Formerly known as Bovada, Ignition Casino is bringing the model that it has used in the United States to Australia, with a pillar of that model being their use of bitcoin for account funding. What makes bitcoin an ideal method of funding in Australia is exactly what has made it work in the USA, which is the elimination of any legal issues associated with using it when compared to using the currency of each of those countries.
With bitcoin, the process is much easier and much less expensive. Players simply have to purchase bitcoin at a site that allows them to convert their native currency into cryptocurrency. From there, they can send their bitcoin into an anonymous wallet, and deposit it into the online poker site of their choice. This can be done easily, and without being subjected to the laundry list of regulations that come with traditional currency and traditional banking methods.
Online poker players in Australia are fortunate relative to their American counterparts, in that bitcoin is easier to buy in Australia, with there being a number of in-person options available to secure the cryptocurrency. Those types of purchasing options are still in their relative infancy in the United States, for comparison's sake.
Australians can play Ignition poker on mobile devices, as well as on desktops. Mobile players simply have to access Ignition via its mobile app, allowing them to play whenever and wherever they please, and hit back against regulations from the Australian government.
