Paying sports bets with crypto currencies

It is no longer a novelty that cryptocurrencies are increasingly finding their way into everyday life: a lot of Bitcoin ATMs are on the streets of Austria, Germany or Switzerland, paying via Bitcoin and co. is even possible at kiosks in France – and blockchain technology is now used throughout the country, from the financial world to the automotive industry.

The digital money is therefore not a short-term hype – even sports bets can now be paid with crypto currencies. The first bookmakers have been accepting bets in Bitcoins for some time now. Reason enough to take a closer look at the current situation and to introduce some of the leading sports betting providers where payment can be made with crypto currencies.

Pay sports bets with crypto currencies

  • Sports betting goes crypto currencies: what advantages does payment via crypto currencies have for bookmakers and especially for betting enthusiasts?
  • A clear advantage in contrast to payment by credit card or online payments – the fees for crypto-currencies are not as high as for the other payment methods – here the total is a whopping 4%.
  • And another benefit for the user is also obvious: the anonymity of digital money.

Sports betting providers who accept crypto-currencies for deposits often only require their customers to provide an e-mail address. Personal data or even proof of identification for account confirmation does not have to be presented. With crypto exchanges where digital money is traded, the situation is different – a complete registration process is required. An overview of the most important crypto exchanges in 2019 can be found here.
