Chronicle of the Latest Bitcoin Currency Changes

Bitcoin collapsed to $5678 on March 11 – the last time this cryptographic currency was so cheap was in May last year. The daily drop was 25%. Then the cost went up slightly and was about $6000.

Just a couple of weeks ago, bitcoin was worth about $10,000 per unit. The fall also affected other popular crypto values: Litecoin, Ethereum, XRP, Bitcoin Cash. On average, they fell in price by 25-30% per day. However, there are crypt-currencies whose rate is still holding: for example, Tether and USD Coin.

Simon Peters, an analyst of the eToro platform, thinks that the holders of cryptocurrencies started selling them because of the coronavirus spreading, which may have a strong negative impact on the global economy. The expert believes that due to the growing number of offers to sell bitcoin, the value of the cryptovite has subsided.

Further, Bitcoin continues to show interesting movements on the chart, falling slightly below $4 thousand. However, then it partly recouped the fall, “surfacing” to $5.3-5.4 thousand. 

Exchange rate volatility is reflected in the capitalization of cryptovoltaic currencies, which instantly lost over $63bn – following the bitcoin usually change rates and all other virtual money.

Experts consider such volatility of crypto values to be a normal phenomenon and are optimistic about the long-term outlook.

At the moment, crypto values are not going to playback the decline that happened last week, but on the contrary, they are still demonstrating further decline. Bitcoin briefly gained ground at slightly above $5k per unit, but then once again overcame the psychological mark and stayed below it. Currently, according to Coindesk, the rate of Bitcoin is $4.84 thousand per unit and bitcoin to PayPal conversion is still possible.

The decrease looks sharp, as on the eve the rate of Bitcoin went up, almost reaching the level of $6 thousand. Experts associated such behavior of the crypt currency with the decision of American financial regulators to reduce the base rate to almost zero, predicting another “rally” of the rate of virtual money. The Fed’s decision was explained by its fight against risks in Asian markets because of the coronavirus.

The decrease in the rate of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, in turn, puts into question planned upgrades, which were going to be actively engaged owners of large mining farms.

In anticipation of growth

However, the interviewed analysts do not look forward to a continuous decline in prices for crypto. The value of cryptocurrencies may start to gradually recover in a few months, as prices of oil.

According to investors’ estimations, by the May quotes of the cryptocurrency should be at a higher level than now. The rates may recover by 7-15%.

In the future, quotations may show relatively stable dynamics in the absence of new shocks on stock exchanges. Moreover, the launch of new electronic coins – Libra (Libra) and Gram (Gram) may support the cryptomarket.

Crypt currency prices are also allowed to rise over the next few months, as investors may start actively buying digital coins again as coronavirus risks diminish.


Wayne Rooney spearheads latest 32Red responsible gambling campaign

Kindred Group-owned UK operator 32Red has launched a new responsible gambling video spearheaded by former England footballer Wayne Rooney.

Boxer Carl Frampton and jockey Paddy Brennan join Rooney in the minute-long video, which is the latest in 32Red’s ‘Know your Limits’ campaign, which Rooney has featured in before.

The video sees the England record goalscorer look directly into the camera, asking the audience if they gamble responsibly, and also encourage gamblers to set limits on their play.

The trio advise the audience to take a break if their gambling isn’t fun anymore, to stay in control of their gambling and not chase losses.

On the launch, 32Red UK General Manager Neil Banbury said: “For many people, football and sport is their main passion point. That gives us an opportunity to connect with that audience and promote responsible gambling messaging in a unique and effective way.

“We are clear that responsible, licensed gambling companies like ours have a role to play in tackling problem gambling.

“At a time when concerns have been raised by some in light of the coronavirus pandemic, this campaign is a timely intervention in line with the wider commitments by the Betting and Gaming Council to ensure messaging is responsible.”

32Red is the main shirt sponsor of Rooney’s current club, Derby County, with his January move causing controversy when it was announced last summer he would wear the number 32, as part of the club’s partnership with the operator.

William Hill Teams Up CBS Sports in Latest US Media/Betting Firm Tie-up

After several weeks of speculations, William Hill’s US division finally confirmed this Monday its media partnership with CBS Sports.

Under the terms of the strategic agreement between the legacy British bookmaker and the major broadcaster, William Hill is set to become the Official Sports Book and Wagering Data provider across all CBS Sports platforms.

The newly formed partnership aims to “reimagine fan engagement through a unique integration of sports betting, media, products, and technology.”

What Does the Deal Include?

The official start of CBS Sports’ collaboration with William Hill will take place this March when initial integrations will be carried out. A full rollout is planned to happen ahead of the fantasy football season.

The deal includes all of CBS Sports’ platforms, including its digital operation. The broadcaster will benefit from its partner’s odds, experts, and over 140 sports books around the US to boost its current digital offering and deliver deeper information and programming that is produced from William Hill-branded sports betting facilities around the country.

The partnership also enables CBS Sports to use William Hill data, odds, and markets across television programming.

As for the bookmaker, it will be able to advertise its offering across all CBS Sports digital platforms, including CBS Sports Fantasy, one of the world’s largest fantasy sports platforms, and thus bolster customer acquisition.

CBS Sports Digital’s offerings also include:

  • SportsLine – a subscription platform for game picks and predictions
  • CBSSports.com
  • CBS Sports HQ – 24/7 streaming network
  • CBS Sports apps
  • 247Sports

It should be noted that CBS Sports Digital is the second-largest sports media property in the US with more than 80 million users every month across its websites and apps as well as tens of millions of social media followers.

CBS Sports was the latest media company to secure a toehold in the growing US sports betting market. Last year, FOX Sports clinched a partnership with The Stars Group and Yahoo Sports teamed up with the sports betting joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings.

A Momentous Partnership

Commenting on teaming up with William Hill, CBS Sports Digital General Manager Jeffrey Gertula said that they are “thrilled to launch this momentous partnership and that it will enable them to “deepen our investment and further extend our leadership in delivering multiplatform sports wagering content, while providing William Hill with unprecedented reach for their market-leading betting platform as they continue to grow their industry-leading US business.”

William Hill US CEO Joe Asher said that they are excited to partner CBS Sports as this partnership provides them with access to assets that include mass-reach digital content products, one of the largest fantasy sports databases and platforms in the world, and leading sports television programming, which will allow us to expand the William Hill brand across America quickly and efficiently.”

William Hill has been operating sports betting facilities across Nevada for years. The company has grown its estate in the Silver State to more than a hundred sports books and owns more facilities than any other locally licensed sports betting operator.

The annulment of a long-standing federal ban on sports betting in May 2018 and William Hill’s partnership with casino operator Eldorado Resorts enabled the British bookmaker to expand its presence across more states where the practice has become legal over the past two years.

The legalization of sports betting in the US is believed to be the key to William Hill’s improvement as regulatory pressure in its domestic market and growing competition have for years eaten into the company’s profits.
