Bitcoin poker is becoming bigger these days, and this development is good news both for Bitcoin and online poker. Bitcoin needs the higher profile, while online poker rooms need the boost in revenue. The main reason for this partnership is that Bitcoin makes it easy to transfer funds internationally.
This mostly stems from the fact that Bitcoin does not have any restrictive waiting times. It also does not have the chance of a transaction being rejected like with usual transfers. Also, Bitcoin does not have high fees. These make Bitcoin poker rooms have all the fun with none of the financial hurdles to jump.
