1  Local / Hrvatski (Croatian) / Domaci Crypto projekti koji su zapravo uspjeli? on: January 23, 2024, 07:01:43 PM
Radim nešto listu uspješnih njemačkih kripto projekata, pa mi palo na pamet ić malo guglat lokalce, ali ne mogu ništa pretjerano pronać, a da valja.

Znam da po Hrvatskoj ima dosta dick measuringa po medijima tko ima jaču/bolju mjenjačnicu, ali nitko još nije uspio napraviti neki breakthrough proizvod. Gledam baš sad Electrocoin što se prsi da su konkurent binanceu, a nemaju više od 50k eur godišnje dobiti. Sjećam se da je Šimić po Zagrebu bio launchao neke BTC bankomate isto tako, ali mislim da je to odumrijelo.

Isto tako vidim da je Srbija jaka u eventima (Blockchain Week?), ali oni su oduvijek znali kako rokat po kvalitetnim eventima tako da me to ne čudi.

Što smo imali od uspješnih kripto proizvoda, usluga ili evenata?

2  Economy / Gambling discussion / AMA: I Operate an Online Casino on: January 22, 2024, 09:12:12 AM
    It's been a year since I've joined this forum and I was somewhat reluctant in opening an "Ask me Anything" thread due to all the spam going on in the gambling section, but several users requested it, and I've also enabled self-moderation to battle the spammers. Hopefully it will be a fun exercise where we can all together make this section more interesting.

    So, I've been in this industry for a while now, I'm part of a team that operates several brands, and have also worked within other operations, including MGA, UKGC and Curacao licensed brands. I would say that I know the ins and outs of most of the operations out there, including some high end competitors, and I would love to share any insights or answer any burning questions that someone outside of the industry has. I'm not the owner of the casino though, so I'll not be able to answer questions targeted towards that area of the business, but I can try to shed light on anything else.

    I can cover almost anything, game selections, bonus methods, VIP players, troubles with the law, license structure. You can ask anything, and if the questions are really interesting, I'll include them in this post as an edit.

    Regarding the self-moderation aspect of the thread, I will not abuse it. I don't mind entering a proper argument, maybe you'll learn something new, maybe I will. But if I smell an AI-written post, or a random one just to boost your campaign numbers, I will delete it. I already created more than enough cool threads that got eaten up by spammers, I don't want this one to be another of those.


Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How much money do you need to open a Crypto or Fiat online casino?
The minimum recommended amount for an experienced team starting an online venture would be in-between 3.8 Mil and 5 Mil, all depending on the team and their salaries. Most new casino operations get profitable anywhere between 14 to 18 months, so you would need enough money to survive that period. However, that's for people who have previous experience with managing a casino operation and are bringing in a lot of contacts from the industry already. If you're starting from scratch, with a junior team, you will need to set more money aside for consultants and failed campaigns.

Q: Can I open an online casino by myself?
I wouldn't recommend opening a casino by yourself or even with a team of junior people, the market is so competitive that you will either be eaten up by the competition, or by scammers. It's a tough job with a lot of stress. If you would like to enter the industry, and do something by yourself, you can always open an affiliate site with Wordpress and work your way up.

Q: How many people do work at an online casino?
Smaller operations usually have up to 15 people, medium operations up to 500, larger can go up to 5000, it all depends on how many services they do in-house. If you're outsourcing almost every aspect of your business, then you can work with a smaller team, but if you have your own customer support or your own casino platform, then we're talking about several hundred people for just one department.

Q: How does a regular online casino work?
Most smaller to medium operations work in a so called puzzle-style operation, that means that you, as the operator, are made up of several pieces that are completely separate from your business, with which you either partner up or you pay them for the services they offer.

