Most pay per head agents should have already switched to Bitcoin or some other digital currency like Ethereum.

If you are an agent that has switched to Bitcoin, but has had trouble convincing players to switch to Bitcoin or Ethereum, keep reading to find out the top 3 reasons sports bettors should switch to Bitcoin or Ethereum.

Why Should Bettors Switch to Bitcoin or Ethereum?

The key to understanding Bitcoin is to understand block technology. Blockchain technology is pretty much a network of computers that talk to each other to perform transactions of value.

It doesn’t just have to be a digital currency like Bitcoin. It could be a contract that changes hands. It could be anything that can be digitized that represents value.

The reason it’s called block technology is because each time a transaction happens, the transaction is added onto a block that becomes part of the blockchain.

Once a block is set, it’s unalterable. It can’t be changed.

Reason #1 - No credit card fees

A blockchain doesn’t use a centralized system. There’s no hub from which transactions go in, and then from where transactions go out.

For example, when a sports bettor uses his or her credit card to load up his account, the credit card company ingests the transaction request into a centralized system.

The company then determines that it’s a cash transaction. Credit card fees charge for cash transactions.

Because Bitcoin is peer-to-peer, meaning it’s based on blockchain technology, there is no centralized system to call it a cash transaction.

No cash transactions mean no credit card fees.

Reason #2 - Safer deposits with Bitcoin

Since Bitcoin transactions are based on a blockchain (the Bitcoin blockchain), and are also peer-to-peer, it becomes very difficult for anyone to hack the transaction once it begins.

Once the transaction is complete, it’s pretty much impenetrable. Nobody can change the transaction.

That’s why it’s safer than using government backed currencies.

Reason #3 - Bitcoin is anonymous

Peer-to-peer means that the only individuals who know you own certain Bitcoins are the individuals you transact your Bitcoins with.

There isn’t a ledger at the Bitcoin bank that says how much money you have. Each Bitcoin has a specific code. Even an eighth of a Bitcoin has a specific code.

There’s no way to confuse one sports bettor’s Bitcoins with any other sports bettor’s Bitcoins.
