The global online poker industry has been very open to the cryptocurrency industry. Most of the top online poker operators have made provision to accept popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple and Litecoin.
Player feedback responsible for MY PP Live $$$ launch
partypoker has decided to go a step further and launch its own cryptocurrency called MY PP Live $$$. This new virtual currency launch came about due to the feedback and complaints made by partypoker players.
Players were unhappy with the fact that they would qualify for a tournament via an online partypoker event, but would then end up missing the tournament due to personal reasons. When they returned to partypoker, they would find that their chip stack had disappeared and they basically had nothing.
John Duthie, partypoker LIVE president said: “We’ve spent a lot of this year listening to players and one of the most common criticisms about the online to LIVE satellite route has always been getting locked into specific events when circumstances may change.”
partypoker decided to address these concerns by launching its own MY PP Live $$$ currency. Now, players will be able to accumulate MY PP Live $$$ by playing daily and weekly events at partypoker.
MY PP Live $$$ can be used for multiple purposes
The MY PP Live $$$ currency does not have an expiry date and players will have multiple options to use their virtual currency. Players will be able to use the MY PP Live $$$ as buy-ins for popular partypoker LIVE events and partypoker sponsored events.
This means instead of paying real money to attend live tournaments, players now have the option of using MY PP Live $$$ to attend tournaments such as the Grand Prix’s, Country Championships and partypoker LIVE MILLIONS. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Brazil which is a partypoker sponsored event will also be accepting MY PP Live $$$.
Players will also have the option of using their MY PP Live $$$ currency to make travel and accommodation arrangements to all partypoker events.
- partypoker will launch new MY PP Live $$$ leaderboard in 2018 and split $1 million with the top ranked players.
MY PP Live $$$ leaderboard will split $1 million prize
partypoker has confirmed that it will launch a special MY PP Live $$$ leaderboard in 2018. Players will make the leaderboard when they earn MY PP Live $$$. The top players on the leaderboard will be the ones who have accumulated the most MY PP Live $$$.
