The US Supreme Court opened the doors to legalizing sports betting across all 50 states this past May, including Tennessee and Kentucky providing each state comes up with their own laws.  With the current marriage between bitcoin and online gambling, it seems logical that local bookmakers and agents would like to have their clients paid in cryptocurrency as opposed to having to run around carrying pockets full of cash.  Bitcoin payments can be made in under an hour.

Tennessee State Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Brian Kelsey, R-Germantown would like to pass a law allowing sports betting but acknowledges the road ahead will be difficult.  Tennessee is traditionally not a gambling-friendly state.

"I plan to introduce legislation to allow sports betting in TN with the tax proceeds to go to K-12 education. It appears this will not require a constitutional amendment, but the legislative attorneys are still researching it," Kelsey tweeted immediately after the Supreme Court decision.

Kentucky, home to the USA's most prestigious horse race, the Kentucky Derby, could see sports betting as early as next year with a 3 percent tax tied in.  A pre-filed bill was introduced for the next session.

It's unlikely that any establishments permitted to offer sports betting will provide all the essential tools that have made Pay Per Heads so popular: Competitive bonuses and LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING, just to name a few.  Many Pay Per Heads also incorporate a live dealer casino and horse betting platform

1. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are peer-to-peer

With no middle man involved such as a credit card company facilitating the transaction, they are less penetrable and more private. 

2. Sports bettors, all players, are switching to Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency

Over 60% of sports bettors now deposit via Bitcoin.

That number should be closer to 70%, PayPerHead.com suggests.

The reason has nothing to do with gambling laws. What it has to do with is privacy.

3. Over 80% of sports bettors withdraw in Bitcoin

Sports bettors prefer to remain anonymous throughout the betting process. That includes depositing funds and making wagers. It also includes withdrawing funds.

The 80% number is a real number.

When an agent thinks about it, it makes sense. Why would a sports bettor want to receive payouts in a traditional currency?

Traditional currencies are regulated.

4. Eliminating last of the "risk" aspects of bookmaking

Digital currency is transferred across the Net securely.  No more carrying around wads of cash and risk being robbed or arrested.  While the Pay Per Head previously removed much of the liabilities associated with a bookmaking business (the wire room, records keeping, actual bet taking - all of this is now done by the PPH outside the US), money collection and payout was still primarily the local bookie or agent responsibility.  Cryptocurrencies have helped in this regard.
