Innovative SoftSwiss Technology

SoftSwiss Rocks BTC Poker Market with New Software

Leading Bitcoin casino software provider SoftSwiss expanded its range of products with the launch of its own online poker software. It features several poker game variants that are guaranteed to appeal to the taste of the Bitcoin poker enthusiasts. Moreover, various kinds of ways to play these games are present here, including GTD tourneys, Sit’n’Gos, and satellites to name a few. Using the innovative SoftSwiss technology, this Bitcoin poker platform is designed to function on mobile devices through native and HTML5 applications, apart from the browser and desktop versions.

“The SoftSwiss poker platform features the popular games like Texas Hold’em and Omaha, but it also offers several more versions, including 7 Card Stud, Badugi, Razz, and Deuce to Seven Triple Draw. Other variations like the Chinese classic, Open Face Chinese, and Open Face pineapple are also present on this platform.”

Are Land-Based Casinos Needed for Bitcoin to Grow?

The idea of using Bitcoin to play casino games in brick-and-mortar gambling venues remain to be overlooked, and this is largely due to certain policies and regulations that are yet to keep up with new technologies like Bitcoin. As such, the question of whether or not Bitcoin needs to be accepted in land-based casinos is even necessary, especially today when the top Bitcoin gambling sites like Nitrogen Sports, Primedice, and are performing well on the market.

“Regardless of the restrictions imposed on gambling using Bitcoin, its future shines brighter than before. Credit this to the increasing adoption of Bitcoin among major stakeholders and average Joes, as well as to the maturing Bitcoin gambling market, where select casinos, poker sites, and sportsbooks continue to revolutionize online betting.”

SwCPoker Faces Low Player Traffic, Tough Rivalries

A quick replacement for the defunct Seals with Clubs, SwCPoker seems to be having troubles in duplicating the success its predecessor has achieved during its stay on the Bitcoin poker scene. Based on published figures, the new Bitcoin poker 2.0 site barely clears half the highest average number of cash players of Seals with Clubs. This may be a major problem for Micon’s poker site since new platforms like GetLuckyPoker and BurnTurn are ready to rock the competition.

“According to reports, the Bitcoin poker room is yet to top its highest average number of 32 cash players, especially last week when its player traffic had dropped by almost 50 percent. With Seals with Clubs registering an average of 100 players per week, creating a new record for SwCPoker proved to be more challenging than what was expected.”

Chicago Conference Deliberates Future of Bitcoin

Industry leaders, Bitcoin experts, and entrepreneurs are set to take the spotlight as they grace the Inside Bitcoins conference in Chicago on July 10 to 11. Notable speakers are expected to grace the event, and a wide selection of topics will be discussed to create a better and more dynamic Bitcoin ecosystem. This conference must not be missed by Bitcoin gambling entrepreneurs and betting enthusiasts since expos like this also complement the Bitcoin casino market, indirectly influencing the trends and demands reflected on sites like and Betcoin Casino to name a few.

“Despite not being exclusively focused on the role and potential of Bitcoin gambling in the iGaming industry, conferences like Inside Bitcoins Chicago function as a venue for new adopters to discover the innovative gaming landscape exhibited on the Bitcoin casino market. Likewise, Bitcoin betting sites introduce players to Bitcoin events, enabling them to gain more knowledge of the strength and the promising features that await them through the use of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.“

Bitcoin Regulation in the US—Bane or Aid?

Existing today is the apparent confusion or misunderstanding of the public regarding Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The lack of education and awareness regarding digital currencies can be a factor behind the negative behavior toward Bitcoin, but it could very well be the legal structure—or the lack thereof—that prohibits the complete awareness and understanding of the technologies surrounding Bitcoin.

“For now, Bitcoin regulation in the US is still under the considerations and debates. The advantages, however, are yet to be realized by the entire Bitcoin community.”
