    I've been bitten by the bitcoin bug and don't think I could be bothered filling out credit card forms ever again. Can I use BTC to deposit and withdraw from Fan Duel or Draft Kings in the US?

    No. They accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.

    From which states does FanDuel and DraftKings block players?

    Daily fantasy sports betting sites are banned/blocked in Alabama, Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, New York, Washington, Texas and list keeps growing.

    Both FanDuel and DraftKings are launching their fantasy sports betting services in the United Kingdom. I guess they need to expand outside of the United States incase daily fantasy gambling gets a federal nationwide ban.

    The UK Gambling Commission now permits its licencees to use bitcoin and other cryptos. Since FanDuel and DraftKings would both have been granted licences by the UKGC to operate, they should be able to start accepting crypto-currencies from players in the United Kingdom.

    I can't see FanDuel or DraftKings becoming popular in the UK. The bookmaker culture is far too ingrained in British society. Even if daily fantasy sports betting started to become popular, William Hill and Ladbrokes would start offering it and kill their business overnight.
  9. I thought DraftKings and FanDuel lost their credit card processor in the United States last year?

    Yes they did but I think this story was overblown in the press because it was just one of a number of credit card processing companies that they use.

    It looks like both sites are going to merge soon. If they do join forces I really hope there will be less commercials during NFL season.

    I think they have merged but they already merged companies but the two different brands will remain. There was definitely fewer commercials this year.
