    About BlakeBitcoin

    About BlakeBitcoin and Cryptocurrency:

    BlakeBitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency which are innovative new types of digital money. They allow for instant peer-to-peer transactions online (send money directly to your family and friends), borderless payments (cryptocurrency can be used in every country), and fraud protection (transactions are verified and recorded), making them easy and safe to use.

    Cryptocurrencies such as BlakeBitcoin are open-source, and no individual or government can own or control them. Since they operate without central authority, they are not subject to the political or economic turbulence of countries. Cryptocurrencies derive their value from their user base; as the demand for a currency increases, so does the price. There is only a limited number of each cryptocurrency in circulation, and new coins are usually created at a predictable and decreasing rate.

    At Blake Games, we use a form of cryptocurrency called BlakeBitcoin which is similar to Bitcoin. It differs from Bitcoin in that it uses a different underlying encryption algorithm called blake256r8. The blake256r8 algorithm is shared by 5 other cryptocurrencies named Blakecoin, Photon, Electron, Lithium, and Universalmolecule.

    BlakeBitcoin will allow you to compete with or against your friends and family in video game tournaments and send near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. You will be able to use BlakeBitcoins to purchase upgrades online, or you can download your BlakeBitcoin to your computer so they are yours to keep.

    Below are instructions for getting started:

    1. Download BlakeBitcoin wallet. You can see the excellent tutorial by SidGrip on how to set it up. Once you’ve installed the wallet on your computer, it will generate a BlakeBitcoin address (similar to an email address) for you to share with people in order to send or receive payments.  It is very important to encrypt your wallet with a password.  Otherwise, viruses can steal your coins by copying your wallet file.
    2. To encrypt your wallet, go to Settings -> Encrypt Wallet on your wallet software.  Make sure you remember the password. Nobody can recover it for you if you lose the password.
    3. Need to check your balance? This can be done in the block chain, which is a shared public balance book. All completed transactions are listed there, and new transactions are verified against the balance of the owner.  You can check the BlakeBitcoin blockchain with explorers such as the one here:  BlakeBitcoin Explorer
    4. How do I know if my transactions are safe? Each wallet has a secret piece of data which is used to sign transactions, proving that they come from the rightful owner. This signature also prevents the transaction from being altered at any point. Then, through a verification process called mining, the transaction is confirmed and posted to the public ledger.

    BlakeBitcoin and Blake Games

    April 29, 2018

    Happy to report that our game servers have now logged 30,000 players and 2,500,000 kills in April. The back-end development is going well and the focus now is on revamping the website in preparation for alpha testing. Aiming for June but more details will come once ready.

    After discussing with long-time Blake community members including BlueDragon, SidGrip, and Josh, we had decided to use BlakeBitcoin (BBTC) as the coin for the BlakeGames platform. Marketing-wise, it affords the most similarity to Bitcoin and likely easier adoption of non-crypto gamers. It is relatively rare with merge-mine and fast transactions.

    SidGrip, Josh, and I have agreed to contribute 250,000 coins each for a pool of 750,000 BBTC to use as rewards for collaborators, make bounties, and for promotions such as prizes for playing and game tournaments.

    In addition, we are planning to further develop blakebitcoin including new wallets, a website, and new bounties. Unfortunately, the creator of bbtc has decided not to participate so we will be doing this on our own. Support will also be provided for bbtc price on C-PATEX, our exchange of choice at www.c-patex.com.

    Down the road, we may even reboot some of the projects from electron such as a twitter tip bot and peer-to-peer coin trading like with BlakeTrader and ShapeShift.

    We now have 9 members on our core-team (BT, Josh, MrF, BB, M, MK, Cody, Jerry, and David). We want to thank the community for your support! Exciting times ahead!
