Bitcoin is a popular payment method utilized by online gambling sites and Pay Per Head businesses especially in more restrictive markets, though digital currencies are now being embraced industrywide.

Bitcoin was trading about 4.25% higher on Tuesday morning at $19,207, according to data from industry site CoinDesk.  The all time high was $19,783 hit is December 2017.  From there the price dropped dramatically throughout 2018. 

With the likes of Fidelity Investments, Square and PayPal embracing Bitcoin, many experts see sustained stability in the cryptocurrency.

Last week, Americas Cardroom CEO Phil Nagy confirmed that Bitcoin represented some 90%–95% of all cashouts.  This has forced the popular online poker room to purchase millions in bitcoin a day to meet the demands of exiting players.

“We are constantly having to go out and buy bitcoin, lots. Lots. More than we’ve even had to before.” 

Holders often look to liquidate Bitcoin on sites amid dips, according to Bloomberg News.

A XRP flash crash affecting the popular Coinbase exchange did little to drag the price down outside of a brief drop towards $18000 Monday.   Coinbase had been trending on Twitter as a result.
