Crypto-currency Finding a Home in Vegas Sportsbooks

Las Vegas, the city that is constantly looking for another edge, has added a new currency to its repertoire. The town and strip, far and wide, are now accepting Bitcoin money transfers at select places. Currently, using CoinATMRadar, you can find 19 BTC machines in the area with more in the planning stages. BTC acceptance can now be found at hotel front desks to pay for food, room service and entertainment, while it is also welcomed by most cashiers and even video slot machines.

Founder of Coin Cloud, 29-year old entrepreneur Chris McAlary, made the initial push for Bitcoin ATM’s in Sin City. His strategically placed machines began overtaking their predecessors in transactions in mere weeks. To be exact, it took just 45 days for McAlary’s first Vegas-planted ATM to surpass the world’s former busiest machine in Vancouver, Canada. It’s not just the ATM’s and casinos that are capitalizing on the added business though.

In addition to brick and mortars, BTC is being pushed on the cashier pages of online shops, including TopBet which touts crypto-currency as the future of their industry. Marketing manager Luke Murray states “We expect crypto-currency to drive 50% of our business in 2018-19, with Bitcoin leading the charge this coming NFL season.”

Half of their business in two years is not too much of a stretch considering some sportsbooks have already seen the advantages and switched to Bitcoin exclusively. The in-house books and casinos have not fully followed suit yet, but another Las Vegas mainstay industry has. The Legend’s Room strip club has created a new members only venture that revolves solely around Bitcoin.

Through its use, you can pay for drinks, dances and even become a partial owner. Now that select online sportsbooks and nightclubs have gotten into the mix, it won’t be long before the brick and mortars fully follow suit. In fact, as of March this year, the one billion bet mark was surpassed in Bitcoin casinos; a tremendous milestone for the eight-year old currency.

The excitement of betting with Bitcoin is that the exchange rate is always on the move. So, for the bettor, it can be rather exciting knowing that your winnings can always increase over time. Given the recent surge in value, it may not come off as exciting for the house. Perhaps until its value establishes a little more stability, we may have to wait until we see a Bitcoin exclusive spot on the strip.

Bitcoin – An Insight On The Past Events and The Times Ahead

Bitcoin came to the scene in the year 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto is the brain behind the founding idea of Bitcoin, who later published a white paper. There, he described how the cryptocurrency will be helpful in curbing the practice of copying the money.

The future holds a lot of promise for Bitcoins, with BitLicense becoming the first body to regulate the currency. With this well-thought move, Bitcoin is slowly becoming the next big thing in the digital mainstream.

VeChain S.E.A. becomes a portfolio company of PwC’s incubation program to accelerate blockchain adoption in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia

(Shanghai, May 21, 2017)- Singapore-based blockchain service provider VeChain S.E.A, a subsidiary of the leading blockchain technology company in China, BitSE, is proud to announce it will join PwC’s incubation program.

PwC and BitSE held a signing ceremony on Monday in Hong Kong with Raymund Chao, PwC Greater China Chairman, and DJ Qian, CEO of BitSE and VeChain, to make the agreement official. A second signing ceremony was held in Singapore on May 17 with Mr. Qian and Yeoh Oon Jin, PwC Singapore’s Executive Chairman.

“In the journey of a joint business relationship between PwC and BitSE, we are delighted to achieve this significant milestone together with PwC. VeChain S.E.A, a subsidiary of BitSE, will focus on accelerating VeChain business expansion in Southeast Asia,” said DJ Qian, a former IBM executive who left the multinational technology firm in 2013 to join the blockchain industry. “Besides technology, industry know-how and market experiences are equally important to apply blockchain technology. We share the same vision with PwC to improve the efficiency and lower the cost of trust in supply chain management. I believe this in-depth cooperation will definitely accelerate the transformation of supply chain management.”

VeChain, which launched in November 2016, is an enterprise software designed to create, manage, maintain and update shared data about products in the supply chain. VeChain is a state-of-the-art collaboration platform, making the supply chain more transparent and solving important problems that exist in the modern supply chain. So far, this platform has already been adopted by several established companies as part of their production system in industries such as luxury, fashion, logistics, pharmaceuticals, automotive, food safety, and wine and spirits.

PwC’s incubator program will help VeChain accelerate its deployment in Hong Kong and South East Asia, as well as offer the blockchain startup strategic advice. PwC will also provide more resources, industry know-how and blockchain research to improve the design of VeChain and solve even more problems than the platform already does while expanding into more industries and onboarding more clients.

“Embracing advanced technology for growth becomes the top priority for many business sectors,” says Mr. Chao. “Innovative applications and solutions could improve the effectiveness of supply chain, brand reputation, and even customer experience. We are excited about the joint initiative between PwC and BitSE and the VeChain services we provide that could help our clients achieve greater success. I envisage our services will create an impact and deliver on our firm’s purpose of building trust in society and solve important problems.”

Mr. Oon Jin added: “Disruption is here to stay in our current volatile business environment and it brings both opportunities and challenges. We firmly believe that it is through embracing disruptive change that allows innovation to flourish. This is an exciting milestone for us, and we are confident that together with VeChain we will bring more value to the marketplace through collaborative innovation.”

PwC’s global network features more than 223,000 professionals across industries. BitSE’s more than 70 employees worldwide and over 50 professional blockchain application developers make it one of the largest blockchain-focused startups. The two companies partnered one year ago to promote blockchain adoption in Asia and around the world.
