Almost no shot that we do another signature campaign, but thanks for your interest.

It is better if you can provide regular promotions or add VIP program to make people attracted to play in mintdice regularly.

That's something that's also had a fairly serious amount of development is our VIP program. It was reworked a lot but hasn't been launched yet. That's coming. Anyone that has ever had any play on the website will gain rewards retroactively which includes many things including cash (crypto) rewards.

Promotional activity would probably come around at the start of 2023 if things can continue to go to plan. Ever since our 2.0 platform launched, development has been much more steady and stable than before.
In all fairness, they did hold a promotion when they launched giving away 5K sats no deposit required to bring in new users.

I did not see your previous Signature campaign to know if you had a reputable campaign manager or if you did this on your own.  Huh
Iirc it ran a few weeks and was managed by Yahoo. Hard to say but I imagine promotional events offer a better return, as well as possible retention when comparing it to Sig campaign costs.

I think that in principle it is not right to leave positive feedback or include your alt in your trust list. I have remembered that LoyceV has an alt and he has neither left positive feedback (only neutral to reflect that it is his alt) nor has he included it in his trust list.
Neutral feedback should be the standard for any and all alts. It's visible enough to get the point across. The use of an alt to keep the main account secure is nothing new, people get tripped up on how to treat the account is the problem.

It does open the door for potential abuses or a greater voting power, if you originally had th ereputation and trust to grow it. I doubt this was the intent, but I remember a few people in the past running into the same issue. Moving forward any and all known alts, could be added to th eblacklist that was running- not sure how often it's updated. Individual DT users can exclude the alt on their own, which should easily enough remove it from DT.

The rest is unfortunarte to see another relationship deteriorate on the forum. It's personal/business and I think this summed it up for Yogg fairly well.

After seeing several demonstrations from this user, it is quite obvious that not only would I not trust them, I also tend to seek to prevent other users from possibly losing their BTC.

I mean, he is more than trustworthy when it comes to buying or selling an item, or even escrowing funds for other users, but this is not what my point is about.

Thank you everyone. Smiley

Hard to put into feedback but looks neutral overall.

Edit: Yogg, I don't believe the negative is warranted on the Krogg account as written. That would be best suited to a neutral given the comment isn't related to how you feel they handle trades.

Not only this, the site owner lost the data too. I know we have more features in new sites, but the site owner should take care of their clients' data or lose trust.
I don't recall anything about them losing Data. They were able to confirm balances and port those over to the new acounts created on their new platfrorm. They have given their reasons for making their business decision as to why they moved over to a new platform. Short answer is user experience and a custm build for total control to provide the service they envision.
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Just seeing what interest there is for another Betnomi Poker Series on: January 09, 2022, 08:07:07 PM
I think it would be alot of extra work for me due to I'd have to keep track of who knocks out who and what each persons bounty is as I don't believe the Betnomi software is coded for all that.
That makes sense, just wasn't sure what was available for a format.

  • Starting time seems most want the same or near it which was 6pm UTC
  • Starting chip amounts, noone seemed to really have an opinion on this. I would like to go with 50k
  • Blinds, I am thinking 5 minute since we will likely have 50k chips
  • Buyin? somewhere between $10 and $20
  • 1 rebuy sounds cool and builds a prizepool so i'm 100% ok with this
  • Day we are playing? Saturday or Sunday?
  • I think we should make sure there is interest for a weekend series before we start making a weekday series.

If we stick with a 6pm UTC or close to it, I am fine with either day. Saturday makes sense for those in timezones where it would be late evening. I can't remember what we did before but 10/15$ seems like what would accomodate most. rebuys can help the prizepool if people choose to fire that second bullet.... when I suck out on them.

I like the 5 minute turbo blind structure. Would 50K chips then put us at like  a "double stack" sort of start - 200BB . Deepstack poker can be a lot of fun so I don't see a problem with it.

I may or may not be able to play next weekend as I'm at work, but will keep an eye out. The plant has become busier than it used to be so a mid shift tourney might not be in the cards for me anymore; woe is me.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Just seeing what interest there is for another Betnomi Poker Series on: January 06, 2022, 10:26:51 PM
Thanks for the message. I'd be interested in playing again, as always I would only make what my shcedule allows which usually means about half the games. I do think our best bet for trying to accomodate the majority of timezones is to try and go with a Friday Saturday as it would allow most people with jobs not to worry about work the next day, should it be latter in the tournament.

