FanDuel, the large American betting company, has announced that it will start accepting bitcoins for sports betting through cooperation with the cryptocurrency payment company BitPay.
It is reported that FanDuel users will be able to make deposits in bitcoins using a personal computer or mobile application. Note that this is not the first initiative of the bookmaker related to cryptocurrencies – last year the company launched a football competition, the winners of which received an award in bitcoins.
“NFL Football is one of the most popular sporting events to watch and the start of the football season makes it a perfect time to introduce Bitcoin to these fans. We wanted to have the option in place for Bitcoin users to deposit cryptocurrency into their FanDuel accounts and take advantage of the daily fantasy sports games,” Sonny Singh, BitPay’s Chief Commercial Officer, said.
Recently, Filipino boxer and Senator Manny Pacquiao launched his own cryptocurrency, which was also supported by footballer Michael Owen and Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
