In a world ravaged by COVID-19, the Bitcoin halving is like a ray of hope for many.

Speculators are predicting astronomical highs, enthusiasts are stocking up, and the coin itself has risen by $1,000 in the last few days. However, 22 days before Bitcoin’s block reward falls to 6.25 BTC, one crypto-enthusiast faces an extremely enviable choice: choosing between a Lamborghini or 25 BTC.

Here’s a little background for you…

A Golden Opportunity

Last May, FreeBitco.in, the world’s oldest-existing bitcoin faucet, organized the biggest giveaway in crypto – the Win a Lambo Golden Ticket Contest.

The second edition of the contest i.e. Win a Lambo Round 2 ended today, with a provably fair lottery draw picking a winner out of millions of participants.

User 13562178 now faces the choice of a lifetime: a brand new Lamborghini Huracan delivered to their doorstep or $200,000 (approx. 25 BTC) added directly to their wallet!

What Would You Choose?

The bitcoin halving is just 22 days away; if you would’ve found yourself in this position, what would you choose?

A Lamborghini is every crypto-enthusiast’s dream; it’s also the reason FreeBitco.in started this contest in the first place – a way to reward the crypto-community that made FreeBitco.in one of the biggest names in crypto.

Meanwhile, the Bitcoin price has just rallied to $8,000, and experts seem bullish as the long-anticipated halving event approaches. A 25 BTC reward could be worth so much more…

This Choice Could Become Reality for You

Win a Lambo Round 3 is already live at FreeBitco.in. It ends on October 31, 2020, and you can find yourself choosing between a Lambo and $200,000 six months later.

Here are the steps to participate in the contest:

  1. Create an account on FreeBitco.in.
  2. Collect Free BTC or deposit BTC into FreeBitco.in wallet.
  3. Play the HI-LO dice game, or bet on events.
  4. For every 0.005 BTC wagered in total on both the dice game or the event betting page, the user gets 1 Golden Ticket.
  5. Golden Tickets can also be bought for 25,000 satoshi each.
  6. Collect as many Golden Tickets as possible to increase the chances of winning a Lamborghini.
  7. After the contest ends, a provably fair lottery drawing will be conducted to pick the lucky winner.

You only need one ticket to win, but the more you collect, the higher your chances of winning. You have until October 31 to stock up on Golden Tickets, so get started now!

Kronoverse Leaves Enjin To Use Bitcoin SV Solution For Storing In-Game Items

Kronoverse Leaves Enjin To Use Bitcoin SV Solution For Storing In-Game Items
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

After relying on Enjin to define items within CryptoFights, Kronoverse has decided to leave Enjin to use its custom Bitcoin SV (BSV) solution for building in-game items. This decision will greatly benefit Kronoverse users who want a reliable system to buy, sell, and trade gear.

Why did Kronoverse choose to leave Enjin?

“We decided to leave because of problems with Ethereum,” said Adam Kling, the CEO, and founder of Kronoverse. “Bitcoin SV is the best choice for us and the value we are working to bring to the esports community.”

Making the decision to transition to BSV was the result of research and development efforts that continued to show that Ethereum was not the best fit for what Kronoverse envisioned. Here are the key issues Kronoverse dealt with when building on Ethereum:

  • Ethereum is at capacity, slow, can’t scale, and expensive. This is discouraging to gamers who want to buy, sell, and trade in-game items on a frequent basis.
  • Proof of Work is the only proven consensus mechanism and we lack confidence that PoS/DPoS will work.
  • Ethereum 2 scaling approaches are still experimental whereas BSV has demonstrated its scaling ability.

What are some of the benefits of transitioning to Bitcoin SV?

As part of its efforts to make in-game item ownership more scalable and accessible to gamers around the world, Kronoverse is turning to BSV as its solution of choice. Kronoverse is creating a better item protocol with BSV.

BSV is also faster and cheaper to conduct trades. This means that players won’t have to worry about racking up ridiculous fees just to do things like trading duplicate items and selling unwanted items. Due to its efficiency, BSV is capable of handling millions of transactions without slowing down. Kronoverse users can have confidence that nothing will go wrong when they’re trading and selling.

Kronoverse users will also be able to use more available features that Enjin isn’t capable of like storing the 3D model of an item. Files can be stored on blockchain similar to Dropbox which is convenient and easy to use. This feature is just one of the many details that will add to the total user experience that gamers will enjoy in the Kronoverse platform.

What does this mean for existing holders of Enjin items?

If you’ve already purchased CryptoFights in-game items, you don’t need to worry. All of your Enjin-based pre-release items will be honored but these tokens will serve as a claim check for BSV tokens. To make this possible, we’re releasing a conversion smart contract in a few months which gives users the ability to melt Enjin items, keep the stored ENJ, and receive an equivalent item usable in CryptoFights.

Introducing the Kronoverse Marketplace

As part of its vision to empower gamers with true item ownership, the Kronoverse Marketplace is slated to be available for later this year. All users will be able to sell unwanted items for profit. Kronoverse users will also be able to trade with other players to find the in-game gear they want and need.

Whether you buy or win an item, it’s automatically added to your Kronoverse wallet as soon as you acquire it. Your mobile wallet app makes it easy to read any item’s description, stats (i.e. rarity, value, type, and which games it’s compatible with). Each item also has its own history that provides the original ownership, when it has been listed for sale and all previous owners of the item.

Another way users can benefit from the marketplace is the list of wanted items and items for sale. Logging into the Kronoverse system allows you to see your own items, balance, and make trades using items or cash. You can also start a trade listing with multiple items or seek rare items for a cash reward.

What’s next?

Within the next couple of weeks, the launch date for the CryptoFights open beta will be announced. The open beta will be available on Android and will be free to play. It’ll give you the chance to experience the latest updates, improved gameplay, and test out your skills against other players around the world.

When the full game and the Marketplace is released later this year, everyone will experience the power and benefits that come from transitioning Kronoverse to BSV.

Q&A With a BTC Whale on BitcoinTalk
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

FreeBitco.in, the oldest-existing Bitcoin faucet in the world, is bringing you a 2-Day Q&A With a BTC Whale, on BitcoinTalk!

FreeBitco.in’s Lamborghini Giveaway Round 2, the biggest giveaway on the internet, ended on April 30. A provably fair draw picked out a winner, known simply by their ID 13562178.

The winner had a tough choice: a Lamborghini Huracan, or $200,000 in BTC. They eventually chose the latter, and Free Bitcoin obliged.

This mysterious crypto-enthusiast was holding 200,000 tickets, which approximately equals 1,000 BTC wagered over 6 months at FreeBitco.in. The website’s staff on the BitcoinTalk forum has claimed that this user has wagered the highest amount in terms of USD over the course of a year.

While that amount can’t be disclosed for reasons of privacy, a wagering volume of 1000 BTC almost equals $10 million and can be easily linked to a BTC Whale. And this Whale is answering your questions this weekend.

Q&A Weekend at BitcoinTalk

If you’ve ever wanted to know the secret to becoming a BTC whale, this is the perfect time to ask. The Q&A ran from Saturday, 9th May to Sunday, 10th May on BitcoinTalk.

“User 13562178 has been kind enough to agree to host a Q&A on BitcoinTalk,” said ‘wetsuit’, founder and owner of FreeBitco.in. “We would like the crypto-community to participate and learn all they can from potentially a BTC Whale.”

The identity of User 13562178, also known as fbtclam on BitcoinTalk, will remain a secret, but all their answers will be out in the open for all to see. Please be civil and keep questions short and precise. Ask any question you like, and you might just learn what it takes to become a BTC whale. Come one, come all!
