For this year's FIFA World Cup, the best way to place bets online from Virginia 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 VIRGINIA WELCOME SPORTS BETTING?

Virginia has traditionally been slow to embrace any form of gambling.

Governor Ralph Northam said in a statement that his office was reviewing the Supreme Court's ruling and would review any legislation that might come from the General Assembly in the future.

Cabaniss thinks that if Virginia were to legalize sports gambling, the state could take in $100 million in taxes in the first year alone.

Needless-to-say, Virginia 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.

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.
