PokerStars to Offer Bitcoin?

PokerStars to Offer Bitcoin?

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

Although the rumours have yet to be confirmed by PokerStars, it's been claimed by Pokerfirma that the site could seen be introducing a Bitcoin payment option.

Over the last few months the cryptocurrency has become more and more popular and, according to Pokerfirma's recent article, the integration of a Bitcoin platform for PokerStars is at an advanced stage.

PokerStars' base in the Isle of Man has recently become a hub for Bitcoin exchanges and that should give the poker operator a fantastic network of contacts should it decide to introduce the currency to its platform.

Of course, Bitcoin poker sites certainly aren't a new phenomenon in the industry. In fact, Michael Mizrachi recently put his name to a Bitcoin poker site in anticipation of a surge of interest in the cryptocurrency heading into 2015.
