Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system that only exists electronically. It is the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator tying it in regulatory processes.

Through a peer to peer network, holders of bitcoin can transfer their money to users in a super safe encrypted network called the blockchain. This security is ensured by a number of blockchain “miners” who monitor the blockchain and continually verify it. #supersafe

While Bitcoin may be first, there are a number of other cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin.

If you would like to learn more about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general, MintDice also keeps a fantastic blog updated with the best Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency News.

There are many ways to purchase Bitcoins and they all start with a bitcoin wallet. To buy Bitcoin you must first create an account on a cryptocurrency exchange. It’s super easy and should take less than a few minutes.

Once your account is created and your wallet is set up, you can connect your bank account or a credit card to transfer your assets to buy Bitcoin.

If you are just looking to get started right away, below are a few links where you can get started buying Bitcoin and find the exchange that’s right for you:

Kucoin

Huobi

FTX

Bibox

Finding the Bitcoin wallet that’s right for you really depends on your needs and your situation. Some wallets are more user friendly, some are mobile apps or desktop clients and some are even hardware wallets for more advanced users like the Trezor. At the end of the day it’s going to be what makes the most sense for how you’ll use your Bitcoin.

MintDice is a social online Bitcoin casino that uses cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin.

Not interested in gambling or skill gaming? MintDice also allows users to take part in a cryptocurrency house investment for even more opportunities to win by being invested in part of the casino. And who doesn’t like more opportunities to win?

Hint: no one.

MintDice either offers the following cryptocurrency deposits or intends to add them (or others) in the future: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Dashcoin (DASH) and Monero (XMR).

Make sure that the transaction fee that you provide with any cryptocurrency coin is sufficient to allow your deposit to process in a timely manner. Transaction fees vary by currency. Please check your currency's current average transaction fees for a good benchmark.

Any cryptocurrency deposit requires at least:

[1] Confirmation before you can play or invest

MintDice's Bitcoin chat rules are simple: Be a good person! If you spam, cause trouble, do promotional abuse or anything considered "bad" you may get your MintDice chat privileges temporarily revoked, permanently revoked or your entire account banned depending on the type and severity of offense.

MintDice has the world's coolest chat featured called MintRain™ :) It is a randomized cryptocurrency lottery of payouts for our most loyal MintDice Bitcoin Casino players, active chatters and depositors. We have payouts structured as follows:

๐ŸŒง๏ธ MintRain™ ๐ŸŒง๏ธ ๐Ÿคท‍โ™‚๏ธ Frequency ๐Ÿคท‍โ™‚๏ธ ๐ŸŒˆ Payout Multiplier ๐ŸŒˆ
Light Drizzle 45% 1x
Slight Showers 30% 1.5x
Medium Rain 15% 2x
Heavy Pour 8% 4x
Torrential Downpour 1.9% 10x
๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒ€ Mint-Hurricane ๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒฟ 0.1% โ›ˆ๏ธ 100x โ›ˆ๏ธ

Anyone can win rain and while the prize selection is completely random and Provably Fair, the people they are given to are not completely random. Here are some ways to boost your chances at needing an umbrella:

  • Chat! Chat often and be active in the chat room. You are required to type at least one chat message to be enrolled in MintRain for any session. Recent messages have a higher impact than older messages prior to a MintRain event. However, do not spam, bot, do promotional abuse or other bad behavior as this can get you temporarily or permanently banned.
  • Deposit! The more you have deposited onto MintDice and the more recently you have deposited on MintDice, the more likely you are to be selected for MintRain. Simply depositing, even one time, will give you a huge boost over those who have not.
  • Play! The more you have played on MintDice in total and have played since the last rain storm, the more likely you are to get soaked.

MintRain & Faucet Rules/Restrictions:

MintRain is meant to be a fun program for everyone's benefit. Unfortunately, some users either knowingly or unknowingly abuse the generosity provided by MintDice. This can lead to getting your account restricted or outright banned and losing all of your promotionally acquired funds (MintDice will never take any active deposits from it's users, only illicitly gained promotional funds). In order to have a good experience on MintDice, use common sense. But here are a few guidelines to staying safe:

  • Multi-Accounting: It is perfectly legal to have multiple accounts on MintDice if they are used for normal gambling or non-abusive purposes. If however, for example, you are creating multiple accounts for faucet abuse or to chat more often to receive more MintRain™ payouts, this is clearly against the MintDice TOS.
  • Spammy / Bot-like Behavior: Low content posting, bot-posting, promotional posting or any general chit-chat that does not provide value to MintDice and it's community of chatters is not welcome. This can get your account banned. Make sure you are writing high quality comments and unique things in chat and you'll be fine.
  • Non-Performance "Farming": The major purpose of MintRain™, the Bitcoin faucet and any other promotional program on MintDice is so that you may use MintDice's features and be rewarded for doing so. If you are simply chatting on MintDice with no intention to play it's games or use it's features, this is also considered abuse. Make sure you play with the money and enjoy MintDice's Bitcoin games in addition to the chat!
  • Any Other Reason: The amount of abusive tactics that users may come up with will go beyond the scope of this FAQ or our present knowledge. If we deem anything as unfair, your account may become restricted or even banned. Play by the rules, deposit cryptocurrency, enjoy the extra rewards, have fun on MintDice and you'll never have any issue. If you start doing anything malicious, you may face consequences that we really don't want to have to give out. So be warned. Deciding what is and isn't promotional abuse is entirely at the discretion of MintDice staff.
  • If you have any question about our programs, before you engage, during engagement or even after a restriction/ban, feel free to write MintDice, support@mintdice.com with your questions. We'd also rather help you before problems have occurred since ban reversals will be extremely uncommon so get your questions in early.