Whatever structure the majority likes is good with me. Here would be my ideal I guess.

8 minute blinds, allow late reg and maybe 1 rebuy should you bust out early. I think it would be neat to play some PKO bounty style games as well. Perhaps that could be part of the sponsored portion to increase the prizepool per tourney. My only ask would be that if there is a Championship format to the series we offer up 2 dates for the participants to decide on for the game.

I am also not opposed to playing a turbo format if we are interested in mixing up th egmaes potentially between weeks. Those are 5 minute blinds generally and can be fun, especially if you start out deepstack.

Considering they are willing to KYC I wouldn't touch this deal. Canada has several simple options available for anyone willing to KYC with minimmal fee impact (we've emerging from the dark age of Quadriga), so it doesn't make any sense to complicate it by going on forum for an untrusted deal.

Talking with the team, if you think you have funds on the original site - Log into using your old credentials. Check your balances. If any reach out to support and they will create a withdrawal for you.

Your old account will not be ported over, you need to create a new account to play on

There will be a new ANN created in a few weeks covering the changes and what everyone can expect from the new and improved platform. you can reach out to me, or the Betnomi account with questions and concerns. The telegram chat is still the fastest way to reach someone as I don't believe live support is currently available.

Stay away from betnomi! blatant scam, together with 1xbit.
They do not pay out, and delay withdrawals as long as they can.
Definitely not a scam. What is your issue? With the old website and third party wallets there could be delays.. If no T&C violations occur funds have always been payed out.
8  Economy / Reputation / Re: iv4n: Looking for feedback - should the negative tag remain? on: September 26, 2021, 11:27:49 AM
So this is it? Prosecutor sues you, prosecutor judges you!?
For sure I am not guilty of what Jolly accused me here, that is clear... but still he took the liberty to do what he feels like and nobody can do anything about it? Smiley
I guess more people here think that negative shouldn't remain, but who cares about that!? What a funny story this is...
For what it's worth I don't see your red. Long ago, I excluded this particular user. Simply because I don't trust their judgement. (which is what they should have done with you, based on their opinion)
It's funny that the same thigns are still ongoing, and the same sort of "I need the communities opinion" threads pop up. It's simple, especially when it's clear the overstep taking place. I wouldn't hold my breath Iv4n, as it's already been laid out for them in clear terms by one of the few users who understands the system, and uses it accordingly with out faulter.

I'm only posting as we've interacted plenty of times and I know you'll be better off ignoring the rating and probably the user moving forward. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks for the advice, none of my posts have personal information and I have made sure of that. I reported the user to theymos and I hope they and their ip gets banned. We dont need people like him on this forum.
It won't result in a ban, there's a "take care of yourself environment" here on the forum. Just take precautions.
10  Economy / Reputation / Re: Someone tried to what looks like groom me. on: September 23, 2021, 09:00:25 PM
Can I suggest you scrub all of your personal information from your posts. Whether real or not, there's a decent chance asking people not to engage with you won't work. It's also fairly easy for users to slip up and provide more information than they intend to, especially if you are indeed a minor.
11  Economy / Gambling / Re: 🏆 - Crypto Centric 🏀Sportsbook and 🎲Casino - 🔥Biggest Jackpots on: September 23, 2021, 06:50:14 PM
Yes, I would be going to play poker even at a private table ... just with symbolic contributions, just to fight again with those I know. By the way, I am very glad that you are online again, if I am not mistaken, you haven’t been on the forum for a long time either, I hope everything is in order.
Just haven't had a lot to post about. Things seemed stuck on personal issues that I just couldn't be bothered to care about much. With everything going on this year with Crypto and other projects I've been focused elsewhere.

