Nitrogen Sports, based in Costa Rica, has announced that it is going to allow poker players to use Bitcoin to fund their accounts. With the decision the company has joined the likes of Seals with Clubs, Silk Poker, Betcoin Poker, Switch Poker, WinPoker, etc. The mentioned companies have already allowed poker players to use Bitcoins to fund their accounts.
Nitrogen Sports came to existence in 2012 when it was formed to deliver the best user interface for sports betting with the help of a team of professionals who are passionate about coupling user experience and innovative web technologies. The latest announcement is to accommodate technological innovation that is sweeping the entire world of payment.
Nitrogen Sports gave comprehensive information in its press release that it posted on the official website. It says that it’s clear to the company that online gambling would hugely benefit from embracing Bitcoin, the biggest benefits being instant transactions, low transaction costs, anonymity, and security.
It further cleared that extending those benefits to a community of poker players was an easy decision for the company. However, according to observers the use of Bitcoins for online gambling hasn’t been without problems. For instance, the last month, Bitcoin payment processor Coinbase moved to close the accounts of both US and foreign customers.
It had then sought to transfer Bitcoins from gambling sites. Nonetheless, Bitcoins are slowly making their presence felt in Las Vegas. One such occasion came in July wherein the Strip got its first Bitcoin ATM, which can convert cash into Bitcoins and vice versa. However, now Bitcoins can’t be used for gambling on casino floors in the Silver State.
Embracing Bitcoin Will Bring in More Customers
