1  Economy / Gambling discussion / How people fund their Sportsbooks on: August 20, 2019, 10:45:50 AM
Hey guys.

Keen to get the thoughts of the community on the following and hopefully this may open an interesting discussion. I have many years of experience within the fiat gambling industry in terms of designing and managing sportsbooks but have little crypto experience. From what I can see there seems to be a split in terms of the type of operators in the market.

•   Traditional sportsbooks (usually BTC focused) that are predominantly self-funded or with private investment and offer customers the chance to bet with a wide range of the major cryptos available
•   Sportsbooks that launch their own ‘token’ which can be traded on an exchange, and used to raise initial funding for development/marketing/bankroll. I am guessing a lot of companies like to do this as their risk is limited and also gives a chance to get capital appreciation on the tokens also

Are there any legal implications for going down one route vs another (i.e. do Sportsbooks go down the token route because it enables them to trade in more jurisdictions given customers are betting with a ‘utility token’ versus a cryptocurrency coin?)

Which route do you prefer as an investor or customer?