Thanks, I will contact him directly, and at the same time find out if everything is okay .... and [I'm a little surprised that your contract for the rental of an avatar is still active].
Yeah we keep in touch, and sort it out every couple of months. Never had an issue that couldn't be resolved. I have recently heard from them, and that they have plans that include the forum once again. I've been busy and haven't got any exact details but it sounds exciting and like there will be a lack of 3rd party issues going forward.
12  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Best exchange in Canada? on: September 23, 2021, 06:42:30 PM
Sorry for the really late response,
All good, I wound up bitting the bullet and just going through with it. Considering in the time I looked I didn't come across a bunch of scam accusations that was good enough. Just like you said dead simple to use once KYC'd and funds were in my account the next business day I believe. A convenient little off-ramp, I'll probably continue to convert most coins to Tether on Binance then transfer to NDAX to cash out. Assuming they continue to accept Tether for the forseeable.
13  Economy / Gambling / Re: 🏆 - Crypto Centric 🏀Sportsbook and 🎲Casino - 🔥Biggest Jackpots on: September 03, 2021, 10:10:05 PM
A bonus that has not yet been received ... I will wait a couple more weeks, but I'm afraid then I will have to take action. Although I really hope that Betnomi will settle all his problems if they exist and become active again in the near future. [Also, I miss their poker tournaments a little] Cool
I agree on the tournaments, they were fun. Maybe when things calm down a bit we can all find somewhere to play again. Even if it's just once every couple weeks.

Did you reach out to Sorsis or anyone in particular? I believe Telegram works best. I know they often get a little bogged down, and can sometimes legit just forget about things for a while. A gentle nudge and you should see your bonus in no time.
14  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Best exchange in Canada? on: September 03, 2021, 07:26:51 PM
Another option worth considering might be Ndax, which is more of an actual exchange. The spread is smaller, but they do have a 0.2% trading fee and a flat $25 CAD withdraw fee for fiat. If you're working with larger amounts, you might come out ahead.
This is where I'm at with this. Starting to look for a decent off ramp in Canada, especially across various coins. I've settled on NDAX, but it's my first Canadian exchange since Quadriga. Dealing anything over a couple thousand and all the spread providers, including Coinberry just come off overly expensive. Another upside to NDAX is it has a wider array of deposit options for coins I'm looking to sell, saving me another conversion elsewhere.

I just don't know many people who have used it. Not planning on storing funds there, just simply depositing crypto and converting to CAD, then fire it off to the old bank account. Has anyone used it and what was your experience? registration was a breeze apart from the forced usage of Google authenticator.

Sad but true! In recent months I wanted to play some tournaments and in moments I wanted there wasn't any with players! There are some people on the cash tables, but nothing special, in some moments even that is dead!

And SwC still owes me two SwC flexi hats... I won two tournaments more than a year ago, I sent them my address and all that two times... and still nothing!
Yeah I pulled out of the site. It was fun when it was fun, but that all seemed to change last year. I welcomed the chat moderation policy, actually think they should have just done away with it completely. Would have really helped with all the begging for stakes.

While I don't know of anyone who multi accounted at the same table, there were rumours and we did see a user with 2 accountsn from our series in the end; not that they ever played the same tournament.

Yeah the hats not showing up was just salt in the wound.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] DEEPER NETWORK | Bandwidth Sharing = Mining | $600K on Indiegogo on: August 20, 2021, 04:51:07 PM
As Mainnet approaches Deeper is holding a giveaway for a couple of sold out connect mini's cash prizes equivalent in DPR and some shirts. Apart from that IGG backers for orders up to July I believe have received shipping notifications. Mainnet is still planned for August 28th, doesd seem the Phase 1 Genesis nodes will be late though as they are confirmed to begin shipping on the 23rd. Phase 2 staking is still available end date TBD.

Medium article with Giveaway rules. Also a good place to read previous Deeper articles.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] DEEPER NETWORK | Genesis node staking today, 1000k units free. on: July 27, 2021, 06:35:57 PM
wow, this will be huge as I can see the success of the Indiego campaign with $2,3+ mil support/backed this project.
The DPR seems successful with a $2,4 mil volume daily trade. I will add it to my watch list and grab some on the right time
Not sure if you've followed on Telegram. This past week there have been a lot of announcements and details, as well as changes to their short term rollout.

