The top cryptocurrencies for the week of October 18th
If you’ve spent any time at our tables or browsing Americas Cardroom, you’ve probably noticed that we’re really into cryptocurrencies. Not only do we proudly accept over 60 cryptocurrencies options, but they now make up the bulk of our business.
Sure, you can use old fashioned payment methods if you want. Yet we’re not at all surprised that most of our players prefer the convenience, speed, and security that cryptos offer.
Here are the top five cryptocurrencies used at Americas Cardroom during the past week:
When it comes to cryptocurrencies, we don’t play favorites at Americas Cardroom. But if we did, Ripple would be a strong contender. It’s not just one of the world’s leading blockchain assets in terms of market cap, but its features and benefits are both second to none.
While Ripple has plenty of things going for it, you’ll probably be most impressed by its sheer speed. It takes just 4 seconds for a Ripple transaction to settle. In other words, it operates at more than 200 times the speed of Bitcoin. It’s even faster than MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. That speed advantage could prove instrumental in Ripple’s eventual mass adoption.
Of course, you don’t have to wait until Ripple, Steem, Dash, Digi Byte, Litecoin, and Ether go mainstream to harness the power of cryptocurrencies. There are exciting tournaments and cash games happening right now and every day of the week.
