Betting On Sports With Cryptocurrency

Published

on

The advent of Bitcoin and all other forms of cryptocurrency, known collectively as altcoins, have changed the way the world’s monetary systems are working. Digital currency has gained a foothold across the planet and isn’t about to go away.

There are several businesses that now willingly accept and embrace the blockchain as a method of payment for goods and services. Bitcoin was the first form of cryptocurrency to be widely accepted, but since then several others have gone mainstream, including ethereum, litecoin and as many as 30 other varieties of altcoins. Currency, virtually all US gambling sites accept Bitcoins. A majority of online betting sites accept some other type of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Ethereum, Dash, Litecoin or Ripple.

One of the industries that has welcomed cryptocurrency with a warm embrace is the realm of online sports betting. There are any number of these betting sites that not only welcome players to utilize their preferred form of cryptocurrency, they actually encourage it.

Bonus Offerings

One method through which these betting sites are encouraging players to want to deposit to their accounts via the blockchain is by offering additional bonus funds for players who opt to top up their accounts via cryptocurrency. 

For example, Bovada, which pulls the largest market share in the online sports betting world, offers a significant increase in its signing bonus for players who decide to go with cryptocurrency. The standard signup bonus with Bovada is a 100 percent matching bonus worth a maximum amount of $250. However, make that same first deposit through the blockchain and you’ll enjoy a 75 percent uptick on that signup bonus. Now it maxes out at $750. 

BetUS, which services over 300,000 clients, is also big on the blockchain. The standard signup bonus at BetUS is a 125 percent matching first deposit up to a maximum amount of $2500. Should you opt to make that first deposit with some form of cryptocurrency, that bonus doubles to $5,000. 

At BetDSI, they triple the pleasure for their crypto clients. They offer a standard signup bonus of a 200 percent matching first deposit bonus worth up to $500. Use Bitcoin or altcoins to make that deposit and they triple the total of the bonus offer to $1500.

At MyBookie, you can redeem their special cryptocurrency 100 percent matching bonus up to five times. GT Bets offers a five percent bonus on every cryptocurrency deposit that players make to their accounts. BetOnline also offers a 35 percent reload bonus on cryptocurrency deposits.

Advantages Of Using Cryptocurrency At Betting Sites

The benefits that players will generate from topping up their account at a betting site by utilizing the blockchain as opposed to traditional fiat currencies are exponential. 

For starters, players never need to worry about funds potentially being lost or frozen by some form of government seizure. There’s also no need for any form of currency exchange to be involved with a crypto transaction. 

Unlike what are considered mainstream methods of transferring money to an iGaming account such as credit or debit cards, eWallets, online bank transfers, bank wires and money transfers, there are generally little to no fees involved with a cryptocurrency transfer.

Another advantage with cryptocurrency transfers is that they are fast, simple and convenient. Transfers can be made via smartphone or tablet. Crypto transfers move from Point A to Point B almost instantly. There’s virtually no delay in the money showing up in the player’s account.

In dealing with any online entity, safety and security are always Priority One. Again, this is where the blockchain steps to the fore. The enhanced security of the blockchain, which is merely a series of numbers that can’t be traced back to their origination place, in the realm of digital money ensures that there is 100 percent trust in the transaction between the betting site and the player making the deposit or withdrawal. 

As well, the crypto transaction is completely anonymous. There’s no paper trail as there would be in the case of the so-called traditional forms of moving money. Many of the high rollers in the betting game prefer to fly below the radar. By using crypto, they add another level to their cloaking device.

The Breath of the Wild sequel reveal teaser featured footage of the hero Link soaring through the sky, along with what appeared to be a fair amount of in-game footage. It appears Link will have new magical abilities and techniques at his disposal.

Nintendo initially announced the development for a sequel to Breath of the Wild in June 2019 during E3 of that year. Fans have been waiting patiently for some new developments for about two years now, and it finally arrived during the Nintendo presentation.

The Legend of Zelda Announcements Hit E3 2021

Cyan Planet passes fundraising goal to create a Digital Twin of the ocean for exploration in VR

Published

on

In Virtual Reality News

June 16, 2021 – Cyan Planet, an international immersive media studio connecting audiences with marine organizations with an aim of promoting action for marine conservation, has recently announced that it has secured funding to start the creation of a digital twin of the ocean. The company’s flagship project ‘How is the Water’ raised more than USD $60,000 from over 500 backers worldwide and is now in its last days on Kickstarter.

The How is the Water digital twin of the ocean aims to make the underwater world accessible for everybody, while digitally preserving marine life for future generations, according to Cyan Planet. It is a virtual world that offers a unique opportunity to experience the underwater world from the perspective of marine animals, allowing users to explore the ocean using a mobile device, computer, or ideally, a virtual reality (VR) headset. 

The project aims to connect people with the ocean, combining entertainment, experiential learning, and real-world marine conservation scenarios thanks to partnerships with many marine organizations like Whale & Dolphin Conservation, Reef Life Foundation, and Ocean Sounds. At the same time, it will provide a high-fidelity environment for professionals to visualize and simulate ocean-related scenarios and to communicate their work. The animals encountered in the world are also digital twins of real marine species, powered by AI to recreate realistic behavior. Furthermore, according to the Kickstarter page, even more animals are lined up to be scanned in order to create more digital twins.

“My mission is to make the ocean accessible for everybody,” said Michal Lovecky, CEO and Creative Director at Cyan Planet. “We can’t protect the ocean, unless we understand it, and allow people to connect with it on a deep emotional level.” Lovecky plans to create a virtual ocean world and connect researchers with people worldwide to drive action in support of marine conservation.

“We connect the actions within How is the Water with real-world impact,” added Ninja Mueller, a marine biologist and Co-Director, at Cyan Planet. “For example, if you grow your coral garden in-game, there will be a real reef structure deployed for coral restoration.”

Cyan Planet is using the power of virtual reality and immersive media to help inspire and educate people about the science of marine ecosystems through its How is the Water project. The company states that it is planning on having the first playable build (alpha prototype) ready by the end of the year. For more information on Cyan Planet and its ocean digital twin project, please visit the company’s website.
