On Wednesday, Americas Cardroom confirmed that the cryptocurrency bitcoin now represented as much as 80% of all online gambling transactions.  This is up from just over 40% this time last year.

Americas Cardroom was the first online poker room to offer a full menu of a couple dozen cryptocurrencies.  In addition to bitcoin, ACR also allows customers to deposit and withdraw in litecoin, ethereum, bitcoin cash, monero, dash and more. 

The popular online poker room features promotions such as the Bigger Online Super Series (fittingly known as the BOSS) from July 8th to 15th with $3,020,000 in guarantees over just 26 events!

Their next OSS Cub3d is happening this August, so stay tuned.

Americas Cardroom also sent several dozen people to this year's World Series of Poker.
