The cryptocurrency market total value as of December 2017 is approximately USD $500 billion. Last year, the online gambling market, was approximately $44 billion. It is expected that the revenues from the online gambling market will exceed $60 billion by 2020. It is estimated that online gambling is one of the most profitable industries. Nevertheless, even for such a large market, there are a number of key problems, such as security and honesty of draws, difficulties with sending and withdrawing funds and commissions associated with them the monotony of loyalty programs and, in fact, lack of an organized ecosystem between players and game developers. Blockchain tech solves some of these problems, that is why according to online gambling market experts, cryptocurrencies and blockchain integration can take a leading position in this area in the coming years.
The main gambling problems, which are solved by blockchain and cryptocurrencies:
● honesty and transparency of the games, which are based on blockchain (dices, lotteries, games with a slight delay in waiting time);
● simplified procedure or lack of players identification;
● the absence of commissions and problems related to the reception of funds from other countries;
● automation of a number of internal processes, which are built on smart contracts;
● internal ecosystem implementation with the integration of tokens.
Blockchain and cryptocurrencies allow to minimize and simplify the operation of gambling games. So, for example, it is extremely difficult to completely build all the processes on the blockchain, this requires a high-speed blockchain system.
Proceeding from this, cryptocurrency opens up new opportunities for game developers, allowing them to convert the cryptocurrency into a reliable, transparent and lucrative sphere for the online gaming industry.
PlayBets team deals with the solution of a number of gambling industry problems and the transition to a new level of service development.
