The top cryptocurrencies for the week of May 1st

The top cryptocurrencies for the week of May 1st

Did you cash in on Bitcoin’s rise this week?

The world’s leading cryptocurrency was on a tear and managed to break $9,200 on Thursday. That’s as high as it’s been since February! And even though the world’s leading blockchain asset has shed some of its recent gains, there’s lots to look forward to this month.

In case you haven’t heard, the third Bitcoin halving will take place this month. That means that Bitcoin is effectively cutting the number of Bitcoins awarded for processing transactions into two. As so-called experts try to predict the price of bitcoin after the halving, we aren’t particularly concerned with the day-to-day fluctuation of cryptocurrencies.

Don’t get me wrong. At Americas Cardroom we’re huge fans of Bitcoin. In fact, we’ve gone all in on the blockchain by accepting over 60 different cryptocurrency options. Here are the top five used on our site this week:

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