Cloudbet’s Bitcoin Wagers Soar A Whopping 600% Thanks to World Cup
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Bitcoin is proving to be a truly global currency for a truly global game, according to figures released by leading crypto sportsbook ​Cloudbet​.

Over the first 10 days of the World Cup in Russia, ​Cloudbet has seen the number of bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash bets soar by 600% from the same period immediately before the start of soccer’s premier competition. The platform has drawn tournament-related wagers from over 100 countries, according to ​Mirio Mella, Cloudbet’s Head of Acquisition.

Established in 2013, Cloudbet is one of the few operators in the crypto-gaming space to offer ​World Cup bitcoin betting ​for a second straight tournament. Aside from the obvious difference in the coin’s price and the phenomenal leaps in adoption since Brazil 2014, the surge in betting firmly underlines that bitcoin betting has come of age in Russia.

Crypto holders are looking to grow their coin stack and add even more excitement to the action,” Mella said. “Drawing so many bets from all over the world ​demonstrates a global acceptance of bitcoin as a convenient and practical medium for betting.

Plenty of new Cloudbet customers will have no doubt been attracted by the generous 6.5mBTC risk-free bet ​currently available for the World Cup. For crypto enthusiasts new to betting or experienced bettors new to crypto, a ​risk-free bet​is the perfect incentive to try bitcoin betting for the first time.

Cloudbet’s reputation as a trustworthy sportsbook is one reason behind its World Cup success, but there are other key factors: the focus on offering, choice of currencies, and the best value odds among bitcoin sportsbooks – with margins of just 2.5%.

The operator also has guaranteed ​World Cup betting limits​ of 20BTC per game, and there have been plenty of whales testing those limits. The games involving established sides like Germany, Brazil and Argentina in particular have attracted multiple maximum bets.

The World Cup has so far been a tremendous success for Cloudbet,” said Mella. “We fully expect our 100BTC limits for the final to be taken advantage of.

Atari® Teams Up with Native Gaming and Black Dog Venture Partners to Integrate Upcoming Atari Token in Native’s New MMORPG

Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and entertainment producers — today announced a partnership with Native Gaming and Black Dog Venture Partners to integrate the upcoming Atari Token in Native Gaming’s soon-to-launch Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) and library of popular casino slot games.

Native Gaming (NativeGaming.io) is an ambitious new online casino that allows players to “Be the House” by directly taking a stake in the bankroll. Stakeholders receive Gross Gaming Revenue generated by 5,000+ Casino Games from over 70 game providers, including Evolution Gaming, Netent, Play’n GO, and Microgaming.

Native Gaming has recently announced its proprietary Social MMO Sweepstakes Casino featuring the first of its kind, patent-pending, Native MMO Slot Game. Unlike traditional “spin for and a chance to win”-style online slots games, theNative MMO Slot Game is a full video game that replaces the traditional, casino-style slot mechanic with a monster-catching system similar to the popular Pokemon games. Monsters can then be used to battle and earn money or cashed in directly to the casino. Native Gaming has not announced a release date for the Native MMO Slot Game yet, but they are running a great No Deposit Free Spin Bonus to tide players over in the meantime.

Justin McCool, Native Gaming CEO commented, “We are excited to be a part of what Atari is doing in both the casino and blockchain space. It’s hard to imagine a more appropriate partner to help us take our new Native MMORPG Casino Slot Game to market and bridge the gap between gamers, gamblers, and the cryptocurrency community.”

“Native is building a whole new genre in online gambling and we are thrilled to partner with them on this new casino experience,” added Fred Chesnais, Atari CEO. “Integrating the Atari Token in Native’s ecosystem will give gamers and gamblers the opportunity to use the Atari Token as a payment method in Native’s casino slot games, meaning more financial options and flexibility for consumers.”

Atari Chain Ltd. is a subsidiary of Atari SA, created to lead the development of ongoing projects in the field of cryptocurrencies in entertainment-based industries. The Atari Token, currently slated to launch by September of 2020, is issued by Atari Chain, Ltd (Gibraltar), a company equally owned by Atari and the ICICB Group.

PartnerMatrix inks partnership agreement with DAOGroup
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.
