I scored a win.  I emailed Chess.com through my account and convinced them to accept Bitcoin as payment.

Enjoy! Cheesy

Yes, perhaps the largest online chess site in the world. I noticed they were on the Gambit board for BitNopoly.

Awesome! I contacted them quite a while ago about this. And I guess so did many others. Perhaps your inquiry was the last straw. Good job! Grin

Now, let's consider which yearly plan I'll take. Looking forward to play my first Bitcoin-funded game of chess.

No, I'm sure we all contributed.  I was just excited when they emailed me to tell me about it Cheesy

By the way, PM me your chess.com handle if you want to play a match.  But take it easy on me, I'm learning Smiley

Congratulations. Also been trying this, with no real success so far, but I'd love if we could keep an email template updated for non-native people like me who are bound to write senseless shit and scare people out rather than help.  Grin
Made a post here, could you pretty please share your approach?

Does anybody know place, or will be that place a chess.com, to play for money ( bitcoin )?

Or any alt-coins.

To make a bet, e.g. 5BTC, look for opponent with bet at least 10BTC, who agree to play with me for only my 5BTC, 5 vs 10, i win, profit 10BTC.

This has been discussed before, but as far as I know nothing ever came of it.  The problem is preventing cheating.  Even if your opponent isn't directly using an engine to beat you, he could just imitate your moves against a chess engine on a 2nd computer and move according to the engine's responses.

@the joint, what about bullets? You know 2+1, game for time, tournaments, etc.

They have various levels of subscription memberships which give you access to engine analysis, video lessons, etc.  To play is free.

That might be doable, but do you really want to bet on a game and be subject to lag, mouse slips, etc.?
