Bitcoin Awareness Spreads in Sports, Online Games

The popularity of eSports and online sports betting does its part in spreading Bitcoin awareness. By integrating the Bitcoin functionalities into the conventional aspects of sports betting and online gaming–thereby creating Bitcoin eSports betting–these two sectors show great potential in becoming the channels for the digital currency to reach more people. Bitcoin is utilized as a means to wager on various kinds of sports as well as to sponsor teams and sporting events. Thus, it is not far-fetched for eSports tournaments to also share the spotlight with Bitcoin, especially with the recent collaborations like that of Xapo, CEVO, and Leet.

“Already a popular market in online gaming, eSports continue to grow bigger internationally as more tournaments are held, with each constantly increasing the number of supporters and participants. With the most in-demand games like League of Legends, Dota 2, and Starcraft 2, pairing Bitcoin with these names and competitions will help its awareness campaign reach farther.”

Blockchain-Based Trading Card Game Ups Bitcoin 2.0

Spells of Genesis is a new arcade trading card game that is built on the Bitcoin blockchain. It is a follow-up to the popular 2010 mobile game, Moonga, but is designed to highlight the innovative features that come with the Bitcoin 2.0 projects. Special trading cards that are offered for a limited time only feature altcoins like FoldingCoin, Storjcoin, and Gemz. The Bitcoin game runs on the Counterparty protocol and fully depends on the blockchain technology.

“We are convinced the blockchain will be the next huge innovation, like the Internet was, so we have become botch a cryptocurrency company and a game company. Since there are Internet game companies, there are going to be blockchain-based game companies.”
