The top cryptocurrencies for the week of September 28th

After a 4% rebound over the past 24 hours, Bitcoin is on track to finish the week roughly where it started.  While this small bounce should silence the bitcoin bears from claiming the sky is falling, the bulls aren’t celebrating in the streets either.

Even though the current $6,700 price is 15% higher than the lows we saw during the summer, traders and analysts are wondering when the currency is going to finally take flight again. What happens next is anyone’s guess, but there has been positive crypto news this week that might help put the spring in bitcoin’s step this fall.

Earlier this week Google announced that they are lifting part of their ban on cryptocurrency ads, which has been in effect since June.  As you might recall, this sweeping ban caused cryptocurrencies to tank when it was first announced. 

Google will continue to bar ads for wallets, trading advice, and initial coin offerings when this new policy change begins in October.  Still, this an obvious sign that cryptos are gaining legitimacy.

On a lighter note, Bitcoin has been added to the Merriam-Webster Scrabble Dictionary. It’s true, you can finally earn your 11 points by spelling the world’s most popular blockchain asset.  Yet there’s more to this story than fun and games.  This addition goes to show you just how much awareness there is for bitcoin.  Let’s not forget that you can’t have wide acceptance without awareness.

Most people know that we always love giving Bitcoin the attention it deserves, but we actually accept more than 60 different cryptocurrencies at Americas Cardroom.  We’re proud to never play favorites, so you can use what works best for you.  Here are the top five cryptos used on our site during the past week:

1 Bitcoin
2 Litecoin
3 Ether
4 Bitcoin Cash
5 DigiByte

With a market cap of $273-million, DigiByte is just the 35th most valuable cryptocurrency option in the world. Yet you shouldn’t be particularly surprised to find it among our top five.  The blockchain asset is best known for its speed, stability and security, but DigiByte is more than just a digital currency.  It aims to facilitate data analysis and keep IoT (Internet of Things) devices secure.

It doesn’t matter if you prefer DigiByte, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, or one of the dozens of other cryptocurrency options we accept at Americas Cardroom.  We always make it simple to bring your bankroll to our tables and cash out after your next big cryptocurrency poker win.

At Americas Cardroom, we’re not only known for our huge tournaments and action-packed cash games.  We also give our new players a warm welcome package.  When you sign up and deposit using a crypto, we’ll give you a 200% bonus up to $1,000, an entry into at least one $250 new depositor freeroll, and $20 days of free cash up to $50.
