The Crypto Series of Poker (May 27 - June 3), a 10,000,000 CHP added tournament series that is the first of its kind, is set to start this Sunday at 16:00 EEST. New CoinPoker players can join the first event for free, with the an added sum of 250,000 CHP up for grabs.
The series includes 17 varied tournament events where a range of 200,000 to 1,000,000 CHP added prize pools can be won. From May 27th to June 2nd, two tournaments will be held daily and build up to a final high stakes main event with 2,500,000 CHP added.
The "CSOP Main Event" will be held on June 3 at 21:00 EEST with two other exciting tournaments. Along with the massive prize pool, players can compete against professional poker player Tony G ( Antanas Guoga ) for a signature bounty of 20,000 CHP. The poker star will be crushing multiple events throughout this one of a kind series, which is sure to attract more than your average recreational player according to Head of Poker Operations, Paulius Mikaliunas:
"The Crypto Series of Poker is the first event of its kind, and as a cryptocurrency powered poker room we are exciting to match and exceed prize pools offered by mainstream poker events. The benefits of blockchain powered poker like instant transactions and higher security combined with the massive amount of money to be won has already attracted a lot of attention. We're excited to see plenty of new players joining our community as the start date for the CSOP approaches."
For players with a smaller bankroll the Mini Main Event held hours before is another opportunity to spot him and cash in on prize pool of 1,000,000 CHP. Satellites will also be running daily, making it possible for skilled players to qualify for CSOP events at a fraction of the standard buy-in.
Aside from the much anticipated CSOP event, the "CSOP Leaderboard" will run in parallel to the series. Points will be collected throughout the series, and the first 50 places will get a shot at winning one of three WSOP Main Event packages.
As CoinPoker invests in scaling its promotional activities, the value of the CHP token climbs the charts and attracts interest of the mainstream crypto community. However, mainstream poker fans may not be as familiar with exchanging and acquiring cryptocurrencies. CoinPoker is powered by its own unique token: CHP or Chips, so in order to make it easier for prospective players to fund their accounts, CoinPoker introduced an app update that will allow users to transfer and exchange Ethereum, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies on the market, for CHP tokens inside the app.
This big news comes just days after the release of CoinPoker's mobile app for Android. The CoinPoker app already has thousands of downloads after being released only a few days ago, proving that the demand to play crypto poker on the go is on the rise with the advent of the CSOP .
With 10,000,000 CHP tokens and 3 WSOP packages available for lucky CSOP Leaderboard winners there's plenty of excitement for both crypto fans and poker enthusiasts.
