The top cryptocurrencies for the week of January 15th

At 25 days and counting, the US government shutdown is already the longest in American history. Yet if you live elsewhere or hate the very idea of government, this is hardly good news. The threats to the US and global economy are undeniable.

Whether the next economic downturn is months or years away, there’s no doubt that investors will be looking for safe havens, wherever they can find them. While gold is an obvious choice, could the tide finally turn and make cryptos fashionable again?

Of course, only time will reveal where today’s top cryptocurrency options end up. At the same time, you don’t need a crystal ball to make the most of cryptos. Did you know that Americas Cardroom accepts more than 60+ cryptos for both deposit and withdrawal? The best part is you can start playing cryptocurrency poker in a matter of minutes, even if you’re not yet familiar with digital currencies.

Here are the top five cryptocurrency options used by players during the past week:

1. Bitcoin
2. Litecoin
3. Ether
4. Bitcoin Cash
5. Ripple

If you are a crypto user or just a regular reader of our weekly blog, Litecoin should be more than familiar. There are lots of reasons why our players love Litecoin. The cryptocurrency option is four times faster than Bitcoin and cheaper to use too. Despite a recent correction, Litecoin still has a market cap of close to two billion dollars. Unlike Bitcoin, Litecoin’s creator isn’t afraid to be in the spotlight, which could stand to give the currency great credibility and transparency over the long haul.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of Litecoin, Bitcoin, Ether, Ripple, Steem, Monero, or some other cryptocurrency option. We don’t play favorites at Americas Cardroom. The choice really is yours when it comes to cryptos. Yet we’re also doing our part to make it worth your while. If you’re a new player, you can claim a special crypto bonus for a limited time.

When you use a cryptocurrency to make your first deposit, we’ll sweeten the deal with a 200% bonus up to $1,000. But there’s more. As part of our welcome package for new depositors, we’ll also give you 20 days of free cash up to $50 and at least one entry in a $250 freeroll.
