Playing chess online is a great way to sharpen your mind and to compete against players of a similar ability level. For cryptocurrency owners, Chess.com is the ideal platform for this purpose, for it lets you pay for membership with bitcoin cash.
Chess.com Now Accepts Bitcoin Cash
Chess.com is an online chess platform and social forum dedicated to the game, with well over 20 million users. It features coaching services, tournaments, learning materials and much more content for the thinking game’s many aficionados. If you are a bitcoin cash user looking for a new chess playing community, the website lets users pay for yearly premium memberships through Bitpay which means it accepts both BCH and BTC.
The website originally started accepting cryptocurrency payments for premium membership over four years ago, but the option was disabled after Coinbase deprecated payment links and volume dropped due to the fall in the price of BTC. Then, earlier this year, an avid Bitcoin Cash supporter convinced Chess.com into accepting BCH back again.
If you are looking for more types of games, Bitcoin.com’s entertainment section offers a multitude of options such as Slots, Blackjack, Video Poker, Dice, Roulette, Keno and Craps. At Cash Games players don’t need to register and can enjoy the games anonymously. At the same time, the platform also offers two-factor authentication, password protected accounts and a dedicated customer support team.
