Commenting on their findings, a spokesperson from CasinoScores said, “It’s fascinating to see the high interest in cryptocurrency as it continues to evolve. With this new currency market becoming well known in the past decade, it’s insightful to see the world’s interest and the future impact this could have on traditional banks, with Crypto moving away from normalities. The data shows that Bitcoin shows the strongest dominance worldwide of all the digital currencies, and is still a go-to for many, since being the original cryptocurrency in the market, it is no surprise it holds its position in the ranking.
It’s equally insightful to see how cryptocurrency has become more popular among gamblers, as it can process transactions faster due to blockchain technology. In addition to lower transactions fees that you would typically pay through traditional banking when on an online casino site. Whereas with crypto gambling, there aren’t the tax fees added on and are only paying a fee to the miners of the cryptocurrency, therefore, can be an appealing option for casino players.”
