SealsWithClubs Closes

Saturday, 21 February 2015

Bitcoin-only poker room SealsWithClubs has announced that it is closing its virtual doors with immediate effect.

In a statement released on Friday, the site revealed that “on approximately February 11th, 2015, several events occurred related to operational security that we consider to indicate SealsWithClubs now operates in a perpetual state of jeopardy.”

Management confirmed that Seals With Clubs is 'completely solvent' but that players should 'withdraw their funds as soon as possible'.

They added that the they didn't think that any of the Bitcoin wallets used in operations to be compromised or lost but that “the majority vote of the ownership and team agree that shutting down operations is the best move for safety and security purposes.”

The statement also confirmed that SealsWithClubs chairman Bryan Micon will carry on developing a Bitcoin poker offering.

"We believe Micon will have the resources at his disposal to bring the new site up, backed by the new SwC 2.0 software package, at a rapid pace," read the release.