#1. The Casino Platform itself, the key element. Same how there are platforms like Wordpress and Kentico, there are also finished solutions for your Casino, usually built either in Angular, React or, sometimes, in Next.JS. Those are companies that are known within the industry and usually manage everything for you, but for a fee of course.
#2. Game Providers, the most important aspect of a casino, there are over 100 different gaming providers on the market who take care of the games, their quality and security. So instead of making your own games, you just plug them into your casino.
#3. Payment Providers, you usually do not process payments in-house, and it's also not recommended since it's a lot of money in question, so you rather let a professional manage that. This is why you get payment providers like Mastercard, PayPal, GooglePay, ApplePay and similar services.
#4. Affiliate Platform Provider, instead of having your own system for onboarding affiliates, you usually outsource this as well.
#5. Customer Support Providers, again, instead of hiring 30 employees of your own, you just find a company that can manage this aspect for you, usually it has to be an experienced or iGaming dedicated company because there's a lot of lingo going on. However, this is also one of the reasons why some smaller operations have bad customer support = because it's outsourced. [/li][/list]


So, basically, the smaller you are, the more you're outsourcing, but the more percentage of your winnings goes to the providers. The bigger you are, the more stuff you're doing in-house.

Q: How much money does an online casino earn?

There are tons of casinos that are publicly trading, so their earnings are available to the public. For an example, you can Google Betsson AB Quarter Report, and you'll see that they are ranging around 50 Million per quarter, but they are also a huge operation that eats a lot of money by itself. Smaller operations usually earn anywhere between 250.000 to a million per month, but since it's such a volatile market, you have to have a fat war chest for hard times.

Hey,

I'm working on a new project and I would like to do a collab with website owners, bloggers or service providers that have the opportunity of placing an article or a link on their website in exchange for BTC.

I am not looking for SEO agencies, I had enough of those, I just want to speak with individuals who are running a genuine website with a purpose. Depending on your sites strength, my prices range from $25 to $250.

The only rule is that the site has to be around cryptocurrency.

4  Local / Hrvatski (Croatian) / Što jedan coin čini boljime od drugog coina? on: December 07, 2023, 04:24:06 AM
Evo mene tutleka došao tražiti malo mentorshipa Cheesy

Radim na nekom proposalu di baratam sa sljedećim valutama i trebao bih prezentirati opise i neki business value za implementaciju sljedećih coinova:

DOGE
ETH
USDT
TRON
SOL
ETH
ADA
Binance coin

I koliko sam shvatio sa svoje strane, svi coinovi šeraju skoro pa iste benefite: Brze transakcije, anonimnost ako si dobro poslozis setup, top notch security, "potential for growth" šeme, što mi baš ne pomaže diferencirati ih.

Čak i kada idem zguglat neke versus termove, dobivam fluff rečenice poput ove: "Cardano's focus has been on creating a system that is cheaper to use and more efficient than Ethereum but that also avoids the intermittent instability of other upstart competitors such as Solana"


So to my question, koje stavke bi trebao gledati kao primarne prilikom diferenciranja coinova? Ono što mi prvo pada na pamet je reć da je DOGE pizdarija u usporedbi s ostalima, ali opet ne bi ispalo kul prema ekipi koja je unutar tog communitija, tako da sam malo razbacan.




5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Are You Tax Efficient With Your Gambling Habbits? on: September 17, 2023, 06:46:46 AM
I'm researching the topic on how many users actually report their winnings or losses to the tax authority, and from the current research there's a major discrepancy in the processes from country to country;


Quote
#1. Residents of the UK, Canada, and Australia don’t need to pay anything at all, as these governments view this money as the result of good fortune and do not view gambling as a profession. These earnings do not need to be reported, and nothing is owed on them.  
#2. Malta is also pretty simple. Gambling winnings are only taxed if the player is a professional gambler, though this term is not strictly defined, but if you're earning above the "grace amount" of 12950 EUR, you can apply for it.
#3. The US taxes all gambling winnings as income. In fact, there’s even a special form for documenting your gambling wings: Form W-2G. This money is counted towards your yearly income and will be taxed at whatever bracket you fall into at both the state and federal levels. You must keep track of the type of gambling, the amount of the gambling winnings, and the general ratio of the winnings to the wager, as these will all be needed for filing. Conversely, any gambling losses that occur on a real money online casino platform can be tax deductible in an amount up to your total yearly winnings. Losses and winnings must be filed separately and not as a net amount.
Source: EsportsHeadlines.com


Now I'm quite curious how other gamblers are managing this part of the story, if they manage it at all.

