This leads to an increase in the popularity of online gaming and betting among female audiences and young players over the age of 21 who actively use cryptocurrencies in their daily lives in general and for online betting in particular.”

Aleksander Kamenetskyi, Sportsbook Product Owner, believes that the reason for the lack of cryptocurrencies in this sector is that the companies launching their services and products were not initially focused on this banking option. However, he’s positive that this method’s popularity will gradually grow in the future and become a currency of choice in this niche as well.
