1  Economy / Gambling / Re: ★BetBTC★ Sportsbook | Bitcoin Sports Betting | Since 2014 | Instant Withdrawals on: August 17, 2021, 02:33:42 PM
Can you guys remove the 1mBTC minimum withdrawal please? I don't have many funds in there but would be nice to get it out!

If not, would I have to deposit more to be able to withdraw everything?
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Best crypto gambling sites that accept players from USA! on: July 29, 2021, 02:24:38 PM

Thank you for sharing....it seems that several gambling sites operating in the USA listed on the link you show, are familiar to us in this forum.

Such as: BitCasino.io, Sportsbet, SWC, Coinbet etc.

I thought earlier you wanted to offer a new game on your site, oh no, I was wrong, I saw a site that we already know here, however, This is also good information for those who don't know which gambling sites are good in the USA, in determining their bets, particularly sports betting.

Sorry for the confusion - this wasn't mean to be an undiscovered gem of a sportsbook.

Just wanted to show people a clear table of where they should sign if they're from America.

While crypto gambling is supposed to be open to anyone from anywhere, the reality (as we all know) isn't quite the same.

Players from USA will regularly find certain sites to be blocked in their location.

You can of course use a VPN to get around this, but one often hears stories of bettors having their accounts closed and funds seized if they do this and are asked for ID. A scary thought.

So, after much research, we've come up with the best safe places you can play as an American. Here's what we found:



Of all the crypto gambling sites we recommend, 10 wouldn't allow American players, 5 would and 5 turn a blind eye to VPNs.

If you want to read our recommendations in full, you can do so here:

Any American players struggling to find a crypto sportsbook give me a shout and I'll be happy to help.

Good luck with your bets!
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Crypto Gambling Licenses - What they actually mean on: June 25, 2021, 12:47:40 PM
When looking to sign up to a crypto sportsbook or casino I often take comfort from the fact they have a license. However, I've never actually looked into what those licenses mean. So I did a bit of digging and found out some very interesting information.

The licenses basically mean nothing!

I looked at 4 different licenses; Curacao, Malta, Costa Rica and Montenegro.

The vast majority of operators have the Curacao license which has a cost of around $36,000 as a one-off upfront payment, then its $6,000 a month every month for the first 2 years, which is a grand total of $180,000. This license is basically the bare minimum. In fact, a condition of the license is that the operator can't operate in Curacao - which should speak volumes.

BetBTC is the only sportsbook to have a Costa Rica license. Although this "license" is basically just a company registration.

Cloudbet is the only sportsbook to have a Montenegro license. This is the only license which does carry a bit of weight, so fair play to Cloudbet. It costs around $390,000 and does have a regulatory body which will look into your complaints.

The Malta license as its too expensive and too much work for a bit of paper that carries no real weight or protection for players.

If you're interested, you can read the full report I wrote here:
https://bitedge.com/blog/crypto-gambling-licenses/

Do you think someone needs to offer a legit crypto gambling license to give consumers more protection? Or are we ok where we are know?

Disclaimer: A lot of these sportsbooks and casinos have operated for years and have integrity. Having signed up and played at a lot of them, I've very rarely if ever had any issues. This is purely just to show you what lies behind the licenses they have.
5  Economy / Gambling / Crypto sportsbook with highest max bets revealed on: June 04, 2021, 03:14:50 PM
If you're a high roller, it can often be frustrating to not know how large a bet you'll be offered until you actually place the bet.

Customer service staff aren't able to help - not because they are withholding information from you, but because they genuinely don't know what each customer's max bet will be.

After a bit of investigation, these are the max bet I was offered with the main 3 sportsbooks:



A newish anonymous account was used for the above test. Limits at the same sportsbook vary widely from bettor to bettor depending on how risky your account seems to the sportsbook.

I did write about this here - https://bitedge.com/sports-betting-guide/high-roller-crypto-betting/ - feel free to check it out if you're interested!

I hope this helps any big bettors looking to make a decision on a crypto sportsbook.
6  Economy / Gambling / When is it profitable to bet for the TrustDice Jackpot? on: May 28, 2021, 01:20:38 PM
With a jackpot which increases until it's won, TrustDice's big prize will allow for mathematically profitable betting.

We've ran the numbers and worked out exactly when you should be looking to get on this.

When working this out, we looked at two methods:

* Method 1: Estimating the cost of rolling enough times to win
* Method 2: Finding where expected value is positive

From this we worked out exactly:

* How big the jackpot needs to be for you to be profitable
* What your stake should be
* How much you should be in line to win

If you're interested, feel free to have a read here - https://bitroll.com/crypto-dice-guide/when-is-it-profitable-to-bet-for-the-trustdice-jackpot

As always, feedback is welcome!

Thanks for the positive feedback!

There are no plans to make this a paid service, we have previously run other subscriptions for free and not converted to a charged service.

