Bitcoin.com has teamed up with Canadian gaming platform Bravio Tech to launch global lotteries in Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) according to an official announcement, October 9. The initiatives are part of a mutual effort to boost Bitcoin Cash’s (BCH) adoption while exploring new innovative products for the e-gaming industry.
A New Lottery Game Experience
Bitcoin.com, a leading web portal in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) services market, has just announced a new partnership with Canadian online sweepstake lottery company Bravio Technologies to deliver a new gaming experience to their customers.
Bravio has entered into a Software Licensing Agreement with Saint Bitts LLC, the owner and operator of Bitcoin.com. Bravio will be in charge of developing and supplying a fully decentralized digital lottery featuring Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), fiat currency lotteries, and quick-fire customer abatement ancillary games. The new online gaming platform will then be integrated into Bitcoin.com.
According to the source, the game will include multiple forms of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash digital lotteries. Bitcoin.com e-wallet holders will gain access to traditional international lotteries, such as the U.S. PowerBall and the U.S. Mega Millions, with the unique feature of choosing the aforementioned cryptocurrencies as a payment option.
The gaming platform will benefit from smart contracts that fully remove human intervention so that payouts in BTC and BCH will be transparent, anonymous, and instantly transferred to the winner’s bitcoin.com account.
According to Paul Carroll, Bravio CEO, the new collaboration has been triggered by industry demands for new and innovative ways to pay, play and cash-out in gaming lotteries. Mr. Carroll has acknowledged the various opportunities that could arise from the application of blockchain solutions in the gaming market and sees the new partnership with bitcoin.com as a unique chance to scale for both the parties. Both companies said that the new platform will be targeting key gaming markets such as India and South East Asia.
Bitcoin.com is one of the world’s most recognized crypto-industry websites. Launched in June 2015 by crypto tycoon Roger Ver with the aim to boost adoption and growth of the Bitcoin network; Bitcoin.com through the years has made significant strides in the development of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) related services.
In November 2017, the Bitcoin.com wallet was ranked third on Google for search terms and was in the top five search results on the Google Play store with roughly 500,000 wallets created. Today Bitcoin.com has over 4.5 million wallet users.
