Decentralised blockchain casino platform provider FunFair Technologies has gone live with cryptocurrency exchange Changelly, as it bolsters its range payment options.

Continuing upon a previously set ambition “to bring blockchain gaming to the masses,” emphasised when introducing a new crypto wallet and updated user interface earlier this year, five new cryptocurrency payment options have been integrated as per the terms of the deal.

FunFair has integrated Changelly’s exchange API into its recently launched FunFair wallet, allowing players to swap various cryptocurrencies for its gambling token, Fun.

As a result registered players will now be able to bring the likes of Bitcoin, Tron and Litecoin to one of its partner casinos, CasinoFair and CryptoCasino, and trade for Fun without leaving the platform or needing third-party exchange accounts.

“Funfair is a project I have been following for the past couple years and the team behind it is one of the best from both the gaming and crypto industries,” noted Eric Benz, CEO at Changelly

“I look forward to the integration of the Changelly API as this will benefit both customers and the partner companies who will utilise the FunFair wallet.”

The Isle of Man licensed entity states that the agreement will further enhance a users on-site journey, via the reduction of friction between sign-up and gameplay, while also opening up its FunFair powered casinos to new consumers.

In addition to the five cryptocurrency funding options integrated at launch more are set to follow in the future, as well as “strong liquidity and instant transactions”. 

Fred Kessler, CPO at FunFair Technologies Europe, commented: “Integrating Changelly’s user-friendly exchange will open up our platform to a vast new audience of crypto-holders and allow for a far superior on-boarding journey.

“To date, players must own Fun to play, but this new partnership of choice will allow for holders of the likes of Bitcoin to experience the best in blockchain gaming without the added hurdle of heading off-site to use a crypto exchange.”
