Hello,

BTCBubble is the very first bubble game launched for bitcoin.

I added 9 btc to the jackpot to kickstart it off. Everything is instant.

How does a bubble game work?
Simple, you buy any number of bubbles, then you wait. Eventually when people buy after you they will push your bubbles out and you will receive back what you paid per bubble + 50%. If you are the last person who has bought bubbles when timer reaches zero you will win the jackpot. This encourage spending (the jackpot timer will reset on each spend).

If you like it, you may add a banner to your signature (and even include your own referral link).



Timer is set to 10 hours. Profit 150%.

Learn more by reading the faq.

Have fun Smiley

EDIT july 2011:
We're closed due to trouble with mybitcoin.com, everyone has been refunded and payments has been sent. Will we open again? Maybe, but I would need to recreate the payment system to use bitcoin client in addition to mybitcoin since mybitcoin is not stable enough. At the moment I have decided to prioritize other projects.

Thank you all for participating!

Very neat! I like the twist on the lottery from other existing systems.

EDIT: The advertisement functionality appears not to work. I tried to use my Bitcoin Darts affiliate address and the title "Bitcoin Darts". My ID is "QrwGD" and there is no advertisement.

Hi, glad you like it!

It's not broken, it's just that you have been bursted. Check your mybitcoin/bitcoin wallet, you should have received your money back with profit Smiley

Just to make it clear: When your advertisement is bursted out you will receive 150% of your purchase money back. In your case, 0.04 btc * 150% = 0.06 . At this point your advertisement will also be removed since it is now bursted. In the future I will probably add the possibility to view bursted ads as well.

Weird, I saw it, in fact I even played a round of dart using your link Tongue Maybe it could be a browser error? Please let me know if this continues.

Hmm, well, if you say so. Smiley I wonder... if my transaction hadn't been confirmed, would it have waited to display the advertisement?

EDIT: Heh, figured it out. You might want to rename your "advertisement" column... I'm not sure how, but AdBlock was blocking it in both Chrome 11 beta, and Firefox 4.

No, nothing will be added to the bubble before payment has been received. Once payment is received your advertisement will instantly be added to the bubble with no waiting. What is considered received depends on mybitcoins definition. It seems that they approves payments instantly without confirmation even for bitcoin (at least small amounts). Smiley

Fun idea, and it's moving fast now Wink
If you arrive to the site through a referral link (mine), the links at the bottom to view anything past the first page break though. And I'm not seeing the advertisements either.

Because of how quickly this is moving, you may want to think about shortening the time until jackpot (it's currently 10 hours, but I haven't seen it go lower than 9 hours, 56 minutes.)

I changed the class from "advertisement" to something else, please let me know if AdBlock still blocks it.

Maybe, I was thinking about it too, but the game seems to have calmed down now and the jackpot is currently under 6 hours.

Anyways was amazing how fast it moved yesterday, jackpot even tripled to 27 btc! Great fun Smiley

Yeah, working for me now as well.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

How about rotating banners from advertisers at the top of the site? The more bubbles you buy, the better your odds that someone will see your banner.

Still around.

Great idea, I have added rotating ads weighted on spent amount. The more you have spent in the bubble, the more likely your advertisement will appear. If you have not entered url and/or banner we will display a default advertisement (operation fabulous).

In the FAQ, you outline when the timer for the jackpot changes, but you start off with "100 BTC". Do you mean to say "100 BTC and lower", or is there no change between "0 BTC - 200 BTC"?

How many days on average do you expect each game to take?

There is no change between 0 BTC - 100 BTC, as soon as we reach 100 BTC it will be changed. That said I will be making some changes next round (not this round, to be fair with whoever invested I do not change the rules in a round).

The changes will be that the timer will decrease possibly on a daily basis and cost of participating will be adjusted up so that it will be more costly to do "jackpot hunting". That will help push people out and reduce the odds slightly. Right now it cost you 0.01 btc to try and win 33 bitcoins. That won't keep the game going fast enough.

As for how long this round will last I have no idea, but on avarage with the new rules implemented I imagine maybe 3-4 days on avarage.

Is there some way we can see the complete history, including burst bubbles?

My first few must have burst as I can't see them in the list, however I haven't seen any payments come in to my wallet for them yet.
