during 2017 i mostly used btc exclusive sportsbooks and casinos because the price of bitcoin in dollar terms kept rising. i might deposit $100 at nitrogen and over the space of a few weeks it would magically be worth $200 if i withdrew it. during the 2018 bear market where the price went from about $19,000 back to $3,500 the opposite was true. if i deposited btc at a casino or sportsbook, it was worth about half in dollar terms within a month or two. as a result i almost exclusively gambled at sites like nitrogen and cloudbet in 2017 and i gambled more at sites like bovada and 5dimes in 2018 because they immediately converted my btc to dollars so i avoided the constant price drops. have other people done the same?
