Poker with Bitcoin

By Alexander Baron     Nov 3, 2012 in Entertainment
The Black Friday domain seizures hit on-line poker badly; it wasn't only domains that were seized. One group of players think they have found a way around this.
When the FBI and Department of Justice seized the domains of leading poker sites in April of last year, they also froze (read stole) their assets. Some people believe they have found a way around that, and around any such future government seizures, from poker players or anybody else; this solution is Bitcoin.

Bitcoin has its critics but so does poker, so does gambling per se. You can learn about some of the risks of using virtual currencies here. If though you know the risks you are taking and want to play completely anonymously on-line, there is one poker site where you can: Seals with Clubs.
Currently it is very small, typically there are fewer than a hundred players on-line at any time, but this is a largely untapped market with the potential to grow. The people behind it are shy, including about answering questions, but they have an affiliate scheme, so there is not only potential there but potential for you. If you are the sort of person or company they are looking for, and don't mind being paid entirely in virtual currency.
If this site is not for you, Full Tilt is back on-line Tuesday under new management, with lots of freerolls and other promotions.
