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.

Government shutdown taking toll on wildfire preparations

Jan 17, 2019

PORTLAND, Ore. — Just two months after a wildfire wiped out Paradise, California, officials are gearing up for this year's fire season and fear the government shutdown could make it even more difficult than one of the worst in history. The winter months are critical for wildfire managers who use the break from the flames to prepare for the next onslaught, but much of that effort has ground to a halt on U.S. land because employees are furloughed. Firefighting training courses are being canceled from Tennessee to Oregon, piles of dead trees are untended in federal forests and controlled burns...

New US strategy forsees sensors in space to track missiles

Jan 17, 2019

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is calling for expanding defense technologies in space to better protect the U.S. A new strategy being unveiled Thursday at the Pentagon says a layer of sensors in space must quickly detect, track and ultimately defeat incoming missiles. Details about the administration's Missile Defense Review are expected to be released during President Donald Trump's visit Thursday to the Pentagon with top members of his administration. It's the first such review since 2010. Recognizing the potential concerns surrounding any perceived weaponization of space, the strategy pushes for studies. No testing is mandated, and no final decisions...

Falling tree kills man as storm lashes California

Jan 17, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — A falling tree killed a man in Oakland on Wednesday as a powerful storm lashed Northern California with high winds and rain, authorities said. The man was struck on an embankment near Interstate 580 and died at the scene. The man, who was homeless, may have been "just trying to stay dry," California Highway Patrol Officer Herman Baza said.

The latest storm in a series that has pounded California all week closed a major freeway, triggered deadly wrecks on slick roads, had people in wildfire-ravished communities bracing for dangerous mudslides and mountain...

Less beef, more beans. Experts say world needs a new diet

Jan 17, 2019

NEW YORK — A hamburger a week, but no more — that's about as much red meat people should eat to do what's best for their health and the planet, according to a report seeking to overhaul the world's diet. Eggs should be limited to fewer than about four a week, the report says. Dairy foods should be about a serving a day, or less. The report from a panel of nutrition, agriculture and environmental experts recommends a plant-based diet, based on previously published studies that have linked red meat to increased risk of health problems. It also comes amid...
