OneHash Announces the Release of New Bitcoin Dice Game

OneHash is a mutual bitcoin betting platform that aims to be the world’s leading mutual bitcoin betting platform. The platform focused on two broad kinds of betting, that is, sports betting and market, and since it is a mutual platform, all the odds are created by the user’s themselves as opposed to a centralized oddsmaker authority. It features bets on all major traditional sports like basketball, hockey, soccer, and rugby with esports betting being one of the latest additions to its neat portfolio. Market betting on OneHash’s platform involves betting on cryptocurrency prices as well as the prices on foreign currencies.

Sports betting aside, the platform also offers other gambling games including crypto slot titles and a dice game, the latter of which was just recently launched. Known as CyberDice, the new game is the platform’s attempt at keeping up with the competition in the Dice market. The dice game is a huge step towards strengthening the platform’s leadership position in the bitcoin entertainment market. Some of the best things that set CyberDash apart from all the rests is the improved gameplay and new features that it offers – these include regular contests, leaderboards, as well as chat communities which go a long way in strengthening the community and making it more vibrant.

More Features

The community features and contests that are featured in the game are just a part of the gaming experience but they are not all that makes it as good as the company claims it is. In essence, most of the other features are designed to appeal to the most demanding games who are always keen to see if the games they play have:

  • A provably fair system
  • Regular faucet
  • Low house edge
  • 100% mobile-friendliness
  • Unique design and UX
  • Affiliation program
  • 24/7 active support
  • Full security

Aside from all the technical details and comprehensive features, the game was further designed to offer the best possible experience, something the developer achieved by embedding it in the post-apocalyptic cyberpunk universe. The developers of CyberDash even introduced the Oracle concept which essentially foretells the future to players who are not afraid to know it. These added to the beautiful graphics and strong storytelling techniques make the game extremely fun to play.

For players who are concerned about fairness, CyberDice was designed for a wide range of users with absolute transparency being the project’s main inspiration. In fact, users are even able to check the integrity of every single roll and confirm that there is zero manipulation. The developer has also promised that the game will be improved constantly and many more features will be available in the next few weeks.

In fact, the company claims that its new and improved site offers load speeds of up to eight times what its competition has to offer – the new mobile-first site loads in just two seconds, something that the new generation of tech-savvy players will certainly appreciate especially because such load speeds were unheard of in the online casino gaming scene.

Crypto-powered casinos are becoming more and more popular which makes the market even more competitive than it was just a little over two years ago. As such, it is great to see that many of the companies are investing in delivering exceptional gaming experiences to their customers. Bitcasino.io’s efforts, in this regard, is definitely going to have a huge impact on the industry.

Putting the Player First

These include a decent number of configurable search filters, easy-to-use wallet options as well as wide range of revamped promotions designed to keep the players engaged and convince them to make the fast, fair and secure platform their go-to online gaming zone.

Still, on the customer-centric design of the casino, Bitcasino.io also incorporates machine learning into the revamped platform. With this feature, players will be offered games that align with their precise personal preferences. Furthermore, players will find it much easier to search for their favorite games based on the names, types, themes and even the game providers.

The new and improved site includes many other revamped features that will be implemented gradually due to the need for player feedback. However, in addition to the ones mentioned above, one of the improvements that players can look forward to in the coming weeks is the enhanced search feature that will allow them to look for games based on Return to Player (RTP) percentage, volatility, and hit frequency.

BTCXE Also in the Mix

Binance to Launch Combined Stablecoin Trading Platform

Binance, the largest crypto trader on the planet is set to release a combined market for stablecoins. This is great news for stablecoin enthusiasts not just because Tether (USDT), the most popular stablecoin is rumored to be part of the mix, but also because the sector is set to receive a lot of great publicity because of Binance’s actions – as it stands, the exchange does close to double the 24-hour volume of its nearest competitor, which makes a very great ambassador for all things crypto.

