Online poker site announces it will now accept over 60 cryptocurrencies as a payment option.
Online PR News – 20-September-2017 – Americas Cardroom today announced a major expansion of its processing options. In the coming weeks, the US-facing online poker site will accept over 60 of the top cryptocurrencies for deposits, with withdrawals following soon after.
The expansion comes after over a year of welcoming Bitcoin. “We are strong believers and supporters of blockchain technology and we’ve been welcoming Bitcoin for a long time to rave reviews from our players,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “Now, we’re expanding our cryptocurrency options to include 60 of the top ones, making it easy for new poker players to deposit and get in the game.”
Americas Cardroom and its sister sites on the Winning Poker Network are the only online poker rooms to welcome over 60 cryptocurrencies. Players will be able to deposit with their favorite cryptocurrency and enjoy immediate access to the real money tables. Cryptocurrency withdrawals will then be available soon.
Bitcoin has fast become a player-favorite for deposits and withdrawals. Unlike other processing methods, there are virtually no transaction fees, with the exception of a small miner’s fee. In addition, transactions are processed much faster than traditional options.
The expansion of its cryptocurrency offering comes just in time for the OSS Cub3d, Americas Cardroom’s 3-part tournament series running September 24th – October 22nd. It features over $14 million in guaranteed prize money, plus three $1,000,000 GTD tourneys including one with a half-price $265 buy-in on October 15th.
Continued Harris, “We’re seeing a wider acceptance of cryptocurrencies, both online and live. Look at the upcoming Punta Cana Poker Classic, which is the first land-based poker tournament to welcome Bitcoin for deposits and withdrawals. This is the future and while we can’t predict which currency is going to emerge as market leader, we’re happy to be a part of the movement that’s making cryptocurrencies mainstream.”
