Ethorse – The Sweet Spot between Horse Racing and Cryptocurrency - The Bitcoin News

If you have been to a racecourse, you would love the sight of the striking horses racing. However, the joy of watching poetry in motion can be increased even further. That is if you place a bet on a particular horse and it comes out as the winner. Many of you might also be regular investors in stocks. When one of your stocks zooms up and you book a profit, it’s a joyous occasion for you. And finally, there is the whole thing about cryptocurrency that is all the rage in the last few years.
