Bitcoin Press Release: Leading crypto sportsbook and casino Cloudbet becomes first to honour bitcoin fork

April 6th, 2018, Montenegro – Leading bitcoin sportsbook and casino Cloudbet if offering its users the chance to share a considerable cryptocurrency windfall. Players who held bitcoin in their Cloudbet accounts on August 1st, 2017, at the time of the bitcoin fork, will receive the equivalent in bitcoin cash.

Cloudbet has set a precedent within crypto gaming by releasing funds tied to what is now the world’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency. The company is the first bitcoin sportsbook and casino in the world (and the Galaxy) to honour the fork, underlining the credibility the platform has built since its 2013 launch in what has become a rapidly growing segment of the gaming industry.

Should they choose to, Cloudbet players will be able to use their windfall to take advantage of some of the best crypto odds and highest limits online, as Cloudbet have simultaneously launched betting with bitcoin cash. The move signals the platforms intention to offer crypto bettors more choice of coins with which to bet.

Mirio Mella, Cloudbet’s Head of Acquisition had these words to say about the platform;

“The creation of derivative bitcoin products in what are termed ‘forks’ has both practical and political implications. Cloudbet is focused on the practical; players want fast, cheap and reliable transactions, and BCH offers a great alternative to BTC. We have no position on the politics but instead are having fun with the Star Wars fork theme and will leave it to others to decide who is the Empire and who are the Freedom Fighting Rebels.”

Cloudbet will use the timestamp of the last common BTC block (block 478558; 1 August 2017, 13:16:14 UTC) to determine customers’ BCH balances; full details on the BCH fork.

Lite.im Introduces Litecoin SMS Payments Globally

Lite.im is a very powerful service in the cryptocurrency industry, as it facilitates the use of Litecoin SMS payments on a global scale. Making cryptocurrencies easier to use will improve overall adoption in the long run. Mobile services will play an increasing role of importance in this regard. The Lite.im Concept To this day, it is nearly impossible to transact in cryptocurrencies using simple text messages. Although a few services exist for Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, most other cryptocurrencies are left in the cold. That situation is finally coming to change courtesy fo Lite.im, a service which has not gone live just yet. How Does it Work? It is evident from the start Lite.im serves one specific purpose. It introduces Litecoin SMS payments on a large scale, which can have a lot of interesting consequences moving forward. On the surface, it allows for anyone in the world to send and receive Litecoin transactions by just using a mobile phone number. There is no need to rely on the Internet, which is always a good sign. On the technical side of things, users can send messages through SMS or Telegram. Catering to both markets is a smart decision by the team, as it is evident not everyone has access to the internet, even in this day and age. The functionality users can enjoy include checking balances, receiving transactions, and so forth. As is always the case with services like these, one has to wonder how private keys are handled. The information will not be stored by Lite.im, as the user is the only one with access to this vital piece of information. That is an integral part of the service, as it needs to be a trustless service first and foremost. Lite.im can be a very powerful service moving forward, although it remains to be seen if it can boost Litecoin’s overall appeal. The Road Ahead Users who show an interest in this service can check out the Telegram version, or pre-register for the SMS version. The project’s code is also available on GitHub, which shows the developers are intent on being as transparent as possible. How the project will be received by the general public, will become more apparent in the months ahead. Improving overall Litecoin awareness and adoption is always a challenge, but services like these can make a real difference.
