The Coingaming Group, which counts Bitcasino.io and Sportsbet.io as part of its stable, has entered into a new agreement with the Tron Foundation, the non-profit behind the cryptocurrency TRX.
Under the terms of the agreement the Tron community is to be welcomed to use the currency for the first time with its two brands in the crypto gaming space.
Boasting transactions that “happen almost instantly and without any fees,” the deal is lauded as a “perfect match for the fun, fast and fair gaming experience” across the “customer-centric gaming brands”.
Games from a number of providers, including OneTouch, Evolution Gaming, GameArt and Kalamba, now offer native Tron play, meaning Bitcasino users can wager directly in TRX without the need for in-game currency conversions.
“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,” noted Tim Heath, CEO of the Coingaming Group.
“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 given away 1 million TRX to celebrate the launch through its ‘Last Man Standing’ competition, which saw the ultimate winner successfully predict seven correct outcomes.
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.”
