The online gambling sector, an early adopter of Bitcoin and its underlying technology, remains a major driver of the overall cryptocurrency economy.
Cryptocurrency was created to solve the problems brought by traditional banking. For the online gambling industry, the appeal lies in its promise to cut out the middlemen, along with their outrageous fees, and help secure transactions with the distributed ledger system for decentralized transactions with massively lower fees. But what about iGaming affiliates?
One of the hottest topics at the London Affiliate Conference and Financial Partners Expo 2018 is cryptocurrency and what opportunities will affiliates find in the digital currency space.
Andrew Edwards, MD of online marketing company Madabout Media, will give a brief overview on cryptocurrency and blockchain, as well as ICOs. The executive will discuss why cryptocurrency is profitable and how affiliates can make money advertising ICOs.
Edwards has over 10 years’ experience in the affiliate industry and also runs several well known casino sites.

Aside from finding opportunities in cryptocurrency, another topic that will be discussed at LAC 2018 is the legal challenges surrounding crypto exchanges and ICOs.
