WPN reports buying hundreds of millions in bitcoin to pay their players, as demand for payments in crypto increases. A few months ago, Americas Cardroom entered the Guiness Book of Records by paying over $ 1 million in BTC to Brazilian player Rafael Moraes, winner of The Venom event, for the highest prize payed in crypto currency in an online poker competition. WPN also reports that they are paying over $ 100 million in crypto currency each month, which is basically 95% of their withdrawals. As most their players are American, it is to be considered that this is likely being done as a strategy to avoid issues with the US government, as online poker is only legal in 11 of the 50 states and this also makes the money harder to track by the local governments and authorities.
