Published

on

Chris probably needs no introduction to some of our readers, but just in case you still haven’t heard about him you must know that his BDM of the Bitcoin Gambling Guide, he’s continuously helping the the cryptocurrency community but also the online gambling industry!

GAV: Hi Chris, thank you for answering our questions we really appreciate it knowing that you’re pretty busy. For start please share your profile with us so our readers can get a better idea of who you are!

Name: Chris Evans
Age:37
Hometown: Sydney
Living in: Sydney
Favorite Food:Thai (Who doesn’t love a good green curry)
Must Read Book:TED Talks
Profession/Job title: Business Development Manager for www.bitcoingg.com

GAV: Tell us and our readers a bit about yourself! How did your career start in the industry? What determined you to engage in this activity and start working at Bitcoin Gambling Guide?

Chris: Well, I’m born and raised in Sydney, but it was on a business trip to London in early 2012 with my team in DHL, that my career in the bitcoin casino industry firmly had a seed planted.  I was amazed to see how developed the online betting bitcoin industry was – although in reality it was at that point still in its infancy – and a friend gave me my first 3 bitcoins to use. I trialed the crypotcurrency, won and lost, all the while looking for an opportunity to get my teeth into.  This is when I approached the idea of Bitcoin Gambling Guide to see if I could make it work and spread the word.  Bitcoingg is still a project that I’m learning from everyday, and I’m in a perfect position to speak with platform providers, bitcoin casino brands, managers and CEO’s.  The industry is constantly evolving and I know we have a great product and service to offer – i couldn’t be happier that I made the move to this industry.

GAV: Could you tell us a bit about the Bitcoin and after that about Bitcoingg.com?  What are the strong points of the website and what makes it stand out from the other Bitcoin websites?

Chris: Bitcoin for me is not the future, but the present, its the new way to pay and get paid without the need for unnecessary exchange rate, and credit card fees, plus what really interests me is the technology. Bitcoin is a perfect match for gambling which is backed up by the variety of bitcoin casinos and bitcoin sportsbooks now available. The two industries seem to be growing together very well.
Bitcoingg.com is the main source of information today and here are some of the highlights:

  • We have over 600 reviews of games,platforms, brands, people, technologies and more
  • A complaint system for players to raise their concern which then goes directly through to the brand.
  • A review and ranking system which culminates in the brands being awared the BGG Certificate of Trust – Examples can be seen in footers of mbitcasino.com and bitstarz.com
  • An advertising agreement with an external agency that has all the connection sin all of the right places
  • Many returning readers that also signup to our mailing list
  • External writers from around the globe with more languages currently being added
  • Social media presence across all platforms
  • My team has lots of knowledge and experience, we are open minded and welcome cooperation’s 

Bitcoingg.com is not another review site but a one stop shop for bitcoin gambling.

GAV: How did you start and what bumps did you have to overcome?

Chris: I started with a very small site plan, basic design and no traffic, actually from scratch.  It was my intention to always focus on the player providing good information, updated reviews and a ranking/complaints system.  This small seed has grown into a site that is trusted by players and brands alike, with now thousands of pages of information.

GAV: We have surfed your website and found some really good quality content. Are you writing it by yourself or you have a team writing for you? How many casinos do you have on your website?

Chris: We have over 400 bitcoin casinos, 100 bitcoin poker rooms, around 50 bitcoin sportsbetting sites plus many more besides – on average we add 8 – 10 a week.  More than that we review slot games, software providers, and technologies which are related to the bitcoin industry, this happens by publishing news daily.  I write myself, but of course I also have more writers on staff along with a whole host of external journalists wanting to share their experiences with bitcoin and bitcoin gambling.

GAV: How hard is it for you to keep the content fresh and relevant on your website, when a lot of fluff and nonsense appear on the Internet on a daily basis?chris evans

Chris: Myself and my writers are players and bitcoin fans.  We read, we check, we investigate, we learn and after that we write.  We are also lucky to receive lots of information from partners, customers, and industry professionals.

GAV: We are pretty sure that you receive many messages from Affiliate Managers on a daily basis showcasing their best products. What are your thoughts on how Affiliate Manager-Affiliate relationships should be built?

Chris: I do not deal with affiliate managers as my focus is purely on the content and what value can I add for the players, I left all of that side of the business to an external marketing company to take care of.

GAV: How do you see the future of the online casinos and the Bitcoins? For instance, will it become a truly global phenomenon?

Chris: This only requires a short answer – these two sectors are a perfect match which is proven daily by the amount of new bitcoin casino brands constantly coming into the industry.

GAV: Can you name one change that you want to see in the Bitcoin ecosystem?

Chris:Yes, I want it to be easier to use and more accessible. For people already using bitcoin, it’s easy for us to buy, sell, and trade, but unfortunately for 8 out of 10 people in the western world they still do not know how to use it. We need to offer better education on the subject.

GAV: What would be your advise to the new affiliates who are looking to venture into Bitcoin?

Chris: New affiliates need to find a niche as the market is already full for the main sports and games. For example there is missing information in golf and F1, so if an affiliate knows these subjects then they should concentrate there as it would be a great niche. It’s the same with specific markets like Latin America which is still developing and Australia which has great potential.

GAV: How do you see the Central and Eastern European affiliate market, do you think that this region is somehow overlooked by brands that are not applying for licenses, etc. ?

Chris: I do not see this as an area that is overlooked personally, like my answer above, it’s all about finding your niche.

GAV: Since SIGMA is almost here, we would like to ask your opinion on these event, are you guys attending these conferences or are you going to be in Malta? How about the London Affiliate Conference?

Chris: I like going to conferences but unfortunately time is never on my side. Luckily this is where my external journalists come to the fore, but i am hoping to make it to LAC in London next year.
GAV: have you got a favorite celebrity and if you’d have to a pick a destination in Eastern Europe, where would you travel?

Chris: Celebrity wise in the bitcoin space, then I would say Roger Ver due to the way he handles the bitcoin industry. Eastern Europe – probably Romania.
GAV: Where you wouldn’t want to travel?

Chris: I’m ready to visit anyplace with good wine 🙂

GAV: What is your opinion about the GamblingAffiliateVoice.com?

Chris: I love the site and I believe in the added value of talking to the marketers is great for the community.

GAV: Thank you very much Chris it was a pleasure talking to you, we wish Bitcoin Gambling Guide all the best!

1xBet Team: Today, the number of affiliate programs is growing, including among bookmakers, and you need to be able to stand out. How to do it? There may be different approaches here: someone offers high commission rates, someone has an original approach to communication, and someone invents new models of cooperation.

We constantly evaluate our work in the area of ​​partnership programs. Our positive results are reflected in victories and nominations at prestigious awards. For example, this year, we were nominated for the Affiliate Program of the year at the Global Gaming Awards. This is a good sign that we are continuing to move in the right direction.

We have major agreements with ESL and WePlay, an excellent range of betting options, plus attractive promotions dedicated to top tournaments.
