Brief Guide to Bitcoin Gambling

Bitcoin gambling is one of the biggest trends at the moment and there's a good reason for it. People want to gamble but are too worried about revealing their true identity or sharing personal information with the industry. Even though most of the leading game providers respect their customers privacy there are companies that sell your information to the advertisers. When this happens you suddenly start to receive offers from number of casinos through letters and emails which can be very annoying. In the worst case scenario your personal information finds its way to the wrong hands and you become a victim of an identity theft.

 

This is where bitcoin becomes a life saver to gamblers all over the world. Most of the bitcoin gambling sites won't ask any of your personal information due to nature of bitcoin. All the transactions can be made fully anonymously and you don't need to reveal any of your personal details to be able to enjoy gambling. It is not only a safer way to gamble but also much easier to anyone who understands the basics of bitcoin transactions.

 

Almost all the games that you born to love are already available for bitcoin gamblers. This includes hugely popular games from NetENT such as Starburst and Gonzo's Quest. You also get access to some of the coolest games in the industry that only support virtual currencies so why not to try bitcoin and take a leap to a better gambling experience?

 

So how to take the first steps in bitcoin gambling? First you need to understand what bitcoin actually is. To keep things simple bitcoin is a virtual currency that is best thought as an "online money" that you can use just like any other currency. You only need a specific wallet for your "new cash" and store your coins there for further use. Every wallet has its own unique address that determine where the money is coming and where it is going. With your own wallet you can send and receive money through bitcoin transactions which again are fully anonymous. Only visible information is your own wallet address which doesn't reveal any of your personal information to the third parties.

 

In a nutshell here is how to setup bitcoin wallet, load money into it and deposit it into the casino:

 

1. Register a bitcoin wallet at Coinbase by filling your name and email address.

 

Coinbase tutorial 1

 

2. Verify your details by clicking the link that Coinbase just sent you to your email address.

 

Coinbase tutorial 2

 

3. Next you need to setup your Coinbase profile as an individual. Complete every step and follow the given details. You only need to verify your phone number, provide ID and payment details to exchange your FIAT-money (USD, EUR, etc.) for bitcoin through the Coinbase exchange service.

 

Don't worry about giving your details here. You are using one of the most trusted companies in the business at the moment!

 

Coinbase tutorial 3

 

4. Now go to any trusted bitcoin casino such as BitcoinPenguin and register your anonymous account. Find the deposit address where to send the bitcoins that you just acquired.

 

Coinbase tutorial 4

 

5. Copy the deposit address and go back to your Coinbase account and click "Send/Request". Fill the details and send the bitcoins from your Coinbase wallet to the casino account. Done! You have now deposited your first bitcoins and you're ready to gamble!

 

Coinbase tutorial 5

 

It is really that simple and with newbie friendly wallets such as Coinbase this is all you need to know to manage your funds between wallet and the casino. Whenever you want to withdraw your earnings just submit your own wallet address and preferred amount to the casino. Once the funds are received exchange your bitcoins back to FIAT-money through the Coinbase exchange service. You are then free to request a payment to your bank account.

 

Happy gambling everyone!

Bitcoin Value Passes $870

Bitcoin is going strong and it has already passed the milestone of the highest price in over three years. At the moment the price of bitcoin is $875 (Bitstamp) and there seems to be much less resistance now that we're past the $800. We think that $900 will be passed before christmas and hope that $1000 won't be too far away!

 

So why the value goes up so fast? There are no one big reason but when you look at the news from the past weeks you can notice some very positive headlines that surely have some effect to the price development. Bloomberg for example stated that bitcoin was one of the best performing currenices and even more succesful than gold. Reuters also made a positive statement about the current value. Headlines also report that countries in ecomonic crisis are starting to take advantage over bitcoin's benefits.

 

As seen before the value of the bitcoin is closely related to the news coverage rather than global markets and positive headlines always gives a little boost to the current value. Even though we have seen lot of setbacks during the 2016 we think that the last quater was one of the best in the bitcoin history.