First some of their supporting documents, as I'm only planning to update the confirmed information. A lot of future plans remain to be finalised, such as rewards for **organic mining
Whitelisting medium article
Genesis node mining explained

Current Events and Dates that have been confirmed
July 27th, 2021 - Genesis node whitelising is open. (Details below)
August 1, 2021 - Staking event for Genesis Node. (Details below)
August 28th, 2021 - Deeper mainnet launch and Node activation

This is being done on the Deeper website link which can be found in the medium article above. This needs to be completed before the staking stage and requires signing up and then providing your personal information. There is no KYC officially done but this is the information they are using to ship out a Genesis node if you are selected. This stage also allows you to create a Deeper Network Wallet, this will be needed as it will tie to your genesis node for your rewards distribution. The whitelisting is being done to link all this together.

The only staking event currently ongoing is for the Genesis node distribution - Phase 1. This is to select the 1000 people that will receive a free Genesis Node. There are 8 tiers each with their own required staking amount and rewards structure. This is outlined in the Genesis node Medium article. Rules to this are only stake exact amount for the tier you will qualify, anything above will not earn rewards, below will leave you disqualified for that tier. Stake from a personal wallet, no exchanges or services you don't control yourt private key. If you aren't selected for Phase-1 you can remain staked for Phase-2 or unstake. If you are in the tier that is the cutoff for receiving a node, then the timestamp used for staking will determine who receives the Nodes. For example if there are 30 nodes left and 200 people staking 20K Deeper for Tier 1, the first 40 timestamped wallets receive the node.

There has been some information about how devices will build up their credit score to earn through organic mining. Rewards distribution begins at a minimum PoCR or Credit score of 100. You earn 1 credit for every 2 days you provide a minimum of 10MB. There is currently no way to grow your credit score faster. This is again all covered in the medium article linked above. The genesis node miners also have a chart displaying what you will earn in DPR during the staking period including the Phase1 staking bonus. They have launched a calculator that breaks down the rewards you can expect for participating in Phase 1 Genesis node mining here.

* Mining in terms of Deeper Network refers to Bandwidth sharing, and rewards from Staking in relation to Genesis nodes (Phase 1 currently)
** Organic mining refers to miners that built their credit score up using Connect devices from 0, or Genesis nodes after the initial stake if they unstake all DPR tokens.

I will continue to pop in and provide information as it firms up.

18  Economy / Service Announcements / CryptoBoreas - Canadian Bitcoin Mining Hosting (CLOSING DOWN!!) on: July 21, 2021, 04:27:36 PM
Hi everyone. I regret to inform you all that we are planning to wind down this hosting business. As some of you may already know the era of the small miner is over. The game is now dominated by the mega miners. What makes it worse is that there is simply almost no interest from small miners to host their gear so the market has dried up.

It has been a fun ride and we thank all of you that have been our customer over the years.

Happy mining and best of luck to you all!
That's sad to see it made official. Like you said end of an era, and a rocky past few years for you to wether. Best of luck to you and your partner with your next venture.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: It's F'n happening ----- Polk VS. Negreanu HUNL Grudge Match on: July 20, 2021, 06:28:43 PM
^  The thing is, when you’re playing low stakes, just play fundamentally solid ABC poker and you’ll win.  Just grind and avoid fancy play syndrome.  But if you’re playing for sh*ts and gigs, then sure..  You go ahead and do the fancy stuff.  Lol. 
Doug Polk had an interview with a couple of people, one from Landon Tice’s team talking about the challenge.  For Doug, he thinks Tice pulled out too early.
Couldn't agree more. I laugh as I play a lot on GGnetwork lately. They give you a decent player profile, 3 or 4 hud stats, and an overall winnings on GG. I always make sure now to double chek the earnings(not the best factor)because under 750 total I dial back all bluffs. I used to get to the river and make a reasonable bluff, only to have been called down 2 or 3 streets with floped 3rd pair or something crazy. Same table will have a guy who's won 200$ and people 200K plus in winnings, wide range of experiences. Love it though because that bit of info everyone gets has helped me adjust massively.

I haven't seen the entire podcast yet. I think it was early to pullout, maybe take a few weeks off and regroup then go at it and at least get over the halfway mark.

