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.

It is must and should for the documents for filling and approving before cargo could be able to enter or leave a port. A single shipment is required with a several hundreds of pages, that are needed for the sake of being physically delivered for dozens of different agencies, banks bureaus and other entities.

China cracks its first cryptocurrency gambling racket
Reading Time: 1 minute

The Chinese police has cracked a gambling ring that uses an illegal cryptocurrency for betting on World Cup matches. The company got bets worth US$1.5 billion in cryptocurrency. This is believed to be the first ever cryptocurrency-based betting ring in the country.

The Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department released a statement late last week announcing that police had arrested six people suspected of running the syndicate, which operated on the dark web and attracted around 330,000 users. All bets were placed using digital currencies.

According to the statement, around 5 million yuan in cash and 10 million yuan in cryptocurrencies have been seised.

Discovery of the cryptocurrency ring formed part of a broader operation by Chinese police against illegal World Cup betting, with the Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department revealing it has arrested more than 540 people suspected of being involved in online gambling rings, shut down more than 70 gambling apps and websites and seized more than 260 million yuan in funds during the Russia World Cup.

Police said they had organized a series of 21 raids in locations such as Guangdong, Guangxi and Sichuan as part of a coordinated operation.

“The online gambling crime gangs were closely organized, with a mostly pyramid-style organizational structure, recruiting agents at various levels, developing members at various levels and profiting from the middle members’ betting amount,” police explained.

The websites also utilized familiar casino names such as “Crown” and “New Lisboa” to attract customers.

Only last week Chinese social media giant Tencent announced that it had shut down 50,000 accounts on its hugely popular WeChat app for involvement in illegal gambling activities.

However, Guangdong police described the discovery of the cryptocurrency ring as unique due to it being “the first case of using bitcoin for online gambling” and “the most representative of new online gambling cases.”

Reading Time: 1 minute

TALLINN, Estonia, July 18, 2018  — Change, a Singaporean-founded company based in Estonia has launched a mobile application for buying and converting between different virtual assets with zero commission fees.

As cryptocurrencies become mainstream, consumers look for options to add the novelty asset class to their portfolios. Unfortunately, this is often an expensive endeavor, as most cryptocurrency brokers and exchanges charge buying fees that can go up to 5%.

The app currently supports Bitcoin, Ether, Ripple, Litecoin, and Tether, and is available for iOS and Android, to residents of the European Economic Area, under the name of “Change Wallet”.

According to a survey by ING launched in June, two in three individuals in Europe have heard of cryptocurrencies. Although only 9% of Europeans own cryptocurrencies, 25% plan on owning some in the future.

On a live interview with  BBC World News, Change’s CEO Kristjan Kangro has said cryptocurrencies will soon be used just as much as traditional currencies by the masses when paying for good and services.

“I’m backing this project because I think it’s got an extremely great future, and I see that Change is going to have challenges going forward. I have no doubt that this business is going to thrive and grow globally over the coming years.” – Roger Crook, former CEO of DHL Global Forwarding.

Change has several new product releases slated for roll out in 2018, including a subscription plan for advanced users.

Change is a mobile first cryptocurrency finance platform in Europe. Following one of Asia’s largest ever crowdfunded raises, Change now allows customers to buy and convert cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ether, and Ripple with zero fees.
