Choosing the Right Coin for You - Beginner's Guide to Cryptocurrencies

When we opened our virtual doors in 2017, Stake Casino was one of the first cryptocurrency casinos available. As crypto enthusiasts, we staked our bets on this exciting technology, believing in the power of decentralised finance and the opportunities it creates.

The entire cryptocurrency world might seem like a minefield that’s difficult to navigate, from non-fungible tokens and blockchain technology to crypto exchanges and the crypto market. However, when it comes to crypto gambling, it’s not that different from using a fiat currency (regular money like USD, EUR, or GBP) to place your bets.

Whether you’re an online slot game enthusiast, here to experience the immersive gameplay of live dealer games , wanting to place a bet on your favorite sports , or sit down to a virtual table game like poker or blackjack , it’s safe and easy to do so from your crypto wallet at Stake.com .

What is Cryptocurrency & What is Crypto Gambling?

Cryptocurrency is a digital payment system that uses encryption to secure crypto transactions. It operates on a decentralised ledger without a central governing authority, and investors keep their crypto assets in digital wallets.

Coins are created by using computing power to solve complex mathematical problems, a process known as mining. As a reward for this work, new cryptocurrency units are generated and added to the blockchain network.

As a Stake.com customer, you can securely deposit and withdraw funds with faster transactions and lower fees using digital currencies.

Crypto gambling platforms operate in essentially the same way as betting with fiat currencies, except that crypto casinos require crypto payments rather than traditional payment methods to fund your account.

When you’ve funded your account and are ready to start playing your favourite games from the wide selection of top game providers like Pragmatic Play and Games Global , you simply select your wager amount in crypto coins using the game’s console and collect your prizes in the same currency. Whether you’re into classic casino games or immersive adventure slots, crypto casino games offer the same great gameplay you’re looking for.

The key thing to remember is that cryptocurrencies are much more volatile than fiat currencies, so the value of your coins can fluctuate in keeping with their market value.
