The top cryptocurrencies for the week of October 3rd

While it’s true that Bitcoin has lost more than 53% of its value this year, that’s hardly news. The real story is the relative lack of volatility over the past few weeks.  After what seemed like a never-ending rollercoaster ride for the world’s most popular blockchain asset this year, Bitcoin seems to have found its footing, at least for now.

Although active traders and speculators will certainly miss the wild price swings, the relative stability is comforting for the rest of us.  If you use Bitcoin to book your next vacation on Expedia, shop at the Xbox store, or pay your satellite TV bill, you’ll definitely appreciate that stability.  Of course, no matter what happens to the price of bitcoin, you can continue to play online poker. Bitcoin is just one of the 60+ cryptocurrencies that we accept at Americas Cardroom.

Whether you’re a fan of tournaments or cash games, we make it easy to get your money in the game quickly and securely.  Since you can also withdraw your winnings using cryptos, you can count on prompt payments too.  And unlike other BTC poker sites, all our tables operate in US Dollars. That means you’ll always know how much cash is on the line at a glance.  We’ll handle the conversion when you handle your account or claim your winnings.

The best part is we don’t play favorites.  You can use whatever method works best for you.  Here are the top five cryptocurrencies used at Americas Cardroom this week:

    •    Bitcoin
    •    Litecoin
    •    Ether
    •    Bitcoin Cash
    •    Ether Classic

With a market capitalization of $3.4-Billion, Litecoin isn’t just the 7th-most valuable blockchain asset in the world. It’s also one of our top cryptocurrency options week after week at Americas Cardroom.  When you consider that it’s four times faster than Bitcoin and significantly cheaper to use, it is obvious why cryptocurrency poker players love it.

Ready to hit the tables? The convenience of cryptocurrencies is just one of the many reasons why you’ll want to sign up at Americas Cardroom.  New players can claim our 3-part welcome package, which now features a 200% deposit bonus up to $1,000 when you make your initial deposit using one of our 60+ cryptocurrency options.
