With the boom in cryptocurrency’s popularity all over the world, businesses have adapted to incorporate the phenomenon and in a way, the gaming and betting industry has been leading the way in crypto adoption.
Betting through cryptos is becoming increasingly popular with a large number of betting sites offering users the option to do so. More and more gambling sites are joining the bandwagon every passing day.
Cryptos have emerged as a very viable alternative to fiat currency or traditional cash betting when it comes to online transactions. Currently, a lot of websites accept payment via popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, etc but more and more coins and tokens are being added as options.
Some websites also offer bonuses and rewards through cryptos.
Easy deposits, fast withdrawals, low fees and a provision for playing vivid sections of games are some of the reasons behind the popularity of crypto betting. Increasing awareness about cryptocurrencies has also quickened adoption.
Here we look at some of the top crypto betting sites of 2022.
Established in 2016, Sportsbet.io is one of the top betting sites in the market. It is also ranked first in the cryptocurrency sportsbook. The site focuses on the three core principles of fun, fast and fair.
