okay folks. So now that we've smoothed out the bumps, we're ready for round 2, and we're open to suggestions as to how to use our platform to promote BlackCoin. Afaik we're at this point the largest merchant other than an exchange doing business in the space.

We chose BlackCoin for a reason, which I think is pretty obvious to everyone here. But the coin does need wider exposure. That's where I think we can help.

We would be happy to set something up like a BlackCoin-only deposit bonus, or a BlackCoin poker tournament where coins get mixed and people get to know each other. Tell us what you want, and we will be happy to make the casino a social space for the fledgling community -- as well as give something back.

One thing we've considered is a discount for our existing Bitcoin users who decide to withdraw in BlackCoin -- effectively an added incentive. But there are a lot of things that can be done.

Everyone should feel free to PM me with thoughts and we wil announce something later in the week once we've sorted through the possibilities. We like this coin a lot and we're proud to be representing it!

also look whats holding price up. buy orders for .18 blackcoin

BC valued at around 3.9k when not taking those into account. Significant profit over yesterday close Smiley This coin is only gaining value. It keeps rising dayt after day, even if you take these p&d bubbles into account.

I'll say this... it's early yet, but if we thought it were a bubble we wouldn't have started accepting it. I think it's got a long way to run. If it's 10x its value next week, I still won't think it's a bubble. Instead, it's going to bust all the other alt-coin bubbles... which is absolutely brilliant.

Just a note about our deposits -- we don't auto-check our daemon because it operates on a separate server. So once coins are sent, players should click "submit" in the deposit box.

However... we're seeing a bit of a delay right now in picking up the transactions off the network. We don't require any confirmations, it just seems like it's taking awhile (several minutes in one case) for our wallet to actually see the transaction. So...just be patient if you click submit a few times and it hasn't shown up yet Tongue

Great news about the site, but isn't no-confirm insecure?

Good question! We handle withdrawals manually, and the corresponding deposit must have 3 confirmations before we'll process a withdrawal.

Yes, your original Bitcoin casino (the first ever, since July, 2011), has started accepting our second-ever currency: BlackCoin. We think BlackCoin has a great future ahead of it as a Proof-of-Stake currency to accompany Bitcoin's Proof-of-Work.

Come check out all our multiplayer games (blackjack, roulette, craps, unique slots and more) in either currency at https://strikesapphire.com!

Big announcement: StrikeSapphire casino now accepts BlackCoin! Visit https://strikesapphire.com ...(not available in the US)...

Blackjack, craps, roulette, video poker, original slots, 3-card poker, keno, texas holdem and more have arrived for BC!

StrikeSapphire opened the first Bitcoin casino in 2011, with 25 multiplayer games including 9 poker variants, and the only browser-based casino software to let players open six tables of different games in the same window. We started in Bitcoin, and never accepted LiteCoin or any altcoins, but we have constantly been scanning the field for something worthy of our attention.

We've really liked what we've seen thus far with BlackCoin. We like what we see as a separate PoS ethos emerging from the community that could serve as a moderating influence on speculation and even have a positive effect by knocking out other coins that are just pump & dump operations. We're also impressed at BlackCoin's resilience. We really like the basic structure behind BlackCoin and we think it's the only one right now that has a future. Its future might be even brighter than Bitcoin's, to tell the truth. These are early days, but what we see from the BlackCoin community is the same kind of resolve we saw back then, and it's sold us on the importance of being the first casino into this currency.

We're therefore pleased to announce that we have chosen BlackCoin to be our next deposit / withdrawal method beyond Bitcoin. At this point we are still not considering any other altcoins!

Unlike a lot of fly-by-night, anonymously run sites, StrikeSapphire denominates our in-house currency in USD. Our site is not accessible from the US. We also block proxies. We have always operated in full compliance with the law. So unfortunately, BlackCoiners in the States won't be able to join up. However, this means that the BlackCoin community will get the benefit of the best-run Bitcoin casino operating since Year 1, and also effectively a new conduit into both USD and Bitcoin. You cannot, though, use us as a trading house or hedge. If you deposit, you have to play. Long-term holdings will be returned to players.

So far we have only taken Bitcoin for deposit/withdrawal, but having multiple currency deposits is exactly why we have always kept a fiat in-house currency, despite some objections. Note that we do keep a spread on the withdrawals (the difference between Bitstamp bid/ask for BTC, and in the case of BC, 2%).

