Gambling + Decentralized Finance = GambleFi
There are gray areas within the crypto space that don't get much attention, but should. Two such sections are the adult sector and online gambling.
In this week's report, I'm going to delve into (likely) the next massive growth sector for crypto - the GambleFi sector.
What is GambleFi?
GambleFi refers to a trend in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sectors that combines elements of online gambling and decentralized finance (DeFi).
As decentralized finance (DeFi) continues to mature, online gambling remains a multi-billion-dollar industry, and the confluence of these two sectors in the form of GambleFi presents intriguing growth prospects!
The Market Potential
The online gambling industry alone is expected to reach a staggering $800 billion in annual revenues by 2026. When you consider the rapid growth of the cryptocurrency market, which has attracted millions of new users and seen a dramatic increase in transactions, the potential for GambleFi becomes even more evident.
How successful are GambleFi tokens?
Let's take a look at an example...
Rollbit Coin (RLB) +7,894% (1Y)
The story for RollBit is interesting, to say the least. There was no ICO for Rollbit, instead, Rollbit airdropped RLB for free to existing users of its casino and trading platform, Rollbit.com.
The RLB lottery drives demand for the token, acting as entry tickets that give holders the chance to win a share of the casino’s profits. RLB tokens must be staked to enter the lottery. The prizes come from a profit-sharing pool, where 20% of all the casino’s profits accumulate daily.
The supply of RLB is capped at 5 billion coins and to access the lottery, RLB must be staked in each round, where half of the 0.20% staking fee will be burned (i.e., permanently removed from the supply). This mechanism helps to support value growth over time - and it seems to be working over the last few months.
The Next Big Trend?
As we entered 2022, Web3 and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) took center stage. Now, in 2023, these various technologies are finding applications and integrations across multiple industries, including the world of online gambling.
GambleFi remains an emerging trend that has yet to capture mainstream attention. The space is bustling with new projects eager to make their mark, positioning it as a potential growth hotspot for 2023 and 2024.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming reports as we explore this burgeoning sector in greater detail and identify specific projects worth investing in.
