Payments using bitcoins are favoured by several players from the US, despite the fact that many American states prohibit online real money gaming.

Why Are Bitcoins Preferred?

Online payment methods are mainly preferred because transactions take place instantly, from anywhere in the world. Crypto coins are just similar to that, as one can carry out effortless payments.  

Another contributing factor why crypto coins are preferred is the high level of anonymity that it assures. One need not worry about banks, governments, or any other intermediaries while using cryptocurrencies. Several online poker rooms from around the world accept crypto coins, namely, Ignition Casino, Americas Cardroom, Poker Host, Intertops, Island Casino, etc.

Is This The Future Of Poker?

According to statistics by The Business Research Co., the shut down of land-based casinos has contributed to crypto coins being used. At this point, it is difficult to imagine only cryptocurrencies as the accepted form of currencies used for online poker as this would eventually replace real currencies that are currently used. On the other hand, there’ll be uniformity across all poker platforms in the respective countries.