BlackCoin has a long way to go, but I see a very bright future for it, and I'm very happy with its structure and what I've seen in this community. Our little team are a non-conformist bunch, and everyone thought Bitcoin would be a disaster when we launched with it in July, 2011; and so I'm proud to lead the way into BlackCoin and break new ground on this the same way did then.

Deposits are already up and running, and tomorrow we'll announce the first BlackCoin poker freeroll. 'Til then, enjoy the games!reeroll.

'Til then, enjoy the games, and spread the word!

Can anyone help with this? I just built blackcoind to try it out. After a few hours, I'm sync'ed with the blockchain, as the last timestamp is 03/21/14 22:03:20...one minute ago... but I'm still getting "error: no response from server" when I issue commands.

This is running under ubuntu 12.10. Still occasionally flushing the wallet, but it's not loading any new blocks except as they come out it seems. When I built it I had to run apt-get install libdb++-dev instead of the suggested lib (but it compiled, so I doubt that's the issue).

I'm kind of at a loss.

Are you sure you are in the blockchaind  directory?  you wan to call blockchain/src/blockchaind getblockcount.


I just got done doing a Ubuntu 12.10 build.

The binary's compiled elsewhere, but there's no way to run getblockcount if the server's not responding. Reading the debug.log the most recent block height I've got is 35740. There's clearly some bullshit happening with -1 and 0000000000 being spewed out of this sucker, but hopefully the devs will have an answer...

you have to call blackcoind from where it compiled.

I know how to call the binary. That's not the problem.

# ./blackcoind getblockheight

Try to delete the BC data on your computer and reopen the client.

what data. The whole blockchain I just downloaded?

Just a side-story here:

I'm the founder of StrikeSapphire. In 2008-'09, when we were building our software (pre-Bitcoin), we contacted a number of Indian tribes about using our software as an in-house gaming system on a private intranet, for their hotel/casino guests. This generally flew in the face of some regulations stating that gaming revenue networks can't be connected to external, insecure devices, which in turn would have meant a large investment in devices for the customers to use (i.e. they couldn't just use their phone or laptop to connect to a gaming revenue network). Besides the in-house issues, at the time, and still, US tribes do not have a licensing scheme for intra-state or offshore online gaming, the way the Kahnawake do in Canada.

In other words, we didn't get real far talking to the tribes and most of the tribal councils didn't give us the time of day. Vegas hotels were more interested, but had similar issues, and it was before intrastate online gaming was even on the table. Then Bitcoin came along and we changed our focus.

We were the first full casino to accept BTC, in 2011. We are the only one that has never taken US players. And so I was really excited when I first heard about Mazacoin, as it presents the idea of tying together our commitment to crypto-currency with some of our original concepts for finding a legal framework within the States. I picked up a few thousand coins and started looking into implementing it in our casino. And I tried to get in touch with Mr. Harris, in the belief that we could finally, using the coin as a means of payment for a US-facing site, get a legal footprint on American soil with the blessing of a tribal gaming administration. It was a long shot, but unfortunately Mr. Harris never responded to our request.

I still think there is great potential for MZC even if it is only accepted as an informal payment among tribes, not officially sanctioned. I think the hard work to be done is obviously getting it into the hands of everyday people and getting merchants to accept it.

We stand ready to accept MZC when we feel that things have stabilized and there is a solid plan going forward. We continue to be interested in working with a tribal gaming commission to make StrikeSapphire a regulated online wing of an existing licensed brick-and-mortar Indian casino, and we think accepting MZC would be a milestone on that path. However, at this point I would like to have more confidence that there is interest from the community, the founders and the Lakota in growing the currency with tribal licensed e-gaming in mind.

I guess that's the most effective way to keep your hands strong. Cheesy

Hehe. I'm gonna have a Popeye forearm for that little bitch if I ever cross his path. And does wanting to tie up Tihan Seale and take a piss on him make me gay? I hope not.

It's always good to have at least one all-out grudge. Takes the pressure off to get agitated about the merely annoying, e.g. bitfetch going down. 0.8 BTC? That's like a decent cable package if I lived in the States. I'm mostly pissed that I need to find a new way to watch HBO.

Lol. Bitcoin is evil. When you made 'nuff money with your business, you close shop. Heard that about a good restaurant that accepted bitcoin for a year, too  Grin

If .8 BTC is enough cause for an operator to quit the game, we're in a lot more trouble than I thought lol. I can't seriously believe that whoever bought and owns this site now would have paid for it just to trash it like that. Maybe they're dead or something.
