Bitcoin gambling enthusiasts can now consider acquiring Darkcoin because this leading alternative cryptocurrency is now listed on Bitfinex, according to the press release.
One of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, Bitfinex has opened its trading floor to the third cryptocoin, which joins the more successful Bitcoin and Litecoin, allowing traders to buy and sell Darkcoin, as well as convert it for the other two digital currencies.
However, Bitfinex, which now runs on the AlphaPoint exchange platform, currently offers cash exchange transactions only, but it is set to bring a catalog of exclusive tools and services to Darkcoin traders in the future. Some of the services that will become available to online traders are trading on margin, shorting, and trading on leverage among others.
The addition of Darkcoin trading pairs DRK/USD and DRK/BTC to the list of pairs of the available digital currencies can be attributed to its growing popularity, which is seen by many to be more significant than the growth of the other alternative cyrptocurrencies.
Darkcoin, which was created by software developer Evan Duffield and formally launched in January 2014, now has a per coin valuation of $15.37 and a market cap of $66,868,183. This places it third among the cryptocurrencies that have the highest market cap valuation worldwide.
With the sought-after focus shifting toward Darkcoin, more ventures like Bitfinex are expected to integrate it with their services. For instance, Bitcoin gambling site SatoshiBet has added a number of altcoins, including Darkcoin, to its accepted currency payments.
The ability to exchange it with digital and fiat currencies give this cryptocurrency a brighter future in the world of Bitcoin online gambling. Soon, more Bitcoin casinos and betting sites may begin to follow the actions done by SatoshiBet in accepting Darkcoin.
Although Darkcoin’s strong stand on user privacy is met with negative criticisms by some, others like Bitfinex view it as a favorable feature that benefits cryptocurrency users.
