    Default New Las Vegas resort casino will be "crypto friendly"

    Resorts World Las Vegas, the first ground-up resort development on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade that opens 24 June, will allow cryptocurrency, but not on the casino floor.

    Last week, the $4.3 billion resort announced a deal with Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange company that will allow guests to utilize the product at the $4.3 billion Strip resort "across all areas of the integrated resort experience." But Nevada does not have regulations governing the use of cryptocurrency on casino floors.

    Gemini is operated by the Winklevoss twins, famous for co-founding HarvardConnection, which was later renamed ConnectU. In 2004, the Winklevoss brothers sued Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, claiming he stole their ConnectU idea to create Facebook.

    From the press release:

    Together, the companies are pursuing creation and implementation of crypto-friendly services at best-in-class institutional rates across all areas of the integrated resort experience. Details about these services will be finalized and announced in the coming weeks.

    "As the first ground-up resort development on the Strip in more than a decade, Resorts World Las Vegas is committed to integrating innovative technology conveniences across the resort to enhance the overall guest journey," said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. "By partnering with Gemini, a leader in cryptocurrency exchange, we are taking another step toward providing progressive guest experience solutions for today's Las Vegas traveler."

    "We are incredibly excited to work with Resorts World Las Vegas, the first casino on the Las Vegas Strip to partner with a crypto platform and explore integrating crypto into their guest experience. Whether it's the ability for their customers to use cryptocurrency at Resorts World Las Vegas or convert dollars into crypto, being one of the first to support crypto is a great way to meet the needs of the next generation of customers and provide a 21st century experience," said Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini.
