The Coingaming Group, which counts as part of its stable Bitcasino.io and Sportsbet.io, has entered into a new agreement with the Tron Foundation, the non-profit behind the cryptocurrency TRX.
Under the terms of the agreement, it is to be accepted that the Tron community will be able to use the currency for the first time in the crypto gaming space with its two brands.
The deal is praised as a “perfect match for the fun, fast and fair gaming experience” across the “customer-centric gaming brands,” boasting transactions that “happen almost instantly and without any fees.”
Games from a number of providers, including OneTouch, Evolution Gaming, GameArt and Kalamba, now deliver native Tron games, meaning users of Bitcasino could wager directly in TRX without in-game currency conversions.
Tim Heath, CEO of the Coingaming Group noted: “We always work hard to put our customers at the centre of the universe, and by adding TRX gaming we are once again at the cutting edge of what is possible in this space.
“We are particularly excited to offer a low minimum deposit threshold and zero transaction fees, ensuring Bitcasino.io and Sportsbet.io gaming can be enjoyed by even more players for the first time.
“The Tron community is one of the most engaged, forward-thinking and dynamic in the cryptocurrency world. It is also passionate about gaming, so this is a great opportunity to introduce TRX holders to the fun, fast and fair world of the Coingaming Group brands. We are certain they will enjoy the ride.”
Sportsbet.io has already awarded 1 million TRX to celebrate the launch through its ‘ Last Man Standing ‘ competition, which has seen the ultimate winner predict seven correct results successfully.
Justin Sun, the founder of Tron, explained: “One of the Tron Foundation’s core missions is to support growth by providing engaging, real-world use cases for TRX.
“We’ve been aware of the market-leading gaming brands operated by the Coingaming Group for some time now; Bitcasino.io and Sportsbet.io are fantastic examples of what is possible when crypto-led products put the customer above everything else.
“It is genuinely thrilling to see another world-class brand open its doors to the TRX community.”
