Doug Polk has made a big investment into the cryptocurrency industry by launching the website Coin Central. Polk, one of the world’s top high stakes poker players, will add another layer to his busy life.
The 2017 WSOP One Drop High Roller champion is also a YouTube personality and businessman.
“As of today I am excited to announce my next project. Today is the official launch of my CryptoCurrency news site CoinCentral.com,” Polk tweeted.
Polk has been following the cryptocurrency game for a while, investing in Bitcoin back when a BTC only cost $100. This decision has definitely paid off because one BTC is now worth over $5,600.
The famed poker pro has expressed his belief that cryptocurrency will only continue to increase in value. That said, he’s no doubt happy with his website launch.

“At @realcoincentral, our goal is to help anyone interested in the world of Crypto to get trustworthy and reliable information to make decisions.”
“I look forward to this new challenge, and will do my best to ensure anyone looking for accurate information will find it.”
