CoinPoker To Sponsor 2018 Asian Poker Tour - Qualify for the APT Main Event for FREE

Blockchain-based poker room have announced that they are the official sponsor of this year’s Asian Poker Tour (APT) where they will be sponsoring the entire tour’s events as well as the APT Players Party. CoinPoker will also be running online qualifiers for seats at many of the tour’s events.

As well as CoinPoker’s players getting the opportunity to play in APT tournies (including the upcoming Main Event – more of this later), the site’s own cryptocurrency (CHP) can now be used to purchase APT event seats throughout the tour, which is, as CoinPoker said in a recent press release, “a progressive step towards the adoption of blockchain solutions in the poker industry”.

Of the move APT General Manager Lloyd Fontillas said;

 “APT event players will now be able to buy in and cash out using CHP, the cryptocurrency developed by and used on CoinPoker” before adding, “With the sponsorship, CoinPoker will offer players around the world online satellite packages to APT Main and Super High Roller events. As well as other tournaments, giving players the opportunity to win APT tournament credits that can be used at any APT event.”