I actually have been waiting for the Hellmuth prop bet to get started, where he has to try and be profitable in 25K touneys. Pretty sure it was accepted between him and Dnegs so that will be fun to track.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Funding project development through slot gaming token on: July 20, 2021, 06:11:24 PM
~snip~ Are you able to provide a link so we could look at it in greater detail?
There is definitely a gimmick factor involved, can usually be said about trying something new. I didn't want to drop the name or anything and have it seen as promotion. I'll drop it now though here on page 2, the link to the project being announced by the team.

You buy their native token to play in their slots. I'm assuming part of the tokens you bet will be burned when you said "deflationary".
This is where it becomes confusing. You will get some sort of a ticket to join their partner start up projects or you will be rewarded in another token if you win?
Correct on both accounts the link in the reply breaks it down. Iirc from the "profit" some is burned and some is reinvested in the jackpot prizepool. Yes the prizes are another token, which is a project that launched through their launchpad. That is how they say it funds the ecosystem/community.

~snip~There were so many good projects that failed like hell due to this. If this is different from them and has a risk management factor that allows us to see if their buyback strategy works out better, then I'd definitely be investing in it.
It definitely has it's differences, but is an early concept. There is two sides to this project from an investment standpoint and also how the word investment is used. The  first being one can gamble their tokens hoping for the jackpot, or one can buy and hold against the deflationary aspect and gamble on the success of this project being viable.

If the aim of the project is not to generate money but rather to support the ecosystem, as you said, then what's the profit in it for the users? ~snip~ But why would the players want to participate in this?
A few people touch on this a bit. I don't see a goal/endgame of building a massive user base. I believe hte "profit" or value for the userbase is going to be the same as someone putting a dollar in a slot machine and hoping to pull out 1000, on the other hand as I said above some can hold hoping the concept does appeal to enough users to allow the token value to appreciate.

The only thing that catch my attention is the bolded part, I dont think I have seen this ever or was there anything similar to this before?
Anyway this looks like a decent project and it is a new concept compared with all other gambling token that offer some sort of profit share so far however the crypto gambling market share is actually pretty small compared with fiat gambling market so this project might not actually take off unless it is some sort of unique breakthrough in this industry but this is a pretty interesting concept though
Me neither, that's why I thought it would be a good discussion. I don't know if this concept could work as a business model on it's own. I do think it works well as a small internal support mechanism to generate community involvement. It will be interesting to se if it does grow once it has the ability to launch.

I personally still think that we're quite a while away before we can have a mainstream casino through crowdfunding. The development team definitely needs to show a certain degree of competence and ability to commit capital themselves before any investor would jump into the ecosystem with them.
I completely agree, I just see this as different from running a casino. More borrowing from the widespread appeal of a bit of mindless slots to generate interest in their platform and projects.

IDO? Initial Deflationary Offering? Does it resemble the structure of an ICO (initial coin offering)? Not certain what country their launching out of. The united states regulated and limited ICOs to higher income brackets awhile ago. If IDO falls into a similar category regulatory restrictions could apply.
Initial Dex offering - Similar to ICO's but run through platforms usually creating a middleman and depending on the middleman some degree of security. In the token at least the projects still develop similar to ICO's. So the launchpad that created thids token we are discussing provides the service of offering IDO's. The prizes for this game are tokens from those IDO's that have launched through them. The restrictions only apply to participating in the IDO, not receving tokens after they are on the open market.  I definitely don't think they want to attract strategic gamblers more so use it as a shot take for people, and maybe create a buzz around this and their projects through the game.

So I'm no expert but a few other things to add to this. All the of the prizes and the token itself are curently ERC-20. So cashout and things of the sort are not really an issue, unless liquidity were to be removed from Uniswap. These are all projects built around the Cardano ecosystem, which will require succesful migration once everythig is live. Leading up to this there is a weekly lottery being held that requires staking, similar prizes being given compared to when it operates a slot game. This was announced afterwards, and will come with a 5% token burn upon unstaking.

I am interested to see how this plays out, as they have now created a fairly decent burn event leading into their main launch. Not advice or anything but my own experience I staked for the lottery, and will leave it staked right through, maybe I win a weekly prize maybe not but my opportunity cost for trying will be as low as possible.
