€100 million tournament turnover would be biggest return in crypto betting history

 

28th June, 2018 – Sportsbet.io is predicting record turnover of more than 20,000 Bitcoin (€100 million) in World Cup bets on its leading Bitcoin-led sportsbook after taking more than 9000 BTC (€46m) at the halfway stage of the tournament.

With the tournament on the verge of the knockout stages with 44 games played and 20 to go including several crunch group fixtures, Sportsbet.io continues to be a hive of activity with crypto punters backing their respective nations in their droves.

This year’s tournament is the first to allow global customers to bet on football using both cryptocurrency and fiat money on the site across several denominations including euros.  Sportsbet.io customers are relishing the opportunity with the sportsbook offering a huge selection of markets to suit every player’s tastes, plus the extensive World Cup offering which includes daily bet boosts, outright and casino offers.

Sportsbet.io has multiple winners Brazil and Spain, the silky-skilled masters of tiki-taka soccer, down as joint favourites to lift the coveted gold trophy in two weeks’ time.

Brazil, Spain and Germany dominate the outrights market and are the three best backed nations with crypto punters. Almost 50% of the money has so far been placed on the joint favourites with Germany in third place with just under 10% of total outright bets.

Pre-live singles bets have been the most popular according to Sportsbet.io traders, with Germany versus Sweden, Brazil versus Switzerland and this week’s controversial VAR Group B decider pitting Iran against Portugal, the three most backed matches in the tournament so far.

Sportsbet.io’s Asian handicap markets and new cash out function have also proven extremely popular among bettors. Belgium versus Tunisia saw the biggest World Cup win so far, the lucky bettor seized the opportunity with a handicap bet of -1.5 and came away with a cool win of €178,749.

Joe McCallum, Director of sportsbook at Sportsbet.io, said: “This tournament has been way above our expectations both in terms of the nail-biting action and VAR controversy on the pitch and how quickly customers are taking to betting in Bitcoin across the site.

“This is the first crypto betting World Cup, and if the first half of the tournament is anything to go by then we are expecting even more pulse-racing excitement in the weeks to come.”

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

PartnerMatrix broadens its market reach by signing a referral agreement with DAOGroup, a blockchain solutions provider. DAOGroup will now direct its DAOWallet clients to PartnerMatrix’s affiliate and agent management solution.

DAOGroup’s premier product is DAOWallet, an advanced cryptocurrency-fiat gateway with industry-leading features key to the iGaming sector. Through the new partnership with PartnerMatrix, DAOGroup will also offer the most advanced affiliate and agent management solutions for all its DAOWallet clients.

Levon Nikoghosyan, CEO of PartnerMatrix, shares: “This is another step PartnerMatrix takes towards our goal of reaching wider markets, and our team is ready and excited for the opportunity to work with DAOWallet clients. DAOGroup has already established itself as a strong competitor even for large market contestants. I see huge potential in their upcoming platform, betting solutions, and games, and with DAOWallet already launched and highly-regarded in the market, the future looks bright.”

Glen Bullen, CCO of DAOGroup, comments: “PartnerMatrix offers the industry’s best affiliate management system, while DAOWallet delivers the industry’s best cryptocurrency-fiat gateway. So, we have full confidence in referring clients who have selected to partner with us over to PartnerMatrix, as we both share the same drive to support our clients with the best possible products and solutions.”

Glen Bullen shares that affiliates are the lifeblood of the iGaming industry and a vital driver for player acquisition and increased revenue: “iGaming is a highly-competitive space, and operators must constantly ensure they are delivering on all fronts, and differentiating themselves with the very best products and support.”

“Just as it is now vital to include a cryptocurrency option like DAOWallet in their payments offering, to ensure they are meeting the requirements of all players across all markets, an operator must ensure they are supporting their affiliates and agents with the very best management tools, like PartnerMatrix delivers, to ensure the long-term growth of that vital network. No supplier or operator can ever rest on their laurels, or their affiliates, players and partners will just go elsewhere.”

Bitcoin Gaming Pioneer Cloudbet Marks Stablecoin Foray With Tether Launch

Bitcoin Gaming Pioneer Cloudbet Marks Stablecoin Foray With Tether Launch
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Cloudbet, the pioneering crypto sportsbook and casino, has added USD Tether to the portfolio of coins available to its customers, marking the operator’s first foray into stablecoin betting.

After a month of testing with a small group of players, Cloudbet has now enabled all of its customers to deposit, withdraw and bet with USDT, the digital token whose value is linked to the U.S. dollar.

New players who deposit USDT with Cloudbet are eligible for a welcome bonus of up to 1000 USDT. Customers can buy the coin on the site with their credit cards or Apple Pay.

Since launching in 2013, Cloudbet has built a well-earned reputation as a trusted bitcoin operator that added Bitcoin Cash in early 2018 and Ethereum earlier this year. USDT and Ethereum are among the host of new features on Cloudbet’s new website, which the company launched at the end of April.

Other feature additions include UFC in-play betting, new language options and a comprehensive esports vertical, all aimed at making Cloudbet’s all-round offering a definitive market leader in crypto gaming.”We’ve accelerated our feature rollouts tremendously, thanks to the systems and processes we put in place to build the new website,” a Cloudbet spokesman said. “The market can look forward to many more new features and new coins in the coming months.”

Stablecoins such as USDT have been put forward as a solution for players seeking to protect the value of their cryptocurrency winnings from the extreme fluctuations in price experienced by holders of non-stablecoins.

Because its value is fixed on a 1-to-1 basis with the USD, the fiat value of winnings in Tether does not fluctuate along with market prices. For this reason, stablecoins have been offered up as the key to winning over a more fiat-friendly audience to experience the benefits of cryptocurrency gaming.

“Since launch, a fundamental part of our philosophy has been about empowering players with technologies that solve their problems,” Cloudbet’s spokesman said. “USDT and stablecoins are an extension of that.”

Cloudbet’s sportsbook offers the best prices and highest limits on a multitude of global sporting markets around the world, while the Cloudbet casino has hundreds of slots and live-dealer table games.
