What is BitBook AG
While the online gambling and sportsbook market has grown in recent years, concerns about issues such as fraud and lack of transparency have remained. The advent of Blockchain technology has fundamentally changed this situation.
Due to the immutability of records on the blockchain, any user can verify and retrace past transactions. Many online casino operators have since developed and launched Blockchain-based online gambling platforms to provide players with these benefits.
However, a series of challenges are still in tact. Regardless of how active users are and how much money they spend on the platform, they are not rewarded for their loyalty. In turn, online casino operators continuously struggle to retain their users. Moreover, most online platforms offer either gambling or sportsbook functions, not offering players a single platform to both place bets on sports events and play casino games.
The Bitbook platform will solve exactly these challenges. Bitbook is a sportsbook and online casino platform that compensates users for their losses with up to 10% and offers them an unparalleled diversity of games and betting options.
The Bitbook platform has been live since May 2018 and has established itself as a Bitcoin-only online casino amongst a worldwide audience of passionate players. While the current development was financed solely by the Bitbook team, it is time to lift the Bitbook platform to the next level and build the sportsbook and online gambling experience of the future.
To this end, Bitbook will hold an initial coin offering (ICO) and issue BXK, its own token that will be used as the in-game currency on the Bitbook platform. While players can bet in any major cryptocurrency of their choice, the use of BXK tokens will be incentivized by various measures.
These measures include a compensation of up to 10% of losses on bets made in BXK tokens and various other exclusive and ongoing bonus programs run on the platform. A regular token buy-back from exchanges and the subsequent burning of these tokens will cause a decrease in the total supply of BXK tokens and ensure a consistent increase in their value.
The funds raised will be used for the further development of Peer-to-Peer betting in 2019 and the establishment of the platform as the leading blockchain-based sportsbook and online casino solution on the market. 60% of the generated funds will be invested into extensive marketing campaigns to attract additional players to the Bitbook platform.
REASONS FOR GROWTH OF THE ONLINE GAMBLING INDUSTRY
The reasons for the rapid growth rate these statistics indicate are manifold. Firstly, it is the global mass adoption of mobile devices both in industrialized and developing nations that facilitates access to online gambling apps and solutions for hundreds of millions of people.

A great number of service providers has evolved to serve the growing markets and offers users the ability to place bets on a wide variety of sports in both national or international leagues.
Another contributing factor is the growth of income in developing nations. Higher incomes generally mean more disposable income to spend on gambling and betting.
The growth of the online gambling industry is further supported by the advantages online casino operators have over traditional casino operators. Through beneficial legislature and the possible physical separation of players and dealers, online operators are moving the physical location of their casinos to low-cost countries like Malta, Gibraltar and Latvia which have established themselves as attractive locations in the gambling industry, especially for the operation of live casinos. Meanwhile, online casino operators can attract and reach a worldwide target market, easily and effortlessly growing and scaling their business.

Anybody of legal age and registered can play from the comfort of their own home and at any time.
The Bitbook token is an essential part of the sportsbook and casino platform. It is used as the exclusive currency on the Bitbook platform – both for sports bets and casino games.
