Ape In Poker's founders announced Monday the grand opening of their Poker Room Cashier, an online platform bridging traditional casino play with cryptocurrency. The move marks the first step for the company as they migrate into Web3 technology to provide players "with interactive and immersive experiences."
While Ape In Poker admits it is not the first to integrate cryptocurrency into its platform, the company claims that they are the first to implement a cashout protocol that is near immediate, allowing players to receive their funds "easily, quickly and efficiently."
In addition, the cashier system will be able to accommodate multiple blockchain cryptocurrencies, first starting out with Solana, with Ethereum and Bitcoin following shortly after.

"A full casino experience will be available; walking into a casino, choosing your table based on what you see, sitting down at a table and placing your bet, talking to other players and even your trip to the cashier to cash out will all be part of the Mixed Reality experience that Ape In Poker is creating," the company explained.
David Galan, Web3 Innovator and Strategist, explained that this is a project that has been many years in the making. "What is being built here has never been done before. We are building the framework and blueprint for what will become the household norm," he stated.
"It’s incredibly complex work but every step we take closer to that end vision is worth celebrating. This cashier system with Ape In Poker is definitely worth celebrating," he concluded.
The company announced in late August that, in celebration of the new Poker Room Cashier, exclusive Genesis Players Card NFT would be released. The NFTs will provide holders with perks and utility, both online and in person. Holders will receive a reduced amount of rake for every hand won on the site for life.
