Cryptocurrency and gambling are two industries that have seen rapid growth in recent years. Blockchain technology has had huge effects on a wide range of industries. Gambling is now seeing a transformation as the growth of cryptocurrency enters the industry.

Payment system

Using cryptocurrencies is now a payment method available on new online casinos and betting sites. However, most of the established betting sites, for example, https://www.unibet.co.uk/bettingare yet to offer the payment option to its players. With this being said, it is growing as a method and the advantages it brings mean that one day it could take over as the main payment method that we use. The benefits of this are that it allows players to gamble anonymously and they can also play without having to create an account and send in any personal data to get their account verified. Another advantage for the gambling sites is that using the blockchain for the payment means there aren´t the fees associated with traditional payment methods, and players can also access their money much faster.

Transparency

Transactions completed on a blockchain automatically create a record that cannot be changed or deleted. This means that anybody is able to confirm that a transaction has actually taken place. Therefore, betting sites are able to show that they are honest and transparent. Anybody can view winnings and access their money easily.

Decentralised structure

Not only does a decentralized structure mean better security, Blockchain technology allows anybody to become a member of the casino itself. Some Bitcoin casinos allow their users to fund the casinos and take a share of the profits. vSlice, run through the Ethereum platform, allows token holders to receive automatic dividends from profits that are generated. Wagerhas its own Blockchain network which provides a decentralized sports betting platform, which means that each betting type has its own unique type of transaction, and Wagerr states it ensures scale when it comes to creating consensus for determining winners and losers by having bets take place on the second tier of the network.

Casinos & Betting Sites that now exclusively use their own cryptocurrency

Zero Edge is an online casino using a blockchain network, but its business model is around the growth of its own cryptocurrency rather than profits taken from gamblers. All betting on the platform is using Zero Edge’s own cryptocurrency called ZERO. There is a fixed supply of ZERO tokens, so this means as demand grows, so does the value of the cryptocurrency. Due to this, all the games on ZeroEdge.Bet have a 0% house edge, meaning that gamers have the same chance as winning as the house, unlike traditional casino gaming where the odds are heavily in favour of the house. Zero Edge is also going to offer a 0% commission sports betting exchange, where players bet on a variety of different sports worldwide.

How Cryptocurrencies Will Change Online Gambling in the Future

Anyone who has followed online gambling since the beginning can tell you that things don’t stay the same for long. One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.

An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.

A Post-Legality Era

Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.

In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…
