We are excited to announce our poker room will undergo a general currency switch. Players will now be able to play in μBTC. This major change came after months of discussions whilst looking for ways to make crypto poker more available to more recreational players without losing the thrill of the game.
What is μBTC?
The original Bitcoin concept was for the crypto coin to increase in value overtime. This is the main reason there will never be over 21 million bitcoins, therefore there appeared the sudden need to break down each unit into smaller pieces – mBTC and μBTC.
How do BetcoinPoker.AG players benefit from the switch?
When switching the currency to one-millionth of the Bitcoin, we reduce the risk of losing big time by 1,000,000. Now you can bet more, win more, and ultimately risk less.
- BTC = 1 Bitcoin
- mBTC = 0.001 BTC
- μBTC = 0.000001 BTC
BetcoinPoker.AG’s technical team will start the currency switch procedure on Tuesday, October 1st, at 00:00 am EDT. The expected downtime is between 2 and 4 hours.
There will be no changes in current tournaments’s guaranteed rewards.
