U.S. Racing, which oversees the Derby, has announced that for the first time the Kentucky Derby will be accepting bets in Bitcoin.

Last year the Derby had $100 million in total bets and U.S Racing predicts they will break that record this year when all the bets are tallied.

It is very interesting. Before crypto betting happen only in online casinos, but now it gone to the real world. New win to bitcoin!  I am impatient to know how it is going to work on practice.

Yes, there's one land based casino in Vegas who's accepting bitcoin as well:

(https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3377535.0)

So don't be surprise if there will be a lot of land based or sports event like Kentucky who will be accepting bitcoin. Of course there's still a lot of question like withdrawing or if KYC is needed. Don't be impatient because I'm pretty sure this is going to be on our favor in the end.

Anyone here placed their bets? I'm thinking of betting on horse race for the first time in my life - Mendelssohn is my choice. Only 6 hours left. You can bet with bitcoins on usracing.com
