Earlier this month, the Decent.Bet team said it would be launching a new esports platform that will allow users to bet on themselves in popular video games including Fortnite. The market appears to have reacted strongly to the news; Decent.Bet’s DBET token is currently trading at $0.0509 for a market cap of around $9.5m, up from $5.7m at the start of the month.

Elsewhere the leading gambling-dedicated cryptocurrency by market cap, FunFair (FUN), has also enjoyed a good month. It has added around 25 percent to its value so far in March, off the back of a growing user base for its CasinoFair product
