For this year's FIFA World Cup, the best way to place bets online from Georgia will be with bitcoin using a cryptocurrency wallet that can be linked to one's banking account.  In May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that individual states can offer legalized sports betting but must first develop regulatory instruments before doing so.  For now, a few dozen of internationally licensed sportsbooks will accept wagers on this year's World Cup.

WILL GEORGIA WELCOME SPORTS BETTING?

Georiga is among those states least likely to allow sports betting as they currently are devoid of any gambling or horse track betting activities. 

“The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the decision. “Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each state is free to act on its own. Our job is to interpret the law Congress has enacted and decide whether it is consistent with the Constitution. ”

Needless-to-say, Georgia gamblers will need to rely on international websites to place all their World Cup bets

HOW TO USE BITCOIN AND OTHER CRYPTOCURRENCIES FOR BETTING THE FIFA WORLD CUP

The online betting site will simply have you send them the special address/token obtained from the Bitcoin wallet or exchange.

Still, there are those who believe the recent Supreme Court ruling will help pave the wave for casinos in the Peach Tree State.

You would select either SEND (to deposit funds) or RECEIVE (to withdraw funds).

Some exchanges allow customers to link directly with their bank accounts or PayPal.  The Bitcoin can be converted into the currency of your choice then transferred into your account in as little as 24 hours. 

You will want to verify all your information (including personal identification) with the exchange prior to sending and receiving funds.  Typically they will suggest setting up an authenticator on your mobile device for added security.
