why do you need the website to play as btc addresses stay the same don't they?
That's 100% correct.
Yep well if it is true I think the market made a fair deduction sort of well yes the US is gone from site access but as reddit points out
The addresses don't change so bought in if it's timed with btct.co going down for a bit there due to DDOS
You don't even need a proxy to bet. all you do is send btc to an address. the website is just for looks and stats.
This point is key. Ironically for the US the only thing that will be blocked is the marketing arm of the business and operations will continue with the actual gambling aspect regardless.
Plus, someone "unaffiliated" to Satoshidice could easily post a HOWTO on various forums. It'd be "out of their control" to censor the address information. It's already available through blockchain.info and other places.
Guess I'll see in the morning or tomorrow when the change will happen if I bet on it right or just got the new market price
Might just be a bit too much hype and panic this time the fundamental hasn't changed the business is still running day to day operations and renewed its web address already lol...
