CoinCorner Checkout helps Casino Operators to accept Bitcoin payments from players

You may have seen from our recent post on Medium, that we’ve had a busy last quarter of 2019 launching our IOM GSC approved Bitcoin to fiat payment gateway — CoinCorner Checkout — in the eGaming sector.

We’ve had a lot of feedback and questions since launching the gateway and thought it might be helpful if we answered some of these in an open forum — so, why are casino operators becoming more Bitcoin-friendly…?

  1. New audiences Numbers of active Bitcoin users are often underestimated. Are you missing out on reaching Bitcoin-friendly gamers, purely by not offering a payment method that is more convenient for them?
  2. No chargebacks — Often considered to be one of the biggest challenges in the eGaming sector, chargebacks are eliminated when you accept Bitcoin. This is because Bitcoin transactions are irreversible.
  3. Competitive advantage — Bitcoin-friendly casinos are often seen as being at the forefront of technology development, having access to more players than their fiat-only competitors.
  4. Reduce currency conversion costs — Bitcoin is borderless, meaning that you aren’t left with the cost and hassle of converting several currencies to your preferred currency.
  5. No exposure to Bitcoin price volatility — When players pay with Bitcoin, CoinCorner locks the price for a period of time and instantly converts the funds to fiat (GBP/EUR) on your behalf.

At the risk of sounding cliché, the list goes on! We’ve touched on just 5 of the key benefits of accepting Bitcoin.

If you’d like to learn more about how CoinCorner Checkout works, or to see it in action (in a demonstration environment) — check out our demo platform CasinoCorner and follow the deposit process.
