Not being an affiliate I would feel like they are taking my money out of my hand's and into someone whom I never met?I'm having a heck of a problem with bitcoin being my only method to be paid winning's from accredited site's?
I swear it seem's like they have no idea ,How to pay me in bitcoin's? I give them generated code and they give me denial's stating that the code is not a crypto-address?
I have tried 3 times now and wasted 144 hour's just to find out that they don't seem to understand the bitcoin code?I have sent copies of chat from my Circle CS and in it they state that the code's are valid and that there is no reason for denial? This is not easy as i can not let the cat out of the bag as to where the fund's are coming from?
And now a long week-end and nothing, back into the pending business day's for review? They have reviewed it 2 prior time's and said pay it and then nope it's not bitcoin code?
I will be honest I do not envy you guy's with 10's of thousand's to be paid?Good Luck! Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff
What is the barrier to using Bitcoin direct, rather than going through this Circle account? One does not NEED a third party Bitcoin wallet, one can create one's own locally, although for security reasons it is suggested that it's kept on a Flash drive (and backed up), rather than left lying around on the hard drive of a PC connected to the internet.
Good point vinyl.
But it is my understanding that you must have a bitcoin wallet to do business?Such as Circle/Core/Blither/Blockchain. I'am new to this like a new born babe.
But it is clear to me a laymen that I need a wallet to do business with them? If there is a way to create a wallet that will generate bitcoin code then more power to you. I'am not able to do this as it would appear to be a techy thing and I do not have the know how?
The wallet's are free and you only get hit for fee's if you use a CC and the cost of switching bitcoin's to US or Euro? Who get's that is a mystery?
But I do agree why do I have to use bitcoin? Well because being a US player my option's are sh-t as to what I can use to move my winning's to my hand's.This is to a degree my own fault because I choose to make a few buck's in a air of illegal gambling site's and jumping thru hoop's to get paid?
The real question is it worth it? I at this time am not sure?
I'm owed $2400.00 by a accredited casino that has lost the only real payout option I had (cardpay) and they are hell bent to try to drive me to play it all back. But they are very wrong I will wait until they realize that the code's are valid and they pay me. Period!
But truly if you have a way to use a wallet that is created by you and make's the payment's to you via bitcoin's I would very much like to talk about it.PM me if you have a easy way to get it done please?
Thank's again guy's I have had a hell of a week and it's not over yet? But it will be soon?Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff
P.S I believe that bitcoin is a system and the wallet's are the way to gain access? I may be wrong thou?
I guess I'm an outlier on this one, as I see the requirement as reasonable and not so onerous. It's tough for some operators, especially the larger ones, to pay U.S. affiliates, because banks don't want to touch the money, even though there's nothing against the law about paying for advertising.
To make the change, I simply opened a wallet with a Bitcoin wallet service, Bovada pays me in Bitcoin, and the wallet service *automatically* converts the Bitcoins to U.S. dollars. So I never actually hold Bitcoins, and never have to deal with them at all. I can then transfer the dollars to my bank whenever I want. It's really painless. It never occurred to me to be up in arms about the change.
I'm not convinced. Bitcoin is just a currency, just dollars, Euros, or pounds. Betting Partners could have told me that going forward they're going to pay me in Euros, pounds, or yen instead of dollars, and it would have been the same thing. Like I said, my wallet provider (essentially a bank) converts the Bitcoin that BP pays me into dollars automatically. I never hold Bitcoin, I never have to deal with Bitcoin.
As for taxes, that argument just seems bizarre. If you're not hiding income, then you simply account for your income, no matter where it's held. That's pretty simple.
All in all, this really seems like a non-issue to me.
What these affiliates really need is proper advice, otherwise they will have to walk away from the income they are getting from players they have already sent, even if they have decided to drop the program. US players may need to learn Bitcoin too, but the fact that many of the best casinos are reluctant to offer it even though there has been a major loss of options for withdrawals does little to enhance it's credibility as an alternative.
