News Content

When Stake.com launched in 2017, we were one of the first crypto casinos, and we’ve become a go-to platform for both casual and expert players ever since. There are plenty of crypto gambling platforms today, but none with a history as rich as ours.

Sometimes the cryptocurrency world may seem daunting, but we're here to show you that it’s not that complicated. This article will help you navigate the crypto space and assist you on your crypto gambling journey.

Whether you’re here to spin online slots , wind down with live casino , or place a live sports bet on your favourite team, you can do so safely with the crypto funding options here at Stake crypto casino and online sportsbook .

What are Cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrency is a digital payment operating on a ledger and employing encryption to secure transactions. Unlike fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies are decentralised, with no central entity to maintain their value.

Cryptocurrency is generated through mining, which uses computers to generate crypto coins.

Contrary to popular belief, crypto didn’t start with Bitcoin ; there were many iterations of digital assets back in the 1990s. However, Bitcoin first solved the double spending conundrum and used a decentralised network to verify crypto transactions.

What this means to you is that you can confidently deposit and withdraw funds from your Stake.com account using cryptocurrency payments that are fast, secure, and with lower transaction fees.

What is a Crypto Casino & Crypto Sports Betting Site?

Simply put, cryptocurrency casinos are online casinos that accept crypto deposits from players’ cryptocurrency wallets as a method of funding accounts to allow gambling to take place online.

This lets you play the latest and greatest casino games from leading casino game providers such as Twist Gaming , Red Tiger , Relax Gaming , PG Soft , Games Global , and Wazdan or even try out our Stake Originals .

You also can use our online sportsbook to bet with your crypto bankroll, including the latest NFL games, soccer , basketball , NHL , baseball , tennis , and even Esports like League of Legends , and Dota 2 .

There are many advantages to using cryptocurrencies, which we’ll look into in further depth. But first, let’s take a quick look at Bitcoin and the concept of these digital currencies.
