Matt Kirk Joins CoinPoker as Pre-ICO Sells out 80% in Four Days

New blockchain based poker site has got off to a flying start after selling some 80% of their pre-ICO sale in just four days. They have also announced that high stakes poker player Matt Kirk has joined the team.

We reported on CoinPoker’s upcoming pre-ICO  immediately prior to the start of the sale last Thursday which saw some 100m of the total 500m CHP (CoinPoker’s very own Ethereum based cryptocurrency) tokens go up for sale on It would seem that word had spread with 80m tokens now already sold. According to CoinPoker there have been some big investments made, with the record contribution being no less than 1000 ETH (around $360k at the time of writing).

As previously reported, it has always been CoinPoker’s intention to invest 15% of all tokens collected into the prizepools of their opening tournaments, and if sales keep going the way they are then CoinPoker are likely to be the first online poker site to run a tournament with SEVEN-FIGURES in added value!

As new sign-up Matt Kirk said;

‘This is going to be huge. I’m stoked to join CoinPoker and I’ve already put my money behind it. I can’t wait for the tokens to reach the high stakes tables, where I’ll be ready to take it

While fellow CoinPoker signing, Isabelle Mercier added;

We’re very excited that CoinPoker is such a huge success.We have been working very hard on this project for a long time, and it’s very thrilling to see that the players believe in us. We also received huge support from the crypto-community as well, so we are more motivated than ever before and we expect that the rest of our ICO will go just as smoothly.’


Above: CoinPoker's pre-ICO sale surpassed all expectations this weekend, selling out 80% of the 100m token offering in less than four days.

Another big name throwing their weight behind is entrepreneur, MEP, and legendary high stakes poker player Antanas “Tony G” Guoga. Guoga has been at the forefront of promoting the crypto space for some time and has backed CoinPoker from the beginning. Speaking about the huge success of the pre-ICO so far he said;

I knew this would go well! Poker is more than ready for something revolutionary. I really believe cryptocurrency and blockchain is the answer we need.  If you’re just thinking about investing, don’t wait! The CHPs will be gone in no time at all.’

In fact, Tony G exclusively spoke to HSDB last week, where he talked at more length about why he sees blockchain technology as the future of online poker.

CoinPoker are hoping to solve current online poker problems via their blockchain based technology, specifically the problems of lack of transparency, security, trustworthiness, and slow currency transactions.

In fact, CoinPoker’s  Head of Security, Michael Josem, has invited interested players to pose him any questions regarding the project’s security, saying;

 ‘I am happy that the community is taking security very seriously and I value the trust that the players have put in us by purchasing our tokens. We are going to do our best in making sure that our fair play security system becomes the industry standard.’

Anyone looking to get involved in the pre-ICO sale will need to be fast if they are to take advantage of the 30% bonus being given to all buyers during this initial phase, where the price of a CHP stands at just €0.05. If you miss out on during the pre-ICO, however, there will still be opportunities to invest in CHP as the remainder of the ICO is planned for the first quarter of 2018, and will be available via any e-wallet.

Anyone wishing to check out the product, the MVP (Mimimum Viable Product) was released as a play-money app prior to the pre-ICO and is available to download at
