Crypto in gambling and gaming part – Paying with cryptocurrency in online casinos

Passionate casino and poker player with interest in new games and innovative technologies. Passion for the German language.

Crypto casinos are becoming increasingly popular because they offer players a number of benefits. These include secure and transparent payment with cryptocurrencies and anonymity. For numerous German casino players, crypto casinos therefore represent a passable alternative to online gambling platforms regulated in Germany with fiat money.

Crypto casinos as an alternative for German gamblers

The State Treaty on Gaming (GlüStV) came into force in July 2021. The aim of the legal requirements is to monitor online gambling and protect users of the platforms from fraud and pathological gambling behavior. However, the GlüStV regulations have a reputation for being too restrictive.

GlüStV measures include:

  • Monthly deposit limit of 1,000 euros.
  • Maximum stake of 1 euro per game round
  • Five-second pause on slot machines per spin
  • Restricted bonus offers
  • No parallel play
  • Mandatory identity verification
  • Limited range of games

For many players, government monitoring and the accompanying restrictions go too far. The restrictions are perceived less as protection and more as paternalism.

More and more gambling fans are therefore looking around for alternatives. Besides using platforms licensed in another country, crypto casinos also offer a welcome option.

They offer financial transactions with cryptocurrencies that are not regulated and controlled by regulators, in addition to the anonymous play preferred by numerous players.

Regulated online casinos use common payment methods such as e-wallets, instant banking or even credit cards. However, these are also subject to government regulation.

In crypto casinos, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ripple and Ethereum are accepted. However, except for the payment methods, a crypto casino hardly differs from other online gambling websites.

How do crypto casinos work?

People who have never had anything to do with cryptocurrency are likely to wonder at this point how one comes into possession of Bitcoin & Co. For this, a trading platform for cryptocurrency is first needed to exchange the fiat money.

Among the best known are etoro, Libertex, Binance and Coinbase. There, the user creates an account. He then links this account to the bank account to purchase digital currency.

The second step is to set up a bitcoin wallet. This refers to a kind of digital wallet where the coins are stored. The customer then sends the cryptocurrency purchased on the trading platform to the bitcoin wallet.

In the crypto casino, the player selects cryptocurrency as a payment method and enters the desired amount. He then sends the coins to the web address of the online casino. The transaction proceeds in real time, so the amount is immediately available for playing.

Advantages of financial transactions with cryptocurrency in online casino.
Transacting with cryptocurrency comes with several advantages:

Little or no fees: Transacting with cryptocurrency does not incur any fees, unlike most other payment methods. Therefore, online casinos and bookmakers charge little or no processing fees.

Anonymity: Among the biggest advantages that crypto casinos offer is anonymity. Bitcoin transactions are not government controlled, unlike credit card transfers.

Online gambling and cryptocurrency: a look into the future.

Digital currency has already been around for a few years. Nevertheless, Bitcoin & Co still do not seem to have caught on for everyday use. Crypto is still likely to be seen by the majority of people as an option for investment rather than a means to pay for services or goods. Regulation of digital currency is also still in its infancy.

Frequently asked questions

A joint that is restricted in its natural range of motion is described as „blocked.“ This functional restriction can overload the surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons. Other joints that normally „work together“ in a finely tuned network with the blocked joint to produce motion (e.g., rotation of the head) must compensate for the blockage and also overload. In addition, the nervous system may also become incorrectly polarized at this point. A vicious cycle of tension, restricted movement and malfunctions in the body starts rolling.

For a certain time, the body can compensate for blockages. However, for some people this leads quickly, for others after a longer period of time, almost always to pain, bad posture and tension.

What is it that cracks during a treatment?

Joints are the areas of our body where two bones meet. In order for us to move without squeaking and creaking, the joint surfaces are surrounded by a lubricating fluid. It acts for our joints much like the lubricating oil does for squeaky door hinges.

There are many small gas bubbles in the joint fluid. If the bones are now pulled apart – for example, if you pull on a finger – a vacuum forms between the joints. All the bubbles migrate into the resulting vacuum, where they meet and form a large bubble. The further the joint is pulled open, the more space there is in this space and the larger the bubble can become. At some point, it has become so large that it bursts with a loud bang: KNACK!
And you can even hear that from the outside sometimes….

Do the joints become loose after a chiropractor’s treatment?

No, on the contrary. Only blocked joints are treated, so that the joint surfaces fit together again in the best possible way. This ensures that the ligaments, tendons and muscles do not shorten on one side and overstretch on the other.
If the chiropractor determines that a joint is overly mobile and worn out due to possible injuries (e.g. torn ligaments), it is not adjusted. It needs stabilizing techniques. Therefore, you should go to a chiropractor who knows his craft. The art is to determine which joints need adjusting and which need stabilizing.

Do frequent treatments/regular check-ups cause wear and tear?

No. As long as your chiropractor works specifically and correctly, only joints that are too tight and blocked will ever be moved. These are not in danger of wearing out, even with frequent treatment, as they are mobilized from too tight to a normal range of motion. If therapists have no or insufficient training in the field of welwyn chiropractic (therefore, please always ask in other practices what training the therapist has enjoyed), it can happen that joints are treated unspecifically. In this case, even joints that are already moving well can be inadvertently mobilized, which can cause them to wear out if treated frequently.

Is chiropractic treatment the same as „setting“?

No. A dislocated joint in the spine is a neurosurgical emergency, often resulting in the most severe paralysis. Chiropractors use their hands to release blockages in the spine, pelvis and extremities through gentle impulse treatment to ensure proper biomechanical function. The technical term used for this is „adjusting“ (from the English „to adjust“). Performed by a qualified hand, this is an almost painless, low-risk and very effective treatment method.

Does a treatment have side effects?

The bigger, more complex and longer a problem is/exists, the higher the probability that some side effects may occur after a treatment. By treating the joints, muscles and fascia, we influence your body statics. Due to the changed mechanics in the body, you may experience sore muscles, headaches, temporarily more tension or pain. These reactions can last 1-3 days and usually decrease significantly after each subsequent treatment.
