There are Bitcoin poker sites but Crypto Chips is taking it one step farther and introducing physical Bitcoin-branded poker chips.
Owner/founder Ken McGrail manufactures the chips as a hobby and got into it after he got bored with mining Bitcoin.
Crypto Chips are standard ceramic 39mm, 10-gram poker chips that have been branded with logos from various digital currencies.
McGrail decided to skip the substandard sticker technique of adhering graphics to the chips and went instead with superior ink injection printing.
They are not only available for Bitcoin but you can also order LiteCoin, Dogecoin, Darkcoin and 85 other unique designs.
Buy Bitcoin Poker Chips with Bitcoin
Since they don’t actually represent individual Bitcoin hashes, like some other coins, what are they for?
Some people use them as knick knacks to give to fellow Bitcoin fans. You can also buy a complete set and play poker with them.
Because Bitcoin is entirely digital the market for physical Bitcoin products has actually been substantial.
McGrail originally considered making metal coins but after a trip to Vegas realized light-weight poker chips were far superior for his purposes.
The chips cost $2.50 a piece with free shipping and you can pay using Bitcoin, Lightcoin, Dogecoin and a variety of other cryptocurrencies.