So, question to you, did you ever consider paying taxes on your gambling winnings, or deduct the taxes with the losses you've created? If not, what is the reasoning behind it?

9  Economy / Gambling / Recommendations for Good Esports Betting Sites? on: February 10, 2023, 10:24:24 AM
Hey guys,

I'm looking in to various esports betting sites and I was curious on where do you usually gamble?

So far I've tried LadBrokers, Betsafe and Betway, but I didn't test out any crypto-exclusive ones.

 
10  Other / Off-topic / Dining on the Blockchain - Your Experience With Restaurants Accepting Crypto? on: January 27, 2023, 09:38:47 AM
There's tons of businesses that accept crypto as a form of payment, but restaurants were the biggest surprise for me personally. From snack and sandwich shops up to michelin-star restaurants, it seems like crypto is penetrating more and more in to the service industry, and I'm curious on what's your experience with it. Is there a restaurant in your area that accepts crypto, what systems do they use and how was the whole experience?

I just went through this article on CaptainAltCoin.com and found out that there's one in my location, so I'll def jump over and chat a bit with the staff about the whole thing, I'm really curious how they did it and how many customers actually prefer to pay in crypto over fiat. At the end of the day, after the pandemic most of them accept contactless, so it's just a tap of the phone - the source of the funds shouldn't matter.




11  Local / Hrvatski (Croatian) / [AMA] Vodim Online Crypto Casino on: January 24, 2023, 01:14:51 PM
Ej ekipa,

evo kao što sam bio spomenuo launcham ovaj thread, prvo tu u našoj sekciji, a kasnije ga možda proširim na gambling.

Prošle godine smo team i ja launchali crypto casino CoinSlotty.com, launch PR možete vidjeti ovdje: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/stable-tech-n-v-launches-090300327.html
Ubrzo nakon toga se dogovorilo partnerstvo s BTCGosu, možete njegov post vidjeti ovdje: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5262141.msg61538084#msg61538084
Nakon godišnjih sam onda lupio ANN thread ovdje: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5432857.0
I sad sam sa Frkom i Trofom pokrenuo review kampanju ovdje: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5434945.0


Mogu vam odgovoriti na pitanja oko toga kako otvoriti i voditi fiat ili kripto kasino, opcenito o industriji, igrama, settingsima i ostalim detaljima.

Prije nego krenem s nekim sitnicama koje sam već vidio na forumu ću vam samo pojasniti terminologiju:

Operater - to je Online Casino, zovemo ih operaterima. Stake, Betsafe i Bet365 su operateri. Oni mogu biti white-label (licencirani) i black-label (bez licence).
Provider - ovo može biti Game, Platform i Payments provider. To su firme koje vam daju određenu uslugu da "sastavite" casino, recimo ako tražite platformu, onda idete SoftSwissu, ako tražite Game providera, idete Pragmatic Playu, ako tražite payments providera, pingate CoinsPaid.
Affiliate - klasična afilijet individua, recimo BTCGosu je affiliate.
Supplier - ovo su agencije najčešće, recimo ako Stake izbaci neku novu brandiranju kampanju, vrlo vjerojatno je angažirao suppliera da im riješi projekt. Ovdje na forumu bi Cro2 spadali pod suppliere u jednu ruku, jer imaju uslugu i posreduju s njom.


