Blockchain is a transaction-recording mechanism that comprises of batches of validated transactions called ‘blocks’ which are chained together in a way that ensures a very high level of data integrity. It is a decentralised ledger that allows transactions to be made without the need for a middle man. The technology enables cryptoassets to work.

Cryptoasset is an all-encompassing term which isn’t limited to cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are a subset of cryptoassets. The most well-known cryptocurrency is bitcoin, and its price is often used as the benchmark against which other cryptocurrencies are measured.

Cloudbet lowers bet limit to 10 Satoshi
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Cloudbet has lowered its sports betting limits to just 10 Satoshi, giving a whole new audience the chance to bet small but dream big.

Cloudbet, the leading bitcoin sportsbook, today announced that it has lowered its minimum sports bet limit to an astonishing 10 Satoshi. Crypto punters can now have skin in the game for as little as € 0.00047 (at the time of writing), so even the most risk-averse player can get all the excitement of betting on major sporting events like basketball, soccer, IPL cricket, MMA, and many more.

For the price of a coffee you can place nearly 9,000 bets at Cloudbet, that’s a whole lot of fun, without burning a hole in your digital wallet. By lowering minimum stakes Cloudbet hopes to create a more inclusive betting environment.

By offering record low bet limits, we are expanding our reach to include players that are keen to try using a crypto operator but want to start small, along with those seeking the excitement of bitcoin betting at much more affordable levels, a Cloudbet Spokesman said.

Bet small. Dream big.
Though customers can wager just fractions of a cent, it doesn’t rule out winning big. Cloudbet offer plenty of markets with long enough odds to turn that into a more meaningful amount, with accumulator bets one of the most popular.

One of the most spectacular cases to ever take place on Cloudbet’s sportsbook happened in 2017, when a lucky basketball fan placed a 0.005 bet on the NBA at 2387.4 odds in an accumulator bet. This daring decision turned into a major win, netting the player nearly 12 BTC winnings from their bet. That is over €40,000 for around 16 Euros. Since then hundreds of other players have won near life-changing amounts from relatively small stakes.

And of course 10 Sats might not be worth much today, but if you hodl your winnings, who knows what that might be worth in the bright future of crypto.

 

About Cloudbet:

Established in 2013, Cloudbet is the world’s leading bitcoin sportsbook and bitcoin casino platform, fully licensed and regulated with satisfied customers in over 100 countries.

Cloudbet offers exceptional value odds and unrivalled bitcoin betting limits – from the highest to the lowest – while new customers also receive a generous 100% deposit bonus up to 5 BTC/BCH.

Cryptocurrency: Top 8 Women In Cryptocurrency
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

With the dramatic rise in the bitcoin price, the word cryptocurrency has now become ubiquitous with masses. Now everybody who gets introduced to this marvel wants to learn more about it. When we think about any kind of currencies, the main area of concern remains the security.

Hence in case of cryptocurrencies, security has been given the paramount importance through the use of cryptography. Before understanding cryptocurrencies, you should first understand the concept of general currency itself. Money as the way we know i.e.

Cash, is simply a token we use to exchange goods and services. The piece of paper we carry in our wallets doesn’t have any inherent value. It gets its value from the fact that we people believe it to possess value.

In present times, the need for any physical token has reduced drastically and the focus has clearly shifted to virtual currencies. Like traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies too are digital currency except some crucial differences among the two like the widespread use of internet.

Let’s check out how cryptocurrencies are different from traditional currencies. First of all they are not issued by any government. They are created and controlled by computer programming and super specialized algorithms.

The users themselves along with their combined computing power execute all the aspects of the transactions pertaining to a particular cryptocurrency. No banks or intermediaries are needed for maintaining records or for processing the transaction.

This system, where the transactions are directly carried out by and among the users and the sophisticated computing machines is known as blockchain. The transaction happening over a blockchain is termed as ‘peer to peer’ transaction.

The second major difference between cryptocurrencies and conventional currencies is that the total amount of a particular cryptocurrency that can ever be in circulation is limited. Hence we see that conventional currencies work on inflationary model while cryptocurrencies has been designed to work on a deflationary model.
