As crypto gambling continues to rise in popularity, we are also seeing a lot more activity in the crypto gambling space. Digital currencies and tokens such as Bitcoin have been evolving rapidly with gambling being one of the most significant areas of growth. Online gambling is currently the most lucrative space for many operators. Innovative use of technologies such as crypto and blockchain has been very vital for this growth.
Following a market study that lasted over several months, last Tuesday renowned crypto-first iGaming operator BGaming released a report detailing gambling market trends in Q3 of 2021. According to this report, crypto gambling showed the most significant growth of all existing gambling trends.
There was a massive surge in the popularity of digital currency use across several different sectors. It is now closer to mainstream adoption than ever. As such, its increasing popularity has made it a great way for many online casino operations to differential themselves. While Bitcoin still leads the pack, other digital tokens including custom ones from gambling operators have been doing very well.
“Being the world’s first iGaming provider to offer cryptocurrencies, we draw particular attention to crypto gambling. BGaming widens its network of crypto projects and we see the results. The number of explosive winnings on crypto projects has significantly risen over the past few months.”
Bogdan Gres, Brand Team Lead at BGaming.
For crypto-focused gambling companies such as BGaming, this is an indication that their efforts are paying off. It will therefore not be surprising to see even more entries into the crypto gambling space by both new companies and existing operators.
The BGaming report also included other valuable insights into the current state of the iGaming sector and what we can expect for the future. To begin with, it found that mobile gaming is still a force to reckon with. Almost 95 percent of the operator’s gamers played from their mobile devices. If that is anything to go by, the mobile gambling vertical should only get better in the future.
Another important aspect of online gaming that BGaming’s report listed was the growing young adult audience. This tech-savvy and highly dynamic market grew by more than 6 percent in 2021. Finding new and exciting entertainment options is important to this audience. BGaming has thus been able to attract many of them thanks to its innovative crypto-powered offerings. To stay at the top, the company must cater to the demands of this audience.
