How to fund an account in a poker room via Bitcoin (BTC): detailed instructions …

Since the question from which this article begins was asked by Pokeroff players of different limits, we decided to collect for you detailed instructions on our partner rooms, which, on February 26, 2021, offer users to make transactions in cryptocurrency.

What should you consider before making a crypto deposit?

Although information on what to do with cryptocurrency can now be obtained from literally every iron, it often remains inaccessible for Russian-speaking poker players due to the small conglomeration of crypto-enthusiastic poker players and the insufficient level of proficiency in foreign languages, on which most of the useful materials are published. So many players have no idea how to ensure the safety of their own funds and what nuances cannot be ignored when dealing with cryptocurrency in poker. The short list includes five points – if you are an experienced crypto user, you can go to the next section.

# 1 Always check the minimum amounts in your wallet and room before depositing

The size of the commission and the minimum amount for the withdrawal of a crypt differ between wallets and networks through which the transfer is made. In addition, some rooms also charge players an internal commission for converting crypto into the main account currency. So before you start going through the steps to make a deposit to your room, check what expenses you have to incur to get money in this way.

Why is it important? Let me explain with an example: when I was preparing this article, I was withdrawing $ 60 to GGPOKEROK via Binance, but only $ 35 was credited to my account – because the commission for transferring through the BTC network is $ 25, regardless of the amount. However, there are a great variety of wallets, they are divided into different types (hot, warm, cold) and there are their commissions – so be sure to check them before making a deposit.

# 2 Remember that the transfer fee is deducted by the wallet from the transfer amount

This means that when you send, for example, $ 60 to the room through a crypt, you will not receive $ 60 to your account – part of this amount will be withheld by the wallet or the exchange in the form of a commission, and a part may be lost on conversion fees.

# 3 Don’t forget about crypto volatility

Despite the existence of stablecoins – cryptocurrencies that are pegged to the dollar by their exchange rate and therefore change less than others – the main crypto for most rooms is bitcoin, and it is extremely volatile. If you are going to deposit with a crypt, take a look at the course – it may have just jumped and the most reasonable option (if, of course, it does not matter to you) would be to wait for a more profitable rate. It is the volatility that causes the short duration of the address given to you for the transaction.

# 4 Don’t manually enter addresses and amounts in the crypt

As you will see below, initiating a deposit to a room in a crypt includes an automatic transfer of the desired amount in dollars, euros, rubles and hryvnia to a crypt. Moreover, each room has the functionality to copy the data required for translation in one click by clicking on a special symbol or a line with information. This was introduced specifically so that you do not make a mistake, manually retyping the long number for your transaction and does not send money to an unknown destination.

# 5 Do not try to make a deposit twice on the same wallet in the room

When you send an application for a deposit at the checkout, most rooms give you a limited time for transfer – from 10 to 15 minutes. After this time, without receiving greetings from your wallet, the room recognizes the transaction as unsuccessful, and having received it, it considers it perfect and destroys the address that it created for you. This means that you will not be able to transfer the crypto to it again and for another deposit you will have to initiate the process again at the cashier of the room. If you are persistent and try to replenish the account at the old address, at best, the wallet will inform you that you gave it irrelevant data, and at worst, it will send your money to a non-existent account without the possibility of a refund, because only the recipient can return the crypt after confirming the transaction …
