the first-class gaming experience that the platform delivers.

With five cryptocurrency funding options at launch and more to come after, as well as strong liquidity and instant transactions, Changelly’s innovative exchange API has been chosen to deliver the seamless experience that FunFair strives for.

Fred Kessler, CPO at FunFair Technologies Europe Ltd: “Integrating Changelly’s user-friendly exchange will open up our platform to a vast new audience of crypto-holders and allow for a far superior onboarding journey.

“To date, players must own FUN to play, but this new partnership of choice will allow for holders of the likes of Bitcoin to experience the best in blockchain gaming without the added hurdle of heading off-site to use a crypto exchange.”

Eric Benz, CEO at Changelly: “Funfair is a project I have been following for the past couple years and the team behind it is one of the best from both the gaming and crypto industries.

“I look forward to the integration of the Changelly API as this will benefit both customers and the partner companies who will utilise the FunFair Wallet.”

Following the launch of FunFair’s ‘any browser, any device’ wallet and second-gen platform, the added integration of Changelly’s exchange will confirm the supplier’s position as the most user-friendly blockchain casino platform around.
