Using Bitcoin Sportsbooks to Save $
One of the reasons that bitcoin has been so popular is that there are no fees for deposits and withdrawals. Plus, when bitcoin is offered, there are no external factors at play that can keep your deposit from being accepted, unlike credit card for example, where credit card issuers might block transactions that are flagged as for online gaming purposes.

With Western Union and Moneygram, not only is there the inconvenience of having to go to the local shop, there are lower transasction caps and higher fees on the wayout that most betting sites do not cover.

Why Some Bettors Have Yet To Fully Embrace Bitcoin
The at times erratic swings in value has kept some online sports bettors on the fence from embracing the currency as a legitimate alternative to the aforementioned methods.