The design is neat and it is managed carefully. About the esports in your site, does king of glory game the rip off from LOL?. I am a player of games like that like dota 2, ML but I haven't know a sportsbook that does have ML to bet. As far as I'm concern, I only see 5 esports games to bet. Keep it up by the way.

Yes, King of Glory is very similar to LOL! I've not seen any crypto sportsbooks offering odds on ML unfortunately. Cloudbet tends to have the best esports coverage, so keep an eye out there?
9  Economy / Gambling / Re: Positive Expected Value Bet Alerts - Get an edge on the crypto sportsbooks on: May 18, 2021, 01:55:39 PM
Loved the site design and what you are offering here. Free value bets is easily the biggest pro of your site. Happy to see many popular crypto sportsbooks covered here since many rival sites usually include very few popular ones.

I like the fact that you are offering Twitter alerts too. Research must still be done, but these alerts will definitely help out. Will be checking your alerts regularly from now onwards.

Great to hear. Hopefully we can help you on your way to profitable betting!
10  Economy / Gambling / Positive Expected Value Bet Alerts - Get an edge on the crypto sportsbooks on: May 18, 2021, 01:25:16 PM
Here's a helping hand for anyone trying to beat the bookie long term.

Weve created an instant email alert which detects value bets.

We find outliers where one sportsbook offers significantly higher odds than the rest of the market. These are positive expected value bets, so youll have an edge on the sportsbook and a good chance at long term profit!

The last 6 alerts have given the following expected value:

+8.89%
+7.29%
+8.08%
+7.15%
+7.13%
+9.99%

This is all a completely free service. Full information and sign-up form can be found here - https://bitodds.com/crypto-value-bet-alerts/
We also tweet the alerts here - https://twitter.com/Bitedgecom

The alerts come from the following crypto sportsbooks; Cloudbet, Stake, Sportsbet, Nitrogen, BetBTC and Betcoin.

Any feedback is welcome, and I hope you can be a successful long term bettor our the alerts!
11  Economy / Gambling / Cloudbet, Stake or Sportsbet - Which is best? on: April 21, 2021, 11:47:06 AM
The crypto sportsbook game looks to now be dominated by three clearly superior sites; Cloudbet, Stake or Sportsbet. There are other good sportsbooks around, but these three are on another level in terms of promotions, usability, customer service etc.

But which of the three do you prefer and use yourself? Or is there another sportsbook you prefer?

The biggest problem arising with the big boys is the slow creep of KYC and other regulations. The lack of these regulations is obviously a huge positive of crypto gambling in general so is the detriment of these sportsbooks to lose that.

I did write this to show the differences between the three - https://bitedge.com/blog/cloudbet-stake-and-sportsbet-are-lightyears-ahead-of-the-rest/

If you're struggling to pick give it a read and it may offer some clarity.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2020/21 on: April 21, 2021, 11:35:27 AM
Can anyone see why Granada are such a big price to beat Eibar tomorrow night?

From what I can see, Granada are a decent upper-mid table side, playing at home to bottom of the league Eibar. Eibar do have a decent record against Granada, but surely they have enough to get past a side who haven't won away in the league since the start of December 2020?

Anyone got any ideas as to why they're priced at 2.4?! (Odds source: https://bitodds.com/spanish-la-liga/?event=160976394471748707)
13  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Whos more powerful? The players, Fans or Clubs on: April 21, 2021, 11:27:32 AM
This recent European Super League affair has shown the power the fans have. Undoubtably they are they most powerful as they're the ones that ultimately fund everything (merchandise, tickets, TV subscriptions, viewership etc.).

The difficulty for fans has always been grouping together to get a consistent opinion and therefore force the hand.

The ESL has proved if they do all gang up, no one can go against them. But on issues like VAR the consensus is too scattered so the powers that be have their way.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: my gripe with the term "crash" on: March 26, 2021, 03:11:45 PM
100% agree. A few occasions I've had to tell my Bitcoin friends to reign in their liberal use of the word crash. Receiving messages like "Bitcoin has crashed again" when it's down 4.5% gets me really angry haha.

20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Crypto Gambling and Fantasy Sports - A Gap in the Market? on: March 02, 2021, 02:07:42 PM
I don't really agree with the author because I read an article that says that fantasy sports are in high demand among rich people. In addition, as correctly noted sportbettor there is more than one site offering betting services in the world of fantasy sports. Of course, if you compare it to poker or blackjack, it's a drop in the ocean.

Fantasy sports are in demand across many demographics - not just rich people. Fantasy sports being in high demand suggests a crypto sportsbook should take it on and try.

Interesting to hear ralle14 say Sportsbet did try and it didn't work due to lack of interest. Consider the high demand for the games why do you think this is? Is it because players have easier access to actual sports betting markets through crypto? Or is there little cross over between crypto enthusiasts and fantasy sports players? Interested to hear your opinions.