Da započnem s nekim sitnicama na koje sam već naletio na forumu:

Jesu li live casino sekcije pre-recordane na svim operatorima?
Ovo sam baš nedavno vidio i nasmijalo me Grin Uglavnom, ako je licencirani operater (Curacao, Estonia, MTA, Gibraltar, UK ili neki drugi regulator) nema tu pre-recordanih live casino sekcija, sve je live, i sve je "servis" kojeg nudi game supplier. Isti taj game provider je pod regulatorom i njemu je u najboljem interesu imati legitimnu uslugu jer ga svi ostali operatori koriste, a industrija je jako mala u jednu ruku, bad news spreads quick.  


RTP na slot mašinama se može mijenjat konstantno
Ovo je sad pak malo kompliciranije, ali se sve svodi na to jel operater licenciran ili nije. Ako si licenciran, imaš ugovor s game providerom i moraš bit unutar njegovog playfielda. Ako je Book of Dead poznat po tome da ima RTP unutar rangea od 94 do 96%, a ti si licencirani kasino koji ga je onboardao, onda moraš bit unutar tog playfielda. Ne može se casino manager samo jedno jutro magično probuditi i reć "e, danas će RTP bit 20%" jer će ga game provider ganjati ako mu naruši brand slot aparata i maknuti iz ugovora. Druga stvar je ako je to crnjaka kasino sa svojim igrama, što je česta praxa.

With that said, postoje sljedeće situacije:
#1. Online kasino situacija, u kojoj team odluči da neka igra "daje previše" i da se mora spustiti RTP od 96% na 95%, ali ovo je užasno rijetko jer se taj 1% osjeti debelo na aktivnosti korisnika i najčešće ima pozitivan učinak samo prvih mjesec dana, nakon toga si si sjebo ostatak godine jer svi drugi kasinoji imaju veći RTP.
#2. Offline kasino situacija, u kojoj drugačija pravila vrijede za njih jer nisu pod klasičnim regulatorima, tako da neka offline kasina mogu imat RTP od 75% bez beda.


Eto, čisto da započnem, pucajte ako vas nešto zanima Smiley




12  Bitcoin / Legal / US regulators warn banks over cryptocurrency risks on: January 04, 2023, 10:02:33 AM
I think this whole FTX issue that we had last year is definitely not helping the crypto world.

US regulators have issued their first ever joint warning to banks over the risks associated with the cryptocurrency market, the main problem here it seems the lack of control.

Here are some of the points discussed in the joint warning:

Quote
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve), the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)
(collectively, the agencies) are issuing the following statement on crypto-asset1 risks to banking
organizations.

The events of the past year have been marked by significant volatility and the exposure of
vulnerabilities in the crypto-asset sector. These events highlight a number of key risks associated
with crypto-assets and crypto-asset sector participants that banking organizations should be
aware of, including:

• Risk of fraud and scams among crypto-asset sector participants.
• Legal uncertainties related to custody practices, redemptions, and ownership rights, some of
which are currently the subject of legal processes and proceedings.
• Inaccurate or misleading representations and disclosures by crypto-asset companies,
including misrepresentations regarding federal deposit insurance, and other practices that
may be unfair, deceptive, or abusive, contributing to significant harm to retail and
institutional investors, customers, and counterparties.
• Significant volatility in crypto-asset markets, the effects of which include potential impacts
on deposit flows associated with crypto-asset companies.
• Susceptibility of stablecoins to run risk, creating potential deposit outflows for banking
organizations that hold stablecoin reserves.
• Contagion risk within the crypto-asset sector resulting from interconnections among certain
crypto-asset participants, including through opaque lending, investing, funding, service, and
operational arrangements. These interconnections may also present concentration risks for
banking organizations with exposures to the crypto-asset sector.
• Risk management and governance practices in the crypto-asset sector exhibiting a lack of
maturity and robustness.
• Heightened risks associated with open, public, and/or decentralized networks, or similar
systems, including, but not limited to, the lack of governance mechanisms establishing
oversight of the system; the absence of contracts or standards to clearly establish roles,
responsibilities, and liabilities; and vulnerabilities related to cyber-attacks, outages, lost or
trapped assets, and illicit finance.

