NetBet is to become the first UK-licensed online gambling operator to offer Bitcoin payment options to British and Northern Irish punters.
On Monday 17th October, BitPay – the self-proclaimed world’s largest Bitcoin payment processor – announced that it had helped NetBet secure its UKGC-approved licensing.
According to a BitPay press statement, NetBet had opted to include Bitcoin options in order to better serve the UK’s growing digital currency user base.
As reported by Calvin Ayre, since Bitcoin is something of a novelty in the UK, BitPay worked closely with the online betting operator to make certain its new payment option met with all UKGC requirements.
