BalloonBit has brought a new level of diversity into the Bitcoin gambling universe. With its topnotch game that offers fun and uniqueness to break away from the clichés of Bitcoin casinos, BalloonBit can be fairly considered an agent of true innovation.
Speaking with Damian Williams, we will learn of the motivations that powered this idea to be realized into a full-grown ingenious source of Bitcoin entertainment that many have come to love.
How did you first become interested in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?
I remember seeing the video on Bitcoin.org a long time back, and while it definitely interested me, Bitcoin slipped my mind quickly. It took a few years until the whispers of cryptocurrencies became louder and I paid more attention.
How long did it take you to launch your website?
Development came somewhat slowly at first, taking in all of what Bitcoin is. It takes some serious time to wrap your head around it. Approximately 3 months into our programmer’s private testing we released our first version to the public.
What is the best thing about your website?
We feel that while offering a unique experience in the crowded gambling space is integral to long-term success; it’s fairly rare to see such an eye catching design, free of the clichés most other websites are afflicted with.
What can you say about gambling laws and cryptocurrency regulations?
We feel that cryptocurrencies in general are making a very large leap forward in mankind’s existence on several levels. Still, much of the stigma needs to be shed away in order for some truly wonderful ideas to flourish.
What do you think Bitcoin needs to become a more prominent and reliable form of payment?
We do feel that with a more accepting legislative base on a global scale, Bitcoin would obviously take off, and in turn, a more user-friendly shell can develop around it.
What have been the greatest accomplishments you’ve had since the website’s inception? What has been the most surprising challenge in your project?
I would say our greatest accomplishment to date would be that fact that brought a pipedream of an idea to a tangible reality. To date, adversity hasn’t really been surprising.
What characteristics of your website do you consider groundbreaking?
In addition to a really ingenious game, BalloonBit has launched BalloonClicks, a sister site with a shared account, which allows players to earn their starting balance by viewing some of the products and services our advertisers offer. What makes BalloonClicks revolutionary is that we pay a whopping 90% of our advertising revenues to our clickers.
How secure is your casino platform?
Right from the beginning security has consistently been at the forefront of our minds. We’ve got a fairly strong system built, and any attempts to circumvent the code will come to light very quickly, especially when removing funds from the website.
What other projects do you have in the works?
At the moment we’re monitoring our user base on a macro level, collecting statistics in order to be prepared for increased demand with things like more server space and quality customer service as our game garners market share. I’ll let you in on a little secret… let’s call it a leak of sorts, Provably Fair Player vs Player Mode is coming very soon!
Do you accept US players?
Our platform is open to the world as a whole, and we’ve made no special rules or privileges concerning any players, the US included. If a country or region has restrictions on Bitcoin or online gambling, the player could be considered breaking that particular law. Thus, we still require our users to acknowledge that they’re not in one of these areas before registering.