The so-called stablecoins have been all the buzz lately simply because they are pegged to solid assets such as the USD and they are growing even more popular as a number of reputable platforms have begun taking them more seriously. Tether (USDT), as mentioned earlier, is the most popular but its popularity tends to lean more towards the controversy that surrounds it.

Why Are Stablecoins Becoming Such a Big Deal?

Well, stablecoins operate based on a pretty simple mechanism, that is, a management team stores money on a bank account and this amount forms the basis of the coins that the management team of a stablecoin provider sells to its users. In essence, the system is entirely dependent on trust from its users. By trusting coin platforms, the users also have a great deal to benefit from with one of the most notable ones being the fact that they will never need to go through the lengthy processes of depositing funds from crypto exchanges back to their bank accounts anymore.

Stablecoins also allow their users to store funds in USD-denominated coins when not trading is going on hence their name. Other than Tether, there are a number of other dollar-pegged stablecoins on the market. However, even combined they are still not capable of covering the whole market once they pick up the pace of their growth. Other popular stablecoins include USD Coin and Paxos Standard. Binance believes that more stablecoins will appear from other platforms in the near future with some even being pegged to non-USD fiat currencies such as the Euro or Sterling Pounds.

Binance’s Plans

In its new joint stablecoin market venture, Binance has plans to launch a platform and there are very strong indications that Tether (USDT) will be one of them. The company further plans to change its ticker to USDⓈ with the S symbol in a circle representing specifically stablecoins on the platform.

The cryptocurrency exchange is currently actively preparing for a stable market for the new stablecoins – in fact, it appears that the company already has a solid operational scheme or plan for the period when the assets eventually begin to flood the market. This is very possible due to the very low lows that the crypto market has been dealing with lately.

Coinbase Now Valued at $8 Billion Despite BTC Price Plunge

Bitcoin just turned ten but this year has been quite shaky for the digital currency. Still, while there have certainly been significant lows with regards to its price, there have also been a number of great things it has brought forth for the thriving and equally resilient crypto community. One of the biggest beneficiaries of this has been Coinbase, a cryptocurrency exchange whose value has been skyrocketing despite the bitcoin slump the industry has experienced in the past few weeks.

On Tuesday, October 30, the San Francisco-based company officially announced a $300 million fundraising round, which, as it turns out, brings the company’s new valuation at $8 billion. This makes it one of the most highly valued exchanges in the United States and among the top ones in the world. The $300 million deal is a massive increase from Coinbase’s previous valuation, which was $1.6 billion in August 2017.

Led by Tiger Global Management, the Series E round included participants such as Wellington Management, Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain and Y Combinator. Coinbase plans to use the funds from these series to “accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrencies and digital assets.” Already, these plans seem to be already paying off since the company has already landed the No. 10 spot on the 2018 CNBC Disruptor 50 list, something that has been partly attributed to perfect timing – Coinbase took advantage of the huge opportunity that was created when bitcoin skyrocketed to nearly $20,000 towards the end of 2017.

Catering to Institutional Investors

Cryptocurrencies, in general, have had one of hell of a year losing over 65 percent of their value due to less retail interests. Coinbase, on the other hand, managed to invest immensely in its master plan to cater to institutional investors which has been a defining factor of the company’s success in the world of crypto. In 2018, the company has launched a suite of offerings for tailored specifically for professional investors. Coinbase Custody, one of these offerings, has just recently received regulatory approval from the New York Department of Financial Services.

In addition to that, the company also recently partnered with Circle, another crypto-based company for a project aimed at supporting a digital currency known as “stable coin” which is being marketed as a U.S. dollar-backed cryptocurrency. This particular plan plays into Coinbase’s grand plan to bridge the gap between cryptocurrencies and fiat currency in all regulated markets as well as building out its custody offering “to bring more institutional funds into the space.”

“We see hundreds of cryptocurrencies that could be added to our platform today and we will lay the groundwork to support thousands in the future,” Coinbase President and Chief Operating Office Asiff Hirji added.

Coinbase’s equity and valuation should help the company achieve all this and more by allowing it to add new assets to its very popular trading platform.
