SoftSwiss report shows crypto gambling tripled in 2020
A fresh report from the popular gaming aggregator SoftSwiss has shown that crypto gambling tripled in 2020 when compared to 2019. Government currency gambling establishments also reported great growth thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, but crypto betting blew those numbers out of the water.
According to the report, crypto gambling sites running on SoftSwiss’ platform saw 90% of players using bitcoin, with the other 10% spread out between various other cryptocurrencies, including ethereum, litecoin and dogecoin.
All gambling sites saw a noticeable uptick in player numbers thanks to the pandemic, so it will be interesting to see the results for 2021 to see if the trend towards cryptocurrency gambling is still on the increase or if it was just a byproduct of the COVID-19 situation.
