We just added a new market for everyone to play and earn with: BTCUSD, or “Bitcoin“.
Bitcoin is a digital currency. You can use bitcoins to buy things on the internet and you can also convert them to and from other currencies. But bitcoins are not printed by a central bank, instead they are “mined” using software. They’re very hard – maybe impossible – to forge.
Bitcoin is 24×7
You can now play games and earn points on the weekends! This is something people have been asking for a long time and we’re happy to bring it you finally.
Bitcoin is not just another currency
Bitcoin’s fundamentals such as the money supply are very well known, so the price is almost completely driven by human psychology. There have been some amazing spikes and crashes even in just the last few months. And now you can profit from them!
Even though Bitcoin markets are open 24×7, we stop all BTC games at 9pm UTC on a Friday each week – just the same as normal currency markets. (We might remove that restriction later but doing it this way meant that we could release it to you earlier!) Unlike currencies though, you can restart trading 30 minutes later, so for most of the weekend you can start to earn points and try and get a head-start on the next week’s total.
Also Bitcoin markets are not as liquid as the currencies you’ve seen in GAIN before now. What it means is that, for now, you won’t see the price update quite as often.
Can I get paid in Bitcoin?
For now you can only withdraw your earnings using Paypal, in US Dollars. If you really want this feature, mail [email protected] and let us know.
