Lagos, October 25, 2018 — On Tuesday, the Chief Executive Officer of Quidax, Buchi Okoro stated that cryptocurrencies like Ripple (XRP) can be used to increase liquidity for remittance businesses while reducing the cost per transaction to customers.

In a panel discussion at the 7th Remittance and Payment Expo that held on the 23rd and 24th of October at Oriental Hotel in Lagos, Buchi said that Quidax was not in competition with remittance or payments platforms, but instead in collaboration with them, as using cryptocurrencies like Ripple will increase liquidity and effectiveness to remittance businesses.

He added that partnering with platforms like Flutterwave, Paga and other remittance and payment systems could reduce the cost per transaction to consumers, cut transaction time and even lower operating costs. Explaining he said that remittance businesses usually needed to have security deposits in the countries they operate in, however, using a cryptocurrency like XRP this could potentially be eliminated. According to him in a matter of microseconds, the currency of the originating country would be converted to XRP, sold on the exchange for the currency of the destination country with the end user receiving the money in their bank account in seconds.

On the panel with Buchi were the Growth Lead, Remittance at Flutterwave, Etimbuk Bassey and Co-founder and Director of Business Development at Paga, Jay Alabraba.

QuidaxIn his speech before the panel session, Buchi shared how overwhelming the traction in Nigeria has been, with a lot of activity coming from the Ripple pairs which are mostly used for remittance because of the speed of settlement at around 25 seconds. Also, Quidax is looking to integrate XRapid a payment and international transfer product from Ripple which would efficiently power remittances and cross-border payments using XRP as a bridge.

At the expo, Buchi stated that there were a couple of reasons why people were suspicious of cryptocurrencies namely the fear of being ostracised and the possibility of cryptocurrencies crashing. According to him while some of these fears could not be erased completely, however, people are too focused on speculation.

“It would be a lot more mind-blowing to consider the positives and opportunities cryptocurrencies offer us today; instant settlements and greatly reduced costs of financial transactions.”

The Quidax CEO concluded saying that like every new technology, there were bound to be some resistance just like when the bicycle and the car were first introduced however the road ahead is still long and the innovations would continue well into the future.

The 7th Remittance and Payment Expo was themed ‘Unlocking Opportunities in Money Transfer and Payment systems in Africa’ and it was organised with the intention of deepening remittance and payment ecosystems in Africa. In attendance were top executives from financial services companies, regulators, mobile network operators, and fintech startups.

All the listed sites are licensed and offer provably fair casino games. Crypto and Bitcoin owners like to have a Provably Fair gaming platform. Now they can enjoy their Fair games at licensed operators as well. We aim to list only the Provably Fair casino and Bitcoin betting sites with gaming licenses. 

All the listed Bitcoin Casino and Betting sites are: 

  1. Licensed in Curacao 
  2. Offers Bonuses in BTC 
  3. Has BTC as an account currency 
  4. Offers games from top providers like NetEnt, Evolution, and Ezugi or offers provably fair games
  5. Available to play from all over the World

BitPunterBitpunter.io gives you the best and most secure options to bet and gamble with your beloved Bitcoins. Betting and gambling with Bitcoin gives you great advantages such as anonymity and security. Our aim is to provide the best reviews of Bitcoin Casino and Bitcoin Betting sites and make your gambling experience as smooth as possible. We only list licensed Bitcoin Casino Sites with great bonuses and customer service. You can read our Casino Reviews and check out the games and bonuses they offer.

This way you will be able to have a comprehensive look on the Bitcoin gambling sector and decide where to use your Bitcoins for casino games and sports betting.

Bitpunter does Bitcoin Casino Site ratings according to 4 different criteria:

  1. 🔒  Trust & Fairness: The most important thing about a Bitcoin Casino Site is to know if you can trust the house. The first criteria here is the existence of Provably Fair games where you can be sure about the fairness of the game outcomes. We also rank more classical Bitcoin Casino Sites highly if they offer casino games from trusted providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, and Ezugi. The second criterion about Trust is knowing that you will be able to withdraw your winnings. This is mostly about the casino site’s license as the licensing authorities is supposed to prevent the player funds and make sure they get paid out. We mostly prefer Curacao-based casinos.
  2. 🎰  Odds & Games: When it comes to the availability of a wide range of games, we take into account the Bitcoin Casinos working with top casino game providers. They are able to provide 100s of live and slots games with their deals. If we are ranking a Provably Fair casino site we know that the games are most probably made in-house. We allow those casinos to have simpler designs and still get good ratings. A Provably Fair casino site is respected if they have more than 5 games but there are still very good casinos like Wolf.bet with only 3 games or Primedice with only 1 game of Dice. When it comes to sports betting sites we make sure that they offer decent odds and bet types.
  3. 💰  Bonuses & Promotions: Our criteria are different for classical Bitcoin Casino Sites and Provably Fair Casino Sites. When it comes to classical Bitcoin Casino Sites, we expect them to give away hefty sign-up bonuses even tough it is supposed to be wagered 40 times. 40 times wagering is considered a fair amount of wagering as these sites are casinos not charities. When it comes to Provably Fair Casino Sites we do not expect them to give away juicy bonuses as they work on very low house margins like 1%. We focus on promotions, hourly-daily-weekly-monthly tournaments and give aways. Loyalty bonuses and cashback offers become more important at Provably Fair casinos.
  4.   Customer Support: Offering customer support was almost unthinkable when the first Bitcoin Dice and Bitcoin Casino sites started. They usually came with on-site chat sections where users had to communicate with each other and hope for solutions. Thanks to the increasing demands of crypto gamblers and higher competition in the market, we are now able to get proper Customer Support with proper tools like Live Chat and Email. We take getting good customer support and showing respect to the users very seriously. We also take a look at the BitcoinTalk forum where we check how the operators respond to fellow gamblers and how likely they are to solve their problems.

Mission of Bitpunter.io

Our aim is to provide up-to-date information on all licensed Bitcoin Betting and Bitcoin Casino sites. I know that those Bitcoins are very valuable for every HODLer and we want to be sure about the safety of our funds when we bet or gamble with them. That is why I have gathered all the licensed Bitcoin Gambling sites and reviewed them for you. You can find both the Pros and Cons of every reviewed site and make your own calculated decisions.
