Leading distributor continues its breakthrough work with crypto to underpin more games for clients across emerging markets

QTech Games, the leading games distributor across Asia and emerging markets, has unveiled its latest upgraded cryptocurrency tool kit which supports a unique crypto-to-game currency feature.

The leading platform is now able to arm its partners and their players with all the inherent crypto benefits of lower transaction costs and faster withdrawals across a wide variety of cryptocurrencies, including but not limited to: BTC (Bitcoin), ETH (Ethereum), XRP (Ripple), LTC (Litecoin), BCH (Bitcoin Cash), USDC and DAI. These cryptocurrencies, attended by a widening range of stablecoins, alt-coins and even virtual tokens, will attract and empower a host of new players who hold and want to play in these popular alternatives to fiat, underpinned by a responsive real-time exchange mechanism.

Accordingly, players can now both keep their wallet in cryptocurrency, and also play in traditional fiat money. As a result, most games on the QTech platform are now available for play, not only those games which support crypto.

The move tracks surging underlying demand and a buoyant atmosphere in the crypto community, whose optimistic outlook has been bolstered by further recent gains. Indeed, QTech clients are now finding that those crypto customers who have accrued capital gains are more eager to take chances across the gaming verticals.

QTech Games’ backend that provides operators with the ability to manage player registrations, payments, promotions, marketing, and other key functions, is supported by one of the strongest technical teams in the industry, making the back-office a scalable tool which grows with the operator.

Ulf Norder, CCO at QTech Games, said: This is a timely crypto-to-game currency innovation, including the possibility to create virtual currencies as well. It’s essentially two features in one: players can deposit into their wallets as normal, convert their balance into any currency (coin, token, or play games which aren’t bespoke crypto games) and then play as usual, safeguarded by our unique real-time exchange mechanism.

“The gambling industry was one of the original pioneers in the use of crypto, and opportunities still abound, both for our partners and their players. By this, I naturally refer to the recognized advantages around speed and security, but also the savings our clients can then pass on to the consumer for a better experience all round. Players can benefit from fairer margins compared to fiat-money operators, who have to pay substantial costs for conventional payment-processing and chargebacks. On sportsbook, that might mean better margins – or, on casino, better promotions. Everyone benefits.

“As the leading distributor across developing territories, we want to help educate our partners, improve adoption rates, and unpack the day-to-day needs of the customer, so we can service them. They want speed, flatter learning curves, and tighter security. As a result, we’re now giving it to them. It’s as straightforward as that.

“Our commitment to rolling out high-quality content remains undimmed, but crypto is a progressive ally in driving revenue for our partners. So, it’s a real thrill to partner with more and more ambitious digital casinos, who are looking to disrupt the space through cryptocurrency innovation, underscored by QTech’s quality product line. This is just the beginning.

“Of course, none of this means going all-in and converting everything into blockchain. But an edge and an understanding can be secured by simply integrating crypto as a new payments pathway. Ultimately, every scarce asset will be “blockchain-ified” – be it a stock, a fungible dollar or a non-fungible token (NFT). It all goes on chain and can take traditional banks and charges out of the equation. Blockchains are radically egalitarian because every user becomes a root user.”