Mar 20 2016

DailyDOGE Faucet Relaunched!

Today we have finally relaunched our DailyDOGE Faucet at http://www.dailycoins.net/dailydoge.

 

Possible rewards at the moment are 1 (40%), 3 (30%), 4 (25%) OR 6 (5%) DOGE and you can claim your coins every hour! If we get lot of traffic we might increase the rewards in near future.

 

Due to faucet bots we are forced to use reCAPTCHA + Antibot links to make sure that you are a real user. When we first launched our Bitcoin and Dogecoin faucets we couldn't keep the balance filled because bots were leeching all the money within couple days. Hopefully things will be different this time.

 

We are sorry about the ads included but please bear in mind that ads are needed to create enough revenue to keep the faucet balance filled. All the money that we make will be used to fill the faucet balance.

 

Have fun!

Please notice that if you already have referrals on your account and they activate their Profit Pages then you'll get the $45 commission when you activate yours before the April 1. Every referral that you have on your Bitbillions will be your referrals on the Profit Pages too. If you have an inactive referral who has a referral that does activate, you will get the $45 commission that they would have gotten. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?

 

Lot of members have inactive referrals and while that may have been a problem we have good news to you! You can earn more with your matrix even with inactive users. Comissions are calculated using the roll up system: If 3 of your 1st level referrals were inactive then the 9 members under them would become your first level! You could suddenly earn from 9 members and make lot more profit. The more inactive members you have the more comissions you could earn through the matrix. You still need to have fresh members joining to take full advantage of the matrix though.

 

We recommend that you stop worrying about the bad start you may have and any inactive members and start looking for new ones through emails and forum promotion for example. With Profit Pages you could turn your efforts into profit faster that you might think. There are lot of marketing material available and if you have any worries you can always ask our help how to promote Bitbillions Profit Pages properly.

Someone could win just by activating their Profit Pages without even sponsoring anybody!

 

Join the new Bitbillions today and activate your Profit Pages before it's too late!

bitcoin money laundering
Feb 22 2016

Digital currency and money laundering

We all know that digital currencies such as Bitcoin are used for money laundering and funding of criminal activities. It is said that Bitcoin is "impossible to trace" and there's a good reason for it. Although it is quite easy to trace a transaction in blockchain it is pretty much impossible to identify the owner of a spesific wallet address as Bitcoin doesn't transmit any personal information when sending and receiving money. As Bitcoin becomes more and more popular we need tools to prevent bad business from growing and also to protect individual users from being hacked.

 

The good news is that companies that work closely with Bitcoin recognizes the problem and have taken action in the right direction: New startups such as Chainalytics are specializing fraud protection and countering money laundering in Bitcoin network. Europol's European Cybercrime Center (EC3) has agreed to team up with Chainalytics to create a working solution for this matter.

 

The business model of Chainalytics has already raised $1.6m in funding that should allow powerful solutions to be developed in the near future.

Bitcoin price chart
Dec 17 2015

Bitcoin continues to grow slowly

Bitcoin continues to grow slowly just as we predicted six months ago. The current price is doubled since May and today Bitcoin is worth somewhere between 430-460 USD. We strongly believe that the price continues to develop although it probably slows down when we get closer to 500 USD. There are so much going on around Bitcoin and blockchain technology among big corporations that big price drops shouldn't happen anymore.

 

The good news is that Bitcoin doesn't seem to care what happens in the foreign exchange market. Even though USD is strengthened against all other currencies it doesn't seem to affect Bitcoin price at all. For example EUR:USD fell recently more than 100 points but Bitcoin price was staying almost the same. That's why we believe that Bitcoin price is more affected about news coverage that are related to cryptocurrency than fiat and economic development.

Bitcoin adoption explodes in Venezuela

Experts predict, that Venezuela's Bitcoin adoption will boom any time now. It's been argued, that the worse an economy the more intrest there will be for the growing use of digital currency. Venezuela's leading Bitcoin advocacy organization have estimated, that the number of Bitcoin users in the country has doubled since 2014. The possibility to buy Bitcoins online is one way to avoid increasing devaluation of the national currency. "Digital currency removes pressure on the exchange market and can serve also to store value, not just to transfer value", Bitcoin advocators argue.