It is important that risks related to the crypto-asset sector that cannot be mitigated or controlled
do not migrate to the banking system.

4th of May 2023 Update:

Hey guys!

Happy to announce that we entered the third phase of our project, and are on the right way of becoming a community driven crypto casino.


In November 2022 we re-launched the brand under new management, where we focused on a more secure, robust and licensed gambling experience. Our goal was to establish our name within the crypto community, partner up with several well-known affiliates, and overall close the gap between unregulated and fully licensed online crypto gambling. Our friends at BTCGosu.com helped us a lot here, there were one of our first contacts here on BitcoinTalk, and I truly believe that we wouldn't be here without their help Smiley  

In January 2023 we introduced our brand to you guys, the BitcoinTalk.org community. We launched several projects, including a crypto casino review thread, design competitions and the first version of this ANN thread, that today gets a fresh new look thanks to Jayce! With this approach, we let our players voice their opinion about our brand publicly, and work towards improving whatever is in our power to do so.

In February 2023 we reached our first Affiliate milestones – with 100 closed affiliate deals promoting Coinslotty around the online crypto landscape. Through a gifting campaign, we celebrated that achievement with various leaders from the industry, including BTCGosu, Cryptorunner, Bitcoinist and many more. 5,000 hand-made golden chocolate coins were distributed to each of our partners, together with custom-branded gadgets Smiley

And today, on May the 4th, we launched the third iteration of the product, a rebranded and improved experience that now flies new colours, features a new font, higher bonuses and an attractive VIP program. Added to this, we also increased our offerings and partnered up with even more online casino software providers.

I hope you guys will have fun, and if you want to learn more about our brand I left a few links below Smiley

14  Bitcoin / Legal / Brazil Crypto Laws Demand Up to 6 Years Prison for Embezzlement on: December 22, 2022, 09:02:29 PM
Did anyone follow this news? I just saw it, they also, just a few hours ago, submitted a law legalizing crypto payments.


Quote
Brazil lawmakers have formally approved a regulatory framework set to govern the country’s crypto sector.

The bill drew attention earlier this year after a previous version passed through the Senate in April. It had since since been stuck in the Chamber of Deputies, the government’s lower house.

Local media reported that the text, written by federal deputy Aureo Ribeiro, includes a new crime: digital asset embezzlement, which appears targeted at exchange operators.

Penalties include prison time between two to six years along with fines, which can also be handed out to entities which operate in Brazil without a physical presence.

There’s also a rule requiring crypto companies such as exchanges and other intermediaries to hold a virtual service provider license, similar to rules set in place across the US and Europe. 

The country’s efforts to regulate local crypto players comes amid turmoil in the wider digital asset space. Strife was most recently prompted by the collapse of FTX, which has left up to one million users out of pocket including regular investors, crypto projects and hedge funds.

Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried allegedly siphoned user funds to make risky bets across crypto markets via sister trading unit Alameda Research, leading to a multibillion-dollar black hole in its balance sheet and a crippling liquidity crisis.

Brazil lawmakers however disagreed over whether to demand crypto exchanges ensure client funds are segregated from operational cash. This would hypothetically protect customers from corporate malfeasance and other crippling events such as exchange bankruptcy.

But Ribeiro effectively opposed this proposed change, saying it would stifle the crypto market. Currently on hold, the asset segregation issue will be debated at a later date.
Crypto is big in Brazil

Government-appointed bodies will reportedly decide which digital assets can be listed for trade, and relevant companies will have an 180-day grace period to comply with the incoming rules.

Brazil, which has suffered from high inflation for decades, is one of the most active crypto markets in the world, according to recent Chainalysis data. About 5% of its population actively invests in crypto, and more than 900 Brazil-based companies currently accept crypto as payment. 

One silver lining could be that the domino-style tumbling of unregulated crypto firms over the past year may usher in regulated institutions with stronger compliance frameworks and robust risk systems. At least, that’s what Brazil’s incoming crypto regulations could inspire.

