How to play games with crypto? Beginner’s guide
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Investing in cryptocurrencies is still a very attractive option to make money. Although we are already nearing the end of 2018, the party is still young. It will take a long time before the average John Smith will know how to play “games” with crypto. But in this article, if you’ve been such a typical John Smith so far, today you can see how to start your adventure with cryptocurrencies.

Investing in crypto is definitely not a new form of gambling but as you’ll quickly notice, using exchange sites looks a bit like playing games, you predict the price of a cryptocurrency at the given moment just like at the prediction market like Fairlay which is why we decided to name this article this way. We hope you’ll easily understand our introduction on how to play games with crypto!

Step 1 – Choose exchange site

To play games with crypto – first what you need to do is to choose exchange site. In this place, you buy Bitcoins or another crypto currency available there. You simply change “real” money like dollars, euros etc. for the virtual currency.

We will not suggest specific currency changers in this article. However, remember first of all to pay attention to omitting huge fees that can “eat” a significant part of your investment.

Step 2 – Purchase

In each of the money changers, the purchase looks similar. Usually, you choose the “buy bitcoins” option and give the amount for which you want to buy them. You can choose any amount – probably when starting to play games with crypto you’ll start with a small amount, so your balance will look for example like this: 0.00456245 BTC. When you buy, you usually have many options to choose from: it can be both a transfer and a card payment. After a short time – few minutes or hours – you will see your Bitcoins (or other virtual currency) in your wallet.

If you bought Bitcoins and you want to keep them, you do not have to do anything more. However, if you want to exchange them for a different currency, read Step 3.

Step 3 – Stock exchange selection and registration

To buy another crypto – you must register at one of the stock exchange sites. Each site has different exchange rates of particular currencies, has the ability to buy some other cryptocurrencies, or has another – less or more comfortable – interface.

When starting to play games with crypto, do not worry about complex security features like Google Authenticator, or verifying your IP. They are designed to protect your money.

Choose your stock exchange site wisely by taking into consideration the above mentioned factors and doing the right research on the Internet.

Step 4 – Sending your Bitcoins

To trade a crypto – you must now transfer the previously purchased Bitcoins to the wallet assigned to your account. To do this, search your wallet in your cantor and then choose the “send bitcoins” option. Within a dozen minutes or a few hours you should have BTC on the stock exchange site.

Step 5 – Purchase of other cryptos

Once you have BTC, you find the crypto that interests you (usually on the main page using the search engine). Then, you should look at the BUY window. You put there the amount with which you want to play games with crypto and how many pieces you want to buy.

Few hints on how to play games with crypto

Remember that this is a stock exchange, so you set the price yourself, and with each exchange, you pay a fee. Therefore, it is not worth exchanging cryptocurrencies a dozen times a day.

It is worth to play games with crypto on the low rates. Looking at the graphs you see such a red, long candle and you see that the rate is lower than in the last few hours.

If you want to buy something immediately, then use the market prices, and you can even set a very attractive price, which someone will buy instantly.

You can also get familiar with trading, another way to play games with crypto. It means constant buying and selling due to reading a chart or information you get from someone.

When you buy / sell something, you have a bookmark in the stock exchange where you have your orders and transactions.

Remember that for each cryptocurrency you have different wallet address! For example, if you want to transfer BTC from one exchange to your wallet on the second stock exchange, you must use address pairs BTC -> BTC. Committing an error here can be very expensive!

How to play games with crypto? It’s still the beginning

In order to successfully invest in cryptocurrencies, you still need many skills and information, but at the beginning learn our introduction and understand the principles of registration and basic transactions. With time, everything will become simpler and simpler. We strongly encourage you to learn in practice how to play games with crypto!

Ofertas365 Limited has launched Crypto Millions Lotto, the world’s largest online crypto lottery. Crypto Millions Lotto provides a unique opportunity to play with Bitcoin and win Bitcoin as prizes. Customers will receive three free lines as an introductory offer. The jackpot starts at a whopping US$30 million and rolls over until it is won.

Crypto Millions Lotto effectively bypasses the qualifying requirements of residency and any need to participate in local currency, which are common playing conditions of many existing lotteries around the world. Key to Bitcoin’s appeal is the payment freedom it provides, whereby it can be sent and received anywhere in the world, any time.

One of the most significant features is the major step it represents in bringing the world’s most widely used alternative currency further into the mainstream.

“We are delighted to launch Crypto Millions Lotto and believe that giving away three chances to win prizes worth tens of millions of dollars will encourage Bitcoin usage and adoption. Our affiliation with two top notch fiat-to-crypto exchanges – Coinbase and Wirex – will ensure new players get the best possible user experience, the cheapest fees and the most competitive fiat-to-Bitcoin conversion rates,” Sulim Malook, CEO at Ofertas365 said.

For Bitcoin holders, starting to play for the coveted US$30 million jackpot is quick and easy. For those who need to buy Bitcoin, they are directed to market leading affiliate partners – Coinbase and Wirex.

“In common with our partners Ofertas365, Wirex also know about delivering a unique service. As the world’s only licensed business account that allows payments in both crypto and traditional currency, we are pleased to provide our service to Crypto Millions Lotto. Our UK Financial Conduct Authority approval will provide the financial security that players require. Wirex delivers unbeatable value, flexibility and transaction speed combining the efficiency of cryptocurrency payments with the universal acceptance of traditional fiat currency accounts, on a global scale,” Pavel Matveev, CEO of Wirex said.

These capabilities make a perfect match, as Ofertas365 is licensed to operate in more than 100 countries which include anywhere online gambling is not prohibited.

“We believe our lotteries and games will provide a great deal of enjoyment because it’s much more fun to win Bitcoin than fiat currency! We welcome further collaborations and partnerships that will expand and guarantee our offering,” Sulim Malook added.
