Bovada Bodog Casinos Bitcoin Payment Accepted

If you're looking to play online casinos games for real money and use bitcoin cash as your payment method you'll be delighted to hear that Bovada has joined the growing list of bitcoins casinos.

Internet giant Bovada has announced that they will now be accepting bitcoin cash (BCH) as one of their Bovada payment methods. This makes them the first site to accept this forked cryptocurrency and we expect to see a number of bitcoin casinos following suit.

Bovada has been accepting bitcoin payments for quite some time, but the move to bitcoin cash is something new. The fork in the bitcoin blockchain happened earlier this year because of a debate over scaling bitcoin to try and handle the ever-increasing number of transactions that occur on the network. The separation is seen by prominent bitcoin developers and evangelists as an attempt by a small group of people to take control of the cryptocurrency market. Any users that have bitcoin generated prior to August 1st, 2017, automatically have bitcoin cash of equal amounts.

It is thought the person behind the movement is Calvin Ayre, founder of Bodog and its related brands. He has publicly supported Craig Wright, the person who fraudulently claimed to be the creator of bitcoin. Wright and Ayre have filed a number of patents on blockchain related technologies and Ayre is also on record as stating that they aim to kill bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in favour of bitcoin cash. There are a couple of other people support them including Roger Ver, Jihan Wu, and John McAfee.

Why Use Bitcoin Cash as a Casino Payment Method?

Bitcoin is considered to be a great choice for online casino players because it allows for quick deposits and withdrawals with minimum fees and no interaction whatsoever with your bank. This is something casino players in the US find really important as they have difficulty making transactions through their banks when it comes to casino withdrawals and bitcoin gives them a way around this. US players can use Bovada for all their casino and sports betting needs and get a higher welcome bonus too.
