May The Fork Be With You: Bitcoin Casino Cloudbet Unveils Bitcoin Cash Giveaway

Leading crypto sportsbook and casino Cloudbet becomes first to honour bitcoin fork

Montenegro - April 16, 2018 —

Leading bitcoin sportsbook and casino Cloudbet is offering its users the chance to share a considerable cryptocurrency windfall. Players who held bitcoin in their Cloudbet accounts on August 1st, 2017, at the time of the bitcoin fork, will receive the equivalent in bitcoin cash.

Cloudbet has set a precedent within crypto gaming by releasing funds tied to what is now the world’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency. The company is the first bitcoin sportsbook and casino in the world (and the Galaxy) to honour the fork, underlining the credibility the platform has built since its 2013 launch in what has become a rapidly growing segment of the gaming industry.

Should they choose to, Cloudbet players will be able to use their windfall to take advantage of some of the best crypto odds and highest limits online, as Cloudbet have simultaneously launched betting with bitcoin cash. The move signals the platforms intention to offer crypto bettors more choice of coins with which to bet.

Mirio Mella, Cloudbet’s Head of Acquisition had these words to say about the platform;

“The creation of derivative bitcoin products in what are termed ‘forks’ has both practical and political implications. Cloudbet is focused on the practical; players want fast, cheap and reliable transactions, and BCH offers a great alternative to BTC. We have no position on the politics but instead are having fun with the Star Wars fork theme and will leave it to others to decide who is the Empire and who are the Freedom Fighting Rebels.”

Cloudbet will use the timestamp of the last common BTC block (block 478558; 1 August 2017, 13:16:14 UTC) to determine customers’ BCH balances; full details on the BCH fork.

Premature baby penguin recovers after parents broke her egg

Jul 22, 2018

LONDON — London Zoo says a premature baby penguin has been nursed back to health after her parents accidentally stepped on her egg and broke it. The zoo says keepers were astonished to find that the female Humboldt penguin chick, nicknamed Rainbow, was still alive inside the broken egg. They rushed the chick to the zoo's clinic, where vets transferred her to an incubation chamber. The chick spent weeks cuddling with a soft toy penguin and was fed what the zoo called "penguin milkshake" — blended fish, vitamins and minerals. Penguin keeper Suzi Hyde said Thursday that the birds typically...

Defense contractor Raytheon reaffirms its commitment to UK

Jul 22, 2018

LONDON — U.S.-based defense contractor Raytheon says it remains committed to its operations in Britain, even as other manufacturers warn that they may curtail investment because of delays in negotiations over the country's departure from the European Union. Raytheon, whose roots in Britain go back more than 100 years, sees opportunities to expand its U.K. business, regardless of Brexit, said John Harris, chief executive of the company's international unit. Several other major firms, including Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover, have warned that the lack of certainty over Britain's future relationship with the EU could force them to leave, taking tens...

Brazil's Lula is in jail but never far from the headlines

Jul 22, 2018

SAO PAULO — He's tweeting about the politics of the day. He's offered commentary on the World Cup. And he's leading polls for October's presidential election. Yes, he's still in jail. Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva — universally known as Lula — has not faded from the headlines during his three months behind bars. Instead, analysts say his public profile is part of a risky strategy to attract attention and voters to his Workers' Party — even if the ex-president himself is not ultimately on the ballot. "The more time the (Workers' Party) spends doing this, the...

LONDON — Aviation is soaring: Passenger traffic is up, fuel prices are under control and rising demand from Asia is driving aircraft orders. So what could possibly go wrong?

Aircraft makers at this week's Farnborough International Airshow, a biannual extravaganza where billions of dollars of planes and parts are bought, say thousands of jobs are at risk in this most international of industries as U.S. President Donald Trump threatens to raise tariffs on a variety of goods and other countries prepare to retaliate. While Trump has said trade wars are "good and easy to...
