Simply put: online gambling. Ever since the USA banned online gambling with real money the industry has been biding its time, waiting for a new way to get people playing again. Bitcoins are the perfect currency for online gambling and with people using BTC as poker chips, they'd convert regular currency to BTC and leave it and rather than cash it out. The "casinos" would operate most optimally if they stick to a pure BTC economy, rather than attempting to sell their earnings. Being "bitcoin rich" could actually be a good thing.

We need real gambling games like poker, not whatever the hell that is.

I'm talking about things like poker, craps, blackjack...i.e. casino style gambling. Lotteries are nice and all but poker keeps people coming back and it was really booming before getting shut down.

There are casinos as well, the Probiwon site was just the first thing to pop into my mind. I don't do the gambling, so I don't follow it too closely.

I would love to know what those sites are, and I am sure the old gambling site owner would love to know as well. if we had gambling money pour into the economy it would sky rocket.

Do you think we have to be prepared for a BTC related search engine incase google is forced or decideds to block BTC content? Its conspiracy-y and far in the future, nut im just curious.

As far as I know all the big poker sites were just recently raided and taken down by the US gov. There is actually a lot of potential here if someone can start a legitimate poker client that will only accept bit coin.

enormous potential this should be on the main forum. I dont see any other way aside from this to inject enormous amounts of money in such a short amount of time. ha! and they call us newbies....

Hmmm, lets see the "big three" of organized crime are: drugs, prostitution, and gambling

In the on line world I suppose we have to add child porn to that.

Somehow I don't think that ANY of those "opportunities" will encourage most of us to support BitCoin!

Actually I support drugs, prostitution, and gambling as activities that should be legal.

Child porn - no way.

Amen.
Why doesn't BTC just take over paypal? It's more reliable then dealing with the 60 day cancel button paypal has.

Tip me?

Allow me to refine my statements:

I actually support drugs, prostitution, gambling, and porn as activities that should be legal - for ADULTS.

Child porn should not be legal for anybody, even children, to produce or possess.

there are plenty of bitcoin gambling sites

I have referral links to a few of them on my site.

others don't have referral links, so I don't have them listed.  I think they've been taken off the bitcoin wiki, but I'll post them on my site sometime. 

Set up the same thing..

Gambling is often associated with organized crime, and rightly so - the mob built Las Vegas into what it is today, but that doesn't change the fact that people are going to gamble...and if they're doing it with bitcoins it only helps this currency take off while simultaneously driving up its value.

Prostitution isn't really an "online" commodity, but porn is. Porn made the web what it is today...believe it or not, it's the driving force behind a lot of the technologies we have. It also made optical media take off...everyone likes porn.

Even if it is these seedy things that push bitcoin into the mainstream, once it is a relevant currency known by the masses it will proliferate into other verticals like standard retail and maybe even B2B.

I'm with you on this one.
