Bitcoin-funded online casino turned a $572,000 profit after six months of operation

http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/23/3906910/bitcoin-online-casino-turned-a-572000-profit-after-six-months

...
The digital currency known as Bitcoin has recently found a home in online casinos as a way to circumvent the government's crackdown on digital gambling.
...
While there's no question that these numbers don't come close to the business a standard casino might do, it seems that Bitcoin has at least provided a way for online gamblers to get back into the game. Whether this strategy will clash with Bitcoin's attempts to go mainstream remains to be seen.

There is no "Bitcoin's attempts to go mainstream remain to be seen". There is a bitcoin coalition of some sort, vague and hard to define. Their common interest is in furthering bitcoin's spread for profit and glory. They do not agree on everything, do not share political ideology, etc.
