Ethereum-Based Crypto Casinos - The Future of Online Gambling

The world of cryptocurrency is rapidly changing how people pay for goods and services. One of the most popular crypto-based methods of exchange is Ethereum. With the rise in popularity comes an increase in demand for Ethereum-specific virtual casinos. An Ethereum casino (ETH) is an online gambling platform in which the altcoin ETH is used as currency. Online casinos that accept the altcoin are similar to other online casinos, offering games such as poker, sports betting and table games.

The rise of Bitcoin brought with it a new era in online gambling, as casinos began to adopt other cryptocurrencies. One of the most popular is ETH. Its unique method of computing transactions is a significant industry innovation, and it offers the most secure platform. Moreover, it's the second most traded cryptocurrency in the world - currently trading at $1259.

Gambling with Ethereum vs Other Cryptocurrencies

The primary advantage of using ETH is that it has no transfer fees. Mostly, casinos often charge as much as 7.5% to accept other payment methods. Besides a meagre transaction fee for third parties and miners, its transactions usually do not carry any fees.

ETH transactions are faster than any other cryptocurrency and can be completed in approximately 15 seconds on average, which is a lot quicker than many other transactions that can typically be made. Another exciting feature is the use of smart contracts by recording the signatures of both sides. So, when you place a bet on the website, it is final. No party has an option to cancel or change the transactions before the completion of the session. This helps establish trust between users, which fosters trust in the online casino.

Future of Ethereum Gambling

Now that cryptocurrency is part of the mainstream and continues to gain popularity for online gambling, ETH is likely to grow in popularity as well.

This anonymity makes Ethereum casinos more attractive than traditional ones, mainly because players don't have to worry about anyone knowing how much money they've earned online or receiving spam from them in the future. Moreover, It's among the safest, fastest, and most secure ways to transfer money online.

ETH's decentralisation and security are unlikely to change shortly. In addition, smart contracts can help players limit their risk by setting limits on spending amounts, times, and even the number of bets placed. Online gamblers value the advantages that such limitations provide.

Final Thoughts

The cryptocurrency Ethereum appears to have a promising future in online gambling. In terms of popularity, it is in the neighbourhood of Bitcoin. However, the ETH network provides a faster and more convenient way to gamble online since transactions are processed at a much quicker rate than those conducted in Bitcoin's blockchain.

In 2018, ETH market capitalisation reached its highest level. It did not cross Bitcoin's market capitalisation then, but it could pass Bitcoin if another such altcoin run occurs in the near future. Finally, the use of ETH tokens at online casinos will not increase dramatically overnight, but it is undoubtedly on the rise.
