San Jose, Costa Rica – January 9, 2015 – Getting money onto an online poker account has now officially become more convenient. Leading US online poker site Americas Cardroom today announced a groundbreaking move in payment processing. The poker site today becomes one of the first poker rooms to accept Bitcoin for deposits, with maximum daily transactions as high as $1,000 and minimum deposits as low as $5.
“At Americas Cardroom, we’re always looking for new ways to make the lives of poker players easier. That’s why we’ve added Bitcoin to our lineup of payment methods,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “The payment system is now available in the Americas Cardroom cashier for all our players.”
Bitcoin, a peer-to-peer payment system and type of virtual currency originally introduced in 2009, took the world by storm in 2013. It is open-source, which means that its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part.
Today, Bitcoin ATMs can be found in several locations in North America and around the world. It’s only a matter of time before more Bitcoin ATMs open up in the United States.
For now Bitcoin deposits are available at Americas Cardroom from the Cashier section of the poker client. The US-friendly site announced that withdrawals will follow in the next few days.
Bitcoin deposits are immediately converted to US dollars and available for real money play at Americas Cardroom’s online poker tables.
On February 22nd, Americas Cardroom will be guaranteeing $1 million in Winning Millions. Players can buy directly in for $500+$40 or find a low buy-in qualifier for just a few dollars.
