Crypto Poker Club launches on April 20 th 2018 and will support both
Bitcoin & Ethereum smart contracts. The game looks to transform the
online poker industry by being more secure, fairer and providing higher
profitability compared to traditional poker rooms.
Online poker has truly boomed since the early 2000’s and has been
growing ever since. In recent years however this growth has slowed down
with one of the largest poker groups announcing a year on year loss for
poker despite all their other games performing better. Is the poker
Crypto Poker Club believes there are 3 fundamental problems that
need to be addressed. The first being the game engines and features
which have not seen dramatic improvements over the years. This
includes card shuffling and player security.
If you compare online poker in 2008 and in 2018, the difference is
merely graphic in the most significant cases. Nearly the same identical
game features are present a decade later.
The second fundamental problem is game profitability. With massive
bonus cuts by more than half and higher increases in rake (game fees), it
is tough for regular poker players to make as much profit as they used to.
The third problem is player’s security and trust. With scandals like
money laundering throughout the largest poker sites, collusion
problems, ponzi schemes and even players data being shared in high
stakes games for cheating. There is an obvious problem when it comes to
what player’s data is shared, what can be manipulated and the overall
management of player funds.
Blockchain is the solution
To tackle big problems, you need a big solution. Blockchain technology
opens the doors to a more safer, secure and verifiable game which cannot
be tricked or altered. Many online poker scandals would have not been
possible had this type of technology been adopted sooner.
Crypto Poker Club’s online poker game looks to provide special
proprietary technology for card shuffling, offers 3 additional layers of
player security and claims to provide some of the biggest bonuses in
online poker history.
As of 16 th March, the firm has opened up registration for early members
and provides free Bitcoin & Ethereum for all players who sign up before
