Budapest – 21 August 2018 – Over the last twelve months or so, the whole world has woken up to the phenomenon of cryptocurrency. Bitcoin’s sudden and dramatic increases or decreases in value have been in the headlines everywhere, but we must not forget that the blockchain technology behind it is the most interesting aspect for many.

As often quoted, blockchain would seem to be a perfect solution for the gambling industry in general and online gambling in particular. Especially since many millions of transactions carried out between players and gambling sites each day – both in terms of stakes being laid down and winnings being collected. If these can be made quickly and directly without the need for an intermediary such as a bank or a credit card company being involved, it would be good for both parties.

If we take a look at the player, the anonymity of the exchange, not to mention the speed, are both very appealing features. Plus, the low (and sometimes non-existent) fee is obviously good news for the online casino, which may be paying up to 5% to carry out some transactions, allowing it to plough more money into marketing, new games, or better jackpots.

We must also mention that the blockchain is such a secure method of payment is obviously very important at a time when data breaches and other security issues are very much on the increase. Due to its decentralised attributes, it makes it virtually impossible to alter any data – offering a protection against online fraud.

But where does this leave the regulator, who has to ensure the protection of the player and also contribute to the state’s budgets when it comes to a regulated market. Based on our data, nowhere. The regulators and legislators can’t keep up with it and this leaves a serious gap in the regulation of certain market when it comes to crypto gambling.

Cryptocurrency only appeals to a select few gambling operators. At the moment, the potential consequences of flouting money laundering regulations vastly outweigh the nice-to-have benefits of greater efficiency and security.

We are honored to announce Tomas Draksas is the Co-founder of Edgeless, as the latest speaker who will join the “Innovation Talks – Evolution of technology vs Gambling Regulators” panel discussion and share the insights of this new way of gambling.

Tomas Draksas is the Co-founder of Edgeless, Professional Poker Player & Gambler, who has been recently making waves in the crypto gambling industry. He will join Joakim Renman (Scout Gaming Group), Adriaan Brink (BetterBetting) and Domenico Mazzola (Altenar) in the panel discussion moderated by Dr. Joseph Borg (WH Partners)

Are Bitcoin Casinos The Future Of Online Betting?

Are Bitcoin Casinos The Future Of Online Betting?
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Bitcoin has been here for more than ten years now. When it was first “invented” way back in 2009, it was more of an underground “currency” rather than formal digital money. Back then, only a few enthusiasts are playing with it, and it barely even had any value. One Bitcoin user back in 2011 even put out 10,000 pieces of BTC for auction for only $60–but no one bought it. The first real-world Bitcoin purchase was for a pizza in exchange for 10,000 BTC.

Now, Bitcoin is widely used by a lot of people, and it is even considered by a lot as this age’s “digital gold.” From being an ignored form of digital currency, it is now widely used in a lot of things: online shopping, trading, and investment, in online gambling through Bitcoin casinos, and a lot of other things.

How does BTC work when it comes to gambling? What are Bitcoin casinos, and how does it work? Is it any different from how existing online casinos right now work? Here are the things that you need to know.

How do Bitcoin casinos work?

A Bitcoin casino is no different from the traditional online casino that you may probably know. It offers mostly a similar set of games that you can find in every online casino. The only difference is that this type of casinos accepts Bitcoin as the ONLY form of payment.

Here are some of the most popular Bitcoin casinos right now:

  • Satoshidice
  • Switch Poker
  • StrikeSapphire
  • Bitzino
  • Bc-casino.com
  • Satoshibet
  • BtcSpiortsBet
  • BitLotto

What makes it very appealing to gamblers?

There are a lot of reasons why a lot of gamblers are opting to go to an online casino that is operating only through BTC. From security to convenience concerns, here are some of the reasons.

Anonymity

A lot of people give so much importance to their online security and privacy, including online gamblers. This is why some people even fall into the terrible mistake of using fake details in signing up for an account, only to end up being suspended if not banned from the site.

One of the security protocols for online betting sites is for its customers to provide verification information. Sometimes, this will be asked right at the start, although some would only require identity verification before the first withdrawal of the customer.

A Bitcoin casino removes all of these. Since all you need is a Bitcoin wallet ID, which is not tied to any personal information about you, you can technically play, deposit, and withdraw without disclosing any personal or financial information.

No transaction fees

Regardless of what payment method you are using–a bank account, a debit or credit card, or an e-money wallet–

What you should know

Although owning Bitcoin is technically recognized as a legal thing for most of the world, it is yet to be recognized as a real currency or legal tender. Most countries, while they consider Bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency legal, only see it as property but not legal tender.

When it comes to online betting using Bitcoin, no clear or definitive law outlaws it or even recognizes it as legal. Technically, since Bitcoin is not recognized as legal tender, there may be complications about its legality. However, that matter can be a confusing and complicated one. If you are looking to play in a Bitcoin casino, the best thing to do is to do thorough research on how using cryptocurrency for gambling works and the possible risks that come with it.