Bitcoins came to Venezuela three years ago, when the supply of foreign currency started plummeting while demand continued to grow. Bitcoin is seen safer than the black market dollars, and they make also changing national currency bolìvares to dollars quicker.

3D Bitcoin mining chip from KnCMiner

KnCMiner has recently announced a new kind of technology that stacks chip components in three dimensions instead of regular flat design. The company is also the first one in the world to move to 16nm processor technology which provides several advantages over previous designs.

 

In addition to increased processor speed the main advantage that 16 nanometer 3D FinFET node construction is able to offer is energy efficiency. When the chip uses less power it will be much more profitable to mine bitcoins in the long run. It also ensures more enviromentally friendly transaction processing. KnCMiner is already using locally produced hydropower and arctic air for cooling which makes the company a forerunner in sustainable development.

 

The chip in the picture is the actual photo of the new Solar Bitcoin mining chip from KnCMiner.

Ross Ulbricht
May 31 2015

Ulbricht sentenced to life in prison

The online dark market Silk Road operator Ross Ulbricht has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole by US District Judge in New York. Ulbricht has been ordered to pay nearly $200 million in addition to the prison term; the amount related to the operation of the now-defunct Silk Road during its active period.

 

Ulbricht clamed the site to have borne out of youthful naive, but the District Judge considered Silk Road to be a carefully planned life's work and Ulbricht's opus. Ulbricht had kept a journal of his Silk Road activities during its running time. Dread Pirate Roberts - the name Ulbricht ran the marketplace under - was convicted on total of seven different charges related to conspiracy, computer hacking and narcotics distribution. Ulbricht is expected to appeal the sentence.

 

Also other well-known Silk Road venders affiliated with Silk Road were sentenced this week in Chicago and Louisiana: In a Chicago case a vender Cornelis Jan Slomp, operating under the name Super Trips, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for drug trafficking. In Louisiana, US Department of Justice charged 30-year old Beau Wattigney with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit trademark counterfeiting by selling fake coupons on Silk Road.

 

The Silk Road trial shows that electronic currency is not anonymous but perfectly traceable. Silk Road was hidden in the dark web, and to access the marketplace you needed a special cryptographic software. Bitcoin was the only currency used for its alledged anonymity. From 2011 to 2013 Silk Road was a wild success. During that two year span Silk Road managed to do more than $1 billion in sales.

They are now offering over 100 NetEnt games on their casino which is something that we personally have been waiting for a long time!

Games such as Starburst and Gonzo's Quest are the most popular games ever made and there is a good reason for it. They offer lot of fun and excellent returns for your money.

 

At the moment NetEnt games are only available in Euro currency but this doesn't mean that you couldn't play them. Just exchange bitcoins seamlessly through Bitstarz casino and there won't be any comission fees for you to pay. Happy gaming everybody!

Payza: Bitcoin transactions rising fast

Leading online payment processor Payza has announced that since they introduced bitcoin buying and selling options in the late 2014 their bitcoin transactions have been rising about 20% every month. Steady growth of bitcoin transactions sounds promising and Payza appears to be very exited about the possibilities that cryptocurrency has to offer.

 

In couple days Payza will also launch a new checkout service where consumers can use bitcoin to pay for goods in Payza partner sites. At the moment merchants will receive the payments in fiat but if there are enough interest in receiving direct bitcoin payments Payza may offer other options in the near future. Robert Elbaz, interactive marketing strategist at Payza, also shows interest in offering support to other digital currencies too when the time is right.

Mycelium Bitcoincard is coming

Leading mobile wallet provider Mycelium has been developing a secure hardware wallet that would work as a payment card at the same time. The card itself is still under heavy development but the first prototypes already exist and the distribution will hopefully start by the end of the year. Bitcoincard was first planned to ship in March 2015 but there has been some technical problems due to flexible design that the company need to solve before the product is ready for consumer use.

