A few weeks ago, Bookmaker.eu, in business since 1986, became the first online sportsbook to begin accepting the widest range of cryptocurrencies.  This includes Bitcoin cash.

It’s interesting to note that Gambling911.com can confirm that one of the larger North American facing online bookmakers will begin focusing more heavily on Bitcoin Cash while steering its customers away from Bitcoin.

So what is Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash is essentially a clone of the existing Bitcoin blockchain, which allows individuals to conduct anonymous digital transactions,​ with one important feature: additional block size capacity (more on that later). Those who owned Bitcoin before the split now own an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash, meaning Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin each now have 16.5 million units in circulation.  This split, often referred to as the Bitcoin Fork, occurred earlier in the summer.

Along with Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency list that BookMaker.eu now accepts includes Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Litecoin, Monero, Dash, FirstBlood, Aragon, Basic Attention Token, Bancor, Blackcoin, Bitchares, Civic, Clams, Decred, Digibyte, Dogecoin, Edgeless, EOS, Ether Classic, Factoids, FunFair, GameCredits, Gnosis, Golem, Matchpool, Komodo, LBRY Credits, Namecoin, NEM, Numeraire, Nxt, OmiseGo, Potcoin, Augur, Reddcoin, IExec, Salt, Saicoin, Status, Startcoin, SingularDTV, Swarm City, WeTrust, Vericoin, Vertcoin, Waves, Wings, Ripple, Zcash, 0x, Bitcoin Dark, DigixDao, district0x, Emercoin, Iconomi, lisk, Maidsafe, Omni, Nubits, Novacoin, Tenx, Peercoin, Qtum, StorjX, Steem, TokenCard, Tether, Voxels and Counter Party.

Cryptocurrencies now account for as much as 40% of all online gambling transactions in the so-called “grey” markets, those that do not always openly allow all forms of Web gambling. 

BookMaker Sportsbook is a market-setting company in terms of timeliness of odds and exotic or novelty proposition bets for all sports. It offers sports odds, casino, horse racing and poker.
