you can begin to use it for poker room there are plenty of them, but last time i visited one they appear to be unfrequented

there were few players, it's sad because bitcoin and poker go very well together, no documentations are needed, cards verification, crap like that

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on installing Bitcoin Core. I would have gone for a easier option.. Online wallet or Coinbase account. It depends on your choice... really.

How familiar are you with Bitcoin? It will help us to give you better answers to your questions. There are some good and some bad poker sites out there, so chose wisely.  Wink

Do you only play poker or do you play other games too? Give us a bit more info to work with.  Grin

First of all welcome!

Although it is important that full nodes (Bitcoin Core) clients are running I would not recommend it to new people.
It takes a long time to synchronize and if you don't backup the wallet.dat file safely you risk loosing all your bitcoins.

I would recommend an SPV client like Electrum.
There is no need to wait for it to synchronize and as long as you remember the seed (a few words that you can write down) you will be able to recover all your bitcoins.

If you find my post useful send some BTC: 167XM1Za8aG9CdbYuHFMpL2kvPsw6uC8da

 Yes few players, but rake is lower, and bigger poker rooms starts to accept Bitcoin, really a good thing.

 Hey Kprawn- not very familiar, just readding the forums collecting information, taking notes. I will use mostly for poker as its the only thing i am good at playing 6+ years.  Smiley

 Hi Torus,

  Now it took 3-5min to synchronize when i started it this morning. I have encrypted my wallet + made a backup and stored it in USB. I will try Electrum also Smiley

It is important but it isn't important if OP doesn't open port 8333 to allow nodes to connect to it. However, you do need to backup the wallet.dat file again once you have made 100 transactions.

SPV clients do not provide the same level of security as Bitcoin Core.


Good luck on your poker. I like cloudbet a lot with their live dealer feature! Do give it a try.

I'm curious, have you turned to Bitcoin because you couldn't play poker with fiat?

Also, you can browse the gambling section of this forum to find a poker site that suits you well. You obviously won't find anything as good as PokerStars, but most sites are good enough.

Actually it is not the number of transactions but the number of addresses you have used.
The Bitcoin Core client creates 100 addresses when you create the wallet.
Every time you use an address a new one is created.
But your backup will not include the new ones until you make a new backup.

P.S.
Better safe the file on the different devices.
And if you can keep them in two locations.

Wallet does pregenerates 100 wallet but it would be renewed every time you do any activity or rather, key in your password and it tries to maintain a 100 pregenerated address key pool everytime. Since change address is one of the pregenerated address everytime a transaction is made, you do have to back it up every 100 transaction

Hello mate and welcome to the forum and to the Bitcoin world! I suggest that you read, learn and research about Bitcoin to get yourself familiar with this amazing technology.

Feel free to ask questions if you don't understand something. And do not hesitate to bring us a friend or two of yours to the Bitcoin world!

Cheers!

First welcome to community.If you want to play a poker you can try bitcoin video to play poker but you need to earn bitcoin first in any way like joining campaign or solving a faucet rotator.. I have experience in bitcoin core and its too long to install because my internet is slow so i use online wallet like coinbase...
