HBO’s Game of Thrones hysteria has taken a whole new meaning, with many on social media guessing how the popular series would end. Even as uncertainty looms over Westeros, fans can now predict who sits on the Iron Throne at the end of the season.

FreeBitco.in, a Bitcoin [BTC] faucet announced the incorporation of betting onto its platform for its registered users to bet Bitcoins on sporting events like English Premier League and UEFA Champions League, as well as GoT.

Over the years, Bitcoin [BTC] has plunged into a diverse set of spheres and Game of Thrones is the latest pop culture phenomenon to be hit by the virtual currency wave. With a user base of over 18 million, this is one of the many innovative ways that the virtual currency has been deployed in the mainstream media.



The total prize pool for Game of Thrones was around 1.532005 BTC, at press time. The betting pool also has a time multiplier, implying a reducing reward share as time passes.

At press time, 45% of all bets had been placed under the name of Jon Snow/Jon Stark/Jon Targaryen/Aegon Targaryen, sixth of his name. The ‘Bast*rd of Wintefell’ was followed by an unknown character, with 20% of the total betting share. Around 5% of the users placed their money on the Imp, Tyrion Lannister, while the Three-eyed Raven, Bran Stark and Mother of Dragons/Breaker of Chains/The Unburnt/Rightful ruler of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Daenerys Targaryen followed with 9% of the betting share.
