The Universal Gaming Token will list on cryptocurrency exchanges Independent Reserve, HitBTC and LATOKEN.

The PlayChip Foundation has announced the official listing of its PlayChip token.

The ERC20 token, PlayChip, will go live and commence trading on Australia’s first regulated cryptocurrency exchange Independent Reserve, as well as top ten exchanges HitBTC, and LATOKEN on Wednesday January 30th.

The PlayChip was one of the rare success stories in 2018 token sales, attracting participants in more than fifty countries and recognition at major international blockchain events.

The listing follows the first integration of the PlayChip into the gaming platform of operational partner PlayUp.

PlayUp operates several gaming products including one of the world’s premier fantasy sports platforms. In Q1 of 2019, PlayUp plans to activate and award over US$1 million in prizes across major sporting events such as the Super Bowl, Big Bash and Six Nations Rugby Tournament.

“This has been a fantastic week for the PlayChip,” said PlayChip Foundation Director Daniel Simic.

“The sports betting and gaming market is primed for blockchain integration. This industry was integral in driving mass adoption of the internet in the late 90’s, and with the crypto revolution upon us, punters and gamers will once again be the first to experience this next-generation technology, with the PlayChip at the forefront of this revolution.”

“We have achieved what a fraction of blockchain-based projects ever accomplish. The PlayChip has been well adopted and demonstrated mainstream appeal with a level of utility most tokens won’t see for years, if at all.”

“While we are very proud of what we’ve achieved so far, this is only the beginning. Big things are in store for the PlayChip”.

PlayChips can be purchased within Australia from Independent Reserve, and internationally on HitBTC and LATOKEN from Wednesday January 30th.

Unikrn, a global leader at the intersection of blockchain, entertainment and wagering, is opening its crypto wallet and platform accessibility to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin and many others, pushing the boundaries of how cryptocurrency is traded, stored and utilized. New crypto users can deposit in Unikrn wallet 2.0 for a 300% deposit bonus with code WALLET (T&C’s apply).

The wallet functionality is powered by Bittrex International, one of the world’s most trusted cryptocurrency exchanges, and is expected to lead the charge of a shift toward crypto functionality with real products.

Crypto enthusiasts will now be able to directly trade and store a wide variety of cryptocurrencies on Unikrn, and easily make conversions into platform tokens called UnikoinGold (UKG). With thousands of esports betting markets, streamer betting, traditional sports betting, 24/7 virtual markets, an online casino, a gaming store and other partners, the new Unikrn Wallet will become one of crypto’s first mainstream platforms for using crypto for more than holding and trading.“We’re excited for Unikrn to be a Bittrex Enterprise Wallet customer,” said Bill Shihara, of Bittrex International, “I believe in cryptocurrency’s power to revolutionize commerce. Platforms like Unikrn are leading the way for a future where you don’t just buy cryptocurrency, you use it for anything you want to do. As a Bittrex Enterprise Wallet customer, they can give their users secure access to hundreds of cryptocurrencies without needing to build their own wallet infrastructure.”

Unikrn UMode is also the international home of skill-betting for popular online games such as Fortnite, League of Legends, CS:GO, Halo 5 and Dota 2. These bets, along with store purchases, prize drawing entry and all other Unikrn functionality can be seamlessly financed with deposited or held Bitcoin, Ethereum or other major cryptos.

“Finding a zero-friction way to let our fans leverage their favorite cryptocurrencies on the Unikrn platform is one of the biggest requests we get from customers,” said Rahul Sood, Unikrn CEO. “We’re also happy to allow TRON users to easily deposit in, where all TRON users get higher deposit limits, and can now seamlessly convert their TRON into UKG and back directly on the Unikrn platform.”

Apple Card, a new credit card partnership between Goldman Sachs and Apple Inc., is going to launch soon.

The customer agreement of Apple Card said that the card cannot be used to purchase cash advances or cash equivalents that include cryptocurrencies, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or lottery tickets.

The Apple Card is part of a broader effort by Apple to derive more of its revenue from services after years of heavily reliance on iPhone sales, which declined 12% in the most recent quarter.

Apple and Goldman are not alone in banning the purchase of cryptocurrencies. Major American and British banks Lloyds Banking Group Plc and Virgin Money VM.L also banned such purchases. The banks were concerned that volatile prices could leave consumers saddled with debts they could not repay.

More than $14 million worth of TRON (TRX) is gambled in decentralized casinos every day, as the cryptocurrency emerges as one of the world’s most popular gambling tokens.

According to research from bestTRONcasino.com, an average of US$14 million has been gambled in TRON across dozens of casinos throughout 2019.

This makes TRON the second most gambled cryptocurrency in the world, after Bitcoin but ahead of more established coins such as Ethereum, with more than $5 billion worth of TRON set to be gambled in 2019 alone.

At time of writing, TRON is the world’s 12th most valuable cryptocurrency, with a market capitalisation of around $1.5 billion.

A spokesperson for bestTRONcasino.com said: “TRON-based gambling has really taken off this year, with thousands of players wagering millions of dollars’ worth of TRON every single day.

“Most TRON casinos reward players with tokens, which pay out a percentage of the casino’s profits in the form of a dividend. This has created an active market for those looking to trade the most successful tokens.

“The wider gambling industry has not paid much attention to TRON gambling so far, but with annual betting volumes in the billions of dollars, it will not be long before we see some established names making moves into the TRON casino space.”

bestTRONcasino.com is a recently-launched portal featuring news, reviews and bonuses from the world’s leading TRON casinos.
