NuxGame, the experienced betting and software provider, has announced the integration of Metamask, Aptos and Phantom crypto wallets into its platform, creating a more secure, efficient and streamlined process for operators and players alike.
Promoting ease of use and offering global accessibility, the new integrations will allow for ease in sign-ins and registrations as well as swift deposit and withdrawal directly from the wallets, reducing friction in the registration process while attracting the growing group of crypto-enthusiasts and increasing acquisition rates for operators.
The public blockchain’s transparency and immutability also minimises fraud, with traceable transactions ensuring that both players and operators can verify and validate transactions.
The Metamask, Aptos and Phantom integrations solve many issues other crypto networks and more traditional payment processes pose, such as slow transaction speeds, high fees, security issues and the lack of complete decentralisation.
The integrations bolster NuxGame’s range of services and are the latest in a string of innovative solutions available to forward-thinking operator clients.
Denis Kosinsky, Chief Operating Officer at NuxGame, said: “Evolving our offering is key to future-proofing our clients’ operations by ensuring they stay ahead of the tech curve, providing their customers with the most cost-efficient, secure and streamlined service available.
“As crypto technology continues to grow within the iGaming sector, it is vital operators have the infrastructure to facilitate changing player preferences. This latest development of our services ensures our clients have the most advanced crypto and blockchain technology available to them.”

9M 2023 Crypto in iGaming Landscape: Moderate Growth Amidst Fiat Rise
SOFTSWISS’ latest analysis indicates that the cryptocurrency segment is experiencing slower growth compared to the broader iGaming industry. The pioneer in offering cutting-edge crypto iGaming software presents insights into the latest crypto gaming trends.
The analysis is founded on the data collected across 530+ brands powered by the company. It takes into account the in-game currency conversion capabilities, enabling SOFTSWISS clients to seamlessly involve players with cryptocurrency holdings in games originally tailored for fiat only.
IGAMING MARKET GROWTH
During the first three quarters of 2023, the iGaming market consistently grew. In absolute terms, the total wagered amount showed a 36.6% increase compared to the same period of the previous year, while the number of bets saw an even more impressive growth of almost 50%.
STATE OF CRYPTO
In the comparative analysis of crypto bets spanning the first nine months of 2023 and the same period of the previous year, a noteworthy 18.7% monetary growth is observed. At the same time, the number of crypto bets has surged by 66.4% since 2022. Simultaneously, the share of crypto in the Total Bets Sum demonstrated a slight decrease by 4.3 p.p. to finally settle at 28.5%.
Diving deeper into the analysis, which has been ongoing since the beginning of 2022, it becomes evident that the sums of crypto bets experienced incremental growth from quarter to quarter during this period, but their share in the Total Bets Sum decreased slightly, primarily due to the more impressive quarter-to-quarter increase in the sums of fiat bets.
Andrey Starovoitov, Co-CEO at SOFTSWISS, comments: “An 18% increase in crypto bet sums may appear very modest when juxtaposed against a more substantial 45% expansion in fiat bets during the first three quarters of 2023. Taking into account the state of crypto in other spheres, such as fundraising, where the third quarter showed its worst results since the end of 2020, the position of cryptocurrencies in iGaming could be evaluated as comparatively stable at the moment.”
FLUCTUATING CRYPTO BET
The analysis of the average bet presents an engrossing picture. While the average fiat bet remains stable, hovering around 0.82 euro during the first three quarters of 2023 as well as in the same period of 2022, the average crypto bet lost almost 30 p.p. on average, displaying a quarter-to-quarter variability. It initially increased from 1.56 euro at the end of 2022 to 1.88 euro in Q2 2023 but subsequently declined to 1.59 euro in Q3 2023. Such fluctuations can be attributed to the inherent volatility in cryptocurrency rates and market expectations.
SOLID TOP OF CRYPTOCURRENCIES
The Top 5 most used digital coins in iGaming remained unchanged since the beginning of 2022.