Brazil’s bill is already approved, but it will now head for a signature from outgoing president Jair Bolsonaro before his term ends on Dec. 31. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is expected to take up office on Jan. 1.

Some lawmakers reportedly preferred the bill be approved during Bolsonaro’s term, over fears Silva may not be as enthusiastic about cryptocurrency.

Hey guys,

I saw that a lot of forum members have their own crypto affiliates sites, I already reached out to some of them like https://www.btcgosu.com/, but I would love to get more contacts.

If you own a site and act as a crypto affiliate, ping me and let's discuss the options Smiley

We are officially launching our crypto casino tomorrow, and I'm looking to partner up for reviews, listings and press releases.

16  Economy / Services / [Hiring Paid Testers] Testing our new Casino Platform on: December 13, 2022, 03:27:49 PM
Hey guys,

We soft launched our crypto casino and I was thinking of employing a few forum members to help me test it out.

The user would get $100 in BTC through CoinsPaid upfront, from which $20 would be to gamble, and $80 for your service.

The list for troubleshooting includes several things, but will mostly cover:
- The registration flow and your comments on it
- The deposit flow and your comments on it
- Testing out the providers with one game
- Testing out the customer support via live chat or e-mail

Important: Once you register, your account will be marked as a test account, you'll not be able to withdraw your winnings.

I'm of course open for suggestions on how to work this out Smiley

We would most probably start this week, latest Friday GMT+1.

Thank you.

I was on a crypto convention some years ago and met the guy behind the FUN token, he sold me this really good story on how they will revolutionize the casino industry once they launch fully. Now, god knows how many year later, I can still see them around, but instead of a "revolution" or "disruption", they are mostly just hovering around the industry.

Now, I'm aware that licensed casinos are tied to payment providers, and then they mostly use whichever currency that payment provider offers, but I personally would still love to see some exotic coins here and there. Something like WINk or Wagerr.

So, I wanted to ask the community in which coins would make the most sense to get implemented, which ones would you like to see more off?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Valve's Steam Deck as a Mining Machine? on: December 05, 2022, 09:50:08 AM
Hey guys,

I'm trying to make an article that would rank all the current gen consoles and their mining capabilities, this is just for a random assignment that I'm doing, I'm not serious about mining on consoles Cheesy

I found enough info on the PS5 and Xbox Series XIS, but I'm having trouble getting any on Valve's Steam Deck.

This is the console I'm talking about: https://store.steampowered.com/steamdeck

It is a Zen 2 + RDNA 2 setup on Linux, and it can be easily modified.

In terms of the software and hardware, what would need to be modified and what could one expect?

p.s. I'm still new to the forum so I hope I placed this in the right sub-category.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / What would be an ideal KYC solution? on: December 01, 2022, 04:21:05 PM
Hey guys,

With all the KYC talk lately I wanted to open up a thread and ask about your opinion.

The side of the user:
- Prefers no KYC
- Prefers anon coins as a payment platform
- If a KYC is triggered, they want to trust the brand with their documents

The side of the casino:
- Regulators are asking them to do KYC, but they need to find a balance on when it's triggered. E.g. to keep a portion of the user happy, they can rise the trigger to a certain amount.
- They are tied to a payment provider, either because of the license or CMS, and can offer only a certain portion of cryptocurrency.
- Users are abusing them if there's absolutely no KYC matrix in the system.

What would, in your opinion, be the best balance here?

Efialtis from BTCGosu mentioned that some of the casino managers make exceptions, and I can imagine how that's possible, but I'm curious in what you would like to see there.



Regarding KYC: Their management confirmed with me personally that they would not enforce KYC. (Same old story, we could of course argue about that just like with any curacao licensed crypto casino) - the good news is when I have personal confirmation of such a statement, then I am putting a "No" and if they break their word at any point of time, I would take action. That is how I have always been handling this topic and how I will continue doing it.
