What is cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is virtual money that has no physical expression. The unit of such currency is "coin", which means "coin" in English.

The key feature of cryptocurrencies is decentralization — the absence of any internal or external administrator. Therefore, banks, tax, judicial and state authorities cannot influence the transactions of users of crypto assets. This is possible because all data with cryptocurrency wallets and transactions are stored in the blockchain.

How is cryptocurrency used?

First of all, consider the benefits to the players. Of course, Anonymity comes first. Not everyone wants to advertise that they are playing.

Cryptocurrency allows you to solve this issue in the best way: no one will simply know what kind of person is hiding behind a specific wallet number.

  • Cross-border
    • Cryptocurrencies have finally become the way that allows you to ignore any state borders and calmly interact with any organizations in any country of the world. Including the casino.
  • High transaction speed
    • Periodically, cryptocurrency transactions can hang, and seriously and for a long time. Unfortunately, one of the reasons for this is that in the very structure of cryptocurrencies there are serious restrictions on the maximum number of transactions per second. For "old" cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Ether, this amount can be as little as 7-20.

For the owner of an online casino, cryptocurrency technology is a whole mountain of gifts.

Firstly, it becomes possible to scale infinitely, that is, to attract customers from other cities, countries, continents.

Popular Cryptocurrencies

Now let‘s look at the top of the most popular cryptocurrencies on the market.


  • Market capitalization – 789 996 841 797 $

  • Market capitalization – 83 008 908 364 $

Such currencies are called stablecoins and serve to digitalize national currencies. Thus, the painful topic of crypto is eliminated – high volatility, but at the same time all the key advantages of electronic money (security, anonymity, lack of borders) are preserved.

Binance Coin

  • Market capitalization – 70 628 608 931 $

USD Coin

  • Market capitalization – 49 812 922 690 $

Polka dot

  • Market capitalization – 21 136 202 010 $

This blockchain platform focuses on the idea of connecting additional blockchains to the main one, thereby increasing the possible scalability of the network.

Ways to withdraw funds from the casino?

Sure. But it is worth understanding that you are unlikely to be lucky right away – this is a rarity. Playing in an online casino requires skills, patience and luck.
In general, when choosing a casino, choose one that has a reliable license and a high payout (96-97%).

If you doubt whether your favorite game will bring money to a new institution, then just study the statistics of payouts for this slot for the last month (usually you can view these data in a casino without any problems).