During the first three quarters of 2023, the cryptocurrency distribution structure is as follows:
- Bitcoin – 74.9%
- Ethereum – 8.9%
- Litecoin – 6.0%
- Tether – 4.6%
- Dogecoin – 3.0%
In the world of digital currencies, Bitcoin has witnessed the most substantial growth, marked by a 3.9 p.p. increase in its share compared to the first three quarters of the previous year. Conversely, Ethereum experienced a decline, losing 6.3 p.p. in its market share during the same period.
Andrey Starovoitov, Co-CEO at SOFTSWISS, summarises: “Due to their technological nature and relatively recent emergence, cryptocurrencies are developing within a rapidly changing landscape, pivoting on diverse economic and societal factors. At the moment, we are observing their moderate popularity among players in the growing fiat segment, and the results of the final quarter of 2023 hold increasing fascination. Being the ‘number one’ crypto solutions provider, SOFTSWISS remains committed to imparting its expertise on the relevant trends in iGaming.”

THNDR Releases Infrastructure for Limitless Wagering, Disrupting $95B Online Gambling Market
THNDR announced its newest product, Clinch, an API that enables instantaneous, borderless, low-fee, peer-to-peer wagering using the Bitcoin Lightning Network. Created in response to the pain points of traditional competitive gaming platforms – including high buy-ins, cashout thresholds, slow payouts, and regional restrictions – Clinch makes global, limitless wagering a reality.
Targeting the $95B online gambling market, the Clinch API allows partners, such as online casinos, sports books, and competitive gaming platforms, to integrate global, high-frequency wagering without the restrictions, high fees, and slow processing of traditional gaming providers. Clinch is a revolutionary monetization tool for game developers and other businesses navigating ever-changing app store and developer platform policies.
Current competitive gaming typically enforces high buy-ins, often requiring users to deposit $20 or more to begin gameplay. These thresholds are untenable for the majority of global users, especially in emerging markets and developing regions, unable or unwilling to deposit such high amounts of funds. Clinch’s wagering rails make it possible for users to enter wagers for as little as one satoshi (1/100,000,000th of a bitcoin). Clinch not only opens the door for users globally, it also allows businesses using the API to reach and monetize this global audience.
As of the announcement, users can test out Clinch in THNDR’s portfolio of games, beginning with the cult-classic, Club Bitcoin: Solitaire, which reached #21 in the App Store and is the highest ranked bitcoin game of all time. Users can place a wager (in bitcoin) on a game of Solitaire against friends, and funds will be paid out instantaneously, peer-to-peer.
Select partners are currently testing out early API access and users should expect limitless Clinch wagering in an endless supply of games. Expanding the Clinch suite of offerings outside of skills-based wagering, THNDR is working with sports-betting and gambling companies to make high-frequency wagering globally accessible and more efficient while elevating the integrity and overall quality of the gameplay.
How it works: Clinch allows users to place wagers directly with peers, for exactly the desired amount – no upfront deposit required. Wagers can be placed for as little as one satoshi, or 1/100,000,000 of a bitcoin, and there is no upper limit on the wager size (although early Clinch versions will be capped as the tech is tested in production).
While similar wagering and betting innovations have been tested on other blockchain protocols, these are fraught with security vulnerabilities, negligent token issuance, centralization, and have garnered regulatory scrutiny. In light of the recent $41.3M hack of the online crypto casino and sports betting platform, Stake.com, Clinch offers a welcome alternative by giving users complete control of their funds. THNDR is the first company to launch a consumer wagering product and API on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network.
Users can now test out early access, wagering bitcoin in near real-time, PvP Solitaire matches. Initial rollout is invite-only but users can sign up for rolling waitlist access. Developers interested in integrating the Clinch API can visit api.clinch.gg for API documentation and access.
THNDR is a gaming infrastructure company focused on building products that enable competitive, connected play, frictionless rewards, and borderless wagering. THNDR’s newest product, Clinch, leverages the Bitcoin Lightning Network to enable instantaneous, depositless, peer-to-peer wagering.