 

The first video preview has been available for a while already. In the video you can see the actual prototype in action but obviously there are not many functions working yet. The final product though will probably be different and the texting feature may be removed. Circuit board, display and battery are fully flexible and the device itself should be as thin as credit card. Once the final design is ready and the card is programmed to transmit payments properly the bitcoin card can bring a long-awaited solution for merchants to accept bitcoin payments more conveniently.

Bitfinex hacked, 1474 BTC stolen

Earlier today Bitfinex warned their users that their hot wallet keys have been compromised and that people should halt their deposits until new hot wallet is created. While we informed our users too about the incident through social media we didn't know yet what actually happened and if hackers were able to stole any money.

 

It seems that the loss was bigger than expected. Hackers were able to transfer 1474 BTC from Bitfinex hot wallet and while this is not much for Bitfinex it is significant amount of money and one of the largest thefts in bitcoin history. The information about stolen coins were received through blockchain.info transactions that users were able to track down. We can only hope that the stolen money will be returned to the rightful owners some day.

Does bitcoin need regulation?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency which means that government or central banks are not involved in bitcoin regulation. Now that bitcoin is becoming a widely accepted payment method there has been questions if bitcoin should be regulated to prevent illegal behavior such as funding of terroristic act. It is definitely something that we need to take under consideration.

 

The problem that exists in bitcoin regulation is that the key features that make cryptocurrency interesting rely on easy and fast transactions with a very low cost. If there are some kind of regulation involved the transaction times could take longer and there might be some additional fees to cover the regulation costs.

 

The idea behind regulation is not to delay the process though but follow the transactions. There are no need to take over or control bitcoin any more than that. In reality regulation would be still far away from the money regulation as bitcoins are created by miners and not by central banks. If bitcoin would be regulated it could actually gain more acceptance across the world as a legitimate virtual currency.

Bitcoin is continuing to grow

We thought that it would be a good time to remind our users what is going on around bitcoin. When the price of bitcoin started to fall rapidly in 2014 people thought that it would be the end of bitcoin once and for all. Since that the common belief has been that due to price fall people are losing their interest in cryptocurrency. This has never been the case. People should look further than just the price development.

 

If you look closely some of the blockchain.info charts you will notice that there has been more and more transactions all the time and not just within the popular addresses. Bitcoin is actually becoming hugely popular and is far from dying.

 

The current price of bitcoin is around $230 and while there are still lot of volatility the price is much more stable than a year ago. This is actually a good thing. Big corporations and merchants around the world are starting to trust bitcoin when the price isn't jumping hundreds of dollars anymore. This doesn't mean that the price wouldn't rise in the future though. You'll never know what is going to happen next but it is unlikely that we see such a rapid changes in the near future. Maybe we should all stop looking at the price for a while. Just enjoy the possibilities that cryptocurrency has to offer and let other people know it too.

Bitcoin websites unblocked in Russia

In January 2015 Russian court decided to declare seven leading bitcoin websites illegal and prevented access to them in some areas. The decision was probably made due to government's need to protect the devaluation of the ruble and block all the competitors that may affect the domestic currency. The blocked websites included several informational sites Bitcoin.org included.

 

The good news is that the court decision is now canceled and the websites should be unblocked in the near future. Bitcoin is not illegal in Russia and therefore there are no real reasons to block trusted websites from sharing information about cryptocurrency. The court decision is a huge step forward and great news for growing bitcoin community.

New features to Coinbase App

Coinbase mobile wallet has been updated and the new version brings lot of features that we have been waiting for. With updated app you can sign up, verify your phone number and link bank account right from the app. Previously this has been possible only through desktop browsers. Other features include support for older android devices, bitcoin purchases to european users and bonus program where new users are eligible to 100 bits welcome bonus.

 

Coinbase has been developing more mobile-friendly services for a while now and although the wallet is still not perfect there are lot of things that we like about. The new features work only in certain countries but Coinbase is expected to enhance the global coverage in the future versions.
