Key facts:

  • Customers will use Gemini's cryptocurrency wallet to make payments within the complex.

  • Tyler Winklevoss said that users would be able to exchange their fiat money for cryptocurrencies.

His plan is for guests and visitors to use the exchange and custody services for Bitcoins, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies offered by the exchange house founded by the Winklevoss twins in 2014.


Resorts World Las Vegas announced a press release stating that more details will be available next week. However, the facility's president, Scott Sibella, said the move was part of an effort to integrate "innovative technological amenities" throughout the resort.


Therefore, according to the announcement, customers will be able to use cryptocurrencies in the gigantic casino (equivalent to two football fields) that the resort will have. Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini, suggested that integration with the arcade is final.


"We are incredibly excited to be working with Resorts World Las Vegas, the first casino in the area to partner with a cryptocurrency platform and to explore integration into their guest experience. Whether your customers can use crypto at Resorts World Las Vegas or convert dollars to crypto, being one of the first to accept 'crypto' is a great way to meet the needs of the next generation of customers and provide an experience of the century. XXI." Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini.


The complex, which has the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand, will open its doors with 3,500 rooms, a theater with a capacity for 5,000 people, and, in addition, will have a shopping center with a variety of stores. The organization may impose Cryptocurrencies as a payment method in all spaces.

Cryptocurrencies have already conquered Las Vegas.

Resort World Las Vegas would not be the first company that integrates cryptocurrency services. For four years, The Legends Strip Club has been using crypto-assets for its operations such as consumption and private dances. Also, you can get VIP status with the local's crypto-asset, The Legends Room (LGD), developed in Ethereum.


At the time, Nick Blomgren, founder of Legends Room, explained that the first question clients at the club ask him when they use a credit card is: "'What does your receipt say about the statement?' So if you can use bitcoin, well, no problem".


Indeed, what happens in Las Vegas stays there, and cryptocurrencies can help this mantra be better sustained. By paying without an intermediary, the issuance of consumer bills is coming to an end. The system guarantees the anonymity of those who pay for services, and clients will enjoy an innovative experience, one of the primary searches of those who go to this American city. However, this would be a characteristic of those who do not use the services of Gemini at Resort World.


In any case, it will always be convenient to keep in mind that the United States Tax Service (IRS) has its sights set on cryptocurrencies. So much so that some officials believe that the growing adoption of cryptocurrencies in the United States has been why they cannot collect around $1 billion in taxes a year because they have "difficulties in tracking transactions."
