“We are delighted to do so in partnership with one of world football’s true giants in Arsenal, enabling us to build our brand and engage this audience in a meaningful way.

“Designed specifically for iGaming, CashBet Coin will improve the online experience for real money, casino, social, skill-based, eSports and sports betting players through increased trust and transparency, faster payouts, reduced fees and dedicated player protection.”

The ICO presale will begin on January 24, 2018 at 5:00PM GMT and end on February 20 at 5:00PM GMT, followed by the public sale beginning on March 20 at 5:00PM GMT and continuing until April 27 at 5:00PM GMT.
