It’s time to announce the winners of my scholarship. These people fulfilled all the requirements and perfectly dealt with the task:

1. Diane Williams (USA)
2. Rachel Rinong (Malaysia)
3. Arthur White (UK)

As I promised I would publish the winner’s article, so you can get acquainted with it – Bitcoin Gambling in USA.
Thank you for participating! Follow my updates, the new scholarship programs are expected here 🙂

Description: Use our applying form when the article is ready, send it in PDF format and I’ll give an answer during the week. The best articles will be published on my website and their authors informed by e-mail. Check the updated chart regularly on this page.

To figure out: Bitcoin gambling has become very popular lately. But there exist so many nuances that we do not yet thoroughly understand. For example, legality of bitcoin gambling and bitcoin casinos is still an outstanding issue. So, here we offer the research project (article) for students of IT/Finance-specific colleges/universities and for those, who are interested in this theme.

The first three places will receive a scholarship award:

  1. $750;
  2. $500;
  3. $350.


Figure out such aspects as:

  • Bitcoin regulation in the USA (situation in different states);
  • Online gambling legality in the USA (situation in different states, which types of gambling are banned);
  • If somewhere, in the USA states, online gambling for money is banned, and bitcoin is not considered a real currency, can we consider such gambling legitimate?
  • Is it possible to make transaction with fiat currency?
  • Make a conclusion about bitcoin gambling legality, combining the results of above-mentioned research aspects.
